It is with extreme delight and a big smile on our face that we share the news that a new major MySQL release has been declared Generally Available (GA). The road to MySQL 8 was pretty eventful, sometimes painful and sometimes hard, always challenging, but nonetheless a great ride and an extremely rewarding journey for the engineers that have worked on it.…
Continuent is very pleased and excited to announce that the new Tungsten Clustering 6.0 and Tungsten Replicator 6.0 are now available for download by our customers. The 6.0 release is the culmination of over a years work within our clustering product in order to improve the functionality and manageability of what we now call our ‘Multimaster Clustering’ solution. This is the replacement for what we called the multi-site, multi-master (MSMM) clustering functionality in earlier releases. The multimaster clustering allows for multiple clusters, in multiple locations, to be linked together into a single composite cluster. Because it’s a composite cluster, you gain all of the functionality that’s already available in a cluster, such as:
- High availability
- Automated recovery
- Read-write split
- Maintenance without downtime
But it’s now applied to the …[Read more]
In this blog post, we’ll look at how to navigate some of the complexities of multi-source GTID replication.
GTID replication is often a real challenge for DBAs, especially if this has to do with multi-source GTID replication. A while back, I came across a really interesting customer environment with shards where multi-master, multi-source, multi-threaded MySQL 5.6 MIXED replication was active. This is a highly complex environment that has both pros and cons, introducing risks as a trade-off for specific customer requirements.
This is the set up of part of this environment:
I started looking into this setup when a statement broke
Replication broke due to a statement executed on a schema that
was not present on
db10. This also …

Although it feels like it was only yesterday that Oracle released version 5.7 of their acclaimed MySQL Community Server, version 8 is already available as a development milestone release (DMR). No, you didn’t sleep through a bunch of releases; MySQL is jumping several versions in its numbering due to 6.0 being dropped and 7.0 being reserved for the clustering version of MySQL. This new version boasts numerous changes (and bug fixes), one of the most exciting of which are replication enhancements. This blog will provide an overview of the new replication enhancements, including new replication timestamps, additional information reported by performance schema tables, and how replication delay has been reduced by updating the relationship between replication threads to make them more efficient.
New Replication Timestamps
The most common task when managing a …[Read more]
