I have a MySQL server with slave replication on another host. Today I stumbled across the high disk usage of the slave host and invastigated what takes up all the space. As it turns out this space is occupied by the slaves relay logs.
I tried to turn the
expire_logs_days variable down and restarted the MySQL daemon but the reported disk space stays the same. I could't really find anything exept that
FLUSH LOGS should clear old logs. I tried that with no result.
Is there any way I can reduce the disk space that the relay logs take?
