pt-table-checksum : Cannot connect to slave

KoHeadKoHead ContributorInactive User Role Beginner
Hi all,

I have a problem today with pt-table-checksum.

When i do pt-table-checksum on my master server, i see the following message :

Cannot connect to

So, pt-table-checksum can't to do his job !

I use the user root for the connection (with no password)

I must create a user for pt-table-checksum ?


  • KoHeadKoHead Contributor Inactive User Role Beginner

    I create a specific user on the master AND the slave

    Slave :
    GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON *.* TO 'percona_user'@'master_host_ip' IDENTIFIED BY 'PASSWD';"

    Master :
    GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON *.* TO 'percona_user'@'localhost' IDENTIFIED BY 'PASSWD';"

    But i have now a other error :

    pt-table-checksum --databases=test_stats_admin_2013 --user=percona_user --password=MyPass
    Cannot connect to h=slave1.***.com,p=...,u=percona_user
    Cannot connect to h=slave2.***.com,p=...,u=percona_user
    Cannot connect to h=slave3.***.com,p=...,u=percona_user
    Cannot connect to h=slave4.***.com,p=...,u=percona_user
    Cannot connect to h=slave5.***.com,p=...,u=percona_user
    01-15T17:11:27 Replication filters are set on these hosts:
    binlog_do_db = listing of databases name
    slave_skip_errors = ALL
    replicate_ignore_db = mysql
    replicate_do_db = listing databases name

    Please read the --check-replication-filters documentation to learn how to solve this problem. at /usr/bin/pt-table-checksum line 8951.

    Ok i understand for check-replication-filter. Endeed, i have any replication filter on my databases. But it's not a problem for me so i will to use --nocheck-replication-filters ( Of course, i filter the databases on which I applied the checksum).

    Come back to the "cannot connecter to h=slaveN" problem.
    I am sure now that i must create a user for percona. But what are the rights that would specifically need ?

    I do get the same problem message saying 'Cannot connect to h=themachine...' but when checking the checksums table on the machine it cannot connect I see that it must have connected and run... the 'ts' field in the table gets updated.

    Is there a way to debug this and see in verbose mode where is trying to connect whith which user?

    Running any of the tool from percona-toolkit along PTDEBUG=1 generate verbose logging.
