In this blog post, we’ll look at the actions and efforts Percona experts took to scale Percona XtraDB Cluster.Introduction
When we first started analyzing Percona XtraDB Cluster performance, it was pretty bad. We would see contention even with 16 threads. Performance was even worse with sync binlog=1, although the same pattern was observed even with the binary log disabled. The effect was not only limited to OLTP workloads, as even other workloads (like update-key/non-key) were also affected in a wider sense than OLTP.
That’s when we started analyzing the contention issues and found multiple problems. We will discuss all these problems and the solutions we adapted. But before that, let’s look at the current performance level.
Check this blog post for more details.
The good news is Percona XtraDB Cluster is now optimized to scale well for all scenarios, and the gain is in the range of 3x-10x.Understanding How MySQL Commits a Transaction
Percona XtraDB Cluster contention is associated mainly with Commit Monitor contention, which comes into the picture during commit time. It is important to understand the context around it.
When a commit is invoked, it proceeds in two phases:
Monitors help maintain transaction ordering. For example, the Commit Monitor ensures that no transaction with a global-seqno greater than the current commit-processing transaction’s global seqno is allowed to proceed.How Percona XtraDB Cluster Commits a Transaction
Percona XtraDB Cluster follows the existing MySQL semantics of course, but has its own step to commit the transaction in the replication world. There are two important themes:
Let’s understand the commit flow with Percona XtraDB Cluster involved (Percona XtraDB Cluster registers wsrep as an additional storage engine for replication).
With that understanding, let’s look at the problems and solutions:PROBLEM-1:
Commit Monitor is exercised such that the complete commit operation is serialized. This limits the parallelism associated with the prepare-stage. With log-bin enabled, this is still ok since redo logs are flushed at group-commit flush-stage (starting with 5.7). But if log-bin is disabled, then each commit causes an independent redo-log-flush (in turn probable fsync).OPTIMIZATION-1:
Split the replication pre-commit hook into two explicit actions: replicate (add write-set to group-channel) + pre-commit (enter commit-monitor).
The replicate action is performed just like before (as part of storage engine prepare). That will help complete the InnoDB prepare action in parallel (exploring much-needed parallelism in REDO flush with log-bin disabled).
On completion of replication, the pre-commit hook is called. That leads to entering the Commit Monitor for enforcing the commit ordering of the transactions. (Note: Replication action assigns the global seqno. So even if a transaction with a higher global seqno finishes the replication action earlier (due to CPU scheduling) than the transaction with a lower global seqno, it will wait in the pre-commit hook.)
Improved parallelism in the innodb-prepare stage helps accelerate log-bin enabled flow, and the same improved parallelism significantly helps in the log-bin disabled case by reducing redo-flush contention, thereby reducing fsyncs.PROBLEM-2:
MySQL Group Commit already has a concept of ordering transactions based on the order of their addition to the GROUP COMMIT queue (FLUSH STAGE queue to be specific). Commit Monitor enforces the same, making the action redundant but limiting parallelism in MySQL Group Commit Logic (including redo-log flush that is now delayed to the flush stage).
With the existing flow (due to the involvement of Commit Monitor), only one transaction can enter the GROUP COMMIT Queue, thereby limiting optimal use of Group Commit Logic.OPTIMIZATION-2:
Release the Commit Monitor once the transaction is successfully added to flush-stage of group-commit. MySQL will take it from there to maintain the commit ordering. (We call this interim-commit.)
Releasing the Commit Monitor early helps other transactions to make progress and real MySQL Group Commit Leader-Follower Optimization (batch flushing/sync/commit) comes into play.
This also helps ensure batch REDO log flushing.PROBLEM-3:
This problem is specific to when the log-bin is disabled. Percona XtraDB Cluster still generates the log-bin, as it needs it for forming a replication write-set (it just doesn’t persist this log-bin information). If disk space is not a constraint, then I would suggest operating Percona XtraDB Cluster with log-bin enabled.
