NO Security vulnerability in Percona Server / XtraDB Cluster provided binaries
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Many of you heard of this nasty security vulnerability in MySQL, and as we are getting a lot of inquiries how does it affect Percona Server, I decided to address it in this post.

  • The issue exists in the source code of MySQL 5.5.23 or earlier and MySQL 5.1.62 or earlier. The same is true for Percona Server, as we share the same code base.
  • However binaries provided by Percona do not have this problem, as in our build process we do not use sse-optimized glibc memcmp. This is true for any version of Percona and all tar.gz, RPM and DEB packages. Once again, if you use binary builds, provided by Percona from our official download area, or from our repositories,

Migrating to XtraDB Cluster Webinar follow up questions
+1 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Thanks to all who attended my webinar today. The session was recorded and will be available to watch for free soon here.

There were a lot of great questions asked during the session, so I’d like to take this opportunity to try to answer a few of them:

Q: Is there an easy way to leverage the xtrabackup SST and IST in an xtradb cluster to take your full and incremental backups of the cluster’s databases?

Well, if you noticed, all the current SST methods are just commonly used backup tools, and the SST is, in reality, just doing a full backup. So I’m not sure there’s much to leverage with SST.

The straight-forward to way to backup XtraDB Cluster (IMHO) would

Webinar – Migrating to Percona XtraDB Cluster
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Whenever I learn about a new technology, I typically want to know the major administrative touch points more than I want to know exhaustive detail about every configuration option.  Give me the gist, show me enough to get started, and give me a link to the manual.

XtraDB cluster (and Galera, the technology on which it is based) has been attracting a lot of interest in the community and we want to start presenting information about both what we know is essential, but also what we suspect will become essential as more and more production experience is logged with these important new technologies.

As such, I put together a baseline talk for getting you into a working knowledge of XtraDB

Benchmarks challenges of XtraDB Cluster
+1 Vote Up -0Vote Down

We are running internally a lot of benchmarks on our recently announced Percona XtraDB Cluster, and I am going to publish these results soon.
But before that I wanted to mention that proper benchmark of distributed system comes with a lot of challenges.
I am saying that not to complain, but to make sure, if you are going to benchmark XtraDB Cluster yourself, there is a lot of things to take into account.

And it seems that one component, which was not much important before, now appears as critical peace, which easily can became bottleneck in the benchmarks – this is network.

In case of simple client-server setup, the network is not fully utilized.
