Setting up MySQL Monitoring With New Relic Infrastructure Pro

If you have a New Relic Infrastructure Pro license, and unmonitored MySQL servers, there’s now an easy solution at your fingertips. With the New Relic MySQL integration you can monitor and graph almost any detailed metric you could possibly want. New Relic recently unified its analytics tools with New Relic One, a dashboard that provides quick access to all the New Relic tools. With an Infrastructure Pro subscription, you get access to:

How We Partitioned Airbnb’s Main Database in Two Weeks

“Scaling = replacing all components of a car while driving it at 100mph”

– Mike Krieger, Instagram Co-founder @ Airbnb OpenAir 2015

Airbnb peak traffic grows at a rate of 3.5x per year, with a seasonal summer peak.

Heading into the 2015 summer travel season, the infrastructure team at Airbnb was hard at work scaling our databases to handle the expected record summer traffic. One particularly impactful project aimed to partition certain tables by application function onto their own database, which typically would require a significant engineering investment in the form of application layer changes, data migration, and robust testing to guarantee data consistency with minimal downtime. In an attempt to save weeks of …

Licensing Oracle in a public cloud: the CPU calculation impact

First of all a disclaimer: I don’t work for Oracle nor do I speak for them. I believe this information to be correct, but for licensing questions, Oracle themselves have the final word.

With that out of the way, followers of this blog may have seen some of the results from my testing of actual CPU capacity with public clouds like Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure, and Google Compute Engine. In each of these cases, a CPU “core” was actually measured to be equivalent to an x86 HyperThread, or half a physical core. So when provisioning public cloud resources, it’s important to include twice as many CPU cores as the equivalent …

Cloudflare, now offering to be your Single Point of Failure

There have been many articles about the downtime issue with Cloudflare last week, so I won’t get into the technical details of that. However, there’s the fine print to remember. Consider this a subtle reminder that core Internet infrastructure services like Cloudflare’s DNS-based “Always Online” caching and packet inspection security services do not come with Service Level Agreements even at the “Pro” account level. Even with a Pro account you are paying for a service with no uptime guarantee and you must only hope that it resolves your sites the majority of the time. This is fine, this is what the contract says: no SLA unless you pay for the Business account. An odd naming convention given that most Professionals are using their websites for business and would want the SLA, but I digress.

So, the SLA is not really the issue if you look at the architectural alternatives to building an architecture that desires availability when …

Building a MySQL Private Cloud: Step 1

Building clusters is usually a fun time. Here’s one of my setups at the Equinix LAX1 facility that is being used for VPN services, OpenVZ clustering, and general RADIUS and MySQL clustering integration. Once the clustering design is finalized, it’s still in flux state while I try out different setups, I’ll post some physical+logical architecture diagrams to show “How to Build a Fault Tolerant Infrastructure for Virtualized MySQL NDB Cluster + Python-based VPN systems.” Stay tuned for more.

Got open source cloud storage? Red Hat buys Gluster

Red Hat’s $136m acquisition of open source storage vendor Gluster marks Red Hat’s biggest buy since JBoss and starts the fourth quarter with a very intersting deal. The acquisition is definitely good for Red Hat since it bolsters its Cloud Forms IaaS and OpenShift PaaS technology and strategy with storage, which is often the starting point for enterprise and service provider cloud computing deployments. The acquisition also gives Red Hat another weapon in its fight against VMware, Microsoft and others, including OpenStack, of which Gluster is a member (more on that further down). The deal is also good for Gluster given the sizeable price Red Hat is paying for the provider of open source, software-based, scale-out storage for unstructured data and also as validation of both open source and software in today’s IT and cloud computing storage.
