Group Replication: A member in “RECOVERING” state is part of the primary partition

If you are using MySQL InnoDB Cluster (Group Replication) with ProxySQL, you should be familiar with the 2 functions and 1 view required in SYS Schema that ProxySQL uses to see if a node is online, partitioned or not, and if it’s lagging or not (see link1 and link2).

I received recently a very valuable contribution from Bruce DeFrang that fixes a bug in one of the function that were added to SYS.

In fact, Bruce discovered that when a node was in RECOVERING state, it was not …

Fun with Bugs #74 - On MySQL Bug Reports I am Subscribed to, Part XI

For some reason the Committee of FOSDEM 2019 MySQL, MariaDB & Friends Devroom of all my talks submitted picked up the one on how to create a useful MySQL bug report, so I have no options but continue to write about MySQL bugs, as long and MySQL Community wants and even prefers to listen and read about them... That's what I do, with pleasure.

Today I'll continue my series of posts about community bug reports I am subscribed to with the review of bugs reported since October 1, 2018, starting from the oldest and skipping those MySQL 8 regression ones I've already commented on:

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 …

Fun with Bugs #73 - On MySQL Bug Reports I am Subscribed to, Part X

It's time to continue my review of MySQL bug reports that I considered interesting for some reason recently. I had not got any notable reaction from Oracle engineers to my previous post about recent regression bugs in MySQL 8.0.13, so probably this topic is not really that hot. In this boring post I'll just review some bugs I've subscribed to since August that are still not closed, starting from the oldest.

Let me start with a couple of bug reports that remain "Open":

  • Bug #91959 - "UBSAN: signed integer overflow in lock_update_trx_age". It's really unusual to see bug reported by …

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

As you know, MySQL InnoDB Cluster is a High Availability solution for MySQL. However more and more people are trying to use it as a Disaster Recovery solution with 2 data centers. Natively, this is not yet supported. But it’s already possible to realize such setup if we agree with the following points:

  •  a human interaction is required in case of Disaster Recovery which, by my own experience, is often acceptable
  • a human interaction is required if the any Primary-Master acting as asynchronous slave leaves its group  (crash, network problem, …) or becomes secondary

These are not big constraints and it’s relatively easily to deal with them.

The Architecture

The situation is as follow:

  • 2 data centers (one active, one inactive, only used for disaster recovery)
  • 2 MySQL InnoDB Clusters (one in each DC)
  • 3 members in each …

MySQL Memory Consumption and Open Prepare Statements

Today I read the nice post of Bhuvanesh on the memory leak issue they experienced with MySQL. In fact when you read the post, you realize that MySQL was just following the parameters that were setup (the default of max_prepare_stmt_count is 16382 even on 5.6).

I’m still convinced that the problem should be resolved in the application even if the use of ProxySQL for multiplexing is great.

In MySQL 8.0, we have enabled the …

MySQL: when will the password of my users expire ?

Has you may already know, in MySQL it is possible to set an expiration period for passwords.

It’s not always obvious to see when the password will expire. And most of the time if you don’t pay much attention you will get something like this:

ERROR 1820 (HY000): You must reset your password using
ALTER USER statement before executing this statement.

Let me share you a small query that check for how long your password is still valid in case it was created with an expiration delay or if the global default_password_lifetime is set on …

Innotop for MySQL 8.0

Recently, I did some maintenance on Innotop and I merged several pull requests including one to support MySQL 8.0 (thank you yoku0825 for the contribution).

As you know, Innotop is written in Perl and to be able to use it with MySQL 8.0, you need to have Perl DBD for MySQL compatible with MySQL 8.0 too (a driver that support the new default authentication plugin, caching_sha2_password).

If you are using Fedora 29, I created such package and you can download it here: …

On Some Recent MySQL Optimizer Bugs

Yet another topic I missed in my blog post on problematic MySQL features back in July is MySQL optimizer. Unlike with XA transactions, it was done in purpose, as known bugs, limitations and deficiencies of MySQL optimizer is a topic for a series of blog posts if not a separate blog. At the moment the list of known active bug reports in optimize category consists of …
