RESET MASTER can prove useful
when you first set up the master and the slave, so that you can
verify the setup as follows:
Start the master and slave, and start replication (see Section 14.4, “How to Set Up Replication”).
Execute a few test queries on the master.
Check that the queries were replicated to the slave.
RESET MASTER on the
master to clean up the test queries.
After verifying the setup and getting rid of any unwanted and log files generated by testing, you can start the slave and begin replicating.
