Beware the SST

In Percona XtraDB Cluster (PXC) I often run across users who are fearful of SSTs on their clusters. I’ve always maintained that if you can’t cope with a SST, PXC may not be right for you, but that doesn’t change the fact that SSTs with multiple Terabytes of data can be quite costly.

MySQL organizes all the data as tables, irrespective of storage engine used.

It backs up all the corrupted database tables and makes their entries in the error log.
