Exploring MySQL Binlog Server – Ripple

MySQL does not limit the number of slaves that you can connect to the master server in a replication topology. However, as the number of slaves increases, they will have a toll on the master resources because the binary logs will need to be served to different slaves working at different speeds. If the data churn on the master is high, the serving of binary logs alone could saturate the network interface of the master.

A classic solution for this problem is to deploy a binlog server – an intermediate proxy server that sits between the master and its slaves. The binlog server is set up as a slave to the master, and in turn, acts as a master to the original set of slaves. It receives binary log events from the master, does not apply these events, but serves them to all the other slaves. This way, the load on the master is tremendously reduced, and at the same time, the binlog server serves …

Use Case: MySQL HA and Disaster Recovery

How to achieve MySQL high availability, data protection & disaster recovery

This MySQL high availability and disaster recovery use case is based on a customer of ours who is a government-regulated lottery service consisting of a number of games of chance. Its mission is to fuel imagination – and fund education for all citizens of their state as it uses the proceeds of its activities to do so. Through its games, it has provided billions of dollars in scholarship and other such education funding for several decades.

What is the Challenge?

As is common for gambling and betting organisations, our customer faced a number of challenges and needed to have a solid infrastructure in place in order to provide its services satisfactorily.

This includes:

  • Ensuring 24/7/365 availability of its online gaming platform
  • Handling thousands of transactions quickly and while ensuring zero downtime …

Evaluating Percona XtraDB Cluster 8.0 in I/O Bound Workload

Percona XtraDB Cluster 8.0 is in the final stretch before GA release and we have pre-release packages available for testing, and I wanted to see how Percona XtraDB Cluster 8.0 performs in CPU and IO-bound scenarios, like in my previous posts about MySQL Group Replication.

In this blog, I want to evaluate Percona XtraDB Cluster 8.0 scaling capabilities in I/O bound cases when we increase the number of nodes and increase user connections. The version I used is available here: …

18 Things You Can Do to Remove MySQL Bottlenecks Caused by High Traffic (Part Three)

This is a three-part blog series that focuses on dealing with an unexpected high traffic event as it is happening. Part one can be found here, and part two can be found here.   13. Configure MySQL Server Properly

Complexity:Medium
Potential Impact: High 

A poorly configured MySQL Server can cause severe issues, especially under high load during a traffic spike, yet getting the basics right is not that hard. While MySQL Server has more than 400 variables you can tune, you rarely need to change more than 10-20 of them to get 95% of the possible performance for your workload.

18 Things You Can Do to Remove MySQL Bottlenecks Caused by High Traffic (Part Two)

This is a three-part blog series that focuses on dealing with an unexpected high traffic event as it is happening. Part one can be found here and part three can be found here. 7. Get More Memory

Complexity: Low
Potential Impact: High

If your data does not fit into memory well, your MySQL performance is likely to be severely limited. If your data already fits in well, adding even more memory will not provide any performance improvements.

Even when you’re running on very fast storage, such as Intel Optane or directly Attached NVMe Storage, accessing data in memory is still more than an order …
