New replication features in MySQL 5.6
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

This post was thought of as an attempt to make some performance test with new multi-threaded replication in 5.6, at least that was my initial intention. Based on Luis Soarez – Replication Team Leader in Oracle – post. I wanted to play with new set of variables and features in order to understand how new multi-threaded replication works and make some performance tests.

First impressions:
=================
I will start with my negative impressions about how to setup new replication features:

– Lack of documentation: I know …

Curious case with MySQL replication
+2 Vote Up -0Vote Down

MySQL Replication is a powerful tool and it’s hard to find a production system not using it. On the other hand debugging replication issues can be very hard and time consuming. Especially if your replication setup is not straightforward and you are using filtering of some kind.

Recently we got an alert from our monitoring system that replication stopped on production slave with the following error:

Can't find record in 'some_table', Error_code: 1032;
handler error HA_ERR_KEY_NOT_FOUND;
the event's master log binlog.000011, end_log_pos 735766642

This means that a ROW-based replication event was going to be applied on slave, but could …

+1 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Here is the the select on the master server and it’s execution time from the binary logs.

Viewing RMAN jobs status and output
+0 Vote Up -1Vote Down

Yesterday I was discussing with a fellow DBA about ways to check the status of existing and/or past RMAN jobs. Good backup scripts usually write their output to some sort of log file so, checking the output is usually a straight-forward task. However, backup jobs can be scheduled in many different ways (crontab, Grid Control, Scheduled Tasks, etc) and finding the log file may be tricky if you don’t know the environment well.
Furthermore, log files may also have already been overwritten by the next backup or simply just deleted. An alternative way of accessing that information, thus, may come handy.

Fortunately, RMAN keeps the backup metadata around …

+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

On many of our clients, we have a need to run XtraBackup as a regular OS user. Aside from running into the issue where tar4ibd was not provided with Percona’s xtrabackup-1.6.2.tar.gz package, our main issues have been with permissions when attempting a streaming backup.

I have found the following:

  1. The user needs permissions for a temp directory to stream to/from. The my.cnf of the target database cannot be used because …
