Detailed Description

For binlog version 4. This event is saved by threads which read it, as they need it for future use (to decode the ordinary events).

Binary Format

Constructor & Destructor Documentation

Format_description_log_event::Format_description_log_event ( uint8  binlog_ver,
const char *  server_ver = 0 

Format_description_log_event 1st ctor.

Ctor. Can be used to create the event to write to the binary log (when the server starts or when FLUSH LOGS), or to create artificial events to parse binlogs from MySQL 3.23 or 4.x. When in a client, only the 2nd use is possible.

binlog_versionthe binlog version for which we want to build an event. Can be 1 (=MySQL 3.23), 3 (=4.0.x x>=2 and 4.1) or 4 (MySQL 5.0). Note that the old 4.0 (binlog version 2) is not supported; it should not be used for replication with 5.0.
server_vera string containing the server version.
Format_description_log_event::Format_description_log_event ( const char *  buf,
uint  event_len,
const Format_description_log_event description_event 

The problem with this constructor is that the fixed header may have a length different from this version, but we don't know this length as we have not read the Format_description_log_event which says it, yet. This length is in the post-header of the event, but we don't know where the post-header starts.

So this type of event HAS to:

  • either have the header's length at the beginning (in the header, at a fixed position which will never be changed), not in the post-header. That would make the header be "shifted" compared to other events.
  • or have a header of size LOG_EVENT_MINIMAL_HEADER_LEN (19), in all future versions, so that we know for sure.

I (Guilhem) chose the 2nd solution. Rotate has the same constraint (because it is sent before Format_description_log_event).

Member Function Documentation

'server_version_split' is used for lookups to find if the server which created this event has some known bug.

integer representing the version of server that originated the current FD instance.
TRUE is the event's version is earlier than one that introduced the replication event checksum. FALSE otherwise.
