MySQL Group Replication: Conversion of GR Member to Async Replica (and Back) In the Same Cluster

MySQL Group Replication is a plugin that helps to implement highly available fault-tolerant replication topologies. In this blog, I am going to explain the complete steps involved in the below two topics.

  • How to convert the group replication member to an asynchronous replica
  • How to convert the asynchronous replica to a group replication member

Why Am I Converting From GR Back to Old Async?

Recently I had a requirement from one of our customers running 5 node GR clusters. Once a month they are doing the bulk read job for generating the business reports. When they are doing the job, it affects the overall cluster performance because of the flow control issues. The node which is executing the read job is overloaded and delays the certification and writes apply process. The read job queries can’t be split across the cluster.  So, they don’t want that …

Setup DR for your MySQL InnoDB Cluster

MySQL InnoDB Cluster is the High Availability solution for MySQL. It delivers automatic fail-over and guarantees zero data loss (RPO=0).

RPO: Recovery Point Objective describes the interval of time that might pass during a disruption before the quantity of data lost during that period exceeds the Business Continuity Plan’s maximum allowable tolerance.

Example: our business architecture needs to have RPO=2 minutes. This means that in case of failure, 2 minutes of data can be lost.

However, and we saw this recently in Europe, an entire data center can “disappear” instantaneously… So it’s also important to have a Disaster Recovery plan.

One solution, is to have an InnoDB Cluster (Group Replication) that spans across multiple regions. However, this is often not feasible because of high latency across regions.

Another solution is InnoDB Cluster in one region with Asynchronous …

MySQL SHELL – The new era

In one of our previous articles - Setting up Replication with various methods for MySQL 8 - we reviewed how to create a replica with multiple tools.
Now, it is time to perform the same action but with MySQL Shell.

The post MySQL SHELL – The new era first appeared on dasini.net - Diary of a MySQL experts.

Automatic connection failover for Asynchronous Replication

Since MySQL 8.0.22 there is a mechanism in asynchronous replication that makes the receiver automatically try to re-establish an asynchronous replication connection to another sender, in case the current connection gets interrupted due to the failure of the current sender.

From MySQL Group Replication to MySQL InnoDB Cluster

I wanted to be brave and I installed MySQL Group Replication manually…. it was painful !

Then I realized that managing those servers and especially deal with MySQL Routers was even more painful !

What are my options now ? Is there a solution or do I need to restart from scratch ?

Asking the answer is already answering it… and once again MySQL Shell at the rescue.

MySQL Group Replication

I’ve configured everything manually. I also loaded group_replication and clone plugins and finally after having bootstrapped my Group here is what I have:

mysql> select member_host, member_port port, member_state state, 
       member_role role, member_version version 
       from performance_schema.replication_group_members;
+-------------+------+--------+-----------+---------+
| member_host | port | state  | role      | version | …

START GROUP_REPLICATION can now take recovery credentials as parameters

From MySQL 8.0.21 onwards, START GROUP_REPLICATION includes new options which allow a user to specify credentials to be used for distributed recovery. You can now pass credentials when invoking START GROUP_REPLICATION instead of setting them when configuring the group_replication_recovery channel.

START GROUP_REPLICATION command now has the options:

  • USER: User name.

Group Replication SYSTEM messages in the error log

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.…

Specify Recovery IP Addresses in Group Replication

Group Replication distributed recovery is one of the key features and until now it was restricted to be executed over one mysql connection point automatically defined on mysql system variables port and host.

With group_replication_recovery_endpoints we can specify through which interfaces can group replication recovery take place for a given member so that it controls where recovery traffic flows in the network infrastructure.…

MySQL Group Replication – Default response to network partitions has changed

MySQL Group Replication allows you to create an highly-available replication group of servers with minimum effort. It provides automated mechanisms to detect and respond to failures in the members of the group. The response depends on the characteristics of each failure and it is configurable.…

You Can Now Use Binary Log Checksums with 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.…
