16.7.7. Using Two Replication Channels

In a more complete example scenario, we envision two replication channels to provide redundancy and thereby guard against possible failure of a single replication channel. This requires a total of four replication servers, two masters for the master cluster and two slave servers for the slave cluster. For purposes of the discussion that follows, we assume that unique identifiers are assigned as shown here:

Server ID Description
1 Master - primary replication channel (M)
2 Master - secondary replication channel (M')
3 Slave - primary replication channel (S)
4 Slave - secondary replication channel (S')

Setting up replication with two channels is not radically different from setting up a single replication channel. First, the mysqld processes for the primary and secondary replication masters must be started, followed by those for the primary and secondary slaves. Then the replication processes may be initiated by issuing the START SLAVE statement on each of the slaves. The commands and the order in which they need to be issued are shown here:

  1. Start the primary replication master:

    shellM> mysqld --ndbcluster --server-id=1 \ 
                   --log-bin --binlog-format=row &
    
  2. Start the secondary replication master:

    shellM'> mysqld --ndbcluster --server-id=2 \
                   --log-bin --binlog-format=row &
    
  3. Start the primary replication slave server:

    shellS> mysqld --ndbcluster --server-id=3 \
                   --skip-slave-start &
    
  4. Start the secondary replication slave:

    shellS'> mysqld --ndbcluster --server-id=4 \
                    --skip-slave-start &
    
  5. Finally, commence replication on the primary channel by executing the START SLAVE statement on the primary slave as shown here:

    mysqlS> START SLAVE;
    

As mentioned previously, it is not necessary to enable binary logging on replication slaves.
