This Week in Data with Colin Charles #54: Percona Server for MySQL is Alpha

Join Percona Chief Evangelist Colin Charles as he covers happenings, gives pointers and provides musings on the open source database community.

I consider this to be the biggest news for the week: Alpha Build of Percona Server for MySQL 8.0. Experiment with it in a Docker container. It is missing column compression with dictionary support, native partitioning for TokuDB and MyRocks (excited to see that this is coming!), and encryption key rotation and scrubbing. All in, this should be a fun release to try, test, and also to file bugs for!

Database paradigms are changing, and it is interesting to see Cloudflare introducing Workers KV a key-value store, that is eventually consistent and highly distributed (at their global …

Analyzing Amazon Aurora Slow Logs with pt-query-digest

In this blog post we shall discuss how you can analyze slow query logs from Amazon Aurora for MySQL, (referred to as Amazon Aurora in the remaining blog). The tools and techniques explained here apply to the other MySQL compatible services available under Amazon Aurora. However, we’ll focus specially on analyzing slow logs from Amazon Aurora version 2 (MySQL 5.7 compatible) using pt-query-digest. We believe there is a bug in Aurora where it logs really big numbers for query execution and lock times for otherwise really fast queries.

So, the main steps we need are:

  1. Enable slow query logging on your Amazon Aurora DB parameter group, apply the change when appropriate.
  2. Download the slow log(s) that …

Amazon Web Services (AWS) Aurora is one of the most popular cloud-based RDBMS solutions. The main reason for Aurora’s success is because it’s based on InnoDB storage engine.

In this session, we will talk about how you can efficiently plan for migration to Aurora using Terraform and Percona products and solutions. We will share our Terraform code for launching AWS Aurora clusters, look at tricks for checking data consistency, verify migration paths and effectively monitor the environment using PMM.

When Should I Use Amazon Aurora and When Should I use RDS MySQL?

Now that Database-as-a-service (DBaaS) is in high demand, there is one question regarding AWS services that cannot always be answered easily : When should I use Aurora and when RDS MySQL?

DBaaS cloud services allow users to use databases without configuring physical hardware and infrastructure, and without installing software. I’m not sure if there is a straightforward answer, but when trying to find out which solution best fits an organization there are multiple factors that should be taken into consideration. These may be performance, high availability, operational cost, management, capacity planning, scalability, security, monitoring, etc.

There are also cases where although the workload and operational needs seem to best fit to one solution, there are other limiting factors which may be blockers (or at least need special handling).

In this blog post, I will try to provide some general rules …

How to Set Up Replication Between AWS Aurora and an External MySQL Instance

Amazon RDS Aurora (MySQL) provides its own low latency replication. Nevertheless, there are cases where it can be beneficial to set up replication from Aurora to an external MySQL server, as Amazon RDS Aurora is based on MySQL and supports native MySQL replication. Here are some examples of when replicating from Amazon RDS Aurora to an external MySQL server can make good sense:

  • Replicating to another cloud or datacenter (for added redundancy)
  • Need to use an independent reporting slave
  • Need to have an additional physical backup
  • Need to use another MySQL flavor or fork
  • Need to failover to another cloud and back

In this blog post I will share simple step by step instructions on how to do it.

Steps to setup MySQL replication from AWS RDS Aurora to MySQL server

  1. Enable binary logs in the option group in Aurora (Binlog format = mixed). This will …

This Week in Data with Colin Charles 42: Security Focus on Redis and Docker a Timely Reminder to Stay Alert

Join Percona Chief Evangelist Colin Charles as he covers happenings, gives pointers and provides musings on the open source database community.

Much of last week, there was a lot of talk around this article: New research shows 75% of ‘open’ Redis servers infected. It turns out, it helps that one should always read beyond the headlines because they tend to be more sensationalist than you would expect. From the author of Redis, I highly recommend reading Clarifications on the Incapsula Redis security report, because it turns out that in this case, it is beyond the headline. The content is also suspect. Antirez had to write this to help the press (we totally need to help keep reportage accurate).

Not to depart from the Redis world just yet, but …

This Week in Data with Colin Charles 39: a valuable time spent at rootconf.in

Join Percona Chief Evangelist Colin Charles as he covers happenings, gives pointers and provides musings on the open source database community.

rootconf.in 2018 just ended, and it was very enjoyable to be in Bangalore for the conference. The audience was large, the conversations were great, and overall I think this is a rather important conference if you’re into the “DevOps” movement (or are a sysadmin!). From the data store world, Oracle MySQL was a sponsor, as was MyDBOPS (blog), and Elastic. There were plenty more, including Digital Ocean/GoJek/Walmart Labs — many MySQL users.

I took a handful of pictures with people, and here are some of the MyDBOPS team and myself.  They have over 20 …
