The MySQL High Availability Landscape in 2017 (The Elders)

In this blog, we’ll look at different MySQL high availability options.

The dynamic MySQL ecosystem is rapidly evolving many technologies built around MySQL. This is especially true for the technologies involved with the high availability (HA) aspects of MySQL. When I joined Percona back in 2009, some of these HA technologies were very popular – but have since been almost forgotten. During the same interval, new technologies have emerged. In order to give some perspective to the reader, and hopefully help to make better choices, I’ll review the MySQL HA landscape as it is in 2017. This review will be in three parts. The first part (this post) will cover the technologies that have been around for a long time: the elders. The second part will focus on the technologies that are very popular today: the adults. Finally, the last part will try to extrapolate which technologies could become popular in the upcoming years: the …

Migration from MySQL Master-Slave pair to MySQL InnoDB Cluster: howto

MySQL InnoDB Cluster (or only Group Replication) becomes more and more popular. This solution doesn’t attract only experts anymore. On social medias, forums and other discussions, people are asking me what it the best way to migrate a running environment using traditional asynchronous replication [Master -> Slave(s)] to InnoDB Cluster.

The following procedure is what I’m actually recommending. These steps have for objective to reduce the downtime to the minimum for the database service.

We can divide the procedure in 9 steps:

  1. the current situation
  2. preparing the future cluster
  3. data transfert
  4. replication from current system
  5. creation of the cluster with a single instance
  6. adding instances to the cluster
  7. configure the router
  8. test phase
  9. pointing the application to the new solution

Enterprise Ready InnoDB Clusters

Recently MySQL launched the General Availability of their Group Replication enhancements via the MySQL Shell and MySQL Router. Although these URLs just noted go to their respective documentation pages, these collectively are part of the InnoDB Cluster offering. The MySQL shell provides sophisticated provisioning, monitored insight and management of a Group Replication setup. When provisioned as such, you… Read More »

MySQL Shell: eye candy for a future release !

 

Today I presented MySQL InnoDB Cluster at the Helsinki MySQL User Group.

To demonstrate how easy it’s to deploy a cluster with MySQL Shell and used the prompt that will be part of a future release just because it’s beautiful.

If you also want to see how it looks like, just check the video below:

There were several MongoDB users in the audience and I got only very positive feedback, they were very surprised how easy it’s to deploy a MySQL InnoDB Cluster these days !

Getting to know MySQL InnoDB cluster, the new kid in the block

InnoDB Cluster was released as GA a few weeks ago. I remember the initial announcement of the product at OOW 2016, promising a seamless solution for replication and high availability with great ease of use. I was a bit disappointed to see that, at GA release time, the InnoDB Cluster is a patchwork of three separate products (Group Replication, MySQL Router, MySQL Shell) which the users have to collect and install separately.

Given this situation, I was very pleased when Matthew Lord published Docker-InnoDB-Cluster, an image for Docker that contains everything you need to get the system up and running. The …

MySQL Group Replication and logical backup

Taking a logical backup of a member of a Group Replication Cluster is not something very easy.

Currently (5.7.17, 5.7.18 or 8.0.0) if you want to use mysqldump to take a logical backup of your dataset, you need to lock all the tables on the member you are taking the dump. Indeed, a single transaction can’t be used as savepoints are not compatible with Group Replication.

[root@mysql3 ~]# mysqldump -p  --single-transaction --all-databases --triggers \
                      --routines --events >dump.sql
Enter password:
mysqldump: Couldn't execute 'SAVEPOINT sp': The MySQL server is running with the 
--transaction-write-set-extraction!=OFF option so it cannot execute this 
statement (1290)

So we need to use:

[root@mysql3 ~]# mysqldump -p  --lock-all-tables --all-databases --triggers \
                      --routines --events >dump.sql
Enter password:

This can have a negative effect on the full Group’s …

Group Replication support SAVEPOINT

Group Replication has been around as GA for some months now. Nonetheless, work continues and now we are happy to let you know that you can now use transaction savepoints when write-set extraction is enabled.

This enhancement was released as in MySQL 8.0.1.…

Performance improvements in Percona XtraDB Cluster 5.7.17-29.20

In our latest release of Percona XtraDB Cluster, we’ve introduced major performance improvements to the MySQLwrite-set replication layer. In this post, we want to show what these improvements look like.

For the test, we used the sysbench OLTP_RW, UPDATE_KEY and UPDATE_NOKEY workloads with 100 tables, 4mln rows each, which gives about 100GB of datasize. In all the tests we use a three-node setup, connected via a 10GB network, with the sysbench load directed to the one primary node.

In the first chart, we show improvements comparing to the previous version (5.7.16):

The main improvements come from concurrent workloads, under multiple threads.

The …
