The Address Sanitizer Finds Bugs in TokuFT
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

This blog describes how the Address Sanitizer found bugs in the TokuFT (now PerconaFT) storage library.  TokuFT is the storage library used by the TokuDB for MySQL and TokuMX for MongoDB products.  TokuFT is currently tested with valgrind's

Optimizing PXC Xtrabackup State Snapshot Transfer
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

State Snapshot Transfer (SST) at a glance

PXC uses a protocol called State Snapshot Transfer to provision a node joining an existing cluster with all the data it needs to synchronize.  This is analogous to cloning a slave in asynchronous replication:  you take a full backup of one node and copy it to the new one, while tracking the replication position of the backup.

PXC automates this process using scriptable SST methods.  The most common of these methods is the xtrabackup-v2 method which is the default in PXC 5.6.  Xtrabackup generally is more favored over other SST methods because it is …

How much could you benefit from MySQL 5.6 parallel replication?
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

I have heard this question quite often: “At busy times, our replicas start lagging quite frequently. We are using N schemas, so which performance boost could we expect from MySQL 5.6 parallel replication?” Here is a quick way to give you a rough estimate of the potential benefit.

General idea

In MySQL 5.6, parallelism is added at the schema level. So in theory, if you have N schemas and if you use N parallel threads, replication could be up to N times faster. This assumes at least 2 things:

  • Replication throughput scales linearly with the number of parallel threads.
  • Writes are …

Races in the TokuFT Race Detector

TokuFT (now called PerconaFT) is the write optimized storage component used by TokuDB for MySQL and TokuMX for MongoDB.  Since TokuFT is its own component, TokuFT can be tested independently of TokuDB and TokuMX. …

The MySQL query cache: Worst enemy or best friend?
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

During the last couple of months I have been involved in an unusually high amount of performance audits for e-commerce applications running with Magento. And although the systems were quite different, they also had one thing in common: the MySQL query cache was very useful. That was counter-intuitive for me as I’ve always expected the query cache to be such a bottleneck that response time is better when the query cache is turned off no matter what. That lead me to run a few experiments to better understand when the query cache can be helpful.

Some context

The query cache is …

PXC – Incremental State transfers in detail
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

IST Basics

State transfers in Galera remain a mystery to most people.  Incremental State transfers (as opposed to full State Snapshot transfers) are used under the following conditions:

  • The Joiner node reports Galera a valid Galera GTID to the cluster
  • The Donor node selected contains all the transactions the Joiner needs to catch up to the rest of the cluster in its Gcache
  • The Donor node can establish a TCP connection to the Joiner on port 4568 (by default)

IST states

Galera has …

Why base64-output=DECODE-ROWS does not print row events in MySQL binary logs
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Lately I saw many cases when users specified option

--base64-output=DECODE-ROWS

  to print out a statement representation of row events in MySQL binary logs just to get nothing. Reason for this is obvious: option

--base64-output=DECODE-ROWS

  does not convert row events into its string representation, this is job of option

--verbose

. But why users mix these two options so often? This blog post is result of my investigations.

There are already two great blog posts about printing row events on the …

Multi-source replication in MySQL 5.7 vs Tungsten Replicator
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

MySQL 5.7 comes with a new set of features and multi-source replication is one of them. In few words this means that one slave can replicate from different masters simultaneously.

During the last couple of months I’ve been playing a lot with this trying to analyze its potential in a real case that I’ve been facing while working with a customer.

This was motivated because my customer is already using multi-sourced slaves with Tungsten Replicator and I wanted to do a side-by-side comparison between Tungsten Replicator and Multi-source Replication in MySQL 5.7

Consider the following scenario:

InnoDB vs TokuDB in LinkBench benchmark
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Previously I tested Tokutek’s Fractal Trees (TokuMX & TokuMXse) as MongoDB storage engines – today let’s look into the MySQL area.

I am going to use modified LinkBench in a heavy IO-load.

I compared InnoDB without compression, InnoDB with 8k compression, TokuDB with quicklz compression.
Uncompressed datasize is 115GiB, and cachesize is 12GiB for InnoDB and 8GiB + …
