MySQL Shell Plugins: check (part 3)

What is great with MySQL Shell Plugins, it’s that it provides you an infinite amount of possibilities. While I was writing the part I and part II of the check plugin, I realized I could extend it event more.

The new methods I added to the plugin are especially useful when you are considering to use MySQL InnoDB Cluster in Multi-Primary mode, but not only

Let’s have a look at these new methods:

These 4 new methods are targeting large queries or large transactions. It’s also possible to get the eventual hot spots.

Let’s see the first two that are more basic in action:

The first method …

MySQL Shell Plugins: check (part 2)

In the first part of this article related to the check plugin, we discovered information retrieved from the binary logs. This part, is about what Performance_Schema and SYS can provide us about the queries hitting the MySQL database.

Currently, 3 methods are available:

  • getSlowerQuery()
  • getQueryTempDisk()
  • getFullTableScanQuery()

The method’s name should be self explaining.

This is an overview of the parameters for each methods:

ext.check.getSlowQuery()ext.check.getQueryTempDisk()ext.check.getFullTableScanQuery()

Some methods allow a select parameter if only SELECT statements should be returned.

When only one query is returned (default), it’s also possible to …

MySQL Shell Plugins: check

This blog was initially referring to the audit plugin, but I renamed it as check plugin to be more compatible with all the current and future methods included in it.

As you may know, it’s now possible to create your own plugins for MySQL Shell. See the following posts:

MySQL: Check who’s trying to access data they should not

To illustrate how easy it’s to see who’s trying to access data they have not been granted for, we will first create a schema with two tables:

mysql> create database mydata;
mysql> use mydata
mysql> create table table1 (id int auto_increment primary key, 
              name varchar(20), something varchar(20));
mysql> create table table2 (id int auto_increment primary key, 
              name varchar(20), something varchar(20));

Now, let’s create a user :

mysql> create user myuser identified by 'mypassword';

And as it’s always good to talk about SQL ROLES, let’s define 3 roles for our user:

  • myrole1: user has access to both tables in their entirety, reads and writes
  • myrole2: user has access only to `table2`, reads and writes
  • myrole3: user has only access to the column `name`of `table1` …

Using MySQL Community Repository with OL 8/RHEL 8/CentOS 8

MySQL 8.0 is now part of RedHat Enterprise 8 and other distros based on it like CentOS and Oracle Linux.. This is a very good thing !

However if for any reason you want to use the latest version of MySQL from the Community Repository, you may encounter some frustration if you are not familiar with the new way the package manager works.

Let’s start by verifying our system:

LSB Version:    :core-4.1-amd64:core-4.1-noarch
Distributor ID:    OracleServer
Description:    Oracle Linux Server release 8.0
Release:    8.0
Codename:    n/a

We can see that we are on Oracle Linux 8.0. So now let’s try to install MySQL Server:

[root@localhost ~]# dnf install mysql-server
Last metadata expiration check: 0:08:15 ago on Sat 02 Nov 2019 09:54:07 AM UTC.
Dependencies resolved.

Setup 2 MySQL InnoDB Clusters on 2 DCs and link them for DR

This article is an update of a previous post explaining how to setup a second cluster on a second data center to be used as disaster recovery (or to run some off site queries, like long reports, etc..).

This new article covers also the CLONE plugin. Before you ask, CLONE plugin and Replication Channel Based Filters are only available in MySQL 8.0 ! It’s time to upgrade, MySQL 8 is Great !

Also, for DR only, a single MySQL instance acting as asynchronous replica is enough. But if for any reason you want to also have a HA cluster in the second data …

MySQL & InnoDB Disk Space

Yesterday, Bhuvanesh published an article about how to verify the difference between allocated diskspace for a tablespace and the the data in it.

I commented with an old post explaining how to get some similar info only using SQL in case you don’t have filesystem access.

And finally, my friend Bill Karwin, commented how this info is not always accurate. Which, of course, I agree with.

This is why, I checked …

How to integrate ProxySQL in MySQL InnoDB Cluster

MySQL InnoDB Cluster is the most easy and integrated High Availability solution for MySQL.

The solution is composed of:

  • MySQL Server
  • MySQL Group Replication Plugin
  • MySQL Clone Plugin
  • MySQL Router
  • MySQL Shell

All those components are developed and tested together to provide the easiest and best experience to the MySQL users.

As the MySQL Router is a TCP Level 4 router (like HA Proxy), some users requiring a more “intelligent” proxy having other extra features like caching, read/write splitting in relation with the user or SQL, firewall, … may be interested in using ProxySQL… and this is a good choice !

ProxySQL / MySQL Router in OSI Model

However, even is ProxySQL supports MysQL Group Replication, for …

Fun with Bugs #89 - On MySQL Bug Reports I am Subscribed to, Part XXIII

I have to celebrate the anniversary of my last day in Oracle (that was 7 years ago!) somehow, and I think writing yet another blog post about Oracle MySQL bugs is a good way to do this. I am actually surprised (and happy) that public bugs database is still alive, maintained and considered important in Oracle, and I know who in Oracle was working hard all these years for this to happen!

In my previous post in this series I've stopped on Bug #95954 and had not completed review of interesting MySQL bug reports that I've subscribed to in June 2019. So, below I start with the next bug in my list, complete review for June and cover some bugs reported in July. There were many.
