MySQL 5.6 Replication: Reliability, Self-Healing & Crash Recovery

MySQL replication is the foundation for building rock-solid, highly available database services. This presentation details the enhancements made to replication in MySQL 5.6, including:

  • Replication Event Checksums, detecting and prevent corruption of the replication stream
  • Self-Healing Masters, automatically recovering the binary log in the event of a crash.
  • Crash-Safe Slaves, providing self healing by automatically recovering replication streams in the event of a crash

Collectively, these new features enhance the reliability and integrity of MySQL replication, while reducing DevOps overhead
