MySQL database replication with Linux

MySQL database replication with Linux

Database replication is a technique where a given database is copied to one or more locations, so that the reliability, fault-tolerance or accessibility of the database can be improved. Replication can be snapshot-based (where entire data is simply copied over to another location), merge-based (where two or more databases are merged into one), or transaction-based (where data updates are periodically applied from master to slaves).

MySQL replication is considered as transactional replication. To implement MySQL replication, the master keeps a log of all database updates that have been performed. The slave(s) then connect to the master, read individual log entries, and perform recorded updates. Besides maintaining a transaction log, the master performs various housekeeping tasks, such as log rotation and access control. When new transactions occur and get logged on the master server, the slaves commit the same transactions on their copy of the master database, and update their position in the master server’s transaction log. This master-to-slave replication process is done asynchronously, which means that the master server doesn’t have to wait for the slaves to catch up. If the slaves are unable to connect to the master for a period of time, they will download and execute all pending transactions when connectivity is re-established.

Database replication allows one to have an exact copy of a live database of a master server at another remote server (slave server) without taking the master server offline. In case the master server is down or having any trouble, one can temporarily point database clients or DNS resolver to the slave server’s IP address, achieving transparent failover. It is must be noted that MySQL replication is not a backup solution. For example, if an unintended DELETE command gets executed in the master server by accident, the same transaction will mess up all slave servers.

In this article, we will demonstrate master-slave based MySQL replication on two Linux computers. Let’s assume that the IP addresses of master/slave servers are 192.168.2.1 and 192.168.2.2, respectively.

Setting up a Master MySQL Server

This part will explain the steps needed on the master server.

First, log in to MySQL, and create test_repl database.

$ mysql -u root -p
mysql> CREATE DATABASE test_repl;

Next, create a table inside test_repl database, and insert three sample records.

mysql> USE test_repl;
mysql> CREATE TABLE employee (EmployeeID int, LastName varchar(255), FirstName varchar(255), Address varchar(255), City varchar(255));
mysql> INSERT INTO employee VALUES(1,"LastName1","FirstName1","Address1","City1"),(2,"Lastname2","FirstName2","Address2","City2"),(3,"LastName3","FirstName3","Address3","City4");

After exiting the MySQL server, edit my.cnf file using your favorite text editor. my.cnf is found under /etc, or /etc/mysql directory.

# nano /etc/my.cnf

Add the following lines under [mysqld] section.

[mysqld]
id=1
log-bin=master-bin.log
do-db=test_repl
innodb_flush_log_at_trx_commit=1
sync_binlog=1

The server-id option assigns an integer ID (ranging from 1 to 2^23) to the master server. For simplicity, ID 1 and 2 are assigned to the master server and the slave server, respectively. The master server must enable binary logging (with log-bin option), which will activate the replication. Set the binlog-do-db option to the name of a database which will be replicated to the slave server. The innodb_flush_log_at_trx_commit=1 and sync_binlog=1options must be enabled for the best possible durability and consistency in replication.

After saving the changes in my.cnf, restart mysqld daemon.

# systemctl restart mysqld

or:

# /etc/init.d/mysql restart

Log in to the master MySQL server, and create a new user for a slave server. Then grant replication privileges to the new user.

mysql> CREATE USER repl_user@192.168.2.2;
mysql> GRANT REPLICATION SLAVE ON *.* TO repl_user@192.168.2.2 IDENTIFY BY 'repl_user_password';
mysql> FLUSH PRIVILEGES;

A new user for the slave server is repl_user, and its password is repl_user_password. Note that the master MySQL server must not bind to the loopback interface since a remote slave server needs to log in to the master server as repl_user. Check this tutorial to change MySQL server’s binding interface.

Finally, check the master server status by executing the following command on the server.

mysql> SHOW MASTER STATUS;

18157192466_b3cc2d5ced_o

Please note that the first and second columns (e.g., master-bin.000002 and 107) will be used by the slave server to perform master-to-slave replication.

Sauvegarde MySQL

sauvegarde mysqlSauvegarde MySQL

Pour sauvegarder une base de données (sans et avec compression) :

# mysqldump NOM_BASE > NOM_FICHIER
# mysqldump NOM_BASE | gzip > NOM_FICHIER

Pour restaurer une base de données (sans et avec compression) :

# mysqladmin create NOM_BASE
# mysql NOM_BASE < NOM_FICHIER
# gunzip < NOM_FICHIER | mysql NOM_BASE

Sauvegarder toutes les bases :

# mysqldump --opt --all-databases > NOM_FICHIER

Pour sauvegarder uniquement certaines tables :

