Failover comparison in Aurora MySQL 2.10.0 using proxySQL vs Aurora’s cluster endpoint

 

Aurora cluster promises a high availability solution and seamless failover procedure. However, how much is actually the downtime when a failover happens? And how proxySQL can help in minimizing the downtime ? A little sneak peek on the results ProxySQL achieves up to 25x less downtime and the impressive up to ~9800x less errors during unplanned failovers. How proxySQL achieves this: 

  1. Less downtime
  2. “Queueing” feature when an instance in a hostgroup becomes unavailable.

So what is ProxySQL? ProxySQL is a middle layer between the database and the application. ProxySQL protects databases from high traffic spikes, prevents databases from having high number of connections due to the multiplexing feature and minimizes the impact during planned/unexpected failovers or crashes of DBs. 

This blog will continue with measuring the impact of an unexpected …

A Look Into Percona XtraDB Cluster Non-Blocking Operation for Online Schema Upgrade

Percona XtraDB Cluster 8.0.25 (PXC) has introduced a new option to perform online schema modifications: NBO (Non-Blocking Operation).

When using PXC, the cluster relies on the wsrep_OSU_method parameter to define the Online Schema Upgrade (OSU) method the node uses to replicate DDL statements. 

Until now, we normally have three options:

  • Use Total Isolation Order (TOI, the default)
  • Use Rolling Schema Upgrade (RSU)
  • Use Percona’s online schema change tool (TOI + PTOSC)

Each method has some positive and negative aspects. TOI will lock the whole …

Percona Distribution for MySQL: High Availability with Group Replication Solution

This blog provides high availability (HA) guidelines using group replication architecture and deployment recommendations in MySQL, based on our best practices.

Every architecture and deployment depends on the customer requirements and application demands for high availability and the estimated level of usage. For example, using high read or high write applications, or both, with a need for 99.999% availability.

Here, we give architecture and deployment recommendations along with a technical overview for a solution that provides a high level of high availability and assumes the usage of high read/write applications (20k or more queries per second).
