MySQL Support Engineer's Chronicles, Issue #1

I have a habit to keep a log of everything I work on (or even just read about while working) every day. It's just a plain text file, with date labels, where most lines are URLs of issues and bugs I contributed to somehow, and my comments on what I did and why. But there are also code fragments, texts, copy-pasted outputs and links to interesting sites, articles and documentation.

Some of lines from this log I post on Facebook separately as I add them, these are mostly related to MySQL bugs and other things that annoy me. I know that some of my Facebook friends actually do not like this kind of posts at all... When I used LiveJornal actively, I've posted digests of my log from time to time (you can check what was there if you read Russian). But that digests …

Galera Error Failed to Report Last Committed (Interrupted System Call)

In this blog, we’ll discuss the ramifications of the Galera Error Failed to Report Last Committed (Interrupted System Call).

I have recently seen this error with Percona XtraDB Cluster (or Galera):

[Warning] WSREP: Failed to report last committed 549684236, -4 (Interrupted system call)

It was posted in launchpad as a bug in 2013: https://bugs.launchpad.net/percona-xtradb-cluster/+bug/1434646

My colleague Przemek replied, and explained it as:

Reporting the last committed transaction is just a part of the certification index purge process. In case it fails for some reason (it occasionally does), the cert index purge may be a little delayed. But it does not mean the transaction was not applied successfully. This is a warning after all.

If we look up this error in the source code, we realize …

MySQL High Availability: The Road Ahead for Percona and XtraDB Cluster

This blog post discusses what is going on in the MySQL high availability market, and what Percona’s plans are for helping customers with high availability solutions.

One thing I like to tell people is that you shouldn’t view Percona as a “software” company, but as a “solution” company. Our goal has always been to provide the best solution that meets each customer’s situation, rather than push our own software, regardless of whether it is the best fit or not. As a result, we have customers running all kinds of MySQL “flavors”: MySQL, MariaDB, Percona Server, Amazon RDS and Google Cloud SQL. We’re happy to help customers be successful with the technology of their choice, and advise them on alternatives when we see a better fit.

One area where I …

Building MariaDB 10.1.x and Galera from Source for Multiple Node Cluster Testing Setup

My Facebook followers probably noted that I quit from Percona some time ago and work for MariaDB since March 1, 2016. I changed the company, but neither the job role (I am still a Support Engineer), nor the approach to do my job. I still prefer to test everything I suggest to customers and I usually use software I build from source myself for these tests.

While I try to avoid all kinds of clusters as much as possible for 15 years or so already (it does not matter if it's Oracle RAC, MySQL Cluster or Percona XtraDB Cluster, all of them), it's really hard to avoid Galera clusters while working for MariaDB. One …

Galera Cluster and Docker Swarm

This blogpost extends last one. In the last blogpost, we had a look into Docker Network and how it makes the communication between the containers (over multiple hosts) easier. Of course we used Galera for that :)

In this blogpost we are going to use Docker Swarm to bootstrap a Galera Cluster.

Why using Docker Swarm?

Docker Swarm is (simplified) a proxy. So we've got one accesspoint to manage multiple hosts. (The swarm manage service will run on 172.17.152.11:2376). We also use Docker Swarm to abstract from the nodes. As we want the cluster to be running but we don't want to define explicitly where to run them. (Think about a 3-node-cluster on Docker Swarm with 100 nodes.)

Let us point the local docker to Docker Swarm:

export DOCKER_HOST=tcp://172.17.152.11:2376

We still got …
