Even If You Fail, You Can Still Learn
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

As many learning experiences do, this one also starts out “So I was working on a project at work and…”.  In this case, the end result is to try to run as many concurrent copies of MySQL on a single server as possible, maintaining real time replication each running differing data sets. To help with this, I sent out to do this on a server with 36 7200rpm 4GB SATA disks, giving me roughly 120TB of available space to work with.

This isn’t an abnormal type of machine for us. Sometimes you simply need a ton of disk space. There is a quirk with this particular machine that I’ve been told: the RAID controller has some …

MySQL Group Replication – Transaction life cycle explained
Employee_Team +1 Vote Up -0Vote Down

The multi master plugin for MySQL is here. MySQL Group Replication provides virtually synchronous updates on any node in a group of MySQL servers, with conflict handling and automatic group membership management and failure detection.

For a better understanding on how things work, we go under the hood in this post and will analyse the transaction life cycle on multi master and which components does it interact with. But before that we need to understand first what a group is.

Group Communication Toolkit

The multi master plugin is powered by a group communication toolkit. This is what decides which servers belong …

MySQL Group Replication – Testing
Employee_Team +1 Vote Up -0Vote Down

The multi master plugin for MySQL is here “MySQL Group Replication“. It is a virtual synchronous solution for MySQL with conflict detection. It also supports automatic group membership management, failure detection and automatic distributed recovery.

With the introduction of this new feature there was a need to perform some good amount of testing as it involves complex functionalities like :

  • Servers execute local transactions and broadcasts the update to the group.
  • All servers in the group, even the sender, receive same transaction in the same order and check for conflicts.
  • All servers, …

This post gives a brief  overview of the Performance Schema tables that have been introduced for MySQL Group Replication.

WAIT_FOR_EXECUTED_GTID_SET for MySQL Replication
Employee_Team +1 Vote Up -0Vote Down

With the introduction of Global Transaction Identifiers(GTID) in MySQL from mysql-5.6 GA a whole lot of different functionality have been developed around it so that GTID could be used in a much simpler and efficient way.

One of the interesting functionality with GTID in use is the function to sync a slave with its
master server using the WAIT_UNTIL_SQL_THREAD_AFTER_GTIDS. This is used to do a timed or an indefinite wait till the servers in contention are in sync with respect to the GTID executed set.

This function is used to address specific use cases in which transactions are applied using SQL/worker thread. In order to …

Preserve Master’s Commit Order on Slave
Employee_Team +0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

On MySQL-5.7.2, we released a new type of multi-threaded slave (MTS). It is called logical clock based MTS. Because it can parallel apply transactions in the same schema, it has the potential to improve slave throughput on almost any application, regardless of the schema layout. After it was released, we continued to work on the framework to improve it further. Therefore, 5.7.5 includes a few enhancements, in addition to those released as part of previous DMRs. This blog post introduces one of the new features in the latest DMR.

slave_preserve_commit_order

It is a system global variable and can be set dynamically.

Transaction Retry Is Available On Multi-Threaded Slave
Employee_Team +0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

 I am happy to announce that slave_transaction_retries is available on multi-threaded slave now. You will no longer see the warning that slave_transaction_retries is not supported by multi-threaded slave since MySQL-5.7.5.

Multi-threaded slave and single-threaded slave share the system variable slave_transaction_retries and they have similar transaction retry logic. So this blog just brings you a little new knowledge and then refresh you with the transaction retry logic.

Transaction Retry In Worker Threads

For multi-threaded slave, Transaction retry is done in worker threads when they are applying their …

MySQL Group Replication: A small Corosync guide
Employee_Team +0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

MySQL Group Replication is here and with it comes the need to install and configure the underlying group communication toolkit that supports it: Corosync. Corosync is a well known and reliable Group Communication System that is used in such applications as Pacemaker.

In term of support, we develop MySQL Group Replication based on Corosync version 1.4.6, so this tutorial is based on this version. Regardless of this, no known problems are know to exists when using newer versions, but no extensive testing has been done on those.

Along with Corosync we also encourage the use of NSS to better secure your data that is transmitted in the …
