Last time I had to use gdb to check what's going on in MySQL server and found something useful with it to share in the blog post it was April 2017, and I miss this kind of experience already. So, today I decided to try it again in a hope to get some insights in cases when other tools may not apply or may not be as helpful as one could expect. Here is the long enough story, based on recent customer issue I worked on this week.

Faster Node Rejoins with Improved IST performance

In this blog, we’ll look at how improvements to Percona XtraDB Cluster improved IST performance.
