How to set up MySQL InnoDB Cluster? Part One

This post is about setting up MySQL InnoDB Cluster with 5 nodes on a sandbox deployment.  Here, we focus on implementation part, the core concepts will be explained in separate posts.


  • MySQL Engine
  • MySQL Shell

Deploying MySQL InnoDB Cluster involves the following steps:

  • Deploying MySQL Engine (Sandbox Instance)
  • Creating an InnoDB Cluster
  • Adding nodes to InnoDB Cluster
  • Configuring MySQL Router for High Availability.
  • Testing High Availability.

Deploying MySQL Engine:

If the MySQL engines are already installed on all the nodes, you can skip this step and directly move into creating an InnoDB Cluster part.

Cloud Disaster Recovery for MariaDB and MySQL

MySQL has a long tradition in geographic replication. Distributing clusters to remote data centers reduces the effects of geographic latency by pushing data closer to the user. It also provides a capability for disaster recovery. Due to the significant cost of duplicating hardware in a separate site, not many companies were able to afford it in the past. Another cost is skilled staff who is able to design, implement and maintain a sophisticated multiple data centers environment.

With the Cloud and DevOps automation revolution, having distributed datacenter has never been more accessible to the masses. Cloud providers are increasing the range of services they offer for a better price.One can build cross-cloud, hybrid environments with data spread all over the world. One can make flexible and scalable DR plans to approach a broad range of disruption scenarios. In some cases, that can just be a backup stored offsite. In other cases, it can be a …

How to Persist Global Variables Without Using Option Files in MySQL 8.0

A really convenient feature in MySQL 8.0 is the ability to persist the values of global variables across server restarts, without writing them into an options file. This was developed primarily for the benefit of Cloud installations of MySQL, but is very handy for a DBA in on-premise installations too.

To use this feature you need to have the SYSTEM_VARIABLES_ADMIN and PERSIST_RO_VARIABLES_ADMIN privileges.

To demonstrate, we'll increase the value of the max_connections system variable from its default of 151 to 152 and then restart the MySQL server to check that MySQL remembers the new value.

mysql> SHOW GLOBAL VARIABLES LIKE 'max_connections'; +-----------------+-------+ | Variable_name | Value | +-----------------+-------+ | max_connections | 151 | +-----------------+-------+ 1 row in set (#.## sec)

Use SET PERSIST to persist the change that we're about to make:

mysql> SET PERSIST max_connections …

How Monyog Helps Profile Slow Queries in MariaDB

MariaDB came into being the day that Oracle announced the purchase of Sun in 2010.  In order to keep it free under the GNU GPL, Michael Widenius forked MySQL and took several MySQL developers with him in the process.  Since then, MariaDB has been a drop-in replacement for MySQL, albeit with more features and better performance.

In the Improve MariaDB Performance using Query Profiling blog, we learned some useful techniques for tracking and analyzing slow queries using a couple of MariaDB server’s built-in tools: the Slow Query Log and the Performance Schema.  

The Slow Query Log records queries that are deemed to be slow and potentially problematic, that is, queries that take longer than the long_query_time global system variable value to run.

The Performance Schema is a storage engine …