With log-bin disabled, OPTIMIZATION-1 is still relevant, but OPTIMIZATION-2 isn’t, as there is no group-commit protocol involved. Instead, MySQL ensures that the redo-log (capturing state change of transaction) is persisted before reporting COMMIT as a success. As per the original flow, the Commit Monitor is not released till the commit action is complete.OPTIMIZATION-3:
The transaction is already committed to memory and the state change is captured. This is about persisting the REDO log only (REDO log modification is already captured by mtr_commit). This means we can release the Commit Monitor just before the REDO flush stage kicks in. Correctness is still ensured as the REDO log flush always persists the data sequentially. So even if trx-1 loses its slots before the flush kicks in, and trx-2 is allowed to make progress, trx-2’s REDO log flush ensures that trx-1’s REDO log is also flushed.Conclusion
With these three main optimizations, and some small tweaks, we have tuned Percona XtraDB Cluster to scale better and made it fast enough for the growing demands of your applications. All of this is available with the recently released Percona XtraDB Cluster 5.7.17-29.20. Give it a try and watch your application scale in a multi-master environment, making Percona XtraDB Cluster the best fit for your HA workloads.
Percona XtraDB Cluster 5.6.35-26.20-3 is now the current release, based on the following:
All Percona software is open-source and free. Details of this release can be found in the 5.6.35-26.20-3 milestone on Launchpad.
NOTE: Due to end of life, Percona will stop producing packages for the following distributions after July 31, 2017:
You are strongly advised to upgrade to latest stable versions if you want to continue using Percona software.

In our latest release of Percona XtraDB Cluster, we’ve introduced major performance improvements to the MySQLwrite-set replication layer. In this post, we want to show what these improvements look like.
For the test, we used the sysbench OLTP_RW, UPDATE_KEY and UPDATE_NOKEY workloads with 100 tables, 4mln rows each, which gives about 100GB of datasize. In all the tests we use a three-node setup, connected via a 10GB network, with the sysbench load directed to the one primary node.
In the first chart, we show improvements comparing to the previous version (5.7.16):
The main improvements come from concurrent workloads, under multiple threads.
The previous chart is for cases using enabled binary logs, but in some situations we will have deployments without binary logs enabled (Percona XtraDB Cluster does not require them). The latest release significantly improves performance for this case as well.
Here is a chart showing throughput without binary logs:
Where does Percona XtraDB Cluster place in comparison with similar technologies? To find out, we’ll compare this release with MySQL 5.7.17 Group Replication and with the recently released MariaDB 10.2.5 RC.
For MySQL 5.7.17 Group Replication, I’ve reviewed two cases: “durable” with sync_binlog=1, and “relaxed durability” with sync_binlog=0.
Also for MySQL 5.7.17 Group Replication, we want to review two cases with different flow_control settings. The first setting is flow_control=25000 (the default setting). It provides better performance, but with the drawbacks that non-primary nodes will fall behind significantly and MySQL Group Replication does not provide a way to protect from reading stale data. So with a default flow_control=25000, we risk reading very outdated data. We also tested MySQL Group Replication with flow_control=1000 to minimize stale data on non-primary nodes.
A note on the Flow Control topic: it is worth mentioning that we also changed the flow_control default for Percona XtraDB Cluster. The default value is 100 instead of 16 (as in version 5.7.16).
Comparison chart with sync_binlog=1 (for MySQL Group Replication):
Comparison chart with sync_binlog=0 (for MySQL Group Replication):
So there are couple conclusions we can make out of these charts.
The reference our benchmark files and config files are here.

In this blog post, I’ll discuss some of my thoughts about the future of MariaDB after attending the M17 Conference.
Let me start with full disclosure: I’m the CEO of Percona, and we compete with the MariaDB Corporation in providing Support for MariaDB and other services. I probably have some biases!
Last week I attended the MariaDB Developers UnConference and the M17 Conference, which provided great insights into MariaDB’s positioning as a project and as a business. Below are some of my thoughts as I attended various sessions at the conference:
Breaking away from their MySQL past. Michael Howard’s (MariaDB CEO) keynote focused on breaking away from the past and embracing the future. In this case, the “past” means proprietary databases. But I think MariaDB is also trying to break away from their past of being a MySQL variant, and focus on becoming completely independent technology. If I didn’t know their history, I wouldn’t recognize how much codebase MariaDB shares with MySQL – and how much MariaDB innovation Oracle still drives.