# mysqldump NOM_BASE NOM_TABLE0 [NOM_TABLE1...] > NOM_FICHIER

Pour presque faire un « –exclude » (qui manque cruellement à mysqldump):

mysql -B -N -e 'show databases' | 
  perl -ne 'print unless /b(?:phpmyadmin|mysql|information_schema)b/' | 
  xargs echo mysqldump -B

Et pour sauvegarder des tables correspondant à un motif (préfixe le plus souvent) :

# mysqldump NOM_BASE $(mysql NOM_BASE -B --column-names=False -e "show tables like 'exemple_%'") > NOM_FICHIER

Pour dumper avec une condition particulière :

mysqldump -t <base> <table> --where="my_id='66666666'"

Ce qui permet de réinjecter des données résultantes d’un SELECT * FROM base.table WHERE my_id='66666666'.

Il est évidement possible de faire toutes ces opération sur une instance en précisant son port avec l’option –port (valable pour mysqldump et mysql).

Pour obtenir une liste des utilisateurs mysql, on peut utiliser cette fonction (glanée sur serverfault) :

mygrants()
{
  mysql -B -N -e "SELECT DISTINCT CONCAT(
    'SHOW GRANTS FOR ''', user, '''@''', host, ''';'
    ) AS query FROM mysql.user" | 
  mysql | 
  sed 's/(GRANT .*)/1;/;s/^(Grants for .*)/## 1 ##/;/##/{x;p;x;}'
}

MySQL – Gestion des binlogs

23/03/2019 Comments off

mysql binlogsPar défaut, MySQL stocke chaque requête en écriture dans des fichiers appelés binlogs.

Configuration des binlogs

Par défaut les binlogs sont conservés sur 10 jours, avec des fichiers n’excédant pas 100 Mo :

#log_bin                        = /var/log/mysql/mysql-bin.log
expire_logs_days        = 10
max_binlog_size         = 100M
#binlog_do_db           = include_database_name
#binlog_ignore_db       = include_database_name
binlog_format           = mixed

Format

http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.5/en/binary-log-setting.html

On peut choisir 3 types de format pour les binlogs :

  • statement : les requêtes INSERT / UPDATE sont conservées
  • row : les modifications de chaque ligne sont conservées (via une sorte de code « binaire » propre à MySQL)
  • mixed : en mode statement… sauf dans certains cas où cela passe en mode row

Avantages et inconvénients :

Le mode statement est utile pour conserver en clair toutes les requêtes. Il permet aussi de meilleures performances quand des UPDATE contiennent des clauses WHERE qui modifient de nombreuses lignes. Pour de la réplication, il peut être non fiable car le résultat d’un UPDATE peut donner des résultats différents sur un serveur SLAVE. Cela peut aussi poser des soucis avec les transactions InnoDB.

Le mode row a l’inconvénient de rendre illisibles toutes les requêtes. Dans certains cas particuliers (UPDATE contiennent des clauses WHERE qui modifient de nombreuses lignes), il peut être moins performant. Il a l’avantage d’être plus fiable pour de la réplication.

Le mode mixed est un bon compromis pour de la réplication : il permet de voir la plupart des requêtes en clair, mais évite le problème de fiabilité en passant en mode row quand c’est nécessaire.

Suppression

Pour supprimer les binlogs antérieurs à mysql-bin.00NNNN :

mysql> PURGE BINARY LOGS TO 'mysql-bin.00NNNN';

ou par rapport à une date :

mysql> PURGE BINARY LOGS BEFORE "2011-12-07 00:00:00";

Désactivation

Pour désactiver les binlogs, on ajoutera l’option suivante dans la configuration :

disable-log-bin

Lecture

On pourra lire en ligne de commande le contenu d’un binlog via la commande :

# mysqlbinlog /var/log/mysql/mysql-bin.001789 | less

Note : si vous obtenez une erreur mysqlbinlog: unknown variable 'default-character-set=utf8' c’est que la directive default-character-set a été placée dans la configuration MySQL (/etc/mysql ou .my.cnf) dans la mauvaise section : [client] au lieu de [mysql] (ou [mysqldump]).

Replay

ATTENTION, CES MANIPULATIONS PEUVENT ÊTRE DANGEREUSES POUR VOS DONNÉES, BIEN SAVOIR CE QUE L’ON FAIT.

