Hi @marcoSnorkler,

As the master-slave replication is a one-way replication (from master to slave), only the master database is used for the write operations, while read operations may be spread on multiple slave databases.

With the above said, I don’t think it’s possible to replicate only selected tables, only databases. Having said that, I don’t think it would be a good idea to replicate only selected tables as well but I don’t know the whole situation.

If you do find a way to do so, please do let me know I’ll be interested to check it out!
