Multi-source Replication with MariaDB Galera Cluster

December 1, 2014 By Severalnines

MariaDB 10 supports multi-source replication, and each MariaDB Galera node can have up to 64 masters connected to it. So it is possible to use a MariaDB Cluster as an aggregator for many single-instance MariaDB master servers.

In this blog post, we are going to show you how to setup multi-source replication with MariaDB Galera Cluster, where one of the Galera nodes is acting as slave to 3 MariaDB masters (see diagram below). If you would like to set this up with Percona XtraDB Cluster or Galera Cluster (Codership), please read this post instead.




MariaDB has a different implementation of Global Transaction ID (GTID), and is enabled by default starting from MariaDB 10.0.2. Multi-source replication in MariaDB works …

How to Set Up Asynchronous Replication from Galera Cluster to Standalone MySQL server with GTID

March 3, 2014 By Severalnines

Hybrid replication, i.e. combining Galera and asynchronous MySQL replication in the same setup, became much easier with MySQL 5.6 and GTID. Although it was fairly straightforward to replicate from a standalone MySQL server to a Galera Cluster, doing it the other way round (Galera → standalone MySQL) was a bit more challenging. At least until MySQL 5.6 and GTID. 

There are a few good reasons to attach an asynchronous slave to a Galera Cluster. For one, long-running reporting/OLAP type queries on a Galera node might slow down an entire cluster, if the reporting load is so intensive that the node has to spend considerable effort coping with it. So reporting queries can be sent to a standalone server, effectively isolating Galera from the reporting load. In a belts and suspenders approach, an …