MySQL compatibility is no longer the primary goal. In its first version, MariaDB 5.1 was truly compatible with MySQL (it had relatively few differences). By contrast, MariaDB 10.2 has different replication, JSON support and a very different optimizer. With MariaDB 10.3, more changes are planned for InnoDB on disk format, and no plans exist to remove .frm files and use the MySQL 8 Data Dictionary. With these features, another level of MySQL compatibility is removed. The MariaDB knowledgebase states: “For all practical purposes, MariaDB is a binary drop in replacement for the same MySQL version.” The argument can still be made that this is true for MySQL 5.7 (as long as your application does not use some of the new features), but this does not seem to be the case for MySQL 8.
The idea seems to be that since MariaDB has replaced MySQL in many (most?) Linux distributions, and many people use MariaDB when they think they are using MySQL, compatibility is not that big of a deal anymore.
Embracing contributions and keeping the development process open is a big focus of MariaDB. Facebook, Google, Alibaba and Tencent have contributed to MariaDB, along with many independent smaller companies and independent developers (Percona among them). This is different from the MySQL team at Oracle, who have provided some contributions, but not nearly to the extent that MariaDB has. An open source model is a double-edged sword – while it gives you more features, it also makes it harder to maintain a consistent user experience and consistent quality of code and documentation. It will be interesting to see how MariaDB deals with these challenges.
Oracle compatibility. MariaDB strives to be the open source database that is the most compatible with Oracle, and therefore the easiest to migrate to. I have heard people compare MariaDB’s desire for Oracle compatibility to EDB Postgres – only with the advantage of being open source as opposed to proprietary software. For MariaDB 10.3 (alpha), they are developing support for Oracle PL/SQL syntax for stored procedures to be able to migrate applications with little, if any, changes. They are also developing support for SEQUENCE and other Oracle features, including a special sql_mode=ORACLE to maximize compatibility.
BSL as a key for success. When it comes to business source licensing (BSL), I couldn’t quite resolve the conflict I found in MariaDB’s messaging. On the one hand, MariaDB promotes open source as a great way to escape vendor lock-in (which we at Percona completely agree with). But on the other hand, Michael Howard stated that BSL software (“Eventual Open Source”) is absolutely critical for MariaDB’s commercial success. Is the assumption here that if vendor lock-in is not forever, it is not really lock-in? Currently, only MariaDB MaxScale is BSL, but it sounds like we should expect more of their software to follow this model.
Note. As MariaDB Server and MariaDB Columnstore use a lot of Oracle’s GPL code, these will most likely remain GPL.
I enjoyed attending both conferences. I had a chance to meet with many old friends and past colleagues, as well as get a much better feel for where MariaDB is going and when it is appropriate to advise its usage.
We have been working on bringing out a build of MyRocks with Percona Server for MySQL.
MyRocks is a RocksDB-based storage engine. You can find more information about MyRocks here.
While there is still a lot of work to do, I want to share an experimental build of Percona Server for MySQL with MyRocks, which you can use to evaluate and test this engine
(WARNING: in NO WAY is this build supposed to be for production usage! Consider this ALPHA quality.)
The tar.gz binaries are available from our TESTING area. To start Percona Server for MySQL with the MyRocks engine, use following line in my.cnf:plugin-load=rocksdb=ha_rocksdb.so;rocksdb_cfstats=ha_rocksdb.so;rocksdb_dbstats=ha_rocksdb.so;rocksdb_perf_context=ha_rocksdb.so;rocksdb_perf_context_global=ha_rocksdb.so;rocksdb_cf_options=ha_rocksdb.so;rocksdb_compaction_stats=ha_rocksdb.so;rocksdb_global_info=ha_rocksdb.so;rocksdb_ddl=ha_rocksdb.so;rocksdb_index_file_map=ha_rocksdb.so;rocksdb_locks=ha_rocksdb.so;rocksdb_trx=ha_rocksdb.so
Later we will provide experimental RPM and DEB packages from our testing repositories. Please let us know how MyRocks is working for you!
mysqlpump is a utility that performs logical backups (which means backing up your data as SQL statements instead of a raw copy of data files). It was added in MySQL Server version 5.7.8, and can be used to dump a database or a set of databases to a file and then loaded on another SQL server (not necessarily a MySQL server).
