How can a database be in-memory and durable at the same time?
+12 Vote Up -0Vote Down

There is often confusion as to how it can be claimed that MySQL Cluster delivers in-memory performance while also providing durability (the “D” in ACID). This post explains how that can be achieved as well as how to mix and match scalability, High Availability and Durability.

MySQL Cluster deployment options

As an aside, the user can specify specific MySQL Cluster tables or columns to be stored on disk rather than in memory – this is a solution for extra capacity but you don’t need to take this …

Free webinar – Scaling web apps with MySQL (an alternative to the MEMORY storage engine)
+6 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Mat Keep and I will be presenting this free webinar on Wednesday 14 July.

The MEMORY storage engine has been widely adopted by MySQL users to provide near-instant responsiveness with use cases such as caching and web session management. As these services evolve to support more users, so the scalability and availability demands can start to exceed the capabilities of the MEMORY storage engine.

The MySQL Cluster database, which itself can be implemented as a MySQL storage engine, is a …

Using Syslog with MySQL Cluster
+3 Vote Up -0Vote Down

By default, MySQL Cluster sends log data to a file but you can also send it to the console or to Syslog; this article explains how to send it to Syslog. The example given here is for LINUX.

In this example, I’ll use the “user” syslog facility name and so the first step is to make sure that syslog is configured to route those messages. If this hasn’t already been configured then add the following lines to /etc/rsyslog.conf:

# Log user messages to local files
user.*    /var/log/user

For the changes to take effect, restart the syslog service:

[root@ws1 etc]# service rsyslog restart
Shutting down system logger: …

Configure MySQL Enterprise Monitor to monitor MySQL Cluster
+6 Vote Up -0Vote Down

MySQL Cluster 7.1 introduced the ndbinfo database which contains views giving real-time access to a whole host of information that helps you monitor and tune your MySQL Cluster deployment. Because this data can be accessed through regular SQL, various systems can be configured to monitor the Cluster. This post gives one example, extending MySQL Enterprise Monitor to keep an eye on the amount of free memory on the data nodes (through a graph) and then raise an alarm when it starts to run low – even generating SNMP traps if that’s …
