MySQL InnoDB Cluster : avoid split-brain while forcing quorum

We saw yesterday that when an issue (like network splitting), it’s possible to remain with a partitioned cluster where none of the partition have quorum (majority of members). For more info read how to manage a split-brain situation.

If your read the previous article you notice the red warning about forcing the quorum. As an advice is never too much, let me write it down again here : “Be careful that the best practice is to shutdown the other nodes to avoid any kind of conflicts if they reappear during the process of forcing quorum“.

But if some network problem is happening it might not be possible to shutdown those other nodes. Would it be really bad ?

YES !

Split-Brain

Remember, we were in this situation:

MySQL InnoDB Cluster – how to manage a split-brain situation

Everywhere I go to present MySQL InnoDB Cluster, during the demo of creating a cluster, many people doesn’t understand why when I’ve 2 members, my cluster is not yet tolerant to any failure.

Indeed when you create a MySQL InnoDB Cluster, as soon as you have added your second instance, you can see in the status:

    "status": "OK_NO_TOLERANCE",      
"statusText": "Cluster is NOT tolerant to any failures.",

Quorum

Why is that ? It’s because, to be part of primary partition (the partition that holds the service, the one having a Primary-Master in Single Primary Mode, the default mode), your partition must reach the majority of nodes (quorum). In MySQL InnoDB Cluster (and many other cluster solutions), to achieve quorum, the amount of members in a partition must be > (bigger) than 50%.

So when we have 2 nodes, if there is a network issue between …

MySQL InnoDB Cluster – howto install it from scratch

MySQL InnoDB Cluster is evolving very nicely. I realized that the MySQL Shell also improved a lot and that it has never been so easy to setup a cluster on 3 new nodes.

This is a video of the updated procedure on how to install MySQL InnoDB Cluster on GNU Linux rpm based (Oracle Linux, RedHat, CentOS, Fedora, …)

Importing Data from MongoDB to MySQL: BSON Data Types

The latest release of the MySQL Shell 8.0.14 (GA) improved the JSON import utility to support the conversion of more BSON data types from the strict mode representation of MongoDB Extended JSON. This removes a previous limitation regarding the import of more complex MongoDB data types to MySQL, making it more reliable.…

MySQL Shell : the best DBA tool?

Last week I presented the following session at the pre-FOSDEM MySQL Day:

MySQL Shell : the best DBA tool ? from Frederic Descamps

The audience seemed very interested on how the MySQL Shell can be extended.

During the presentation I showed how I extended the MySQL Shell with two new modules in Python:

Both projects are on github and are waiting for ideas, feature requests, pull requests, …

MySQL 8: Drop Several Stored Events, Procedures, or Functions

Tweet

Maybe the biggest new feature in MySQL 8 is the new transaction data dictionary that improves the consistency of schema objects among other things. To further protect the data in the data dictionary, the data dictionary tables are hidden and their content only exposed through the Information Schema. (One exception is when you use the debug binary, then it is possible to get direct access to the data dictionary tables. This is not recommended at all on production systems!)

A side effect of the data dictionary tables being hidden is that those that have had a habit of manipulating the tables directly in MySQL 5.7 and earlier (I will not recommend doing that) will no longer be able to do so. Examples of manipulating the tables include …

MySQL InnoDB Cluster with 2 Data Centers for Disaster Recovery: howto – part 2

In the first part of this howto, I illustrated how to setup two MySQL InnoDB Cluster linked by an asynchronous replication.

In that solution, I didn’t use any replication filters to ignore the replication of the InnoDB Cluster’s metadata (mysql_innodb_cluster_metadata), but I used the same metadata tables with two different clusters in it.

The benefit is that this allows to backup everything from any node in any of the data center, it works also in MySQL 5.7, and there is not risk to mess up with the replication filters.

In this blog I will show how to use replication filters to link two different clusters. This doesn’t work on …

Pager for the New MySQL Shell

I love the new shell but the one thing I missed from the old shell was the ability to use a pager like more or less to throttle the output of the screen.  Low and behold the engineers have added paging in MySQL Shell 8.0.13!!

Turn Paging On
Things can scroll off the screen quickly and pagination programs keep the output to small chunks.  To pick the more program as you pagination program, simply enter \pager more or for less enter \pager less

See the first illustration
