Subject Re: [jira] Assigned: (DERBY-3562) Number of log files (and log dir size) on the slave increases continuously
Date Thu, 27 Mar 2008 16:45:49 GMT
I didn't quite follow all of this, and admit i am not up on replication.
It would be nice if this process was the exact code as the normal
checkpoint processing.  So a checkpoint would be triggered and then
after it had done it's work it would do the appropriate cleanup.  If you
do the cleanup too soon then redo recovery of the slave won't work - is
that expected to work or at that point to you just restart from scratch
from master.

The existing code that replay's multiple checkpoints may be wierd as it
may assume that this is recovery of a backed up database that is meant
to keep all of it's log files.  Make sure to not break that.

Is there a concept of a "fully" recoverable slave, ie. one that is
supposed to keep all of it's log files so that it is recoverable in
case of a data crash.  As I said may not be necessary as there is
always the master.  Just good to know what is expected.
