LT: Xtrabackup and FTWRL
Lightning Talk: This talk will ponder over implications of using Xtrabackup with FTWRL (Flush Tables With Read Lock). More importantly, it will discuss using --no-lock with it which obviates FTWRL. Not using the locking has its own caveats - no DDL and InnoDB only. The mechanism of backup without locking will also be discussed (in obtaining binlog co-ordinates through crash recovery). Possible solutions to the aforementioned caveats will also be considered.
