The first tutorial supplementing the MySQL Connector/NET Developer Guide showed you how to connect and run static INSERT statement. It was a barebones PowerShell script with the MySQL Connector. This post shows you how to run a PowerShell script that uses a dynamic form to gather the MySQL credentials and then run a static query. Below is the MySQL Credentials form.

You enter the correct user name, password, hostname (or IP address), port, and database, like this:

Here’s the complete code for this staticQuery.ps1 PowerShell script:

# Add libraries for form components. …

It was interesting to note that the MySQL Connector/NET Developer Guide doesn’t have any instructions for connecting to the MySQL database from Microsoft Powershell. I thought it would be helpful to write a couple demonstrations scripts, especially when a quick search didn’t find a set of easy to follow samples.

The connection process to MySQL with Powershell is easiest with a non-query, so I created a db_connect table into which I could write a row of data:

CREATE TABLE db_connect
, version        VARCHAR(10)
, user           VARCHAR(24)
, db_name        VARCHAR(10));

The following insert.ps1 PowerShell script connects to the MySQL database, and inserts one row into the db_connect table:

# Connect to the libaray …

Yearly Reminder: DDLs That Fail to Propagate May Cause Percona XtraDB Cluster Inconsistencies

Apologies for the silly title, but the issue is a real one, even though it is not a new thing. Schema upgrades are not an ordinary operation in Galera. For the subject at hand, the bottom line is: under the default Total Order Isolation (TOI) method, “the cluster replicates the schema change query as a statement before its execution.” What this means in practice is that a DDL issued in one node is replicated to other nodes in the cluster before it is even executed in the source node, let alone completed successfully.

As a result of this, it may fail in one node and be successful in another, and this without raising loud alerts or stopping nodes to protect against data inconsistency. This is not a bug in itself but rather a compromise of design. With new changes in MySQL and the …

MySQL Shell 8.0.24 Dump now supports array arguments in non-interactive mode

Recently I posted an article on how to deal with arrays when trying to use MySQL Shell Dump Utility in command line.

Of course, this proposed solution was a workaround for MySQL Shell <= 8.0.23. The new version of MySQL Shell 8.0.24 supports now arrays \o/ !

So if we take the same example of the previous post, we can now use the following syntax:

$ mysqlsh root@localhost -- util dump-instance /tmp/dump \
    --excludeSchemas=["mysql_innodb_cluster_metadata","fred_test"] \
    --threads=8 --showProgress

Please mind that lack of <space> between the elements of the array. If you …

Long Live Backups! The Role of Recovery in a Continuous MySQL Environment

The new role of recovery (RPO and RTO) in a continuous, highly available MySQL environment?


After downloading and installing MySQL 8.0.24 yesterday, I opened a command shell. In the command shell, I could access the MySQL Shell (mysqlsh.exe) but not the MySQL Client (mysql.exe). Typing in the following:


It returned:

'mysql' is not recognized as an internal or external command,
operable program or batch file.

The MySQL Client (mysql.exe) was installed because MySQL Workbench relies on it. However, the MySQL Microsoft Software Installer (MSI) does not put the mysql.exe file’s directory in the common Windows %PATH% environment variable. You can find the required %PATH% directory variable by opening the File Manager and searching for the mysql.exe file.

You should return several directories and programs but the directory you want is:

C:\Program …

Accessing MySQL NDB Cluster Database From MySQL Connector/Python

In this post, we will see how to access database and its objects in MySQL NDB Cluster from Connector/python program. I assume that the reader has some basic understanding of python language and MySQL NDB Cluster.
Let’s create a MySQL NDB Cluster with the following environment:

  • MySQL NDB Cluster version (Latest GA version)
  • 1 Management node
  • 4 Data nodes
  • 1 Mysqld server
  • Configuration slots for up to 4 additional API nodes
  • Connector/Python version (Latest GA version)

Note: Python software must be installed on the same host where we are planning to install MySQL Connector/Python.

MySQL NDB Cluster Architecture:
Let’s look at the MySQL NDB Cluster architecture.
