Usage of Row-Based Logging and Replication

Major changes in the replication environment and in the behavior of applications can result from using row-based logging (RBL) or row-based replication (RBR) rather than statement-based logging or replication. This section describes a number of issues known to exist when using row-based logging or replication, and discusses some best practices for taking advantage of row-based logging and replication.

For additional information, see Section 16.1.2, “Replication Formats”, and Section, “Advantages and Disadvantages of Statement-Based and Row-Based Replication”.

For information about issues specific to MySQL Cluster Replication (which depends on row-based replication), see Section 17.6.3, “Known Issues in MySQL Cluster Replication”.
