Looking for Slave Consistency: Say Yes to –read-only and No to SUPER and –slave-skip-errors

The biggest concern with a slave is to ensure your data is consistent with the master! End of story!

3 of the biggest things I see when dealing with out-of-sync slaves:

  1. Many users do not use the --read-only option on their slaves.
  2. Some of those who do often have numerous users with SUPER who can still perform writes.
  3. Many users simply use --slave-skip-errors=… to avoid common errors.

Of course, if you have a slave, definitely use the --read-only option.

However, SUPER users can still write on slaves with --read-only, so blindly granting SUPER to all users just to save a little time when creating users won’t help. I’d suggest to use SUPER as sparingly as possible (not to mention it’s good for security also).

And the use of --slave-skip-errors=… is generally just a quick fix to avoid errors on the slave, but a sure fire way to end up with inconsistent …

Setting up Master-Slave Replication with MySQL

Replication enables data from one MySQL server to be replicated on one or more other MySQL servers. Replication is mostly used as scale-out solution. In such a solution, all writes and updates take place on the master server, while reads take place on one or more slaves. This model is actually known as master-slave replication and this is the kind of replication that I will be setting up in this post.
