MySQL 8 Group Replication Limitations

Understanding MySQL 8.0 Group Replication Limitations to build an highly reliable MySQL Infrastructure Operations  Introduction – Redundant and fault-tolerant database systems

Most of our customers are 24*7 internet properties and their applications ( i.e. entire business operations) rely heavily on availability of respective database systems nodes, These systems going unavailable cause serious impact on reputation, customer experience and revenue. To ensure business continuity under foreseeable and unforeseeable man-made or natural disasters, the database system has to be designed and built with fault tolerance and disaster recovery capabilities, in other words the component can be removed and the system should continue to operate as expected. High availability refers to the characteristics of a system that allow the system to sustain continuous operation in the event of hardware and software failures due to natural or man …

Group Replication delivery message service

In the process of enhancing MySQL replication with new features for our users, we also improve the internals. A lot of work goes also to modernize the codebase and make it easier to maintain and obviously extend as well.

In MySQL 8.0.18,…

Automatic member fencing with OFFLINE_MODE in Group Replication

Group Replication enables you to create fault-tolerant systems with redundancy by replicating the system state to a set of servers. Even if some of the servers subsequently fail, as long it is not all or a majority, the system is still available.…

Using MySQL Shell to create a three-node MySQL InnoDB Cluster

MySQL InnoDB Cluster was introduced in MySQL version 5.7 and consists of three parts – Group Replication, MySQL Shell and MySQL Router. MySQL InnoDB Cluster provides a complete high availability solution for MySQL. In this post, I am going to explain how to setup a three-node cluster using the MySQL Shell.

Adding a replicated MySQL database instance using a Group Replication server as the source

You say you want a Replication?

One of the best features of MySQL is the ability to use MySQL‘s built-in database replication feature to automatically replicate data from one server (source/master) to another (slave/replica). Group Replication was added in MySQL 5.7 as a way to provide a high-availability solution using a new variation of MySQL replication.

(In some earlier posts, I explained how to setup Group Replication using three MySQL database servers and how to …

Group Replication – Consistent Reads Deep Dive

On previous posts about Group Replication consistency we:

  1. introduced consistency levels;
  2. explained how to configure the primary failover consistency;
  3. presented how to configure transaction consistency levels to achieve the consistency required by your applications.

In blog 3. we presented the consistency levels: EVENTUAL, BEFORE, AFTER and BEFORE_AND_AFTER; their scopes: SESSION, GLOBAL; and their context: whether they only impact the ongoing transaction or all concurrent transactions.…

Group Replication – Consistent Reads

As we showed on the introduction post, in MySQL 8.0.14 Group Replication was once again improved. Now the developer can specify which is the consistency level of all group transactions or even of a single transaction.

Note that this is about consistency in terms of the global synchronization of transactions in the group.…

Group Replication – Consistency Levels

The MySQL Group Replication (GR) feature is a multi-primary update anywhere or single-primary replication plugin for MySQL with built-in conflict detection and resolution, automatic distributed recovery, and group membership.

Its goal it is to make high-availability (HA) simple with off-the-shelf hardware, not only to new applications but also existing ones – that was one of the motivations of the single-primary mode.…

Extending replication instrumentation: account for memory used in XCom

Version 8.0.12 added many great new features to MySQL. One of the new features included is the memory instrumentation of the XCom cache, which allows users to view and monitor the memory utilization of the cache by querying Performance Schema (PS).…

MySQL 8.0 Group Replication Limitations

We build highly available and fault tolerant MySQL database infrastructure operations for some of the largest internet properties in this planet,  Our consulting team spend several hours daily researching on MySQL documentation and MySQL blogs to understand what are the best possible ways we can build optimal, scalable, highly available and reliable database infrastructure operations for planet-scale web properties. The most common approach towards building a fault-tolerant system is to make all the components in the ecosystem redundant, To make it even simple, component can be removed and system should continue to operate as expected.  MySQL replication is an proven method to build redundant database infrastructure operations, operationally these systems are highly complex, requiring maintenance and administration of several servers instead of just one, You need Sr. DBAs to manage such systems.

MySQL Group Replication can operate …
