MySQL Fabric: Musings on Release 1.4.3

As you might have noticed in the press release, we just released MySQL Utilities 1.4.3, containing MySQL Fabric, as a General Availability (GA) release. This concludes the first chapter of the MySQL Fabric story.

It all started with the idea that it should be as easy to manage and setup a distributed deployments with MySQL servers as it is to manage the MySQL servers themselves. We also noted that some of the features that were most interesting were sharding and high-availability. Since we also recognized that every user had different needs and needed to customize the solution, we set of to create a framework that would support sharding and high-availability, but also other solutions.

With the release of 1.4.3, we have a range of features that are now available to the community, and all under an open source license and wrapped in an …

MySQL Fabric: Server Properties & Scaling out reads

MySQL Replication is a well-known approach to providing high-availability and scaling out read-only operations (i.e. transactions) as well. In order to make it easy to exploit this scalability axis, we have extended both Fabric and the connectors' interface so that an application can express its willingness to execute a read-only operation and have its request redirected to the server that is most capable of handling it.

In this post, we are going to describe how we can use Fabric and the connector python to scale out read-only operations. We need to introduce some concepts first though.

Fabric organizes the servers in high-availability groups, uses the standard MySQL Replication to synchronize the servers which can be classified according to its status, mode and weight. The blog post MySQL Fabric …

Benchmark: SimpleHTTPServer vs pyclustercheck (twisted implementation)

Github user Adrianlzt provided a python-twisted alternative version of pyclustercheck per discussion on issue 7.

Due to sporadic performance issues noted with the original implementation in SimpleHTTPserver, the benchmarks which I’ve included as part of the project on github use mutli-mechanize library,

  • cache time 1 sec
  • 2 x 100 thread pools
  • 60s ramp up time
  • 600s total duration
  • testing simulated node fail (always returns 503, rechecks mysql node on cache expiry)
  • AMD FX(tm)-8350 Eight-Core Processor
  • Intel 330 SSD
  • local loop back test (127.0.0.1)

The SimpleHTTPServer instance faired as follows:

Writing a Fault-tolerant Database Application using MySQL Fabric - MySQL Fabric 1.4.2 Release Candidate

If we want to run the application presented in "Writing a Fault-tolerant Database Application using MySQL Fabric" with MySQL Fabric 1.4.2 Release Candidate, some changes to the application are required. In the previous post, we used MySQL Fabric 1.4.0 Alpha and many changes have been made since this version. We can find an updated version of the application here:

Recall that the application creates a simple database, a high availability group, registers the MySQL Servers into Fabric and runs a thread that mimics a client and another one that periodically executes a switch …

New! MySQL Utilities release-1.4.2-RC

The MySQL Utilities Team is pleased to announce the latest release candidate (RC) release of MySQL Utilities. This release includes a number of improvements for useabilty, stability, and a few enhancements. A complete list of all improvements can be found in our release_notes.

New Utilities!
We have also included two new utilities.

  • The mysqlrplsync utility was added, which checks data consistency between servers in a replicated setup. 
  • The mysqlrplms utility was added, which provides round-robin multi-source replication (a slave server continually cycles through multiple masters in order to store a consolidated data set).

MySQL Fabric 1.4.2 Released

As you saw in the press release, MySQL Fabric 1.4.2 is now released! If you're interested in learning more about MySQL Fabric, there is a session April 3, 2014 11:10–12pm titled Sharding and Scale-out using MySQL Fabric in Ballroom G.

MySQL Fabric is a relatively new project in the MySQL ecosystem and it focuses on building a framework for working with large deployments of MySQL Servers. The architecture of MySQL Fabric is such that it allows extensions to be added and the first two extensions that we added were support for high-availability using High-Availability groups (HA groups) and sharding to manage very large databases. The first version of sharding have hash and range sharding implemented as well as …

Snippet: Fetching results after calling stored procedures using MySQL Connector/Python

Problem

Using MySQL Connector/Python, you are calling a stored procedure which is also selecting data and you would like to fetch the rows of the result.

Solution

For this example we create a stored procedure which is executing SHOW SLAVE STATUS.

cnx = mysql.connector.connect(user='scott', password='tiger',
                              database='mining')
cur = cnx.cursor()
cur.execute("DROP PROCEDURE IF EXISTS slave_status")
proc = "CREATE PROCEDURE slave_status () BEGIN SHOW SLAVE STATUS; END"
cur.execute()
cur.call("slave_status")

for result_cursor in cur.stored_results():
 for row in result_cursor:
   print(row[0])

The result from the above would be:

shell> python foo.py
Waiting for master to send event

Discussion

The stored_results() method of …

Sandboxed MySQL Utilities – HowTo

Often I would need to work on customer servers where MySQL Utilities would be a really good fit for the tools I need. However, I would not want to mess around with the customer servers just to have it running so I would have the tools built and sandboxed on its own directory where I can cleanup later. Here’s how:

cd ~
wget http://mysql.mirrors.hoobly.com/Downloads/MySQLGUITools/mysql-utilities-1.4.1.tar.gz
tar xzf mysql-utilities-1.4.1.tar.gz
cd mysql-utilities-1.4.1
python setup.py build
python setup.py install --root=/home/revin/mysql-utilities-1.4.1
export PYTHONPATH=.:/home/revin/mysql-utilities-1.4.1/usr/lib/python2.6/site-packages
/home/revin/mysql-utilities-1.4.1/usr/bin/mysqlfrm --help

Your source of the package and install directory may vary – enjoy!
