Question Comparing two MySQL Databases

I have two MySQL servers set up in a Master/Slave type relationship. I have not configured them as master/slaves but am using binary logging to keep the slave up-to-date. I run a cron job that handles the transferring of binary logs every night.

I am not certain if my cron job has been 100% successful in updating the slave. Is there a way to compare the databases on both servers to see if they are identical?

Thanks in advance!

I'm not certain it's exactly what you're looking for, but the diff command will compare two files and show you where they differ, if at all.
