Remote servers

The FEDERATED storage engine accesses data in tables of remote databases rather than in local tables. Use remote servers to lighten such table creating. The local server connects to a remote server, and uses the MySQL client API to read, delete, update, and insert data in the remote table.

 

To create a FEDERATED table using such a server, set the Connection property to 'remote_server_name/table_name' within the Create Table wizard.

 

 

New remote servers are added within Create Remote Server Wizard. In order to run the wizard you should either

 

select the Object | Create Database Object... main menu item;
select the Remote Servers icon in the Create Database Object dialog

or

select the Remote Servers list or any object from that list in the explorer tree;
select the Create New Remote Server... item from the popup menu

 

To create a new remote server with the same properties as one of the existing one has:

 

select the Object | Duplicate Database Object... main menu item;
follow the instructions of Duplicate Object Wizard.

 

 

 

Remote servers can be edited within Remote Server Editor. In order to run the editor you should either

 

select the remote server for editing in the explorer tree (type the first letters of the server name for quick search);
select the Edit Remote Server... item from the popup menu

 

 

 

To drop a remote server:

 

select the server to drop in the explorer tree;
select the Drop Remote Server item from the popup menu

 

and confirm dropping in the dialog window.
