MySQL MHA and Perl pathing

I am certainly not a knowledgeable Perl person, however I recently ran into the error Can’t locate MHA/ on Red Hat 6.x. I have installed MySQL MHA on various systems before without any issues.

$ masterha_manager -version
Can't locate MHA/ in @INC (@INC contains: /usr/local/lib64/perl5 /usr/local/share/perl5 /usr/lib64/perl5/vendor_perl /usr/share/perl5/vendor_perl /usr/lib64/perl5 /usr/share/perl5 .) at /usr/bin/masterha_manager line 26.
BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at /usr/bin/masterha_manager line 26.

The issue was that MySQL MHA is not installed in any of the acceptable default paths for this disto default installation.

$ find / -type d -name MHA

The fix was simple on this OS, but I expect there is a correct Perl approach?

Not a cool new feature for Master_Host

I was surprised to find on a customer MySQL server this new syntax for Master_host in SHOW SLAVE STATUS.

*************************** 1. row ***************************
               Slave_IO_State: Connecting to master
                  Master_Host: or 10.XXX.XX.XXX
                  Master_User: repl
                  Master_Port: 3306
                Connect_Retry: 60
              Master_Log_File: db1-354215-bin-log.000005
          Read_Master_Log_Pos: 1624
               Relay_Log_File: db2-354214-relay-log.000001

Is this a fancy new Percona Server feature? No. It’s operator error.

We read a little further to find.

Installing MySQL MHA with Percona Server

MySQL MHA by Oracle ACE Director Yoshinori Matsunobu is an excellent open source tool to help in providing HA with native MySQL replication. The installation however is dependent on some Perl packages and to the untrained eye this may be an issue if you are using Percona Server as your choice of MySQL implementation.

The MHA Node page requires the perl-DBD-MySQL package to be installed. The installation on RedHat/CentOS/Oracle Linux look like this:

$ sudo yum install perl-DBD-MySQL
Loaded plugins: fastestmirror
Loading mirror speeds from cached hostfile
* base:
* extras:
* updates:

As the dog days of summer set in and temperatures rise, this year’s O’Reilly OSCON conference in Portland, OR offered the open source community a brief respite from the heat. However, if you’re thinking the event lacked sizzle, think again. The energy, the discussions and the opportunities to collaborate, plus the chance to learn from/ interact with customers and potential customers, made OSCON one of the highlights of July.


While I’ve attended previous OSCON conferences while at MySQL AB, this was the first time I’ve attended as the CEO of SkySQL. My new role provided a different perspective, as well as new kinds of opportunities to interact with the open source community. There were plenty of terrific, formal presentations and Birds of a Feather (BOF) sessions, however, those from MySQL, MariaDB and Drizzle were especially noteworthy and informative. Here were a few high points:
