#DBHangOps 03/05/15 -- Group Replication, Multithreaded Replication, and more!
Join in #DBHangOps this Thursday, March, 05, 2015 at 11:00am pacific (19:00 GMT), to participate in the discussion about:
- Group Replication
- Multithreaded Replication
- Operational learnings with GTID
- New MySQL 5.7 defaults from Morgan Tocker
You can check out the event page at https://plus.google.com/events/cjbmf109r6d7isr715iupigsrq4 on Thursday to participate.
As always, you can still watch the #DBHangOps twitter search, the @DBHangOps twitter feed, or this blog post to get a link for the google hangout on Thursday!
See all of you on Thursday!
You can catch a livestream at:
- MySQL 5.7 and MariaDB support true multi-threaded replication
- MySQL 5.6 has a dependency on needing different schemas for replication to be parallel
- statements are issue concurrently in the master and are grouped when written to the binary log
- statements within the same schema can be issued in parallel as well
- When things are committed together on the master, how do we guarantee they're committed the same on the slave?
- How do things change for operators?
SHOW SLAVE STATUS should be the same, but can you interpret it the same?
Seconds_Behind_Master field is set based on the timestamp in the binary log, so that should still reflect the state of the statement's last executed
STOP SLAVE may be a little slower because you need to wait for in flight transactions to wrap up.
- In MySQL prior to 5.7.5, transactions can be out of order so shorter transactions may be favored first.
- Tools like pt-heartbeat will work differently here because the heartbeat statements can commit before other larger transactions.
- What is group replication?
- multi-master update everywhere replication plugin!
- provides group membership, conflict detection, and distributed recovery
- will also replicate up new nodes automatically
- InnoDB/MySQL look and feel!
- Allows clients to connect to multiple servers in a topology and trust that their write makes it to all servers
- registers listeners to serve events
- decoupled from server core
- reuses trueted replication code base
- Binary log statements are injected into relay log for transactions coming from other servers
- Plugin is responsible for:
- conflit detection
- distributed recovery (e.g. membership changes, providing state of transactions, collecting state of transactions)
- InnoDB only for now
- Concurrent DDLs are not supported
- Requires PK on all tables
- Requires GTIDs to be enabled
- Limited transaction payload size
- Hotspotting for transactions having a higher chance to fail
- To alleviate, run these transactions on the same node
- Better suited for low-latency, high-bandwidth network
- Every member of a Group Replication topology has the same full set of data
- As a result, you probably won't have hundreds of machines (costly to keep in sync). Dozens is a possiblity
- This is different than semi-synchronous replication because it's N<->M master replication.
- Competing technologies
- This is comparable to Galera replication
- This could be a replacement for Galera that's out of the box with MySQL
- Great for environments with an elasticity requirement
- Data hotspotting with Group Replication
- Counters can be hot spots. If this is a problem, send these statements to the same node potentially.
