High Availability with mysqlnd_ms on Percona XtraDB Cluster

This is the second part of my series on High Availability with mysqlnd_ms. In my first post, “Simple MySQL Master HA with mysqlnd_ms,” I showed a simple HA solution using asynchronous MySQL replication. This time we will see how to leverage an all-primary cluster where you can write to all nodes. In this post I used Percona XtraDB Cluster, but you should also be able to do the same with MySQL NDB Cluster or Tungsten Replicator.

To start with, here is the mysqlnd_ms configuration I used:


.  All of these files are available from my Github repository. Below, I have three Percona XtraDB Cluster nodes, …

Simple MySQL Master HA with mysqlnd_ms

I had the pleasure of presenting to the PHP Users Group Philippines a few days ago about mysqlnd_ms. The mysqlnd plugin, MySQL Master Slave, is a transparent layer on top of mysqlnd extension. This allows you to do read-write splitting and slave reads load balancing without needing to change anything from your application. But do you know you can also achieve a form of high availability with this plugin? I shared 2 forms on my presentation, using async MySQL replication either in master-slave configuration or master-master configuration, while the second form is having an all primary cluster where you can write to all nodes.

This first part is to demonstrate how you can achieve a simple HA solution using the first form. First, all the sample code here can be found on my GitHub repository. So, to use the mysqlnd_ms plugin, it uses …

Sharding PHP with MySQL Fabric

PHP users who attended any of my recent PHP&MySQL related talks or read Ulf's blog will know our mysqlnd_ms plugin. This plugin hooks into PHP's mysqlnd library and provides transparent support for replication and load-balancing features. Without changing your application you get transparent load-balancing and read-writ splitting so all your reading queries will be sent to a slave while the writes go to a master server. The exact strategies for that can be defined in mysqlnd_ms's configuration so quite often no, or only few application changes are needed. But we have one limitation: The MySQL servers have to be configured in each configuration on all your PHP servers, this can be annoying when you're changing your environment like adding a new slave or promoting a machine to master in case the original master fails. But there's help …

Some sharding support and cache locality optimization support for PHP MySQL driver

It is time for christmas presents: some sharding support and cache locality optimizations are coming with PECL/mysqlnd_ms 1.5. PECL/mysqlnd_ms is a plugin for the mysqlnd library. The plugin adds replication and load balancing support to any PHP MySQL API (mysql, mysqli, PDO_MySQL) if compiled to use the mysqlnd library.

As a MySQL user you can choose between a wide variety of clustering solutions to scale-out. Your options range from eventual consistent solutions to strong consistent ones, from built-in (MySQL Replication, MySQL Cluster) to third party or home-grown. PECL/mysqlnd_ms is a client side load balancer that aims to serve all. …
