Since 5.7.2, MySQL implements parallel replication in the same schema, also known as LOGICAL_CLOCK (DATABASE based parallel replication is also implemented in 5.6 but this is not covered in this talk). In early 5.7 versions, parallel replication was based on group commit (like MariaDB) and 5.7.6 changed that to intervals.
Intervals are more complicated but they are also more powerful. In this talk, I will explain in detail how they work and why intervals are better than group commit. I will also cover how to optimize parallel replication in MySQL 5.7 and what improvements are coming in MySQL 8.0. I will also explain why Group Replication is replicating faster than standard asynchronous replication.
Come to this talk to get all the details about MySQL 5.7 Parallel Replication.
