we have a MySQL system in Master-slave replication mode. Currently we are doing full backups with mysqldumps to a remote disk server.
I think is best to do one full dump and many small incremental backups. According to the MySQL manual, MySQL uses the binlogs to make theses incremental backups, flushing binlogs each time an incremental backup is completed. But we already use binlogs to achieve Master-Slave replication.
My question is: how does this incremental backup and binlogs flushing affect the master-slave replication?
P.S:forgot to say, most of the tables use InnoDB, the others use MyISAM
