We might have had one of our largest, most well attended webinars in recent times, for both EMEA and North American timezones, and we thank you for attending. We had many good questions, and we realise that this is a popular topic, so expect to get more blog posts around this. It also helps us drive the development of Galera Manager further, to know what you want (a new release, is just around the corner).
The video recording of the webinar is available and we encourage you to take a gander.
We did demo a 9-node Galera Cluster running across San Francisco, London and Singapore, and also discussed latency for local nodes, a local Galera Cluster, as well as what penalty you …[Read more]
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]
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]
