Percona Monitoring Plugins 1.1.3. Addressed CVE-2014-2569.
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Percona is glad to announce the release of Percona Monitoring Plugins 1.1.3.

Changelog:

* Introduced more secure location of PHP script configs to harden a Cacti setup
* Addressed CVE-2014-2569

We have introduced a more secure location /etc/cacti/ for PHP script configs. Earlier, the only way was to keep .php.cnf configs inside of scripts/ folder which falls under the web directory of Cacti setup, thus provides a potential security vulnerability. We strongly recommend to move all .php.cnf files from /usr/share/cacti/scripts/ to /etc/cacti/ and also harden your Cacti setup.

A new tarball is available

The Percona Monitoring Plugins (PMP) provide some free tools to make it easier to monitor PXC/Galera nodes.  Monitoring broadly falls into two categories: alerting and historical graphing, and the plugins support Nagios and Cacti, respectively, for those purposes.

Graphing

An update to the PMP this summer (thanks to our Remote DBA team for supporting this!) added a Galera-specific host template that includes a variety of Galera-related stats,

Inexpensive SSDs for Database Workloads
+2 Vote Up -0Vote Down

The cost of SSDs has been dropping rapidly, and at the time of this writing, 2.5-drives have reached the 1TB capacity mark.  You can actually get inexpensive drives for as little as 60 cents per GB. Even inexpensive SSDs can perform tens of thousands of IOPs and come with 1.5M – 2M hous MTBF and a 5-year warranty: check out the Intel SC S3500 specs as an example. There is however one important factor you need to take into account when considering  SSDs as opposed to conventional hard drives – Write Endurance.

Many of us have heard about SSDs having limits in terms of how many writes SSDs can handle, many however assume this is what is already

Percona Monitoring Plugins fix: Query Response Time
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

After switching from the Better Cacti Templates to the Percona Monitoring Plugins we suffered from the Query Response Time and the Query Time Histogram not graphing at all.

It took me a while to figure out why our new instance wasn’t graphing: the response time query was performing and the script was picking up its values. Also the rrd files were created but for some bizarre reason all values were set to “NaN”, in rrd/cacti terms: Not a Number. If you search on that subject you will come across a lot of (forum) postings stating you need to change your graph type to “GAUGE” or change the MIN/MAX values for your data templates. Strange as this
