Fixing errant transactions with mysqlslavetrx prior to a GTID failover

Errant transactions are a major issue when using GTID replication. Although this isn’t something new, the drawbacks are more notorious with GTID than with regular replication.

The situation where errant transaction bites you is a common DBA task: Failover. Now that tools like MHA have support for GTID replication (starting from 0.56 version), this protocol is becoming more popular, and so are the issues with errant transactions. Luckily, the fix is as simple as …

MySQL Utilities Makes Skipping Transactions on Multiple Servers Easy

We are very happy to introduce a new MySQL utility named "mysqlslavetrx", which allows users to easily skip multiple transactions on multiple servers in a single step. This utility is one of three new utilities included in MySQL Utilities release-1.6.1 Alpha. The other utilities are "mysqlbinlogpurge" and "mysqlbinlogrotate", which can be used to purge and rotate binary logs.

The mysqlslavetrx utility allows you to skip multiple transactions on several slaves. More precisely, it injects empty transactions for the specified Global Transaction Identifier (GTID) set and list of target slaves. Skipping transactions can be useful to quickly recover from erroneous situations that can occur during the replication process, or to handle errant transactions. Check out the following blog posts for more details about concrete situations where you might need to inject empty transactions:

Errant transactions: Major hurdle for GTID-based failover in MySQL 5.6

I have previously written about the new replication protocol that comes with GTIDs in MySQL 5.6. Because of this new replication protocol, you can inadvertently create errant transactions that may turn any failover to a nightmare. Let’s see the problems and the potential solutions.

In short

  • Errant transactions may cause all kinds of data corruption/replication errors when failing over.
  • Detection of errant transactions can be done with the GTID_SUBSET() and GTID_SUBTRACT() functions.
  • If you find an errant transaction on one …
