Percona XtraDB Cluster 5.5.30-23.7.4 for MySQL now available

Percona is glad to announce the release of Percona XtraDB Cluster 5.5.30-23.7.4 for MySQL on April 17, 2013. Binaries are available from the downloads area or from our software repositories.

New Features:

  • Percona XtraDB Cluster has implemented initial implementation of weighted quorum. Weight for node can be assigned via pc.weight option in the wsrep_provider_options variable. Accepted values are in the range [0, 255] (inclusive). Quorum is computed using weighted sum over group members.

Running Percona XtraDB Cluster in a Sandbox on Ubuntu

I wanted to do some experimentation with Percona XtraDB Cluster (Galera) and I didn't want to use virtual machines. I'm already using MySQL Sandbox for many other projects so that's the natural choice.

I've downloaded the tarball for Percona XtraDB Cluster 5.5.29 and I've extracted it to ~/opt/mysql/5.5.29-pxc.

Then I've installed 3 nodes:
make_sandbox 5.5.29-pxc -- --sandbox_port 4551 \
--sandbox_directory msb_5_5_29-pxc01 

make_sandbox 5.5.29-pxc -- --sandbox_port 4552 \
--sandbox_directory msb_5_5_29-pxc02 

make_sandbox 5.5.29-pxc -- --sandbox_port 4553 \
--sandbox_directory msb_5_5_29-pxc03 

But when I try to start a node this error happens:
130327 14:21:03 [Note] WSREP: wsrep_load(): loading provider library '/home/dvee
den/mysql/5.5.29-pxc/lib/libgalera_smm.so'

Percona MySQL University coming to Toronto this Friday!

Percona CEO Peter Zaitsev leads a track at Percona MySQL University in Raleigh, N.C. on Jan. 29, 2013.

Percona MySQL University, Toronto is taking place this Friday and I’m very excited about this event because it is a special opportunity to fit a phenomenal number of specific and focused MySQL technical talks all into one day, for free.

Over the course of the day we will cover some of the hottest topics in the MySQL space. There will be talks covering topics like MySQL 5.6, MySQL in the Cloud and High Availability for MySQL, as well as Percona XtraDB Cluster for MySQL. We have talks planned for nearly every …

Accessing Percona XtraDB Cluster nodes in parallel from PHP using MySQL asynchronous queries

Accessing Percona XtraDB Cluster nodes in parallel with MySQL asynchronous calls

This post is followup to Peter’s recent post, “Investigating MySQL Replication Latency in Percona XtraDB Cluster,” in which a question was raised as to whether we can measure latency to all nodes at the same time. It is an interesting question: If we have N nodes, can we send queries to nodes to be executed in parallel?

To answer it, I decided to try a new asynchronous call to send a query to MySQL using a new MySQLnd driver for PHP. In this post I’ll only show how to make these calls, and in following posts how to measure latency to all nodes.


PHP does not provide …

Investigating MySQL Replication Latency in Percona XtraDB Cluster

Investigating MySQL Replication Latency in Percona XtraDB Cluster

I was curious to check how Percona XtraDB Cluster behaves when it comes to MySQL replication latency — or better yet, call it data propagation latency. It was interesting to see whenever I can get stale data reads from other cluster nodes after write performed to some specific node. To test it I wrote quite a simple script (you can find it in the end of the post) which connects to one node in the cluster, performs an update and then immediately does the read from second node. If the data has been already propagated — good, if not we’ll continue to retry reads until it finally propagates, and then measure the latency. This is used to see whenever application …

Announcing Percona XtraDB Cluster 5.5.29-23.7.1

Percona is glad to announce the release of Percona XtraDB Cluster on January 30th, 2013. Binaries are available from downloads area or from our software repositories.

Bugs fixed:

  • In some cases when node is recovered variable threads_running would become huge. Bug fixed #1040108 (Teemu Ollakka).
  • Variable wsrep_defaults_file would be set up to the value in the last configuration file read. Bug fixed by keeping the value found in the top configuration file. Bug fixed …

Percona XtraDB Cluster: SElinux is not always the culprit !

If you are using SElinux, you should know that it’s advised to disable it to avoid issue with PXC. Generally the communication between your nodes doesn’t work properly and a node having SElinux enabled won’t be able to join the cluster.

So when a node doesn’t join the cluster where it should, my first reflex is to have a look at audit.log. But recently I faced another problem: the node joined the cluster but SST failed (whatever which method was used, discarding skip).

I checked SElinux and it was of course disabled, then I add some debug information in the SST script but it seemed that the script was never launched. And this time the culprit is called : AppArmor !

Percona doesn’t provide any AppArmor profile for PXC, but it seems that on this server (Ubuntu TLS), a previous version of MySQL was installed and then removed but the AppArmor profile was still present.

So if you use apparmor (or if you …

Percona XtraDB Cluster (PXC): what about GRA_*.log files ?

How easy is it to identify and debug Percona XtraDB Cluster replication problem ?

If you are using PXC, you may have already seen in your datadirectory several log files starting with GRA_

Those files correspond to a replication failure. That means the slave thread was not able to apply one transaction. For each of those file, a corresponding warning or error message is present in the mysql error log file.

Those error can also be false positive like a bad DDL statement (DROP a table that doesn’t exists for example) and therefore nothing to worry about. However it’s always recommended to understand what’s is happening.

As the GRA files contain binlog events in ROW format representing the failed transaction this post explains how to proceed.

The first step to be able to analyze your GRA files is to add a binlog header to the file.
You can download one here : …
