I built a 3-node cluster a while ago using examples from the Percona website.
These all state to use : binlog_format=ROW.
However, none of them set “log_bin” so that means binary logging isn’t even turned on … or am I completely confused and is there no connection between these two variables ?
As far as I can tell the cluster is working perfectly without the log_bin setting.
Maybe I only need it if I want to do point-in-time recovery ?
Any and all answers appreciated, even RTFM ones (if you can point met to the manual to read)
