Is it possible to modify the binlog_name and binlog_pos in the syncer table of the dm_meta dictionary database to handle binlog loss during TiDB full and incremental synchronization if data loss is not a concern?

When TiDB full + incremental synchronization loses binlog, if you don’t care about data loss, can you modify the binlog_name and binlog_pos in the syncer table of the dm_meta dictionary database?

Sure, but you need to ensure the table structure is consistent. Otherwise, there will be exceptions.

How to operate without errors and continue synchronization when the structure is the same? Thank you.

Create a new task and start synchronization from a specified point using incremental synchronization.

You can change the full task to an incremental task and specify the binlog position, but be mindful of whether the table structures are consistent.

It is not recommended to modify dm_meta. The binlog_pos or gtid can be manually set when starting an incremental task:

    source-id: "mysql-replica-01"           # Corresponds to `source-id` in source.toml
    meta:                                   # The starting position of binlog migration when `task-mode` is `incremental` and the `checkpoint` of the downstream database does not exist; if the checkpoint exists, it takes precedence. If neither the `meta` item nor the downstream database's `checkpoint` exists, migration starts from the latest binlog position upstream.
      binlog-name: binlog.000001
      binlog-pos: 4
      binlog-gtid: "03fc0263-28c7-11e7-a653-6c0b84d59f30:1-7041423,05474d3c-28c7-11e7-8352-203db246dd3d:1-170"  # For incremental tasks with `enable-gtid: true` specified in the source, this value needs to be specified.

You can stop the previous task and then reset a starting position.
