13.4.2.8 STOP SLAVE Syntax

STOP SLAVE [thread_types]

thread_types:
    [thread_type [, thread_type] ... ]

thread_type: IO_THREAD | SQL_THREAD

Stops the slave threads. STOP SLAVE requires the SUPER privilege. Recommended best practice is to execute STOP SLAVE on the slave before stopping the slave server (see Section 5.1.10, “The Shutdown Process”, for more information).

Like START SLAVE, this statement may be used with the IO_THREAD and SQL_THREAD options to name the thread or threads to be stopped.

Note

The transactional behavior of STOP SLAVE changed in MySQL 5.0.82. Previously, it took effect immediately; beginning with MySQL 5.0.82, it waits until the current replication event group (if any) has finished executing, or until the user issues a KILL QUERY or KILL CONNECTION statement. (Bug #319, Bug #38205)

In old versions of MySQL (before 4.0.5), this statement was called SLAVE STOP. This usage is still accepted in MySQL 5.0 for backward compatibility, but is deprecated and is removed in MySQL 5.6.
