filter_mysqlbinlog - Trimming ROLLBACK statements and equivalent BINLOG events

FILTER_MYSQLBINLOG(1p) User Contributed Perl Documentation FILTER_MYSQLBINLOG(1p)

NAME

filter_mysqlbinlog - Trimming ROLLBACK statements and equivalent BINLOG events added by mysqlbinlog. This script is now obsolete.

SYNOPSIS

mysqlbinlog binary_or_relay_log_file | filter_mysqlbinlog
Note that this script is now obsolete and not used by MHA by default.

DESCRIPTION

mysqlbinlog command provided by Oracle implicitly adds ROLLBACK statements and equivalent BINLOG events. But this causes problems when recovering slave servers. To recover slaves, MHA might need to apply the following binlog events.
1) Relay log events from Relay_Log_Pos to the end of the relay log file
2) Differential relay log events from the latest slave
3) Differential binary log events from the dead master mysqlbinlog command needs to be executed on these files separately. If a transaction does not end by 1) or 2), implicit ROLLBACK event rolls back the transaction, which will result in inconsistency. filter_mysqlbinlog is a tool to fix this issue. Note that ROLLBACK statements themselves are added in usual situations. For example, when you execute 1. BEGIN; 2. Updating transactional tables 3. Updating non-transactional tables 4. ROLLBACK, a ROLLBACK statement is written to the binary log to rollback transactional queries. This is normal situation so filter_mysqlbinlog must not remove all ROLLBACK events.
Note that this script is now obsolete and not used by MHA by default.
