STOP SLAVE ["connection_name"] [thread_type [, thread_type] ... ]

STOP ALL SLAVES [thread_type [, thread_type]]

thread_type: IO_THREAD | SQL_THREAD


Stops the slave threads. STOP SLAVE requires the SUPER privilege.

Like START SLAVE, this statement may be used with the IO_THREAD and SQL_THREAD options to name the thread or threads to be stopped. In almost all cases, one never need to use the thread_type options.

STOP SLAVE waits until any current replication event group affecting one or more non-transactional tables has finished executing (if there is any such replication group), or until the user issues a KILL QUERY or KILL CONNECTION statement.

Note that STOP SLAVE doesn't delete the connection permanently. Next time you execute START SLAVE or the MariaDB server restarts, the slave connection is restored with it's original arguments. If you want to delete a connection, you should execute RESET SLAVE.


MariaDB starting with 10.0

STOP ALL SLAVES stops all your running slaves. It will give you a note for every stopped connection. You can check the notes with SHOW WARNINGS.


MariaDB starting with 10.0

The connection_name option was added as part of multi-source replication added in MariaDB 10.0

If there is only one nameless master, or the default master (as specified by the default_master_connection system variable) is intended, connection_name can be omitted. If provided, the STOP SLAVE statement will apply to the specified master. connection_name is case-insensitive.
