MariaDB OpenWorks was an ocean of Galera Cluster activity

MariaDB OpenWorks happened February 25-27 2019 in New York City, and it was filled with a lot of activity.

The keynote by Michael Howard is an interesting watch, one with many quoted articles especially around “strip-mining open source technologies and companies,” and “abusing the license and privilege, and not giving back to the community.” Many articles were written about this topic, and it is clear that open source has arrived considering all the success around the IBM acquisition of Red Hat, the Elastic IPO, the Microsoft acquisition of GitHub, the SalesForce acquisition fo MuleSoft and the MongoDB IPO.

UNDERSTANDING MySQL CLIENT / SERVER PROTOCOL USING PYTHON AND WIRESHARK – PART 1

MySQL Client / Server protocol is used in many areas. For example:

  • MySQL Connectors like ConnectorC, ConnectorJ and etc.
  • MySQL proxy
  • Between master and slave

What is MySQL Client / Server protocol?

MySQL Client / Server protocol is accepted conventions (rules). Through these rules client and server “talks” and understand each other. Client connects to server through TCP connection with special socket, sends to server special packets and accepts them from server. There are two phases of this connection:

  • Connection phase
  • Command phase

Next illustration describes phases:

STRUCTURE OF PACKETS

Each packet consists of valuable data types. Maximum length of each packet can be 16MB. If the length of packet is more than 16MB, then it is separated into several chunks (16MB). First of all let’s see the protocol data types. …

Enterprises choose Galera Cluster. Read why.

“Our three megastores’ and webshop’s combined revenue was 432 million euros in the year 2017. Galera Cluster has been the cornerstone of the system, secured our sales and supported our growth.”

“MySQL master/slave setup was just too fragile and needed regular work to fix each time the slave got out of sync. Now with Galera we’ve found that even if we take a node offline for a while, it re-syncs automatically and without intervention.”

“The big plus is that all nodes have exact the same information, and no node is running for even a fraction of a second behind. This will also mean that no information will be lost!”
