Effortlessly Scaling out Galera Cluster with ProxySQL

A blog series about ProxySQL and Galera…

This post is the first of a series of blogposts on how to easily use ProxySQL to scale-out your application’s database workload on a Galera cluster. This series will explore the main concepts in configuring ProxySQL for Galera across three articles as follows:

– A first introductory post describing the minimal configuration needed for ProxySQL to monitor and manage a Galera Cluster.
– A second post describing how to setup a read/write split configuration for our Galera Cluster, using ProxySQL query rules.
– A third and final post with examples on specific cluster configuration options and more detailed explanations on why and how ProxySQL changes the nodes states based on configuration changes and monitored variables. Requirements

To illustrate how to configure ProxySQL for a Galera Cluster we will use a sample Galera Cluster

Replication Between Two Percona XtraDB Clusters, GTIDs and Schema Changes

I got this question on the “How to Avoid Pitfalls in Schema Upgrade with Percona XtraDB Cluster (PXC)” webinar and wanted to answer it in a separate post.

Will RSU have an effect on GTID consistency if replication PXC cluster to another cluster?

Answer for this: yes and no.

Galera assigns its own GTID for the operations, replicated to all nodes of the cluster. Such operations include DML (

INSERT/UPDATE/DELETE

 ) on InnoDB tables and DDL commands, executed with default TOI method. You can find more details on how GTIDs work in the Percona XtraDB Cluster in this blog post.

However, DDL commands, executed with RSU method, are …

Galera Cluster 4 for MySQL 8 is Generally Available!

Codership is proud to announce the first Generally Available (GA) release of Galera Cluster 4 for MySQL 8 and improve MySQL High Availability a great deal. The current release comes with MySQL 8.0.19 and includes the Galera Replication Library 4.5 with wsrep API version 26. You can download it now (and note that we have packages for various Linux distributions). 

Galera 4 and MySQL 8.0.19 have many new features, but here are some of the highlights:

  • Streaming replication to support large transactions by splitting transaction replication then applying them in smaller fragments. You can use this feature to load data faster, as data is written to all nodes simultaneously (or not at all in case of a failure in any single node).
  • Improved …

Percona Live Europe Amsterdam Day 1 notes

Percona Live Europe Amsterdam Day 1 was a bunch of fun, especially since I didn’t have to give a talk or anything since my tutorial was over on Day 0.

At lunch, I realised that there are a lot more fringe events happening around Percona Live… and if you’ve seen how people do “tech weeks”, maybe this is what the event ends up being – a show, plus plenty of focused satellite events. FOSDEM in the open source world totally gets this, and best of all, also lists fringe events (see example from 2019).

So, Thursday evening gets a few fringe events, a relatively short train ride away:
