dbdeployer community: Part 3 - MySQL Cluster (NDB)

I remember wanting to create MySQL Cluster sandboxes several years ago. By then, however, MySQL-Sandbox technology was not flexible enough to allow an easy inclusion, and the cluster software itself was not as easy to install as it is today. Thus, I kept postponing the implementation, until I started working with dbdeployer.

I included the skeleton of support for MySQL Cluster since the beginning (by keeping a range of ports dedicated for this technology, but I didn’t do anything until June 2018, when I made public my intentions to add support for NDB in dbdeployer with issue #20 (Add support for MySQL Cluster)). The issue had just a bare idea, but I needed help from someone, as my expertise with …

MySQL and PHP Basics Part I

I have had some requests to write some blogs on the basics of using PHP and MySQL together.  This will not be a series for the experienced as it will start at a level where I will go into a lot of details but expect very few prerequisites from the reader.  If this is not you, please move on. If it is you and you read something you do not understand, please contact me to show me where I assumed too much.

PHP and MySQL are both in their mid twenties and both vital in the worlds of developers.  With the big improvements in PHP 7 and MySQL 8, I have found a lot of developers flocking to both but stymied by the examples they see as their are many details not explained. So let's get to the explaining!
1. Use the latest software
If you are not using PHP 7.2 or 7.3 (or maybe 7.1) then you are missing out in features and performance.  The PHP 5.x series is deprecated, no longer support, and …

MySQL Replication Setup
  • Replication used to replicate data from the Master node to a slave node[Replica].
  • By default Replication is asynchronous.
  • It uses binary logs for reading data from the Master node and relay log on slave[Replica].
  • Depending on the configuration, you can replicate all databases, selected databases, or even selected tables within a database.

Replication Methods:

  • File-based Replication:

The traditional method is based on replicating events from the master’s binary log, and requires the log files and positions in them to be synchronized between master and slave.

  • GTID Replication:

The newer method based on global transaction identifiers (GTIDs) is transactional and therefore does not require working with log files or positions within …

MySQL 5.7 Binary install on Linux

In Generic binary Installation method, we are extracting compressed tar files of MySQL and later we can do customization for MySQL setup as per our requirement. Like having different data directory, log directory etc.

MySQL Generic Binaries can be used to install MySQL on Unix/Linux platforms.

MySQL Installation has a dependency on the libaio library. Make sure that is there on a server before mysql install.

  • Create a mysql user and group, which we will use as a service account for the mysql server.

shell> groupadd mysql

shell> useradd -r -g mysql -s /bin/false mysql

  • Extract MySQL binaries TAR to mysql base directory for example in /mysql dir

  • Create require directories and set appropriate permissions.

shell> cd mysql

Miami and Santo Domingo with MySQL Document Store

The next two weeks are a big change for me compared to the last two weeks.  The last two weeks I was in Belgium and now I am in Miami before heading to the Dominican Republic.  The one thing in common is that I am speaking on the MySQL Document Store.

SunshinePHP has become a favorite conference for many PHP developers for many reasons and this morning I will be running a three hour tutorial on using the PECL MySQL X DevAPI and the MySQL Document Store with PHP and then have a one hour talk later in the show. Plus I am joined by the amazing Kathy Forte who will speak on Driving Innovation With MySQL 8.0 and Docker.

Pycaribbean is a new show hoping to foster a growing developer community into the area.  And i will be showing how to use the MySQL Document Store with Python.

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 …

MySQL High Availability Framework Explained – Part II

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 MySQL semisynchronous replication configuration, the master …
