We have an option to do recovery through bin-logs, but we thought recovery through bin-logs is not 99% consistent because there is no LSN(Log Sequence Number)/SCN (System Change Number) in bin-logs (Statement/mixed/row).

Is there any possibility to archive innodb-redo-logs ?

Is there any chance to do recovery by using archived Innodb Redo-logs (at the time of instance start-up) ?

Looking for valuable suggestions.

Note: I'm searching for oracle style recovery in MySQL.

Thank you all :)

  • MySQL is different than Oracle. Look for tools tuned for MySQL; the best ones may not follow the pattern you are used to.

Not sure if this the answer you are looking for but Percona Server has a Log Archiving for XtraDB feature and you can restore a backup to a specific point in time by specifying an LSN.

Just be aware of this note from the documentation:

This feature implementation is considered BETA quality.
