OpenStack’s Trove: The benefits of this database as a service (DBaaS)
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

In a previous post, my colleague Dimitri Vanoverbeke discussed at a high level the concepts of database as a service (DBaaS), OpenStack and OpenStack’s implementation of a DBaaS, Trove. Today I’d like to delve a bit further into Trove and discuss where it fits in, and who benefits.

Just to recap, Trove is OpenStack’s implementation of a database as a service for its cloud infrastructure as a service (IaaS). And as the mission statement declares, the Trove project seeks to provide a scalable and reliable cloud database service providing functionality for both relational and non-relational database engines. With the current release of

Check for MySQL slave lag with Percona Toolkit plugin for Tungsten Replicator
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

A while back, I made some changes to the plugin interface for pt-online-schema-change which allows custom replication checks to be written. As I was adding this functionality, I also added the --plugin option to pt-table-checksum. This was released in Percona Toolkit 2.2.8.

With these additions, I spent some time writing a plugin that allows Percona Toolkit tools to use Tungsten Replicator to check for slave lag, you can find the code at

Why did we develop percona-agent in Go?
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

We recently open-sourced our percona-agent and if you check out the source code, you’ll find that it is written in the Go programming language (aka Golang). For those not up to speed, the percona-agent is a real-time client-side agent for Percona Cloud Tools.

Our requirements are quite demanding for our agents. This one is software that works on a real production server, so it must be fast, reliable, lightweight and easy to distribute. Surprisingly enough, binaries compiled by Go fit these characteristics.

There are of course alternatives that we considered. On the scripting side: Perl, Python, PHP, Ruby et al. These are not necessarily fast, and the distribution is also interesting.

Row-based replication, MySQL 5.6 upgrades and temporal data types
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Whither your rollback plan?

MySQL 5.6 upgrades are in full swing these days and knowing how to safely upgrade from MySQL 5.5 to 5.6 is important. When upgrading a replication environment, it’s important that you can build a migration plan that safely allows for your upgrade with minimal risk — rollback is often a very important component to this.

For many people this means upgrading slaves first and then the master.  The strategy of an older master replicating to a newer slave is well known and has been supported in MySQL replication for a very long time.  To be specific:  you can have a MySQL 5.6 slave of a 5.5 master and this should work fine until you upgrade your master and/or promote one of the slaves to be the
