Multi-source replication in MySQL 5.7 vs Tungsten Replicator

MySQL 5.7 comes with a new set of features and multi-source replication is one of them. In few words this means that one slave can replicate from different masters simultaneously.

During the last couple of months I’ve been playing a lot with this trying to analyze its potential in a real case that I’ve been facing while working with a customer.

This was motivated because my customer is already using multi-sourced slaves with Tungsten Replicator and I wanted to do a side-by-side comparison between Tungsten Replicator and Multi-source Replication in MySQL 5.7

Consider the following scenario:

DB1 is our main master attending mostly writes from several applications, it also needs to serve read …

Keep your MySQL data in sync when using Tungsten Replicator

MySQL replication isn’t perfect and sometimes our data gets out of sync, either by a failure in replication or human intervention. We are all familiar with Percona Toolkit’s pt-table-checksum and pt-table-sync to help us check and fix data inconsistencies – but imagine the following scenario where we mix regular replication with the Tungsten Replicator:

We have regular replication going from master (db1) to 4 slaves (db2, db3, db4 and db5), but also we find that db3 is also master of db4 and db5 using Tungsten replication for 1 database called test. This setup is currently working this way because it was deployed some time ago when multi-source replication was not possible using regular MySQL replication. This is now a working feature in …

Check for MySQL slave lag with Percona Toolkit plugin for Tungsten Replicator

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

Replicating from MySQL to NuoDB with Tungsten Replicator

In this webinar, recorded 7/31/13, Wiqar Chaudry (Tech Evangelist at NuoDB) demonstrates how to easily replicate from MySQL to NuoDB with Tungsten Replicator. 

In addition, see Philip Stoev's blog describing how to configure replication between MySQL and NuoDB using Tungsten Replicator.

MySQL Conference and Expo 2013 feelings (#perconalive)

I wasn’t at the MySQL Conference this year but it was very nice to follow this event from Paris.
Of course I didn’t feel the general atmosphere by visiting booths or met fabulous people.
But it was a great opportunity to offer you a live post about the conference with an external point of view.

Twitter, RSS feeds (yes Google, I still use RSS), Planet MySQL and infiltrators were my best friends during this crazy week.

I would like to summarize the major announcements and events occurs during this tenth edition.

Oracle at Percona Live!

Yes, Oracle was at Percona Live 2013 and it was for the best.
I invite you to watch this keynote from …

Tungsten University: Replicate Between MySQL And Oracle

  Oracle is the most powerful DBMS in the world. However, Oracle's expensive and complex replication makes it difficult to build highly available applications or move data in real-time to data warehouses and popular databases like MySQL.

In this webinar you will learn how Continuent Tungsten solves problems with Oracle replication at a fraction of the cost of other solutions and with less

Biggest MySQL related news in the last 24 hours

For me, the biggest news in the last 24 hours so far has been:

  1. SkySQL merges with Monty Program, developers of MariaDB. This of course affects me directly and leads to a change in affiliation in a few months.
  2. TokuDB goes opensource. I think this is really big news. Beyond just the fact that it can now be a storage engine in the main MariaDB tree, I love the work they’re doing to extend it to be an engine for MongoDB as well.

Building simple & complex replication clusters with Tungsten Replicator by Giuseppe Maxia

Giuseppe Maxia of Continuent.

MySQL replication is single threaded. Multi-master replication is complex with MySQL. Circular replication works but is very fragile. Once you’ve achieved the feat, how do you avoid conflicts? The lack of global transaction ID today also means you may have slaves that may not be synchronized fully. Finally, some people like to replicate to PostgreSQL, Oracle and MongoDB.

This is where Tungsten Replicator comes into place. Opensource. 100% GPLv2. You can do easy failover (no need to synchronize the slaves manually when a master dies), have multiple masters, multiple sources to a single slave, conflict prevention, parallel replication, and replicate to Oracle/PostgreSQL database (heterogeneous replication – …
