Percona XtraDB Cluster, MySQL Asynchronous Replication and log-slave-updates

Asynchronous Replication

Recently, I’ve been looking into issues with the interactions between MySQL asynchronous replication and Galera replication. In this blog post, I’d like to share what I’ve learned.
MySQL asynchronous replication and Galera replication interactions are complicated due to the number of factors involved (Galera replication vs. asynchronous replication, replication filters, and row-based vs. statement-based replication). So […]

wsrep-stages

If you’ve tried to use SSL in Percona XtraDB Cluster and saw an error in the logs like SSL3_CHECK_CERT_AND_ALGORITHM:dh key too small, we’ve implemented some changes in Percona XtraDB Cluster 5.6.34 and 5.7.16 that get rid of these errors.
Some background
dh key too small refers to the Diffie-Hellman parameters used by the SSL code that are shorter […]

Simplified Percona XtraDB Cluster SSL Configuration

wsrep-stages

In this blog post, we’ll look at a feature that recently added to Percona XtraDB Cluster 5.7.16, that makes it easier to configure Percona XtraDB Cluster SSL for all related communications. It uses mode “encrypt=4”, and configures SSL for both IST/Galera communications and SST communications using the same SSL files. “encrypt=4” is a new […]

Enabling Percona XtraDB Cluster SST Traffic Encryption

wsrep-stages

In this blog post, we’ll look at enabling Percona XtraDB Cluster SST Traffic Encryption, and some of the changes to the SSL-based encryption of SST traffic in Percona XtraDB Cluster 5.7.16.
Some background
Percona XtraDB Cluster versions prior to 5.7 support encryption methods 0, 1, 2 and 3:

encrypt = 0 : (default) No encryption
encrypt = 1 : […]
