mysql.rds_next_master_log - Amazon Relational Database Service
Services or capabilities described in Amazon Web Services documentation might vary by Region. To see the differences applicable to the China Regions, see Getting Started with Amazon Web Services in China.


Changes the source database instance log position to the start of the next binary log on the source database instance. Use this procedure only if you are receiving replication I/O error 1236 on a read replica.


CALL mysql.rds_next_master_log( curr_master_log );



The index of the current master log file. For example, if the current file is named mysql-bin-changelog.012345, then the index is 12345. To determine the current master log file name, run the SHOW REPLICA STATUS command and view the Master_Log_File field.


Previous versions of MySQL used SHOW SLAVE STATUS instead of SHOW REPLICA STATUS. If you are using a MySQL version before 8.0.23, then use SHOW SLAVE STATUS.

Usage notes

The master user must run the mysql.rds_next_master_log procedure.


Call mysql.rds_next_master_log only if replication fails after a failover of a Multi-AZ DB instance that is the replication source, and the Last_IO_Errno field of SHOW REPLICA STATUS reports I/O error 1236.

Calling mysql.rds_next_master_log may result in data loss in the read replica if transactions in the source instance were not written to the binary log on disk before the failover event occurred. You can reduce the chance of this happening by configuring the source instance parameters sync_binlog = 1 and innodb_support_xa = 1, although this may reduce performance. For more information, see Working with read replicas.


Assume replication fails on an Amazon RDS read replica. Running SHOW REPLICA STATUS\G on the read replica returns the following result:

*************************** 1. row *************************** Replica_IO_State: Source_Host: Source_User: MasterUser Source_Port: 3306 Connect_Retry: 10 Source_Log_File: mysql-bin-changelog.012345 Read_Source_Log_Pos: 1219393 Relay_Log_File: relaylog.012340 Relay_Log_Pos: 30223388 Relay_Source_Log_File: mysql-bin-changelog.012345 Replica_IO_Running: No Replica_SQL_Running: Yes Replicate_Do_DB: Replicate_Ignore_DB: Replicate_Do_Table: Replicate_Ignore_Table: Replicate_Wild_Do_Table: Replicate_Wild_Ignore_Table: Last_Errno: 0 Last_Error: Skip_Counter: 0 Exec_Source_Log_Pos: 30223232 Relay_Log_Space: 5248928866 Until_Condition: None Until_Log_File: Until_Log_Pos: 0 Source_SSL_Allowed: No Source_SSL_CA_File: Source_SSL_CA_Path: Source_SSL_Cert: Source_SSL_Cipher: Source_SSL_Key: Seconds_Behind_Master: NULL Source_SSL_Verify_Server_Cert: No Last_IO_Errno: 1236 Last_IO_Error: Got fatal error 1236 from master when reading data from binary log: 'Client requested master to start replication from impossible position; the first event 'mysql-bin-changelog.013406' at 1219393, the last event read from '/rdsdbdata/log/binlog/mysql-bin-changelog.012345' at 4, the last byte read from '/rdsdbdata/log/binlog/mysql-bin-changelog.012345' at 4.' Last_SQL_Errno: 0 Last_SQL_Error: Replicate_Ignore_Server_Ids: Source_Server_Id: 67285976

The Last_IO_Errno field shows that the instance is receiving I/O error 1236. The Master_Log_File field shows that the file name is mysql-bin-changelog.012345, which means that the log file index is 12345. To resolve the error, you can call mysql.rds_next_master_log with the following parameter:

CALL mysql.rds_next_master_log(12345);
