Mysql : innodb_autoinc_lock_mode = 1 and statement based replication.

Hi all,

I have to run this query for up to 4million rows in a online production database:  "insert into t1 select from t2",
t1 has ID autoincrement column and  already has some data.

we have statement based replication.

knowing that t1 will be accessed by other users during the query run.
will this lock the table during the query run or create data discrepancies between the master and the slave??

The innodb_autoinc_lock mode you specified is the default one. 1 is consecutive mode. I'd quote documentation here:

This lock mode ensures that, in the presence of INSERT statements where the number of rows is not known in advance (and where auto-increment numbers are assigned as the statement progresses), all auto-increment values assigned by any “INSERT-like” statement are consecutive, and operations are safe for statement-based replication.
Ref: Documentation.
So, as long as it reads "Safe statement" you're good for you slaves.

Additionally, if your slave is for read-only purpose, use "read_only=ON;" ( & in 5.7 super_read_only too.)
