Swanhart-Tools includes FlexCDC, a change data capture tool for MySQL. FlexCDC follows a server’s binary log and usually writes “changelogs” that track the changes to tables in the database.

In a nutshell if you’re not using prepared statements the big difference between those is what “Questions” would count stored procedure calls as […]
We’ve recently received a number of questions on how to implement incremental MySQL backups alongside encryption with Percona XtraBackup. Some users thought it was not initially possible because with the default --encrypt options with XtraBackup, all files will be encrypted, but alas, that is not the case.
