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

MySQL Cluster – Java Connector / Bindings

While working with MySQL Cluster, i was looking for a monitoring framework for the cluster.

i came across a library @ https://launchpad.net/ndb-bindings – which had java and other connectors to NDB, the library was a wrapper of the existing C++ NDB Api.

This library allowed me to connect to the management node , get the state of the cluster and get real time notifications about heartbeat misses/node disconnections.

The library error-ed out on some conditions, with a small fix, it can work with MySQL Cluster 7.3.

9 DevOps Tips for Going in Production with Galera Cluster for MySQL - Webinar Replay & Slides

November 14, 2014 By Severalnines

Thanks to everyone who attended and participated in this week's webinar on '9 DevOps Tips for Going in Production with Galera Cluster for MySQL'. If you missed the sessions or would like to watch the webinar again & browse through the slides, they are now available online.

 

In this webinar, Severalnines CTO Johan Andersson discussed 9 key aspects to consider before taking Galera Cluster for MySQL into production:

  • 101 Sanity Check
  • Operating System
  • Backup Strategies
  • Galera Recovery
  • Query Performance
  • Schema changes
  • Security / Encryption
  • Reporting
  • Protecting from Disasters

Preliminary MySQL Cluster benchmark results on POWER8

Yesterday, I got the basics going for MySQL Cluster on POWER. Today, I finished up a couple more patches to improve performance and ran some benchmarks.

This is on a 3.7Ghz POWER8 machine with non-balanced memory (only 2 of the 4 NUMA nodes have memory, so we have less total memory bandwidth than we could have, plus I’m going to bind ndbmtd to the CPUs in these NUMA nodes)

With a setup of a single replica and two data nodes on the one machine (each bound to a specific NUMA node), running the flexAsync benchmark on MySQL Cluster 7.3.7, I could get around:

  • 3.2 million reads/sec
  • 2.6 million deletes/sec
  • 2.4 million updates/sec
  • 2.4 million inserts/sec.

So, that’s at least in the right ballpark for a first go.

(I’m running this on a big endian host …

MySQL Cluster on POWER8

So, I’ve written previously on MySQL on POWER, and today is a quick bit of news about MySQL Cluster on POWER – specifically MySQL Cluster 7.3.7.

I ran into three main issues in getting some flexAsync benchmark results. One of them was the fact that I wanted to do this in the middle of all the POWER8 machines I usually use moving buildings (hard to run benchmarks when computers are packed up in boxes on a truck).

The next issue was that ndbmtd (the multi-threaded data node) needs memory barriers for the magic message passing stuff between threads. So, that’s pretty easy (about an eight line patch).

The next issue was in the results from flexAsync, it turns out 32bit math is a bad idea with results from my POWER8 box.

My preliminary performance numbers are fairly promising (actually… what is the world record for a single machine and NDB these days? Single data node?). I think there’s a bit more low …

Active-Active (Multi-Master) Replication

MySQL Cluster allows bi-directional replication between two (or more) clusters. Replication within each cluster is synchronous but between clusters it is asynchronous which means …