Its usage is similar to mysqldump, but it includes a new set of features. Many of the options are the same, but it was written from scratch to avoid being limited to mysqldump compatibility.The Main Features Include:
This feature provides more control over customizing your dumps, and filter the data that you need. Using this feature, you can be more selective with the data you want to dump (databases, tables, triggers, events, routines, users) and save file size, process time and transferring time while copying/moving the file to another host.
Keep in mind that there are some options that are mutually exclusive: e.g., if you use the --all-databases option, the --exclude-databases parameter won’t take effect. By default, mysqlpump will not dump the following databases unless you specify them using the --include-databases option: INFORMATION_SCHEMA, performance_schema, ndbinfo and sys.
Values for these options need to be declared by comma-separated listing. Using a “%” as a value for any of the exclude/include options acts as a wildcard. For example, you can dump all databases starting with “t” and “p” by adding the option --include-databases=t%,p% to the command line.
For users, routines, triggers and events, mysqlpump has --include-* and --exclude-* options with similar usage. Some specific notes:
This feature allows you to process several databases, and tables within the databases, in parallel. By default, mysqlpump uses one processing queue with two threads. You can increase the number of threads for this default queue with --default-parallelism. Unless you create additional queues, all the databases and/or tables you elect to dump go through the default queue.
To create additional queues you can use the --parallel-schemas option, which takes two parameters: the number of threads for the queue and the sub-set of databases this queue processes. As an example, you could run:mysqlpump --include-databases=a,b,c,d,e,f,g,h --default-parallelism=3 --parallel-schemas=4:a,b
so that schemas c, d, e, f, g and h are processed by the default queue (which uses three threads), and then tables from schemas a and b are processed by a separate queue (that uses four threads). Database names should be included as a comma-separated list:$ mysqlpump --parallel-schemas=4:example1,example2,example3 --parallel-schemas=3:example4,example5 > examples.sql Dump progress: 0/1 tables, 250/261184 rows Dump progress: 24/30 tables, 1204891/17893833 rows Dump progress: 29/30 tables, 1755611/17893833 rows Dump progress: 29/30 tables, 2309111/17893833 rows ... Dump completed in 42424 milliseconds User Accounts:
User accounts can be dumped using this tool. Here’s a comparison of our Percona Tool pt-show-grants versus mysqlpump to check their differences.
By default, mysqlpump doesn’t dump user account definitions (even while dumping the MySQL database). To include user accounts on the dump, you must specify the --users option.
