How to Benchmark Replication Performance in MySQL

In this blog, I will cover important aspects which you need to test when benchmarking replication setup. MySQL has great tools that could be used to test its performance. They include:

sysbench – https://github.com/akopytov/sysbench

BMK-kit – http://dimitrik.free.fr/blog/posts/mysql-perf-bmk-kit.html

mysqlslap – https://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/8.0/en/mysqlslap.html

LinkBench – https://github.com/facebookarchive/linkbench

I will not describe how to use them here, as you can find instructions on the provided links or in the Percona blog by browsing tags …

MySQL Books: Efficient MySQL Performance

Today, the book I would like to recommend is Efficient MySQL Performance – Best Practices and Techniques, Daniel Nichter, O’Reilly, 2021.

I participated (just a bit) in the writing of this book as technical reviewer with Vadim and Fipar. I really enjoyed that role of carefully reading the early drafts of the chapters Daniel was writing.

Although Daniel says the book is not for the experts, I think even experts will enjoy it because several key InnoDB concepts are also covered. You can see that I refer to the book often in my A graph a day, keeps the doctor away ! series on monitoring and trending.

If you’re looking for information on transaction isolation and undo logs, fuzzy checkpointing, etc… you’ll find …

Triggering Replication Lag for Testing a Script

I am currently working on a script to auto-enable parallel replication / multi-threaded replication (MTR) when there is replication lag.  For testing this script, I need to trigger replication lag that would disappear after enabling MTR.  I came-up with a simple solution for that, and I thought it could be useful to more people, so I am writing this blog post about it.  Read-on for the details.

Face to Face with Semi-Synchronous Replication

Last month I performed a review of the Percona Operator for MySQL Server which is still Alpha.  That operator is based on Percona Server for MySQL and uses standard asynchronous replication, with the option to activate semi-synchronous replication to gain higher levels of data consistency between nodes. 

The whole solution is composed as:

Additionally, Orchestrator (https://github.com/openark/orchestrator) is used to manage the topology and the settings to enable on the replica nodes, the semi-synchronous flag if required. While we have not too much to say when using standard Asynchronous replication, I want to write a few words on the needs …

Readable MultiAZ Cluster with AWS RDS MySQL under the hood.

Amazon Web Services (AWS) very recently(March 02, 2022) announced the GA of its new RDS feature “Readable standby with Multi-AZ deployments” for MySQL. Yes !! you heard it right you can now use the standby instances created with Multi-AZ deployments for failover as well as for Read-scaling starting with version 8.0.26 and later for MySQL in RDS

Launching a MultiAZ Cluster

Now let us see how to launch this readable-Multi AZ cluster?

Region Availability: As this is a new feature now it is currently limited to the regions US-EAST-1 (N.Virginia), US-WEST-1 (Oregon), and EU-WEST-1 (Ireland), this list would be extended progressively

VPC requirement:

Before launching the instance, you should have SUBNET created for 3 AZ(Availability Zone) within the VPC since the cluster instances would be spawn across 3AZ by default

Hereunder the “Engine Option” …

Crashing MySQL with Malicious Intent and a lot of Determination

A year ago, I blogged about An Unprivileged User can crash your MySQL Server.  At the time, I explained how to protect yourself against this problem.  A few weeks ago, I revisited this vulnerability in a follow-up post in which I explained the fix, claimed that the MySQL 5.7 default configuration for Group Replication is still problematic, and explained a tuning to avoid the vulnerability.  In

Follow-up on an Unprivileged User can Crash your MySQL Server

A year ago, I blogged about An Unprivileged User can Crash your MySQL Server.  At the time, I presented how to protect yourself against this problem without explaining how to generate a crash.  In this post, I am revisiting this vulnerability, not giving the exploit yet, but presenting the fix.  Also, because the default configuration of Group Replication in 5.7 is still vulnerable (it is not in

Migration from Percona XtraDB Cluster/Galera to MySQL InnoDB Cluster in 10 steps

MySQL InnoDB Cluster is the official High Availability solution for and from MySQL.

MySQL InnoDB Cluster is composed by MySQL Server, MySQL Group Replication, MySQL Router and MySQL Shell.

Before InnoDB Cluster there was no standard solution for MySQL Availability and many custom solutions were used (some better than the others). But there was a good solution using some similar principles of MySQL Group Replication: Galera.

Now that MySQL InnoDB Cluster is mature and easier to orchestrate than galera, I receive a lot of requests on how to migrate from Galera (or Percona XtraDB Cluster) to MySQL InnoDB Cluster.

I already wrote some time ago an article on this process: how to migrate from Galera to MySQL Group Replication.

In this article we will see how we can migrate from Percona XtraDB …

2 many dots can break your replication only once

Two or more dots in your relay log or binary log names can break replication; but worry not, it will only do it once. If you request to start again, it will work. That’s it, that’s the blog. Should you choose to spend some more time, go ahead. A new MySQL 5.7 GTID replication chain […]

Replicate from GTID disabled source to GTID enabled replica directly

MySQL 8.0.23 introduces a new feature that makes replication possible from a source server that has been configured without Global Transaction Identifiers (GTIDs) to a replica server configured with GTIDs. This can be achieved by configuring replication channels to use the parameter ASSIGN_GTIDS_TO_ANONYMOUS_TRANSACTIONS with the CHANGE REPLICATION SOURCE command.…
