Backup all mysql databases to individual files on a remote server

for I in $(mysql -e 'show databases' -u root --password=root -s --skip-column-names); do mysqldump -u root --password=root $I | gzip -c | ssh "cat > /remote/$I.sql.gz"; done
It grabs all the database names granted for the $MYSQLUSER and gzip them to a remote host via SSH.
