What's new in MySQL 5.5 and 5.6 Replication

Average: 9 (6 votes)

Advanced users of MySQL replication have reason to be excited about MySQL 5.6 improvements. There are, in fact, many features that users have been waiting for since the inception of MySQL.
There are features that have been available for some time in MySQL 5.5, like semi-synchronous replication and heartbeat, which aren't as known as they should. We will cover these for starters.
Then we will talk about 5.6 improvements, starting with delayed replication, and continuing with multi-thread slave, crash safe slaves, event checksums, time-share multi-source replication, the global transaction IDs, and the binary log API.
We will also give examples of the MySQL utilities (released with MySQL Workbench) dedicated to replication.
