I'm trying to find a solution for keeping 2 mysql servers in sync. they are both running on redhat. I want to set a 2 node cluster with hearbeat. I need both mysql dbs to be sync'd so that if the primary server goes down the backup and kickin (via hearbeat) and still have the up-to-date data. How can I keep my secondary mysql db identical to my primary. I know that Oracle has "snapshots". I'm not really sure how snapshots work, but I'm guessing I'm looking for something similar.
