Before every release: A glimpse into Percona XtraDB Cluster CI testing
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

I spoke last month at linux.conf.au 2014 in Perth, Australia, and one of my sessions focused on the “Continuous Integration (CI) testing of Percona XtraDB Cluster (PXC)” at the Developer,Testing, Release and CI miniconf.

Here is the video of the presentation:

Percona XtraDB Cluster/ Galera with Percona Monitoring Plugins
+1 Vote Up -0Vote Down

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,

Percona XtraDB Cluster: Setting up a simple cluster
+2 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Percona XtraDB Cluster (PXC) is different enough from async replication that it can be a bit of a puzzle how to do things the Galera way.  This post will attempt to illustrate the basics of setting up 2 node PXC cluster from scratch.

Requirements

Two servers (could be VMs) that can talk to each other.  I’m using CentOS for this post.  Here’s a dirt-simple Vagrant setup: https://github.com/jayjanssen/two_centos_nodes to make this easy (on Virtualbox).

These servers are talking over the 192.168.70.0/24 internal network for our example.

Percona XtraDB Cluster (PXC) in the real world: Share your use cases!
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

The aim of this post is to enumerate real-world usage of Percona XtraDB Cluster (PXC), and also to solicit use cases from the readers. One of the prominent usages in the production environment that we have come across (and our Percona consultants have assisted) is that of HP Cloud. There is a post about it here by Patrick Galbraith of HP. The post focuses on their deployment of PXC for HP Cloud DNS. The post focuses on the key aspects of

Choosing a MySQL HA Solution – MySQL Webinar: June 5
+1 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Selecting the most appropriate solution for a MySQL HA infrastructure is as much a business and philosophical decision as it is a technical one, but often the choice is made without adequately considering all three perspectives.  When too much attention is paid to one of these aspects at the cost of the others, the resulting system may be over-engineered, poorly-performing, and/or various other flavors of suboptimal.

On Wednesday, June 5, at 10 a.m. PDT (1700 UTC), I will be presenting a webinar entitled, Choosing a MySQL HA Solution, in

Is Synchronous Replication right for your app?
+5 Vote Up -0Vote Down

I talk with lot of people who are really interested in Percona XtraDB Cluster (PXC) and mostly they are interested in PXC as a high-availability solution.  But, what they tend not to think too much about is if moving from async to synchronous replication is right for their application or not.

Facts about Galera replication

There’s a lot of different facts about Galera that come into play here, and it isn’t always obvious how they will affect your database workload.  For example:

  • Transaction commit takes approximately the worst packet round trip time (RTT) between any two nodes in your cluster.
  • Transaction apply on slave nodes is still asynchronous from client commit (except on the original node where the transaction is

Follow these basics when migrating to Percona XtraDB Cluster for MySQL
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Galera/Percona XtraDB Cluster (PXC) for MySQL is a hot thing right now and some users jump right in without enough testing. Consequently, they’re more likely to either suffer failure or issues that prevent them from moving forward. If you are thinking of migrating your workload to Percona XtraDB Cluster, make sure to go through these basics.

log_slave_updates is REQUIRED

You need to have log_slave_updates enabled on the cluster node acting as async slave for replicated events from the async master to be applied to the other

Percona XtraDB Cluster reference architecture with HaProxy
+1 Vote Up -0Vote Down

This post is a step-by-step guide to set up Percona XtraDB Cluster (PXC) in a virtualized test sandbox. I used Amazon EC2 micro instances, but the content here is applicable for any kind of virtualization technology (for example VirtualBox). The goal is to give step by step instructions, so the setup process is understandable and it could serve as a reference architecture.

You will need 4 virtual machines. 3 for PXC and 1 for the client, which will have HaProxy. I used CentOS 6 as the operating system, the instructions are similar for any Linux distribution.

The client node will have HaProxy installed and it will redirect requests to PXC nodes. This approach works well in real-world scenarios too. Running HaProxy on the application servers instead of having them as dedicated entities gives you benefits like you don’t need

Comparing Percona XtraDB Cluster with Semi-Sync replication Cross-WAN
+2 Vote Up -0Vote Down

I have a customer who is considering Percona XtraDB Cluster (PXC) in a two colo WAN environment.  They wanted me to do a test comparing PXC against semi-synchronous replication to see how they stack up against each other.

Test Environment

The test environment included AWS EC2 nodes in US-East and US-West (Oregon).  The ping RTT latency between these nodes was right around 100ms.

All environments used Percona Server or Percona XtraDB Cluster server 5.5.24.  Innodb durability was disabled for all tests (innodb_flush_log_at_trx_commit=2).  All other settings were the same kept the same unless otherwise noted.

I tested against the following
