Backup Slave nightly.
Run pt-table-checksum on Master nightly.
We periodically restore from a nightly Slave backup and replay Master binary log files from the time of the backup to a specific date/time.
Replaying the binary log files includes the statements that take a checksum of all dbs/tables. Depending on the recovery could be multiple days.
Is there a recommended way of excluding the checksum statements from going to the Masters binary log?
Or excluding them from the mysqlbinlog export or mysql replay?
