MySQL DB Systems HA - connect to secondary instances for backup
SummaryWould like to know if it is possible to run backups using the secundary instances of an HA MySQL DB System in OCI
I've setup a HA MySQL Database Service in OCI as in this blog (https://blogs.oracle.com/mysql/mysql-database-service-with-high-availability).
I would like to know if it is possible to connect to the secondary instances in order to take manual backups.
The target is to use the read replicas for backup purpose and avoid generating traffic and extra processing in the primary instance.
Appreciate your comments.
