Exec_Master_Log_Pos always behind Read_Master_Log_Pos

I’m checking the health of the replication comparing Exec_Master_Log_Pos and Read_Master_Log_Pos. All is fine in general, except on the one node we have 8.0 instead of 5.7. Exec on that node absolutely never catches up, regardless of load. Hence the health is always shown as degraded.
Seconds_Behind_Master is usually 0, but from time to time I can catch it at 1.

Is this something specific to 8.0, can I do anything about that, should I change the health check system, is it healthy in the end?

Hello @Add,
Be sure to compare all global variables between 5.7 and 8.0 servers. Make sure you are using ROW-based replication. Other than that, check out the PMM dashboard for the Performance Schema on your 8.0 and see where you might be having wait issues.

These are the differences (usually the defaults between those 2 versions):

Replication is ROW based, I haven’t PMM installed.
