database

  • Description: Database name for reference table that exists on remote backend server.
  • Default Table Value: local table database
  • DSN Parameter Name: database

default_file

  • Description: Configuration file used when connecting to remote servers. When the default_group table variable is set, this variable defaults to the values of the --defaults-extra-file or --defaults-file options. When the default_group table variable is not set, it defaults to none.

host

  • Description: Host name of remote server.
  • Default Table Value: localhost
  • DSN Parameter Name: host

idx000

  • Description: When using an index on Spider tables for searching, Spider uses this hint to search the remote table. The remote table index is related to the Spider table index by this hint. The number represented by 000 is the index ID, which is the number of the index shown by the SHOW CREATE TABLE statement. 000 is the Primary Key. For instance, idx000 "force index(PRIMARY)" (in abbreviated format idx000 "f PRIMARY").
    • f force index

    • ig ignore index
  • Default Table Value: none

    • 0 Doesn't transmit.
    • 1 Transmits.
  • Default Table Value: 0
  • DSN Parameter Name: idl
  • Description: Change status of the remote backend server link.
    • 0 Doesn't change status.
    • 1 Changes status to OK.
    • 2 Changes status to RECOVERY.

    • 0 Disables background monitoring.
    • 1 Monitors connection state.
    • 2 Monitors state of table without WHERE clause.
    • 3 Monitors state of table with WHERE clause (currently unsupported).
  • Default Table Value: 0
  • DSN Parameter Name: mbk

monitoring_kind

  • DSN Parameter Name: mlt

monitoring_server_id

  • Description: Preferred monitoring @@server_id for each backend failure. You can use this to geo-localize backend servers and set the first Spider monitoring node to contact for failover.
