create table...checksum = 1

P: n/a
Content-Type: text/plain

Hey Folks

I'm having a tough time finding any information in the available
documentation about this feature. Does anyone out there have a bit of
insight as to what exactly it does.

Docs says MySQL will store a checksum for each row if this is 'on' - that's
about all I can find.

Some general questions are:

Where is it stored?

Is it assessable?

How is the checksum verified between two databases - e.g., in a
master/slave environment?

Which technology is used (MD5 etc.)?

An even more general is, what would be a scenario in which I would use this
feature? I'm thinking it would be nice to verify data traveling across a
client server environment....but I may be wrong.....

Any insight?
