Using pt-archiver with –no-delete option

Hi there,

I was wondering if it is possible to use pt-archiver with –no-delete option but reaching out a mysql replica Slave as a Source DB instead of Master DB , just with the aim of not bothering the master DB.

I’m aware that there plenty of options for customizing even the UNLOAD, but I got curious about it and I’d like to get your opinion.



Hello @alessio, I see no reason why you couldn’t run pt-archiver against a replica and set --no-delete. Have you tried this?

Hi Matthew, thanks for getting back to me on this, nope but I’m gonna to give it a try soon. I’ll reach you out afterwards.
