Note that the current replication implementation
catches the queries on the way down through the
MySQL server and that this has consequences if you
update the same row in two or more MySQL servers in
the same MySQL Cluster (and use replication between
The NDB storage engine will make the two updates
(U1 on MySQL server M1, U2 on MySQL server M2)
in some order, but the MySQL servers will not
know the order.
It can happen that the master MySQL Cluster does
U1 first and then U2 and that the slave MySQL
server, or the slave MySQL Cluster first U2
and then U1.
A solution for this is worked upon, but right now
the fix is to not allow same row to be updated by
multiple MySQL servers belonging to the same cluster
if one wants replication to work.
