The MySQL High Availability Landscape in 2017 (The Adults)

In this blog post, we’ll look at some of the MySQL high availability solution options.

In the previous post of this series, we looked at the MySQL high availability (HA) solutions that have been around for a long time. I called these solutions “the elders.” Some of these solutions (like replication) are heavily used today and have been improved from release to release of MySQL.

This post focuses on the MySQL high availability solutions that have appeared over the last five years and gained a fair amount of traction in the community. I chose to include this group only two solutions: Galera and RDS Aurora. I’ll use the term “Galera” generically: it covers Galera Cluster, MariaDB Cluster and Percona …

More house chores: Cleaning up the binary log

Historically, the MySQL binary log has gone through a few revisions resulting in different versions of how the log is formatted. The following shows the version of the binary log and the MySQL version in which it appears. As you can see, version 4 is the current version of the binary log found in the current releases of MySQL.…

orchestrator/raft: Pre-Release 3.0

orchestrator 3.0 Pre-Release is now available. Most notable are Raft consensus, SQLite backend support, orchestrator-client no-binary-required client script.

TL;DR

You may now set up high availability for orchestrator via raft consensus, without need to set up high availability for orchestrator's backend MySQL servers (such as Galera/InnoDB Cluster). In fact, you can run a orchestrator/raft setup using embedded SQLite backend DB. Read on.

orchestrator still supports the existing shared backend DB paradigm; nothing dramatic changes if you upgrade to 3.0 and do not configure raft.

Group Replication: The Sweet and the Sour

In this blog, we’ll look at group replication and how it deals with flow control (FC) and replication lag. 

Overview

In the last few months, we had two main actors in the MySQL ecosystem: ProxySQL and Group-Replication (with the evolution to InnoDB Cluster). 

While I have extensively covered the first, my last serious work on Group Replication dates back to some lab version years past.

Given that Oracle decided to declare it GA, and Percona’s decision to provide some level of Group Replication support, I decided it was time for me to take a look at it again.

We’ve seen a lot of coverage already too many Group Replication topics. There are articles about Group Replication and performance, Group Replication and basic functionalities (or lack of it like automatic node provisioning), Group Replication and ProxySQL, and so on.

But one question kept coming up over and over in my …