On pourra ainsi injecter le contenu d’un binlog dans une base… tout simplement avec une commande du type :

# mysqlbinlog /var/log/mysql/mysql-bin.001789 | mysql -P3307

À noter que si une partie des données étaient déjà présentes (cas d’un binlog corrompu lors d’incident lors d’une réplication), on pourra procéder ainsi :

# mysqlbinlog /var/log/mysql/mysql-bin.001789 > mysql-bin.001789.txt
# sed -i 's/INSERT INTO/INSERT IGNORE INTO/gi' mysql-bin.001789.txt
# cat mysql-bin.001789.txt | mysql -P3307

Log des requêtes lentes

Pour débugger les applications lentes, c’est une fonctionnalité intéressante de trouver quel requête est longue. Pour cela on peut spécifier quand une requêtes est considéré comme longue, le chemin où stocker les requêtes, et l’activation des logs.

long_query_time = 2 #Default 10 !
slow_query_log = 1
slow_query_log_file = /var/log/mysql/slow.log

MySQL Master / Slave Replication

Master Slave MySQL Replication Summary

Master / Slave replication in MySQL is a great way to store an exact replica of your database on another machine in another location as part of a disaster recovery plan.  Before setting up Master / Slave replication there are a few things to remember.

  • Writes – Writes to the master database should make it to the slave.  But writes to the slave will not make it to the master.  If you do write records to the slave database directly, be prepared to have to either recreate the records or back them up separately and recover them if the replication breaks.  Many times the only way to get the databases to replicate again is to backup the master and recover it over the top of the slave deleting anything that was in the slave database before.
  • Broken Replication – Writes made directly to the slave can cause the replication to break due to duplicate key rows, etc..  Always write to the master.
  • Reads – Reads should be possible from either server.  Many organizations will use replication so as to create another database to read from thereby taking the load of all of their select statements and reports off the master server.

 

MySQL Replication schemeMaster Slave MySQL Replication

Steps to Setup MySQL Master / Slave Replication

Prerequisites

We will be assuming that the following prerequisites are done prior to beginning the steps listed below:

  • MySQL has been installed on both the master and the slave servers
  • The slave server is able to communicate directly to the mysqld port (typically 3306) on the master server, meaning that there is no firewall, routing, NAT or other problems preventing communication.
  • You have an administrator MySQL user that can create users on both the master and the slave machines.
  • You have permissions to edit the /etc/my.cnf files on both machines and enough privileges to restart mysql.

That should be it!  Let’s begin setting it up.

Guide to rsnapshot and incremental backups on Linux

14/03/2019 Comments off

1. Introduction

rsnapshot is a backup tool written in Perl that utilizes rsync as its back-end. rsnapshot allows users to create customized incremental backup solutions. This article will discuss the following: the benefits of an incremental backup solution, rsnapshot’s installation, its configuration, and usage examples.

2. Back-it up!

I was recently discussing with a colleague the benefits of backing up your data. My colleague was telling me how one of her customers had recently lost a rather lengthy article that they had been working on. I decided that this may be a good chance to experiment with my netbook and rsnapshot. For this tutorial, I’ll assume you have have 2 pieces of hardware: your host computer, and your destination equipment. I’ll be using an external hard drive for the majority of this post. However, I will briefly cover usage for backing up files over a LAN.

Backing up your data should not be the question to ask but rather how should I backup my stuff? What’s the best way? Well there are many different backup pathways you can take, including block level (dd, partimage), partition level (RAID and all its variations), file level (rsyncand its children applications). I’ll discuss two types of backups in the context of file-based backups.

Normal backups, or full backups, are self explanatory. Normal backups are one way of backing up ALL your files every time you perform a backup. One issue with utilizing a multiple normal backup scheme is that a normal backup takes up a considerable amount of space. For example, if you perform a full backup of a 250gig hard drive at 20% capacity, everyday for just one week (assuming that the amount of data does not fluctuate) will mean that you already have used 350gigs for only one week’s worth of backups. As you can see, that is not feasible in the long run. The other method that I prefer is the incremental backup method. An incremental backup consists of one full backup and then performing additional backups. These additional backups will only backup files that  have changed since the last backup. Instead of backing up your entire hard drive, only the specific files that have changed since the last backup are backed up. As you can probably imagine this is a much more efficient process. One tool that does this on *nix is rsnapshot.

3. What is rsnapshot?

rsnapshot, as mentioned earlier, is an incremental backup utility. In this tutorial, I will show you how to create a seven day rotation backup scheme using rsnapshot. Essentially, rsnapshot will create 1 full backup and then subsequent backups will backup only files that have changed. The true power of rsnapshot is its ability to utilize hard-links between each backup. Each backup will appear to be a full backup. In reality each new backup consists of newly created or updated files. rsnapshot can be used over a LAN and can also be ran from cron. In this tutorial, I’ll show both usage examples.

4. Installation

Installation of rsnapshot is pretty straightforward, simply run the following command:

On Debian (or Ubuntu):

apt-get install rsnapshot

On Fedora:

yum install rsnapshot

On ArchLinux:

pacman -S rsnapshot

Now let’s configure rsnapshot.
