Recovering nodes in a Galera Cluster

In our lab environment, we received some emails from our provider, DigitalOcean saying a few nodes would be going down, because of issues with the physical nodes. Since we run a 9-node Galera Cluster in the lab, across 3 regions (San Francisco, London and Singapore), this posed an interesting problem!


Upon connecting to one of the nodes, we see:

mysql> show status like 'wsrep_cluster_size';
+--------------------+-------+
| Variable_name      | Value |
+--------------------+-------+
| wsrep_cluster_size | 7     |
+--------------------+-------+
1 row in set (0.02 sec)

So we know that 2 of the nodes are down. Presuming you do not have any monitoring setup (might we recommend …

Get upgrading from MySQL 5.7 to MySQL 8.0

An inordinate amount of our Galera Cluster customer base is still using the MySQL 5.7 variant of Galera Cluster. Besides not being able to have access to all the new features of the Galera 4 library, MySQL 5.7 is rapidly reaching End of Life (EOL) status in October 2023. This is less than six months away, and it is also why we would like to focus on getting our users upgraded to MySQL 8.0 with Galera Cluster.

Firstly, MySQL 8 has been Generally Available (GA) since 19 April 2018. That is a whole five years, and you must by now, already know that there is a new release model, where there are new features included in minor releases. The release notes are a must read. Next, Codership released Galera Cluster 4 with MySQL 8 with MySQL 8.0.19, on …

Adding a node to your existing Galera Cluster

A common question we get is: can I add a node to my Galera Cluster without restarting the entire cluster? The simple answer is YES.

A lot worry about the fact that you do list servers that are part of the cluster within your my.cnf, and this file is not reloadable in a dynamic fashion. Fret not, though, because as long as your my.cnf has one active cluster member (the DONOR), you can have it be the JOINER.

If for example, you have 3 nodes: galera1: 159.223.105.21 galera2: 137.184.78.182 galera3: 137.184.65.171

The my.cnf line for wsrep_address should read as follows:

wsrep_cluster_address="gcomm://159.223.105.21,137.184.78.182,137.184.65.171"

It is then trivial for you to have your fourth server (say, galera4: 161.35.120.111), have a my.cnf that reads as follows:

wsrep_cluster_address="gcomm://159.223.105.21,137.184.78.182,137.184.65.171,161.35.120.111"

Now, …
