Learn MySQL: An overview of the mysqlbinlog utility. This article will describe mysqlbinlog utility, its usage and the process to extract the content of the binary logs using it.

The mysqlbinlog utility is used to process the binary logs of the MySQL server. Using mysqlbinlog utility, we can perform the following tasks:

  1. View the content of the binary logs in the text format
  2. If you have set up replication, then you can view the content of the relay log file
  3. Generate the backup of the binary logs
  4. Disable the binary logs during the database restore process

In my previous article, I have explained about the binary logs. In the binary logs, MySQL Server writes changes made on the database server in the form of events. The changes are written in binary format. These contents can be viewed using the mysqlbinlog utility. The format of the binary logs and relay logs is the same; therefore, if you have set up replication, you can view the relay log file’s content using mysqlbinlog. The syntax to invoke the mysqlbinlog utility is the following:

C:\> mysqlbinlog [option] [name of the binary log]..

mysql mysqlbinlog
