You are geographically replicating your MySQL Cluster to another Cluster and your replica MySQL server received the LOST_EVENTS event. This happens because on the source side, the MySQL doing binary logging stopped and it will probably miss updates while not running. The replica MySQL server stops so some action may be taken e.g. checking consistency of data and/or switching replication channel. However, there are situations where you just want the replica MySQL server to continue replication, ignoring the LOST_EVENTS event.
