Chose right SST method MariaDB Cluster 10.2

                In this blog post, I am going to explain an interesting issue which I faced in one of our client project . Few weeks back , I got an requirement from our support client to construct a new MariaDB Galera Cluster ( 10.2.21 ) and an async slave with GTID. The Complete requirement is as below.

  • Need to construct the Galera cluster with 37 GB of data ( Using a given MySQL dump file )
  • Have to configure an asynchronous slave under the 3 node Galera cluster
  • The asynchronous slave was proposed with GTID to ease master node switchover.

So, as per the requirement the architecture will be,

How to achieve this ?

A high level steps

The MySQL High Availability Landscape and where Galera Cluster fits in (USA and EMEA Webinar)

The MySQL Server High Availability landscape provides with a slew of tools to help you ensure that your databases keep humming. Such tools are Galera Cluster, however, it is worth looking at semi-synchronous replication with failover tools, and also the usual leader-follower asynchronous replication. Today more workloads are moving to the cloud, and what failover options do you get with Amazon RDS for MySQL or even Aurora? What about the newfangled group replication and InnoDB Cluster? And let us not forget that Galera Cluster has spawned branches too!

Join Codership, the developers and experts of Galera Cluster,  as we discuss where Galera Cluster fits in and how to get best out of it.

MariaDB OpenWorks was an ocean of Galera Cluster activity

MariaDB OpenWorks happened February 25-27 2019 in New York City, and it was filled with a lot of activity.

The keynote by Michael Howard is an interesting watch, one with many quoted articles especially around “strip-mining open source technologies and companies,” and “abusing the license and privilege, and not giving back to the community.” Many articles were written about this topic, and it is clear that open source has arrived considering all the success around the IBM acquisition of Red Hat, the Elastic IPO, the Microsoft acquisition of GitHub, the SalesForce acquisition fo MuleSoft and the MongoDB IPO.

MariaDB Galera Cluster upgrade test results overview 10.3 -> 10.4

Recently MariaDB Galera Cluster 10.4.3 RC was announced – Galera MariaDB 10.4.3 RC

I would like to summarize overall reported issues related to Upgrade Tests from 10.3 version to 10.4.
In general we have 3 upgrade strategies:

* Provider upgrade – Upgrading only Galera
* Bulk upgrade – shut down all cluster and upgrade all nodes.
* Rolling Upgrade – Shut down nodes 1-by-1 and Upgrade sequentially.

There is great attention on smooth and safe Upgrade practices which is quite valid point for all users.
Let’s see what we have on Rolling Upgrade side.
Here is the list of FIXED issues:

How to Switch Replica Master of a non-GTID Slave in Percona Cluster ?

Introduction –

Recently i worked on a production issue for one of our client under support .They have a architecture of a three node Galera cluster with one asynchronous slave .

  • Node1 – 172.10.2.11
  • Node2 – 172.10.2.12
  • Node3 – 172.10.2.13
  • Replica – 172.10.2.14

Architecture –

The slave(replica) was configured with node3 as replica master. Unfortunately the node 3 was crashed with an OOM killer ,also server has a low gcache size, so when i am trying to start the node 3 , it went to SST . Here the data size was around 2.6 TB , in general for completion of whole SST and joining the node back to cluster will take around  approximately 12 hours.

As i told earlier, the replication slave was under …

Let’s talk about MySQL high availability (HA) and synchronous replication once more.

It’s part of a longer series on some high availability reference architecture solutions over geographically distributed areas.

Part 1: Reference Architecture(s) for High Availability Solutions in Geographic Distributed Scenarios: Why Should I Care?

Part 2: MySQL High Availability On-Premises: A Geographically Distributed Scenario

The Problem

A question I often get from customers is: How do I achieve high availability in case if I need to spread my data in different, distant locations? …
