New Feature in Percona XtraDB Cluster 8.0 – Streaming Replication

Percona XtraDB Cluster 8.0 comes with an upgraded Galera 4.0 library, which provides a new feature – streaming replication. Let’s review what it is and when it might be helpful.

Previous versions of Percona XtraDB Cluster with Galera 3.x had a limitation in how big transactions are handled.

Let’s review the performance under sysbench-tpcc workload when in parallel we update a big update on a table that is even non-related to the tables in the primary workload.

Without Streaming Replication

Let’s run two workloads.

  1. sysbench-tpcc workload with 1 sec resolution
  2. In parallel run UPDATE oltp.sbtest SET k=k+1 LIMIT 1000000

Running update:

mysql> update sbtest1 set k=k+1 limit 1000000;
Query OK, 1000000 rows affected (34.48 sec)
Rows matched: 1000000 …

Galera 4 Streaming Replication in Percona XtraDB Cluster 8.0

I was testing the latest Percona XtraDB Cluster 8.0 (PXC) release which has the Galera 4 plugin, and I would like to share my experiences and thoughts on the Streaming Replication feature so far.

What Is Streaming Replication, in One Sentence?

In Galera 4, the large transaction could split into smaller fragments, and even before it got committed these fragments have been replicated to the other nodes and have already started the certification and apply process.

The manual describes all the pros and cons, but let’s see how it works. I have created a table with 10M rows and I am going to run some large updates on that.

First I have run the updates without Streaming Replication, and because it is disabled by …

Testing Percona XtraDB Cluster 8.0 Using Vagrant

As Alkin and Ramesh have shown us in their Testing Percona XtraDB Cluster 8.0 with DBdeployer post, it is now possible to easily deploy an environment to test the features provided by the brand new release of Percona XtraDB Cluster 8.0.

We have also worked on creating a testing environment available for those that use Vagrant instead. Be it that it’s what you are used to working with, or that you want a proper VM for each instance, in particular, you can use the following commands to easily deploy a three-node cluster.

Requirements

Vagrant runs in Linux, Mac OS, and Windows, you just need to have the packages installed. Visit …

Testing Percona XtraDB Cluster 8.0 with DBdeployer

In the light of support for Percona XtraDB Cluster (PXC), the DBdeployer anniversary, and the newly released Percona XtraDB Cluster 8.0, I’m happy to announce that Giuseppe Maxia has recently updated DBdeployer to support Percona XtraDB Cluster 8.0.

We at Percona, with my colleague Ramesh Sivaraman, have tested and deployed Percona XtraDB Cluster (PXC) 8.0.18  successfully using DBdeployer.

What is DBdeployer and How Do You …

Group Replication and Percona XtraDB Cluster: Overview of Common Operations

In this blog post I would like to give an overview of the most common failover scenarios and operations when using MySQL Group Replication 8.0.19 (aka GR) and Percona XtraDB Cluster 8 (PXC) (which is based on Galera), and explain how each technology handles each situation. I have created a three-node cluster with Group Replication using a single Primary and a three-node PXC, both with default settings. I am also going to use ProxySQL to interface with both clusters.

In both clusters, the name of the nodes are mysql1, mysql2,  and mysql3. In Group Replication the Primary node is where the writes go if we are using single primary configuration. In PXC, I will use the same term as well and will call the node Primary where I am sending the writes. Just to note, in PXC there is no concept of primary node, …

MySQL Group Replication – Partial Network Failure Performance Impact

In this two-part blog series, I wanted to cover some failover scenarios with Group Replication. In part one, I will discuss an interesting behavior and performance degradation I discovered while writing these posts. In part two, I will show several failover scenarios and demonstrate how Group Replication handles each situation.

The test environment is very basic, a three-node Group Replication (mysql1,mysql2,myslq3) on MySQL 8.0.19 with default settings. mysql2 is the Primary node.

In this scenario, I was testing a partial network failure when a node gets separated from the primary, but other nodes still can see it.

You would think mysql3 is going to lose quorum and exit the cluster, but no. Inside the cluster, all the nodes are in constant communication with each other, not just …

Help Drive the Future of Percona XtraDB Cluster

Percona is happy to announce the experimental release of Percona XtraDB Cluster 8.0. This is a major step for tuning Percona XtraDB Cluster to be more cloud- and user-friendly. This is the second experimental release that combines the updated and feature-rich Galera 4, with substantial improvements made by our development team.

Improvements and New Features in Percona XtraDB Cluster

Galera 4, included in Percona XtraDB Cluster 8.0, has many new features. Here is a list of the most essential improvements:

  • Streaming replication to support large transactions
  • The synchronization functions allow action coordination (wsrep_last_seen_gtid, wsrep_last_written_gtid, wsrep_sync_wait_upto_gtid)
  • More granular and improved error logging. wsrep_debug is …

ProxySQL 2.0.7 and proxysql-admin Tool Now Available

ProxySQL 2.0.7, released by ProxySQL, is now available for download in the Percona Repository along with Percona’s proxysql-admin tool.

ProxySQL is a high-performance proxy, currently for MySQL and database servers in the MySQL ecosystem (like Percona Server for MySQL and MariaDB). It acts as an intermediary for client requests seeking resources from the database. René Cannaò created ProxySQL for DBAs as a means of solving complex replication topology issues.

This release includes ProxySQL 2.0.7 which introduces many new features and enhancements and also …

Percona XtraDB Cluster 8.0 (experimental release) : SST Improvements

Starting with the experimental release of Percona XtraDB Cluster 8.0, we have made changes to the SST process to make the process more robust and easier to use.

  • mysqldump and rsync are no longer supported SST methods.

    Support for mysqldump was deprecated starting with PXC 5.7 and has now been completely removed.

    MySQL 8.0 introduced a new Redo Log format that limited the use of rsync while upgrading from PXC 5.7 to 8.0. In addition, the new Galera-4 also introduced changes that further limits the use of rsync.

    The only supported SST method is xtrabackup-v2.

  • A separate Percona XtraBackup installation is no longer required.

    The required …
