mysql.rds_start_replication

Initiates replication from a MySQL DB instance.

Note

You can use the mysql.rds_start_replication_until or mysql.rds_start_replication_until_gtid stored procedure to initiate replication from an RDS for MySQL DB instance and stop replication at the specified binary log file location.

Syntax

CALL mysql.rds_start_replication;

Usage notes

The master user must run the mysql.rds_start_replication procedure.

If you are configuring replication to import data from an instance of MySQL running external to Amazon RDS, you call mysql.rds_start_replication on the read replica to start the replication process after you have called mysql.rds_set_external_master to build the replication configuration. For more information, see Restoring a backup into a MySQL DB instance.

If you are configuring replication to export data to an instance of MySQL external to Amazon RDS, you call mysql.rds_start_replication and mysql.rds_stop_replication on the read replica to control some replication actions, such as purging binary logs. For more information, see Exporting data from a MySQL DB instance by using replication.

You can also call mysql.rds_start_replication on the read replica to restart any replication process that you previously stopped by calling mysql.rds_stop_replication. For more information, see Working with read replicas.
