Slick Command-Line Tricks for a Tungsten MySQL / MariaDB Database Cluster

Overview The Skinny

Tungsten Clustering provides high availability, disaster recovery, and a host of other benefits for MySQL / MariaDB / Percona Server databases. In this blog post we will explore some of the shell aliases I use every day to administer various Tungsten Clusters.

Shell Aliases: A Quick Review Quick and Easy

A shell alias is simply a way to create a shortcut for frequently-used command sequences.

For example, I like to shorten the command clear to cls, i.e.

shell> alias cls=clear
shell> cls

If you create an alias on the fly it will be lost when the shell exits.

To save aliases so they are available to all shell sessions, update your shell’s profile or rc script.

For example, add the below line to the bottom of …

MySQL InnoDB Cluster – Recovering and provisioning with MySQL Enterprise Backup

Like I stated in my previous article - MySQL InnoDB Cluster - Recovering and provisioning with mysqldump : "As the administrator of a cluster, among others tasks, you should be able to restore failed nodes and to add (or remove) new nodes". Well, I still agree with myself :) MySQL customers using a Commercial Edition have access to MySQL Enterprise Backup (MEB) which provide enterprise-grade physical backup and recovery for MySQL. MEB delivers hot, online, non-blocking backups on multiple platforms including Linux, Windows, Mac & Solaris.

MySQL InnoDB Cluster – Recovering and provisioning with mysqldump

As the administrator of a cluster, among other tasks, you should be able to restore failed nodes and grow (or shrink) your cluster by adding (or removing) new nodes. In MySQL, as a backup tool (and if your amount of data is not too big), you can use mysqldump a client utility that performs logical backups. The results are SQL statements that reproduce the original schema objects and data. For substantial amounts of data however, a physical backup solution such as MySQL Enterprise Backup is faster, particularly for the restore operation. But this is the topic of my next blog post :)

What on Earth is a Split-Brain Scenario in a MySQL Database Cluster?

Overview The Skinny

In this blog post we will define what a split-brain scenario means in a MySQL database cluster, and then explore how a Tungsten MySQL database cluster reacts to a split-brain situation.

Agenda What’s Here?

  • Define the term “split-brain”
  • Briefly explore how the Tungsten Manager works to monitor the cluster health and prevent data corruption in the event of a network partition
  • Also explore how the Tungsten Connector works to route writes
  • Describe how a Tungsten MySQL database cluster reacts to a split-brain situation
  • Illustrate various testing and recovery procedures

Split-Brain: Definition and Impact Sounds scary, and it is!

A split-brain occurs when a MySQL database cluster which normally has …

Your Data On The World Wide Web… Forever!

If you share your photos on social media, they will stay on the internet forever…

Many of us have heard or read this sentence during conversations with friends, in articles, online forums, TV shows, etc.

But how is it possible that we can’t seem to be able to fully remove our photos from the internet when we want to, and, taking this further, that our photos are never lost and always retrievable (which can both be a good and a bad thing)?

The behind-the-scenes, technical secret lies in data replication.

The very first moment when you share a photo on social media, that photo is uploaded into the closest available database server. In the second moment, that same photo is replicated into multiple other servers around the world.

This is what data …
