Automate MySQL Partitioning using events and procedures


The purpose of this post if to show how you can automate the creation and pruning of partitioned tables. If you want to read about partitioning I recommend reading our manual.

In short partitioning makes it possible to spread your individual tables across a file system according to the partition rules you specify.

Reasons for partition your tables might be:
- Insert performance, smaller index trees for stable insert throughput.
- Select performance, only read data from selected (aka partitioning pruning) partitions.
- Delete performance, drop partitioning is must quicker than doing range deletes of old data.

Partitioning definitions is part for the CREATE/ALTER table statements, in …

Percona Live Europe Presents: Test Like a Boss

My first talk is a tutorial Testing like a boss: Deploy and Test Complex Topologies With a Single Command, scheduled at Percona Live Europe in Amsterdam on September 30th at 13:30.

My second talk is Amazing sandboxes with dbdeployer scheduled on October 1st at 11:00. It is the same topic as the tutorial, but covers a narrow set of features, all in the *amazing* category.

The tutorial introduces a challenging topic, because when people hear testing, they imagine a troop of monkeys fiddling with a keyboard and a mouse, endlessly repeating a boring task. What I want to show is that testing is a creative activity and, with the right tools and mindset, it could be exciting and rewarding. During my work as a quality assurance engineer, I have always seen a boring task as an opportunity to automate. …

Are your Database Backups Good Enough?

In the last few years there have been several examples of major service problems affecting businesses data: outages causing data inconsistencies; unavailability or data loss, and worldwide cyberattacks encrypting your files and asking for a ransom.

Database-related incidents are a very common industry issue- even if the root cause is not the database system itself. No matter if your main relational system is MySQL, MariaDB, PostgresQL or AWS Aurora -there will be a time where you will need to make use of backups to recover to a previous state. And when that happens it will be the worst time to realize that your backup system hadn’t been working for months, or testing for the first time a cluster-wide recovery.

Forget about the backups, it is all about recovery!

Let me be 100% clear: the question is not IF data …

Meet Galera Cluster at Percona Live Europe 2019 (Amsterdam)

We (Codership, the original and continued developers and experts of Galera Cluster) participated in Austin 2019, and so it would have seemed remiss if we did not also show up at the Percona Live Open Source Database Conference Europe 2019 (that was a mouthful!) happening in Amsterdam September 30 – October 2 2019. We have a booth in the expo hall at the Hilton Amsterdam Schipol Airport, so come drop by and say hello!

 

While we do not have any talks accepted in the main program, we do have a tutorial that involves using Galera Cluster and MariaDB Server on the first day at 9am by Colin Charles.  View the whole …

Running Galera Cluster on Microsoft Azure and comparing it to their hosted services (EMEA and USA webinar)

Do you want to run Galera Cluster in the Microsoft cloud? Why not learn to setup a 3-node Galera Cluster using Microsoft Azure Compute Virtual Machines, and run it yourself. In this webinar, we will cover the steps to do this, with a demonstration of how easy it is for you to do.

In addition, we will cover why you may want to run a 3-node (or more) Galera Cluster (active-active multi-master clusters) instead of (or in addition to) using Azure Database for MySQL or MariaDB. We will also cover cost comparisons. 

Join us and learn about storage options, backup & recovery, as well as monitoring & metrics options for the “roll your own Galera Cluster” in Azure.

The MySQL High Availability Landscape and where Galera Cluster fits in (USA and EMEA Webinar)

The MySQL Server High Availability landscape provides with a slew of tools to help you ensure that your databases keep humming. Such tools are Galera Cluster, however, it is worth looking at semi-synchronous replication with failover tools, and also the usual leader-follower asynchronous replication. Today more workloads are moving to the cloud, and what failover options do you get with Amazon RDS for MySQL or even Aurora? What about the newfangled group replication and InnoDB Cluster? And let us not forget that Galera Cluster has spawned branches too!

Join Codership, the developers and experts of Galera Cluster,  as we discuss where Galera Cluster fits in and how to get best out of it.
