Is Galera trx_commit=2 and sync_binlog=0 evil?

It has been almost 5 years since I posted on my personal MySQL related blog. In the past few years I have worked for Severalnines and blogging both on their corporate blog and here would be confusing. After that I forgot and neglected this blog a bit, but it’s time to revive this blog!

Speaking at Percona Live Europe – Amsterdam 2019

Why? I will be presenting at Percona Live Europe soon and this blog and upcoming content is the more in-depth part of some background stories in my talk on benchmarking: Benchmarking should never be optional. The talk will mainly cover why you should always benchmark your servers, clusters and entire systems.

If you wish to see me present, you can receive 20% discount using this code: CMESPEAK-ART. Now let’s move on to the real …

Comparing Replication Technologies for MySQL Clustering: Part 1

Overview The Skinny

Clustering provides high availability and disaster recovery, along with the ability to read-scale both locally and globally. Some clusters even provide active/active capabilities, which others have a single master.

Real time database replication is a must for clustering and other key business purposes, like reporting. There are a number of replication technologies available for MySQL, and some are even bundled into various solutions. When choosing a replication methodology, it is paramount to understand just how the data moves from source to target. In this blog post, we will examine how asynchronous, synchronous, and “semi-synchronous” replication behave when used for clustering. Also, we will explore …

Addressing common challenges when scaling out MySQL horizontally

When we explore strategies to scale our MySQL-based database layer, we realize that there are many different options. As opposed to proprietary solutions, open-source products nourish themselves from their communities and novel architectures or enhanced versions are generated, often incorporating other open source technologies. MySQL is not an exception.

Other players build completely different engines aiming to mitigate some of MySQL well-known weaknesses, but still support its wire protocol, with the challenge of sacrificing as little compatibility as possible.

In this white paper, we briefly discuss the scale-up vs scale-out dilemma, to then review the different scale-out strategies. We are also going to go over some of the most common MySQL architectures and products with horizontal scaling in mind.

Finally, we will share some guidelines to …

How to Test MySQL Server Hostname with ProxySQL Multiplexing

Overview

While working on a MySQL Galera cluster with ProxySQL, I was in the process of testing traffic going to the MySQL nodes by using the @@hostname command to ensure which MySQL host behind the proxy the query ran on. This was important as my client is using query rules to route traffic according to the rule to either the master or the slave.  But to my surprise, I didn’t always get the result that I was expecting.  This is where ProxySQL multiplexing comes into play.

Scenario

In my scenario, I was on a test server connecting to ProxySQL which was then routing my queries to the MySQL Galera nodes.  I would connect into ProxySQL using the MySQL client.

Important note: When testing query routing with ProxySQL using comments and the MySQL client, you have to use the “-c” command line option in order for the comment to not be stripped away when running queries.  You …

Debian 10 released with MariaDB 10.3

The Debian project announced their 15th release, code name Buster, on July 6th 2019. Debian 10 ships with MariaDB 10.3 and Galera. There is no separate MariaDB Connector C package, but instead MariaDB 10.3 includes MariaDB Connector C 3.0. Like most other popular Linux distributions, Debian prefers MariaDB over the Oracle owned alternative and this […]

The post Debian 10 released with MariaDB 10.3 appeared first on MariaDB.org.

Running Galera Cluster effectively on Amazon Web Services (AWS) and comparing it to RDS and Aurora (EMEA and USA webinar)

Do you want to run Galera Cluster in the cloud? Why not learn to setup a 3-node Galera Cluster using Amazon Web Services (AWS) Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2), and run it yourself (3-node because this is the minimum preferred size; you can have a 5, 7, or 9 node cluster too — not in the demo though!). In this webinar, we will cover the steps to do this, with a demonstration of how easy it is for you to do. We will also cover how you may want to load balance traffic to your Galera Cluster using a proxy like ProxySQL.

In addition, we will cover why you may want to run a 3-node (or more) Galera Cluster (multi-master synchronous clusters) instead of (or in addition to) using Amazon Relational Database Service (RDS) MySQL, which has the ability to have asynchronous replication (Read Replicas), and High Availability provided by DRBD (Multi-AZ). We will also cover where Galera Cluster differs from Amazon Aurora RDS for MySQL.

Join us and …

Blog from the Top — The Changing Landscape of Open Source (MySQL) and Money

This is the first in a series of blog articles in which I will discuss the changing landscape of open source and money. Or, more specifically, open source databases and money. And even more specifically MySQL and its all variants (AWS Aurora, MariaDB, Percona Server, RDS/MySQL) and money. But before going too deep into what is changing, let’s review all the traditional business models in and around the MySQL marketplace.

In general, these are the following types of companies in the MySQL commercial ecosystem, sorted by total annual revenue and addressable market size:

  • Developers who do not aim to monetize the open source code, just provide value to others and hope to get development and other contributions in return. This is the purest form of open source. For example, all …
