InnoDB Cluster: setting up Production… for disaster! (2/2)

Ok, so now we’re got our InnoDB Cluster a-clustering, MySQL Router a-routing, now we need some disaster to be a-disaster-recovering…

A foreword first.

If you’re looking to use Enterprise Backup to recover a single node and restore that node back into an existing InnoDB Cluster, LeFred takes you through that one nicely here.

Preparing for backup

On our single primary server, the one that allows write, which was ic2/10.0.0.12 in my case:

mysql -uroot -poracle << EOF 
SET sql_log_bin = OFF; 
 create user 'backup'@'%' identified by 'oracle';
 grant all on *.* to 'backup'@'%';
SET sql_log_bin = ON; 
EOF

Let’s create something to backup (if you haven’t already done so of course):

mysqlsh --uri …

InnoDB Cluster: setting up Production… for disaster! (1/2)

Want to setup InnoDB Cluster and be prepared for a Disaster Recovery scenario? Get ready:

Here’s a way to set up InnoDB Cluster using the 3 environments, on Oracle Linux 7.2, 5.7.19 MySQL Commercial Server, MySQL Shell 8.0.3 DMR, MySQL Router. As this is the first blog post for a complete disaster recovery scenario of InnoDB Cluster, we’ll also be installing MySQL Enterprise Backup.

If you’re new to InnoDB Cluster then I’d highly recommend looking at the following to understand how it works and what Group Replication, Shell & Router are.:

Lock, Stock and MySQL Backups: Data Guaranteed Webinar Follow Up Questions

Hello again! On August 16, we delivered a webinar on MySQL backups. As always, we’ve had a number of interesting questions. Some of them we’ve answered on the webinar, but we’d like to share some of them here in writing.

What is the best way to maintain daily full backups, but selective restores omitting certain archive tables?

There are several ways this can be done, listed below (though not necessarily limited to the following):

  1. Using logical dumps (i.e., mydumper, mysqlpump, mysqldump). This allows you to dump per table and thus be able to selectively restore.
  2. Backup the important tables and archive tables separately, allowing to restore separately as well. This is a better …

How to create a rock-solid MySQL database backup & recovery strategy

Have you ever wondered what could happen if your MySQL database goes down?

Although it’s evident such a crash will cause downtime – and surely some business impact in terms of revenue – can you do something to reduce this impact?

The simple answer is “yes” by doing regular backups (of course) but are you 100% sure that your current backup strategy will really come through when an outage occurs? And how much precious time will pass (and how much revenue will be lost) before you get your business back online?

I usually think of backups as the step after HA fails. Let’s say we’re in M<>M replication and something occurs that kills the db but the HA can’t save the day. Let’s pretend that the UPS fails and those servers are completely out. You can’t failover; you have to restore data. Backups are a key piece of “Business Continuity.” Also factor in the frequent need to restore data that’s been …

Restore / Recover dropped MySQL database from binary logs

In this post I will share a recovery scenario of a MySQL database restore from the binary logs. Recently someone accidentally dropped an important MySQL database and the backup was not present! As we know the the binary log contains DMLs to table data and that’s where our hope lies. Luckily the binary log retention […]

How to Bootstrap MySQL/MariaDB Galera Cluster

January 27, 2015 By Severalnines

Unlike standard MySQL server and MySQL Cluster, the way to start a MySQL/MariaDB Galera Cluster is a bit different. Galera requires you to start a node in a cluster as a reference point, before the remaining nodes are able to join and form the cluster. This process is known as cluster bootstrap. Bootstrapping is an initial step to introduce a database node as primary component, before others see it as a reference point to sync up data.

 

How does it work?

 

When Galera starts with the bootstrap command on a node, that particular node will reach Primary state (check the value of wsrep_cluster_status). The remaining nodes will just require a normal start command and they will automatically look for existing Primary Component (PC) in the cluster and join to form a cluster. Data synchronization then happens through either incremental state transfer (IST) or …

Recover Corrupt MySQL Database

The unDROP for InnoDB tool can be used to recover corrupt MySQL database. In this post we will show how to repair MySQL database if its files became corrupted and even innodb_force_recovery=6 doesn’t help.

The corruption of InnoDB tablespace may be caused by many reasons. A dying hard drive can write garbage, thus page checksum will be wrong. InnoDB then reports to the error log:

InnoDB: Database page corruption on disk or a failed
InnoDB: file read of page 4.

MySQL is well know for poor start-up script. A simple upgrade procedure may end up with two mysqld processes writing to the same tablespace. That leads to the corruption too. Sometimes power reset corrupts not only InnoDB files, but file system becomes unusable for the operating system.

InnoDB …
