MySQL : Show How Many INSERT, UPDATE, DELETE In Binary Log File

Each data modification such as INSERT, UPDATE, DELETE and data definition like ALTER, ADD, DROP statement that you perform in your server are record in log files. So each time when you make any these statements, you actually update both your data files and your log file.

If you have a MySQL database setup with master and slave. You know the master writes transaction even to binary log, which is read and executed by the slave, thus making the slave a continuous copy of the master.

So we can say the binary log contains a record of all changes to the databases, both data and structure. It consists of a set of binary log files and index.

In this article I will show you how you can find how many UPDATE, INSERT, and DELETE in binary log file.
