For optimal compatibility and performance, all members of a group should run the same version of MySQL Server and therefore of Group Replication. However, in some situations, it may be required to that a group contains servers running different versions. For example, during a rolling upgrade.…
With the release of version 8.0.17 of MySQL, we bring to you the brand new Clone plugin. Allowing you to get physical snapshots of data stored in InnoDB, this new plugin is an ideal addition to your Group Replication setup.
When joining a new server into a running replication group, a manual offline provisioning procedure was required in most cases as a tool to execute this step in the context of distributed recovery was missing.…
The MySQL Development Team is very excited and proud of what was achieved in this 8.0.17 GA release!
The spotlight is on… A game-changer feature – Automatic Node provisioning!
This has been an extremely desired and important feature, and it has been accomplished, once again, with tight integration and cooperation of MySQL Components:
- The new MySQL Clone Plugin: To take a physical snapshot of the database and transfer it over the network to provision a server, all integrated into the server, using regular MySQL connections.

In a previous blog post we presented the message fragmentation functionality that you can use starting with MySQL Group Replication 8.0.16.
No group member can have a version < 8.0.16 if you wish to use message fragmentation in a group. MySQL 8.0.16 also ships with a new Group Replication concept to help you ensuring backwards compatibility: the group’s communication protocol.…
MySQL 8.0.16 is out and it enhances Group Replication as usual. For example, the group_replication_exit_state_action system variable has a new default value, and members that the group expels can now automatically try to rejoin. This post presents a new feature MySQL 8.0.16 brings to Group Replication: message fragmentation.…
MySQL 8.0.16 has been released last Thursday. In it, you can find some new replication features. Here is a quick summary. Follow-up blog posts will provide details about these features.
- Large Messages Fragmentation Layer for Group Replication. Tiago Vale’s work, introduces message fragmentation to the Group Communication Framework.
On previous posts about Group Replication consistency we:
- introduced consistency levels;
- explained how to configure the primary failover consistency;
- presented how to configure transaction consistency levels to achieve the consistency required by your applications.
In blog 3. we presented the consistency levels: EVENTUAL, BEFORE, AFTER and BEFORE_AND_AFTER; their scopes: SESSION, GLOBAL; and their context: whether they only impact the ongoing transaction or all concurrent transactions.…
In 8.0.14, we add to Group Replication (GR) the ability to use IPv6 in all of its network-related configuration parameters. This means that now you can take advantage of this technology and “rock” those billion addresses using MySQL Group Replication.
When you operate a Group Replication group, some variables use network addresses, mainly:
