MySQL TDE: Online key store migration

So, if we’re applying GDPR to our system, and we’re already making use of MySQL Transparent Data Encryption / keyring, then here’s an example on how to migrate from filed-based keyring to the encrypted keyring. Online.

If you’re looking to go deeper into the TDE then I suggest reading the MySQL Server Team’s InnoDB Transparent Tablespace Encryption blog.

You’d already have your environment running, whereas I have to create one.. give me a minute please, 8.0.12 here we come:

mysqld --defaults-file=my_okv.cnf --initialize-insecure --user=khollman
mysqld --defaults-file=my_okv.cnf --user=khollman &

Authenticating MySQL 8.0 (Enterprise) against active directory

Recently our team was tasked to implement MySQL 8.0 in production for a client. While MySQL 8.0 is looking very promising and has a lot of cool new features and revamped old features, it’s still pretty young. The MySQL development team is working very hard on stabilizing the product but, reading the latest release notes for version 8.0.12, it is still very much a bugfix release and not something you will want to put in production immediately. Also, given the fact that a lot of tools such as Percona Xtrabackup do not support MySQL 8.0 yet, we were a bit reluctant to proceed with this idea. But … the client had a strong use case to make use of roles and resource groups and we like challenges so we decided to give it a go.

Another use case that was presented is the one where …

A small dive into the MySQL 8.0 X-DevAPI

Introduction

What is the X-DevApi? From insidemysql.com there is a definition of the X-DevAPI and its features in the following paragraphs:

The X DevAPI is the common client-side API used by all connectors to abstract the details of the X Protocol. It specifies the common set of CRUD-style functions/methods used by all the official connectors to work with both document store collections and relational tables, a common expression language to establish query properties such as criteria, projections, aliases, and a standard set of additional database management features for handling things like transactions, indexes, etc.

The fact that most of these features share the same format and API between connectors, makes the X DevAPI a perfect fit for modern polyglot development environments such as microservices, and the fact that they are based on a …

Technical considerations

Are they syntactically similar? Where do these two databases differ? Why would I use one over the other?

MariaDB 10.3 is on the path of gradually diverging from MySQL 8.0. One obvious example is the internal data dictionary currently under development for MySQL 8.0. This is a major change to the way metadata is stored and used within the server, and MariaDB doesn’t have an equivalent feature. Implementing this feature could mark the end of datafile-level compatibility between …

Using MySQL Shell 8.0.11 “upgrade checker” to upgrade from MySQL 5.7 to MySQL 8.0 successfully

We are really excited about MySQL 8.0 new features (https://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/8.0/en/mysql-nutshell.html) and our consultants spend several hours weekly, testing new features and doing research on how best we can create value for our customers from having those in production. Being an pure-play MySQL consulting, support and remote DBA services company, We are fully accountable for our customer database infrastructure operations performance, scalability, high availability and reliability.  As we are aggressive about gaining maximum results from MySQL 8 investments made by our customers, We are equally conservative (our customer data reliability is critical for us !)  on adopting new features, until we are fully confident after several rounds of testing (at different scales on multiple platforms) and technical review (we engage both internal and …

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 …

MySQL 8.0 Data Dictionary

We are all familiar with “.frm” files since the earliest days of MySQL, The community has been continuously requesting for replacement of file-system based metadata for several good reasons, So with MySQL 8.0 “.frm” files are gone for ever, Going forward MySQL stores table metadata in the data dictionary tables which uses InnoDB storage engine. This blog is about MySQL 8.0 data dictionary and how it creates value for MySQL going forward:

How file based metadata management used to work in the past (before MySQL 8.0) ? 

  • Every table in MySQL will have corresponding .frm file, This .frm file stores information like column names and data-types in the binary format, In addition to the .frm file, there are .trn, .trg and .par files to support triggers, trigger namespace and partitioning .

What are major bottlenecks faced due to the usage of file based metadata management …

The first impression of MySQL 8 system variable innodb_dedicated_server

We manage several hundreds of MySQL servers, We carefully benchmark and build custom database infrastructure operations for performance, scalability, availability and reliability … But What if we have provision for auto sizing of MySQL system variables innodb_buffer_pool_size, innodb_log_file_sizeand innodb_flush_method ? Actually, These are top 3 system variables we consider tuning for MySQL performance and when we first read about this feature, we got super excited so did some research and decided to write this post:

What was our first reaction, when we first read about innodb_dedicated_server ?

Wow, That will be awesome … Indeed, When we manage several hundreds of MySQL instances, This feature will really improve efficiency and DBA Ops. governance.

Now, Let us explain what we have found:

How does innodb_dedicated_server system variable in MySQL 8.0 size the following …
