Log rotate and the (deleted) MySQL log file mystery
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Did your logging stop working after you set up logrotate? Then this post might be for you.

Archive your log files!

Some time ago, Peter Boros wrote about Rotating MySQL Slow Logs safely, explaining the steps of a “best practice” log rotate/archive. This post will add more info about the topic.

When running logrotate for MySQL (after proper setting the /etc/logrotate.d/mysql conf file) from anacron, there’s a situation that you might potentially face if the user and password used to execute the …

Discussing the innodb_log_block_size variable
+3 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Not a ground-breaking post here, but if you are interested in knowing more about the innodb_log_block_size variable, or if you use SSD cards and/or large InnoDB log files on ext4, then this is for you.

I’d read about it before briefly before, but didn’t give it too much thought until I ran across the following entry in an error log the other day:

InnoDB: Warning: innodb_log_block_size has been changed
from default value 512. (###EXPERIMENTAL### operation)

This got me wanting to know more.

Basically, this variable changes the size of transaction log records. Generally, the default of 512 is a good value. However, …

Dynamic compound statements in MariaDB
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

A long-ago-discussed and much-requested feature, "dynamic compound statements", is working at last.

It's been eleven years since the original discussion of dynamic compound statements for MySQL, as you can see by looking at the worklog task on the wayback machine. (As usual, you have to click the "high level architecture" box to see the meat of the specification.) The essential idea is that one can directly enter compound statements like BEGIN ... END and conditional statements like "IF ... END IF" and looping statements …

Disabling InnoDB in MySQL 5.6 and MariaDB 10.0
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

There are a few circumstances where one will not want to run with only MyISAM tables. In this case, it can be beneficial to completely disable InnoDB.

As InnoDB has become more prevalent, disabling it in MySQL requires a little more effort than before.

In MariaDB 10.0, you can still completely disable it as you have done in the past (just add the –skip-innodb option, specify default-storage-engine=MyISAM, and comment out other InnoDB options):


Alternatively, instead of –skip-innodb, you can instead use “innodb=OFF”:

skip-innodb …

Resolving “Unknown storage engine ‘InnoDB’” Error when Running MyISAM-only and Upgrading to MySQL 5.6 or MariaDB 10.0
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

I know, what, MyISAM-only? Yes, it’s true, and it occurs more than you might think.

If you do run MyISAM-only, it’s common to have disabled InnoDB altogether (–skip-innodb) to avoid allocating any RAM to it, and to avoid unnecessary files required for backups, and so forth. (See this post if interested in disabling InnoDB in MySQL 5.6 and/or MariaDB 10.0.)

One improvement in MySQL 5.6 and MariaDB 10.0 is the addition of some system tables. The 2 that are in …

How to setup High Availability PrestaShop on multiple servers with MariaDB Galera Cluster
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

November 7, 2014 By Severalnines

PrestaShop is a popular open source e-commerce software powering over 200,000 online stores, according to the company. We’ve seen a bit of interest into high availability PrestaShop setups, so this post will show you how to achieve that on multiple servers. Note that this setup not only caters for failures, but by load balancing traffic across multiple servers, it also allows the system to scale and handle more users.

This post is similar to our previous posts on web application scalability and high availability:

Stopping a Runaway Rollback due to Failing Mass Import or ALTER TABLE
+2 Vote Up -0Vote Down

I ran into this the other day, and while the solution is documented in the manual, it was kind of buried, so I thought I’d mention it here (and hopefully make it easier for others searching for this in the future).

In this specific instance, one was running a huge LOAD DATA (10 hours into it) and had to terminate the LOAD DATA command.

Terminating the command is one thing, but preventing InnoDB from trying to undo the rows that were inserted is another.

In this case, the LOAD DATA will easily re-create the table in question, so the existing table can be “thrown out”, so to speak. This, of course, is …

osquery is neat
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Facebook recently made opensource, osquery. It gives you operating system data via SQL queries! Its very neat, and you can test this even on MacOSX (it works on that platform & Linux). It is by far the project with the most advanced functionality, linked here in this post.

I noticed that rather quickly, there was a PostgreSQL project, called pgosquery, based on Foreign Data Wrappers with a similar idea. (apparently it was written in …

Benchmark of Load Balancers for MySQL/MariaDB Galera Cluster
+1 Vote Up -0Vote Down

October 31, 2014 By Severalnines

When running a MariaDB Cluster or Percona XtraDB Cluster, it is common to use a load balancer to distribute client requests across multiple database nodes. Load balancing SQL requests aims to optimize the usage of the database nodes, maximize throughput, minimize response times and avoid overload of the Galera nodes. 

In this blog post, we’ll take a look at four different open source load balancers, and do a quick benchmark to compare performance:
