We are using monitoring software that is throwing an error saying that
Slave_IO_Running is returning
No for replication on our master server. It is in fact true that when running
show slave status on the master server, that
I understand that the
show slave status command needs to be run on the slave server, and not the master and that any server can be a master and/or slave. To my knowledge, this server is truly only a master and doesn't serve as a slave to any other server.
I'm wondering why the monitoring software is showing this as a critical error, and if it is any cause for concern. Replication is running smoothly as far as I can tell, but looking to clear up this error from the monitoring software. Am I right in that, if this is the master server,
Slave_IO_Running: No as well as any other output from
show_slave_status on the master isn't meaningful?