Here’s an example on how use mysqlpump to get only user accounts dumped to a file:$ mysqlpump --exclude-databases=% --exclude-triggers=% --users -- Dump created by MySQL dump utility, version: 5.7.8-rc, linux-glibc2.5 (x86_64) -- Dump start time: Thu Aug 27 17:10:10 2015 -- Server version: 5.7.8 SET @OLD_UNIQUE_CHECKS=@@UNIQUE_CHECKS, UNIQUE_CHECKS=0; SET @OLD_FOREIGN_KEY_CHECKS=@@FOREIGN_KEY_CHECKS, FOREIGN_KEY_CHECKS=0; SET @OLD_TIME_ZONE=@@TIME_ZONE; SET TIME_ZONE='+00:00'; SET @OLD_CHARACTER_SET_CLIENT=@@CHARACTER_SET_CLIENT; SET @OLD_CHARACTER_SET_RESULTS=@@CHARACTER_SET_RESULTS; SET @OLD_COLLATION_CONNECTION=@@COLLATION_CONNECTION; SET NAMES utf8; CREATE USER 'msandbox'@'127.%' IDENTIFIED WITH 'mysql_native_password' AS '*6C387FC3893DBA1E3BA155E74754DA6682D04747' REQUIRE NONE PASSWORD EXPIRE DEFAULT ACCOUNT UNLOCK; GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON *.* TO 'msandbox'@'127.%'; CREATE USER 'msandbox_ro'@'127.%' IDENTIFIED WITH 'mysql_native_password' AS '*6C387FC3893DBA1E3BA155E74754DA6682D04747' REQUIRE NONE PASSWORD EXPIRE DEFAULT ACCOUNT UNLOCK; GRANT SELECT, EXECUTE ON *.* TO 'msandbox_ro'@'127.%'; CREATE USER 'msandbox_rw'@'127.%' IDENTIFIED WITH 'mysql_native_password' AS '*6C387FC3893DBA1E3BA155E74754DA6682D04747' REQUIRE NONE PASSWORD EXPIRE DEFAULT ACCOUNT UNLOCK; GRANT SELECT, INSERT, UPDATE, DELETE, CREATE, DROP, INDEX, ALTER, SHOW DATABASES, CREATE TEMPORARY TABLES, LOCK TABLES, EXECUTE ON *.* TO 'msandbox_rw'@'127.%'; CREATE USER 'rsandbox'@'127.%' IDENTIFIED WITH 'mysql_native_password' AS '*B07EB15A2E7BD9620DAE47B194D5B9DBA14377AD' REQUIRE NONE PASSWORD EXPIRE DEFAULT ACCOUNT UNLOCK; GRANT REPLICATION SLAVE ON *.* TO 'rsandbox'@'127.%'; CREATE USER 'furrywall'@'localhost' IDENTIFIED WITH 'mysql_native_password' AS '*AB8D50A9E3B8D1F3ACE85C54736B5BF472B44539' REQUIRE NONE PASSWORD EXPIRE DEFAULT ACCOUNT LOCK; GRANT USAGE ON *.* TO 'furrywall'@'localhost'; CREATE USER 'msandbox'@'localhost' IDENTIFIED WITH 'mysql_native_password' AS '*6C387FC3893DBA1E3BA155E74754DA6682D04747' REQUIRE NONE PASSWORD EXPIRE DEFAULT ACCOUNT UNLOCK; GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON *.* TO 'msandbox'@'localhost'; CREATE USER 'msandbox_ro'@'localhost' IDENTIFIED WITH 'mysql_native_password' AS '*6C387FC3893DBA1E3BA155E74754DA6682D04747' REQUIRE NONE PASSWORD EXPIRE DEFAULT ACCOUNT UNLOCK; GRANT SELECT, EXECUTE ON *.* TO 'msandbox_ro'@'localhost'; CREATE USER 'msandbox_rw'@'localhost' IDENTIFIED WITH 'mysql_native_password' AS '*6C387FC3893DBA1E3BA155E74754DA6682D04747' REQUIRE NONE PASSWORD EXPIRE DEFAULT ACCOUNT UNLOCK; GRANT SELECT, INSERT, UPDATE, DELETE, CREATE, DROP, INDEX, ALTER, SHOW DATABASES, CREATE TEMPORARY TABLES, LOCK TABLES, EXECUTE ON *.* TO 'msandbox_rw'@'localhost'; CREATE USER 'root'@'localhost' IDENTIFIED WITH 'mysql_native_password' AS '*6C387FC3893DBA1E3BA155E74754DA6682D04747' REQUIRE NONE PASSWORD EXPIRE DEFAULT ACCOUNT UNLOCK; GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON *.* TO 'root'@'localhost' WITH GRANT OPTION; CREATE USER 'testuser'@'localhost' IDENTIFIED WITH 'mysql_native_password' AS '*6E543F385210D9BD42A4FDB4BB23FD2C31C95462' REQUIRE NONE PASSWORD EXPIRE INTERVAL 30 DAY ACCOUNT UNLOCK; GRANT USAGE ON *.* TO 'testuser'@'localhost'; SET TIME_ZONE=@OLD_TIME_ZONE; SET CHARACTER_SET_CLIENT=@OLD_CHARACTER_SET_CLIENT; SET CHARACTER_SET_RESULTS=@OLD_CHARACTER_SET_RESULTS; SET COLLATION_CONNECTION=@OLD_COLLATION_CONNECTION; SET FOREIGN_KEY_CHECKS=@OLD_FOREIGN_KEY_CHECKS; SET UNIQUE_CHECKS=@OLD_UNIQUE_CHECKS; -- Dump end time: Thu Aug 27 17:10:10 2015 Dump completed in 823 milliseconds
As you can see, above the tool makes sure the session uses known values for timezone and character sets. This won’t affect users, it’s part of the dump process to ensure correctness while restoring on the destination.
