mysql.rds_stop_replication - Amazon Relational Database Service

mysql.rds_stop_replication

Stops replication from a MySQL DB instance.

Syntax

CALL mysql.rds_stop_replication;

Usage notes

The master user must run the mysql.rds_stop_replication procedure.

If you are configuring replication to import data from an instance of MySQL running external to Amazon RDS, you call mysql.rds_stop_replication on the read replica to stop the replication process after the import has completed. 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 use mysql.rds_stop_replication to stop replication between two Amazon RDS DB instances. You typically stop replication to perform a long running operation on the read replica, such as creating a large index on the read replica. You can restart any replication process that you stopped by calling mysql.rds_start_replication on the read replica. For more information, see Working with read replicas.
