Introduction As previously explained, CDC (Change Data Capture) is one of the best ways to interconnect an OLTP database system with other systems like Data Warehouse, Caches, Spark or Hadoop. Debezium is an open-source project developed by Red Hat which aims to simplify this process by allowing you to extract changes from various database systems (e.g. MySQL, PostgreSQL, MongoDB) and push them to Apache Kafka. In this article, we are going to see how you can extract events from MySQL binary logs using Debezium.
Introduction In this article, I’m going to explain what CDC (Change Data Capture) is, and why you should use it to extract database row-level changes. In OLTP (Online Transaction Processing) systems, data is accessed and changed concurrently by multiple transactions, and the database changes from one consistent state to another. An OLTP system always shows the latest state of our data, therefore facilitating the development of front-end applications that require near real-time data consistency guarantees. However, an OLTP system is no island, being just a small part of a larger system that… Read More
