Codership first released a version of MySQL 5.7 with the audit log plugin back when Galera Cluster for MySQL 5.7.30 was released back in June 2020. More recently, we also added the audit log plugin to Galera Cluster for MySQL 5.6.51 in April 2021, but I guess the most important was that we also started including it in Galera Cluster for MySQL 8.0.21 too. We also started supporting it across various distributions, including Debian. For today’s exercise, we will use Galera Cluster for MySQL 8.0.23 on CentOS 7 (compatible with Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7). …[Read more]
We talk a lot about Galera Cluster for MySQL being great for High Availability, but what about Disaster Recovery (DR)? Database outages may occur when you lose a data centre due to power outages or natural disaster, so why not plan appropriately in advance?
In this webinar, we will discuss the business considerations including achieving the highest possible uptime, focus on business impact, risk mitigation, and disaster recovery itself. What scenarios are right for you: fully synchronous replication across various data centres? A mix of synchronous and asynchronous to an offsite location?
We will discuss Galera Cluster, mixed setups, the use of proxies, and also evaluate some third party solutions. We will debunk claims about how Galera Cluster might not work across data centers, tell you how to successfully do this across data centres, with performance tuning settings for all the segments. Galera 4 has also been released, making …[Read more]
Just last week we had a Galera Cluster for MySQL streaming replication feature deep dive webinar, by the person that implemented it – Seppo Jaakola. In fact, if you haven’t already read the entire story, we encourage you to read: Galera Streaming Replication: Too Big A Bite Can Choke Your Cluster. We also have the 60 minute video recording for reference.
A huge number of Galera Cluster users have always complained about having issues with large transactions (where writes hang but reads are OK), and we are certain that the correct usage of streaming replication is what will ease that burden. What constitutes a large transaction? Typically when you make big number of …[Read more]
A significant improvement has come to Galera Cluster 4 for MySQL, in the form of streaming replication. When you are dealing with large (greater than 2GB in size) or long running transactions, previous releases of Galera Cluster would reject the transaction; in the current release transactions can be split into fragmented chunks and those rows can be replicated in chunks to the other nodes even before commit. This is the feature that will remove you from all cluster stall issues due to large transaction processing!
While disabled by default, you can use it and configure it dynamically, and there is also the ability to monitor streaming replication progress. Come to this webinar to learn from the primary author, Seppo Jaakola, on why he implemented the feature, how you can use it, finding the optimal fragment size based on workload, and the design trade-offs for the initial release in where the focus was more on functionality over …[Read more]

While we have documented how you might consider Monitoring a Cluster with Galera Manager, we’d also like to take you through a bit more of what is available, before our webinar this week. Please signup for a live demo from install to deployment and management.
You might be used to SHOW GLOBAL STATUS LIKE 'wsrep_%'; from the command line, but why not take a look at all of this on a graph, over time, within the GUI of the Galera Manager? What happens when you feel a node is getting overwhelmed? You tend to check wsrep_flow_control_paused, which returns the percentage of time the node was paused because of Flow Control (normally you do this after a FLUSH STATUS however now you …[Read more]
Today there is NEW ERA for Galera Cluster monitoring and management and as we release Galera Manager 1.0 into the wild for everyone to evaluate, test, and deploy their Galera Clusters within an Amazon Web Services (AWS) Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) environment to achieve MySQL High Availability, Multi-Master MySQL on the cloud and Disaster Recovery, all from the comfort of a web-based graphical user interface (GUI).
What does Galera Manager do? Galera Manager is a deployment, management and monitoring solution for Galera Clusters. A user can easily create clusters, add and remove nodes, and create geo-distributed clusters across multiple AWS regions, all with the click of a few buttons in one’s web browser. Even more useful is the over 620 monitoring metrics available to monitor the health of your clusters. Being fully web-based, you can say goodbye to …[Read more]
