Preliminary MySQL Cluster benchmark results on POWER8
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Yesterday, I got the basics going for MySQL Cluster on POWER. Today, I finished up a couple more patches to improve performance and ran some benchmarks.

This is on a 3.7Ghz POWER8 machine with non-balanced memory (only 2 of the 4 NUMA nodes have memory, so we have less total memory bandwidth than we could have, plus I’m going to bind ndbmtd to the CPUs in these NUMA nodes)

With a setup of a single replica and two data nodes on the one machine (each bound to a specific NUMA node), running the flexAsync benchmark …

MySQL Cluster on POWER8
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

So, I’ve written previously on MySQL on POWER, and today is a quick bit of news about MySQL Cluster on POWER – specifically MySQL Cluster 7.3.7.

I ran into three main issues in getting some flexAsync benchmark results. One of them was the fact that I wanted to do this in the middle of all the POWER8 machines I usually use moving buildings (hard to run benchmarks when computers are packed up in boxes on a truck).

The next issue was that ndbmtd (the multi-threaded data node) needs memory barriers for the magic message passing stuff between threads. So, that’s pretty easy (about an eight line patch).

The next issue was in the …

Putting MySQL Cluster in a container
+1 Vote Up -0Vote Down

To get more familiar with docker and to create a test setup for MySQL Cluster I created docker images for the various components of MySQL Cluster (a.k.a. NDB Cluster)

At first I created a Fedora 20 container and ran all components in one container. That worked and is quite easy to setup. But that's not how one is supposed to use docker.

So I created Dockerfile's for all components and one base image.

The base image:

  • contains …

New Webinar on July 9th: How To Set Up SQL Load Balancing with HAProxy
+1 Vote Up -0Vote Down

June 17, 2014 By Severalnines

 

We continuously see great interest in MySQL load balancing and HAProxy, so we thought it was about time we organised a live webinar on the topic!

 

As most of your will know, database clusters and load balancing go hand in hand. 

 

Once your data is distributed and replicated across multiple database nodes, a load balancing mechanism helps distribute database requests, and gives applications a single database endpoint …

MySQL Cluster on Raspberry Pi - Sub-second failover
Employee +1 Vote Up -0Vote Down

MySQL Cluster claims to achieve sub-second failover without any data loss for commited transactions. And I always wanted to show this in a demo. Now we created that demo finally. See Mark's blog and Keith's blog for setting up MySQL Cluster on RaspberryPi.
The nice thing about the RPis is that you can easily pull the plug to test failover. Ok, that is only one possible failure scenario but for sure the most obvious and more impressive than "kill -9".


That demo …

Ghosts of MySQL Past, Part 8: The First Fork.
+1 Vote Up -0Vote Down

This is the 8th installment in the rather long series that started with Part 1 about a month ago.

Back in 2006, we were in the situation where MySQL 5.0 had taken forever, and the first “GA” release was not suitable for production. Looking towards MySQL 5.1, it was also unlikely to be out any time soon. The MySQL Cluster team had customers that needed new features in a stable release. The …

Percona XtraDB Cluster – A Drop-in-place Clustering Solution for MySQL
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Emphasis on clustering solutions comes up quite a lot when talking to customers about High Availability. The reason is because clustering is supposed to provide an easier solution for maintaining high availability and so that you do not have to rely on other tools and techniques outside of the database server. I thought it would be good to share the gist of many of my discussions around clustering, in the form of a blog post. So here I will be doing a high-level comparison between MySQL NDB Cluster and Percona XtraDB …

High-availability options for MySQL, October 2013 update
+1 Vote Up -0Vote Down

The technologies allowing to build highly-available (HA) MySQL solutions are in constant evolution and they cover very different needs and use cases. In order to help people choose the best HA solution for their needs, we decided, Jay Janssen and I, to publish, on a regular basis (hopefully, this is the first), an update on the most common technologies and their state, with a focus on what type of workloads suite them best. We restricted ourselves to the open source solutions that provide automatic failover. Of course, don’t simply look at the …
