Extended mysqlbinlog


In Percona Server 8.0.18, the --compress option was marked as deprecated and may be removed in a future version of Percona Server for MySQL.

Percona Server for MySQL has implemented compression support for mysqlbinlog. This is similar to support that both mysql and mysqldump programs include (the -C, --compress options “Use compression in server/client protocol”). Using the compressed protocol helps reduce the bandwidth use and speed up transfers.

Percona Server for MySQL has also implemented support for SSL. mysqlbinlog now accepts the SSL connection options as all the other client programs. This feature can be useful with --read-from-remote-server option.

Version specific information

  • 8.0.12-1: The feature was ported from Percona Server for MySQL 5.7
