Multi-master with MariaDB 10 – a tutorial

The goal of this tutorial is to show you how to use multi-master to aggregate databases with the same name, but different data from different masters, on the same slave.

Example :

  • master1 => a French subsidiary
  • master2 => a British subsidiary

Both have the same database PRODUCTION but the data are totally different.

 

This screenshot is made from my own monitoring tool: PmaControl. You have to read 10.10.16.232 on master2 and not 10.10.16.235.
The fault of my admin system! :p)

We will start with three servers—2 masters and 1 slave—you can add more masters if needed. For this tutorial, I used Ubuntu 12.04. I’ll let you choose the right procedure for your distribution from Downloads.
