Galera Manager March 2024 Release now includes UI improvements and a SSH console tab

Codership is please to announce a new release of Galera Manager. This brings the installer to version 1.13.0 (you can check this by typing: ./gm-installer version which will report gm-installer version 1.13.0 (linux/amd64)) and the actual Galera Manager GUI to 1.8.4. Users will notice many usability improvements, and multiple fixes for issues filed at the galera-manager-support issue tracker.

The biggest facing user items in this release include a “jobs” tracker. It can be a flat list or a hierarchical view, and you will notice that this is not just for a cluster wide view, but also for individual nodes. Naturally on the left hand menu, you will also see Jobs listed there; this is to show jobs that do not belong to any cluster.

Consequences of Forcing Bootstrap on Percona XtraDB Cluster

Recently, I was working on a very unfortunate case that revolved around diverging clusters, data loss, missing important log errors, and forcing commands on Percona XtraDB Cluster (PXC). Even though PXC tries its best to explain what happens in the error log, I can vouch that it can be missed or overlooked when you do not know what to expect.

This blog post is a warning tale, an invitation to try yourself and break stuff (not in production, right?).

Do you know right away what happened when seeing this log?
