The perils of uniform hardware and RAID auto-learn cycles
+2 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Last night a customer had an emergency in selected machines on a large cluster of quite uniform database servers. Some of the servers were slowing down in a very puzzling way over a short time span (a couple of hours). Queries were taking multiple seconds to execute instead of being practically instantaneous. But nothing seemed to have changed. No increase in traffic, no code changes, nothing. Some of the servers got sick and then well again; others that seemed to be identical were still sick; others hadn’t shown any symptoms yet. The servers were in master-master pairs, and the reads were being served entirely from the passive machine in the pair. The servers that were having trouble were the active ones, those accepting writes.

The customer had graphs of system metrics (++customer), and the symptoms we observed were

Success with OpenSolaris + ZFS + MySQL in production!
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Pimp My Drive by Richard and Barb

There’s remarkably little information online about using MySQL on ZFS, successfully or not, so I did what any enterprising geek would do: Built a box, threw some data on it, and tossed it into production to see if it would sink or swim.

I’m a Linux geek, have been since 1993 (Slackware!). All of SmugMug’s datacenters (and