Comparing it with pt-show-grants from Percona Toolkit, we can see that mysqlpump dumps the CREATE USER information as well. The statements produced by mysqlpump are the right thing to run to recreate users (and should be the preferred method), especially because of the sql_mode NO_AUTO_CREATE_USERS. If enabled, it renders pt-show-grants useless.
Here’s an example of pt-show-grants usage:$ pt-show-grants --host 127.0.0.1 --port 5708 --user msandbox --ask-pass Enter password: -- Grants dumped by pt-show-grants -- Dumped from server 127.0.0.1 via TCP/IP, MySQL 5.7.8-rc at 2015-08-27 17:06:52 -- Grants for 'furrywall'@'localhost' GRANT USAGE ON *.* TO 'furrywall'@'localhost'; -- Grants for 'msandbox'@'127.%' GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON *.* TO 'msandbox'@'127.%'; -- Grants for 'msandbox'@'localhost' GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON *.* TO 'msandbox'@'localhost'; -- Grants for 'msandbox_ro'@'127.%' GRANT EXECUTE, SELECT ON *.* TO 'msandbox_ro'@'127.%'; -- Grants for 'msandbox_ro'@'localhost' GRANT EXECUTE, SELECT ON *.* TO 'msandbox_ro'@'localhost'; -- Grants for 'msandbox_rw'@'127.%' GRANT ALTER, CREATE, CREATE TEMPORARY TABLES, DELETE, DROP, EXECUTE, INDEX, INSERT, LOCK TABLES, SELECT, SHOW DATABASES, UPDATE ON *.* TO 'msandbox_rw'@'127.%'; -- Grants for 'msandbox_rw'@'localhost' GRANT ALTER, CREATE, CREATE TEMPORARY TABLES, DELETE, DROP, EXECUTE, INDEX, INSERT, LOCK TABLES, SELECT, SHOW DATABASES, UPDATE ON *.* TO 'msandbox_rw'@'localhost'; -- Grants for 'root'@'localhost' GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON *.* TO 'root'@'localhost' WITH GRANT OPTION; GRANT PROXY ON ''@'' TO 'root'@'localhost' WITH GRANT OPTION; -- Grants for 'rsandbox'@'127.%' GRANT REPLICATION SLAVE ON *.* TO 'rsandbox'@'127.%'; -- Grants for 'testuser'@'localhost' GRANT USAGE ON *.* TO 'testuser'@'localhost'; Some Miscellaneous Notes:
We are getting a good number of questions about whether Percona Server (for both MySQL and MongoDB) is available for Windows for evaluation or development purposes. I want to provide a guide to how to get it running.
In comments to the post Running Percona XtraBackup on Windows … in Docker, Peter Laursen recommend Bash on Ubuntu on Windows. That hadn’t occurred to me before, so the credit goes to Peter Laursen.
As of that older post, it appears that Percona XtraBackup was not working right in Bash on Ubuntu on Windows. But in my latest test on Windows 10 Creators Edition, the problem seems resolved.
But you can get Percona Server for MySQL Percona Server for and MongoDB) running in Bash on Windows on Ubuntu right away. It is quite easy and does not require extra work. Probably the biggest step is to get Bash on Ubuntu on Windows enabled by itself. A manual on how to do this is here:
After this, follow the steps to install Percona Server for MySQL or Percona Server for MongoDB from our Ubuntu repositories:
After this, you can start the server as you would in a regular Linux environment.
For general inquiries, please send us your question and someone will contact you.
