I am busy build a slave of an existing database. I don't want it to build bin logs for the data I import before bringing the slave into the same state as master.
This is mostly to save space on importing 100 G of data.
mysqldump somelargedb | gzip > /somewhere/withspace/dump/somelargedb.sql.gz
Uncompressed this file is in the 100 Gb range. Compressed it is around 2Gb
