Load Balancing for MySQL with HAProxy - Webinar Replay in English & French

January 30, 2015 By Severalnines

In this joint webinar series with our friends from the HAProxy team, we covered the concepts around the popular open-source HAProxy load balancer, and demonstrated how to use it with SQL-based database clusters. We also discussed HA strategies for HAProxy with Keepalived and Virtual IP. 

 

Thanks to everyone who participated in these two sessions this week! Please see below for details on next week’s follow up session 'Performance Tuning for HAProxy & MySQL'.

 

The topics covered this week included: 

  • What is HAProxy?
  • SQL Load balancing for MySQL
  • Failure detection using MySQL health checks
  • High Availability with Keepalived and Virtual IP
  • Use cases: MySQL/MariaDB Galera Cluster, MySQL NDB …

MySQL High Availability and Disaster Recovery

Users seeking high availability, disaster recovery and zero downtime maintenance operation for business-critical MySQL applications face confusing choices. Is multi-master or master/slave clustering better? What about synchronous versus asynchronous replication? Using a plain vanilla, stock MySQL or a modified version of it? Which of these choices are right for data-driven businesses that

MySQL Cluster 7.4.3 RELEASE CANDIDATE now available

Oracle have just made availble the Release Candidate for MySQL Cluster 7.4 (MySQL Cluster 7.4.3) – it can be downloaded from the development release tab here. Note that this is not a GA release and so we wouldn’t recommend using it in production.

The delta between this RC and the 7.4.2 DMR can be viewed in the MySQL Cluster 7.4.3 Release Notes

There are three main focus areas for this RC and the purpose of this post is to briefly introduce them:

  • Active-Active (Multi-Master) Replication
  • Performance
  • Operational improvements (speeding up of restarts; enhanced memory …

Multi-source Replication with Galera Cluster for MySQL

November 20, 2014 By Severalnines

Multi-source replication means that one server can have multiple masters from which it replicates. Why multi-source? One good reason is to consolidate databases (e.g. merge your shards) for analytical reporting or as a centralized backup server. MariaDB 10 already has this feature, and MySQL 5.7 will also support it. 

It is possible to set up your Galera Cluster as an aggregator of your masters in a multi-source replication setup, we’ll walk you through the steps in this blog. Note that the howto is for Galera Cluster for MySQL (Codership) and Percona XtraDB Cluster. In a separate post, we’ll show you how to configure MariaDB Cluster 10 instead. If you would like to use MySQL Cluster (NDB) as aggregator, then check out this blog.

MySQL Replication: ‘Got fatal error 1236′ causes and cures

MySQL replication is a core process for maintaining multiple copies of data – and replication is a very important aspect in database administration. In order to synchronize data between master and slaves you need to make sure that data transfers smoothly, and to do so you need to act promptly regarding replication errors to continue data synchronization. Here on the Percona Support team, we often help customers with replication broken-related issues. In this post I’ll highlight the top most critical replication error code 1236 along with the causes and cure. MySQL replication error “Got fatal error 1236” can be triggered by multiple reasons and I will try to cover all of them.

Replicating from MySQL to Amazon Redshift

Continuent is delighted to announce an exciting Continuent Tungsten feature addition for MySQL users: replication in real-time from MySQL into Amazon RedShift.  

In this webinar-on-demand we survey Continuent Tungsten capabilities for data warehouse loading, then zero in on practical details of setting up replication from MySQL into RedShift.  We cover:

Upgrade MySQL to a new version with a fresh installation & use shell scripts and mysqldump to reload your data

There are several ways to upgrade MySQL. In this post, we will use a combination of shell scripts and the mysqldump application to export our MySQL data, and then re-import it back into the upgraded version of MySQL.

In this example, we will be doing a minor version upgrade. We will be going from 5.6.17 to 5.6.19. This method may not work if you are upgrading from one major release to another – from 5.1 to 5.5, or 5.5 to 5.6. You will want to check each version and review the new features/functions and also what features/functions have been deprecated. We are also assuming that no one will be using the database during the time it takes for us to do the upgrade.

If you want to upgrade from a …

Monitoring MySQL flow control in Percona XtraDB Cluster 5.6

Monitoring flow control in a Galera cluster is very important. If you do not, you will not understand why writes may sometimes be stalled. Percona XtraDB Cluster 5.6 provides 2 status variables for such monitoring: wsrep_flow_control_paused and wsrep_flow_control_paused_ns. Which one should you use?

What is flow control?

Flow control does not exist with regular MySQL replication, but only with Galera replication. It is simply the mechanism nodes are using when they are not able to keep up with the write load: to keep replication synchronous, the node that is starting to lag instructs the other nodes that writes should be paused for some time so it does not get too far behind.

If you are not familiar with this notion, you should read this …
