Drift Detection
Schema drift is one of most common causes of database related outages. Bytebase provides an automatic way to detect the potential drift.
Bytebase is supposed to take over applying the database schema changes on behalf of the user. It records the detailed migration history and the before/after schema snapshot for each migration it applies.
A background process periodically compares the recorded latest schema with the actual schema in the targeting database and surface the drift if found. Drift usually happens when user applies out-of-band schema changes (such as hot fix) directly to the database without using Bytebase.
