Re: Fwd: possible bug in MySQL 5.6.7-rc slave replication crash safety?


Hello Kristian,

Thank you for the reply. I want to make sure I understand this
correctly. Is the planned design for crash safe replication to be that
the slave must have the binary log enabled, so that slaves may use the
GTID and XA to ensure that the slave and master are in sync? If the
binary log is not enabled, then the slaves are not crash safe. Is my
understanding correct?
