Saturday at MySQL Connect
Employee +2 Vote Up -0Vote Down

The first day of the first MySQL Connect conference is done.  It's been a busy day!  Many attendees are interested in the new MySQL Server 5.6 release, but of course MySQL Cluster is the main draw here.  After a session from Oracle on the new features in 7.2, and early access features in 7.3, I attended Santo Leto's MySQL Cluster 'hands on lab'.  Despite having started more clusters than most, it felt like a new and exciting experience installing and running my cluster alongside everyone else.  The lab machines had some networking issues, but with Santo's …

Automated MySQL Master Failover
+1 Vote Up -0Vote Down

After the GitHub MySQL Failover incident a lot of blogs/people have explained that fully automated failover might not be the most optimal solution.

Fully automated failover is indeed dangerous, and should  be avoided if possible. But a complete manual failover is also dangerous. A fully automated manually triggered failover is probably a better solution.

A synchronous replication solution is also not a complete solution. A split-brain situation is a good example of a failure which could happen. Of course most clusters have all kinds of safe guard to prevent that, but unfortunately also safe guards can fail.

MySQL Cluster performance revisited - tcmalloc kicks some ***
+1 Vote Up -0Vote Down

My now long-running series of posts on getting max performance from a very simple MySQL Cluster setup (see details here) is continuing here. As a short intro to what I am trying out here, is to see if I can validate the claim that MySQL Cluster / NDB would be a good replacement for a Key Value Store (KVS) such as MongoDB. I test this in a rather simple single-server environment, but this is for a reason, just not a coincidence: The reason is that RAM is getting inexpensive and servers that can take a lot of RAM are also …

With many proven deployments in web, gaming, telecoms and mobile use-cases, MySQL Cluster is certainly able to meet these sorts of requirements.

But, as a distributed database, developers do need to think a little differently about data access patterns along with …
