Replication Manager Works with MariaDB

Some time ago I wrote a script to manage asynchronous replication links between Percona XtraDB clusters. The original post can be found here. The script worked well with Percona XtraDB Cluster but it wasn’t working well with MariaDB®.  Finally, the replication manager works with MariaDB.

First, let’s review the purpose of the script. Managing replication links between Galera based clusters is a tedious task. There are many potential slaves and many potential masters. Furthermore, each replication link must have only a single slave. Just try to imagine how you would maintain the following replication topology:

A complex replication topology

The above topology consists of five clusters and four …

MySQL 8.0.13 : InnoDB Transparent Tablespace Encryption for General Tablespaces

In my previous post (here) I talked about “InnoDB Transparent tablespace encryption” which was introduced in MySQL 5.7.11. That encryption was limited to file-per-table tablespaces. In MySQL 8.0.13, encryption for general tablespace is introduced. This blog post aims to give a peek into this new feature.…

Percona Server for MySQL 8.0.13-4 Is Now Available

Percona announces the release of Percona Server for MySQL 8.0.13-4 on January 17, 2019 (downloads are available here and from the Percona Software Repositories). This release contains a fix for a critical bug that prevented Percona Server for MySQL 5.7.24-26 from being upgraded to version 8.0.13-3 if there are more than around 1000 tables, or if the maximum allocated InnoDB table ID is around 1000. Percona Server for MySQL 8.0.13-4 is now the current GA release in the 8.0 series.

All of Percona’s software is open-source and free.

Percona Server for MySQL 8.0 includes all the  …

Using Parallel Query with Amazon Aurora for MySQL

Parallel query execution is my favorite, non-existent, feature in MySQL. In all versions of MySQL – at least at the time of writing – when you run a single query it will run in one thread, effectively utilizing one CPU core only. Multiple queries run at the same time will be using different threads and will utilize more than one CPU core.

On multi-core machines – which is the majority of the hardware nowadays – and in the cloud, we have multiple cores available for use. With faster disks (i.e. SSD) we can’t utilize the full potential of IOPS with just one thread.

AWS Aurora (based on MySQL 5.6) now has a version which will support parallelism for SELECT queries (utilizing the read capacity of storage nodes underneath the Aurora cluster). In this article, we will look at how this can improve the reporting/analytical query performance in MySQL. I will compare AWS Aurora with MySQL …

MySQL Mailing Lists

Over the last few years, our community discussions have moved to MySQL Community Slack and MySQL Community Forums. And, Q&A discussions have moved to StackExchange and StackOverflow. The traditional MySQL mailing lists do not have any meaningful traffic, and are being discontinued.

So I encourage you to join the MySQL Community Slack. We are all there, ready to discuss and help: MySQL Engineers, and famous DBAs and developers , and newbies too. Come join us!

Geek code for LSM trees

This is a link to slides from my 5-minute talk at the CIDR 2019 Gong Show. The slides are a brief overview of the geek code for LSM trees. If you click on the settings icon in the slide show you can view the speaker notes which have links to blog posts that have more details. I also pasted the links below. Given time I might add to this post, but most of the content is in my past blog posts. Regardless I think there is more to be discovered about performant, efficient and manageable LSM trees.

The key points are there are more compaction algorithms to discover, we need to make it easier to describe them and compaction is a property of a level, not of the LSM tree. …

Using dbdeployer With MariaDB Server

Some time ago I've noted that one of the tools I use for testing various MySQL and MariaDB cases and to reproduce potential bugs, MySQL-Sandbox, is not updated any more. It turned out that active development switched to its port in Go called dbdeployer. You can find detailed information about dbdeployer and reasons behind developing it provided by its author, Giuseppe Maxia, here and there. See also this post at Percona blog for some quick review of its main features. One of the points of …
