InnoDB Flushing in Action for Percona Server for MySQL

As the second part of the earlier post Give Love to Your SSDs – Reduce innodb_io_capacity_max! we wanted to put together some concepts on how InnoDB flushing works in recent Percona Server for MySQL versions (8.0.x prior to 8.0.19, or 5.7.x). It is important to understand this aspect of InnoDB in order to tune it correctly. This post is a bit long and complex as it goes very deep into some InnoDB internals.

InnoDB internally handles flush operations in the background to remove dirty pages from the buffer pool. A dirty page is a page that is modified in memory but not yet flushed to disk. This is done to lower the write load and the latency of the transactions. Let’s explore the various sources of flushing inside InnoDB.

Idle Flushing

We already discussed the idle flushing in the previous post …

Automatic Schema Synchronization in NDB Cluster 8.0: Part 2

In part 1, we took a brief, high-level look at the various protocols and mechanisms used to keep the Data Dictionary (DD) of MySQL servers connected to a MySQL Cluster in synchronization with each other and with the NDB Dictionary.…

Troubleshooting an OLAP system on InnoDB

As a part of Mydbops Consulting we have a below problem statement from one of our client.

We have a high powered server for reporting which in turn powers our internal dashboard for viewing the logistics status.Even with a high end hardware, we had a heavy CPU usage and which in turn triggers spikes in replication lag and slowness. Below is the hardware configuration.

OS : Debian 9 (Stretch)
CPU : 40
RAM : 220G (Usable)
Disk : 3T SSD with 80K sustained IOPS.
MySQL : 5.6.43-84.3-log Percona Server (GPL)
Datasize : 2.2TB

Below is the graph on CPU utilisation from Grafana.

Since the work load is purely reporting(OLAP) we could observe a similar type of queries with different ranges. Below is the Execution plan of the query. It is a join query over 6 tables.

Moving from MySQL 5.7 to MySQL 8.0 - What You Should Know

April 2018 is not just a date for the MySQL world. MySQL 8.0 was released there, and more than 1 year after, it’s probably time to consider migrating to this new version.

MySQL 8.0 has important performance and security improvements, and, as in all migration to a new database version, there are several things to take into account before going into production to avoid hard issues like data loss, excessive downtime, or even a rollback during the migration task.

In this blog, we’ll mention some of the new MySQL 8.0 features, some deprecated stuff, and what you need to keep in mind before migrating.

What’s New in MySQL 8.0?

Let’s now summarize some of the most important features mentioned in the official documentation for this new …

Faster restarts with local and partial checkpoints in MySQL NDB Cluster

The MySQL NDB Cluster team works on fundamental redesigns of core parts of NDB architecture. One of these changes is the partial checkpoint algorithm. You can now take full advantage of it when building much larger clusters: NDB 8.0 can use 16 TB data memory per data node for in-memory tables.

Automatic Schema Synchronization in NDB Cluster 8.0: Part 1

Data nodes are the distributed, sharded storage core of MySQL NDB Cluster. Its data is usually accessed by MySQL Servers (also called SQL nodes in NDB parlance). The MySQL servers each have their own transactional Data Dictionary (DD) where all the metadata describing tables, databases, tablespaces, logfile groups, foreign keys, and other objects are stored for use by MySQL server.…

Beware of Unstable Query Digests in MySQL

If you’re using MySQL’s Performance Schema you may use “query digests” as IDs to identify specific query patterns in the events_statements_summary_by_digest Performance Schema Table.

You might assume these hashes are stable between different versions, so, for example, when upgrading from MySQL 5.7 to MySQL 8, you can compare the query response time and other execution details for the same hashes as part of your upgrade process and have confidence that queries run the same (or better) after the upgrade.   Unfortunately, you can’t.

For some reason, the hashing algorithm is different between MySQL 5.6,  MySQL 5.7, and MySQL 8 even for the most trivial queries:

MySQL 5.6

mysql> select digest,digest_text  from events_statements_summary_by_digest where digest_text='commit';
+----------------------------------+-------------+
| digest                           | digest_text | …

Rebuilding a MySQL 8.0 Replication Slave Using a Clone Plugin

With MySQL 8.0 Oracle adopted a new approach to development. Instead of pushing features with major versions, almost every minor MySQL 8.0 version comes with new features or improvements. One of these new features is what we would like to focus on in this blog post. 

Historically MySQL did not come with good tools for provisioning. Sure, you had mysqldump, but it is just a logical backup tool, not really suitable for larger environments. MySQL enterprise users could benefit from MySQL Enterprise Backup while community users could use xtrabackup. Neither of those came with a clean MySQL Community deployments though. It was quite annoying as provisioning is a task you do quite often. You may need to build a new slave, rebuild a failed one - all of this will …
