Enhanced replication monitoring in ProxySQL 1.4.4

ProxySQL and pt-heartbeat

The Percona toolkit provides a very useful script for more accurate replication lag monitoring called pt-heartbeat. The pt-heartbeat script provides replication lag metrics based on actual data that has been replicated and is more accurate than the Seconds_Behind_Master metrics gathered from the output of SHOW SLAVE STATUS. Seconds_Behind_Master relies purely on system time (i.e. current time - time the event executed on the master server). By default ProxySQL relies on the output of the SHOW SLAVE STATUS command in order to identify replicas that should be excluded from the backend connection pool when max_replication_lag has been configured for a server in the mysql_servers table.

Starting from ProxySQL version 1.4.4 a new feature has been introduced in order to leverage the data provided by pt-heartbeat and …

Does the Meltdown Fix Affect Performance for MySQL on Bare Metal?

In this blog post, we’ll look at does the Meltdown fix affect performance for MySQL on bare metal servers.

Since the news about the Meltdown bug, there were a lot of reports on the performance hit from proposed fixes. We have looked at how the fix affects MySQL (Percona Server for MySQL) under a sysbench workload.

In this case, we used bare metal boxes with the following specifications:

  • Two-socket Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU E5-2683 v3 @ 2.00GHz (in total 56 entries in /proc/cpuinfo)
  • Ubuntu 16.04
  • Memory: 256GB
  • Storage: Samsung SM863 1.9TB SATA SSD
  • Percona Server for MySQL 5.7.20
  • Kernel (vulnerable) 4.13.0-21
