Perform Complex Online Schema Changes on MySQL / MariaDB / Percona Server Leveraging Tungsten Clustering

Background The Skinny

Performing schema changes often requires extended downtime for applications. This is due to MySQL needing to rebuild tables for common schema change operations. Tools like pt-online-schema-change have been written to try to overcome the downtime associated with schema changes, however they are complex and put a high load on the database. Amazon’s Aurora improves some schema changes operations, but still requires a table rebuild for common operations like adding a column using before or after, or simply to add a column with a default value. Rebuilding a table with millions of rows can take hours and prevent writes to that table the entire time.

Using MySQL Shell to create a three-node MySQL InnoDB Cluster

MySQL InnoDB Cluster was introduced in MySQL version 5.7 and consists of three parts – Group Replication, MySQL Shell and MySQL Router. MySQL InnoDB Cluster provides a complete high availability solution for MySQL. In this post, I am going to explain how to setup a three-node cluster using the MySQL Shell.

Adding a replicated MySQL database instance using a Group Replication server as the source

You say you want a Replication?

One of the best features of MySQL is the ability to use MySQL‘s built-in database replication feature to automatically replicate data from one server (source/master) to another (slave/replica). Group Replication was added in MySQL 5.7 as a way to provide a high-availability solution using a new variation of MySQL replication.

(In some earlier posts, I explained how to setup Group Replication using three MySQL database servers and how to …

MariaDB OpenWorks was an ocean of Galera Cluster activity

MariaDB OpenWorks happened February 25 – 27, 2019 in New York City. It was filled with plenty of activity.

The keynote by Michael Howard, C.E.O. of MariaDB, 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’s clear that open-source has arrived considering all of the success around the IBM acquisition of Red Hat, the Elastic I.P.O., the Microsoft acquisition of GitHub, the SalesForce acquisition fo MuleSoft and the MongoDB I.P.O.

Seppo Jaakola, the C.E.O. of Codership, talked about …

MySQL Tutorial – Understanding The Seconds Behind Master Value

In a MySQL hosting replication setup, the parameter Seconds_Behind_Master (SBM), as displayed by the SHOW SLAVE STATUS command, is commonly used as an indication of the current replication lag of the slave. In this blog post, we examine how to understand and interpret this value in various situations.

Possible Values of  Seconds Behind Master

The value of SBM, as explained in the  MySQL documentation, depends on the state of the MySQL slave in general, and the states of MySQL slave SQL_THREAD and IO_THREAD in particular. While IO_THREAD connects with the master and reads the updates, SQL_THREAD applies these updates on the slave. Let’s examine the possible values of SBM during different states of the MySQL Slave.

When SBM Value is Null

  • SBM is …

How to manually decrypt an encrypted binary log file

The encrypted binary log file format introduced in MySQL version 8.0.14 was designed to allow a “manual” decryption of the file data when the value of the key that encrypted its file password is known.

Each encrypted binary (or relay) log file is composed by an encrypted binary log file header and the encrypted binary log content (the file data).…

Binary log encryption at rest

Starting in version 8.0.14, MySQL server can encrypt all new binary and relay log files on disk. In order to do so, you just need to enable the new binlog_encryption option (and also ensure that you have a keyring).…

MySQL High Availability Framework Explained – Part II: Semisynchronous Replication

In Part I, we introduced a High Availability (HA) framework for MySQL hosting and discussed various components and their functionality. Now in Part II, we will discuss the details of MySQL semisynchronous replication and the related configuration settings that help us ensure redundancy and consistency of the data in our HA setup. Make sure to check back in for Part III where we will review various failure scenarios that could arise and the way the framework responds and recovers from these conditions.

What is MySQL Semisynchronous Replication?

Simply put, in a …
