MariaDB and Cassandra Interoperability Presentation Transcript

  • 1. #CASSANDRA13 Colin Charles | colin@mariadb.org | SkySQL Ab | http://mariadb.org/ @bytebot on Twitter | http://bytebot.net/blog/ MariaDB and Cassandra Interoperability
  • 2. #CASSANDRA13 whoami *Work on MariaDB today *Formerly of MySQL AB (acquired Sun Microsystems) *Worked on The Fedora Project & OpenOffice.org previously *Monty Program Ab is a major sponsor of MariaDB *SkySQL & Monty Program Ab merge *MariaDB governed by MariaDB Foundation
  • 3. #CASSANDRA13 What we will discuss today... *What is MariaDB? *MariaDB Architecture *The Cassandra Storage Engine (CassandraSE) *Data & Command Mapping *Use Cases *Benchmarks *Conclusions
  • 4. #CASSANDRA13 What is MariaDB? *Community developed, feature enhanced, backward compatible MySQL *Drop-in replacement to MySQL *Shipped in many Linux distributions as a default *Enhanced features: threadpool, table elimination, optimizer changes (subqueries materialize!), group commit in the replication binary log, HandlerSocket, SphinxSE, multi-source replication, dynamic columns
  • 5. #CASSANDRA13
  • 6. #CASSANDRA13 MariaDB/MySQL and NoSQL *HandlerSocket *memcached access to InnoDB *Hadoop Applier *LevelDB Storage Engine *Cassandra Storage Engine
  • 7. #CASSANDRA13 Dynamic Columns *Store a different set of columns for every row in the table *Basically a blob with handling functions (GET, CREATE, ADD, DELETE, EXISTS, LIST, JSON) *Dynamic columns can be nested *You can request rows in JSON format *You can now name dynamic columns as well INSERT INTO tbl SET dyncol_blob=COLUMN_CREATE("column_name", "value");
  • 8. #CASSANDRA13 Cassandra background *Distributed key/value store (limited range scan support), optionally flexible schema (pre-defined “static” columns, ad-hoc dynamic columns), automatic sharding/ replication, eventual consistency *Column families are like “tables” *Row key -> column mapping *Supercolumns are not supported
  • 9. #CASSANDRA13 CQL at work cqlsh> CREATE KEYSPACE mariadbtest ... WITH REPLICATION ={'class':'SimpleStrategy','replication_factor':1}; cqlsh> use mariadbtest; cqlsh:mariadbtest> create columnfamily cf1 ( pk varchar primary key, data1 varchar, data2 bigint ) with compactstorage; cqlsh:mariadbtest> insert into cf1 (pk, data1,data2) values ('row1', 'data-in-cassandra', 1234); cqlsh:mariadbtest> select * from cf1; pk | data1 | data2 ------+-------------------+------- row1 | data-in-cassandra | 1234 cqlsh:mariadbtest> select * from cf1 where pk='row1'; pk | data1 | data2 ------+-------------------+------- row1 | data-in-cassandra | 1234 cqlsh:mariadbtest> select * from cf1 where data2=1234; Bad Request: No indexed columns present in by-columns clause with Equal operator cqlsh:mariadbtest> select * from cf1 where pk='row1' or pk='row2'; Bad Request: line 1:34 missing EOF at 'or'
  • 10. #CASSANDRA13 CQL *Looks like SQL at first glance *No joins or subqueries *No GROUP BY, ORDER BY must be able to use available indexes *WHERE clause must represent an index lookup *Simple goal of the Cassandra Storage Engine? Provide a “view” of Cassandra’s data from MariaDB
  • 11. #CASSANDRA13 Getting started *Get MariaDB 10.0.3 from https://downloads.mariadb.org/ *Load the Cassandra plugin - From SQL: MariaDB [(none)]> install plugin cassandra soname 'ha_cassandra.so'; - Or start it from my.cnf [mysqld] ... plugin-load=ha_cassandra.so
  • 12. #CASSANDRA13 Is everything ok? *Check to see that it is loaded - SHOW PLUGINS MariaDB [(none)]> show plugins; +--------------------+--------+-----------------+-----------------+---------+ | Name | Status | Type | Library | License | +--------------------+--------+-----------------+-----------------+---------+ ... | CASSANDRA | ACTIVE | STORAGE ENGINE | ha_cassandra.so | GPL | +--------------------+--------+-----------------+-----------------+---------+
  • 13. #CASSANDRA13 Create an SQL table which is a view of a column family MariaDB [test]> set global cassandra_default_thrift_host='10.196.2.113'; MariaDB [test]> create table t2 (pk varchar(36) primary key, -> data1 varchar(60), -> data2 bigint -> ) engine=cassandra -> keyspace='mariadbtest' -> thrift_host='10.196.2.113' -> column_family='cf1'; *thrift_host can be set per-table *@@cassandra_default_thrift_host allows to re-point the table to different node dynamically, and not change table DDL when Cassandra IP changes
  • 14. #CASSANDRA13 Potential issues *SELinux/AuditD blocks the connection ERROR 1429 (HY000): Unable to connect to foreign data source: connect() failed: Permission denied [1] *Disable SELinux: echo 0 > /selinux/enforce | service auditd stop *Cassandra 1.2 with Column Families (CFs) without “COMPACT STORAGE” attribute (pre-CQL3) ERROR 1429 (HY000): Unable to connect to foreign data source: Column family cf1 not found in keyspace mariadbtest *Thrift based-clients no longer work, broke Pig as well (https:// issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CASSANDRA-5234); we’ll update this soon
  • 15. #CASSANDRA13 Accessing Cassandra data from MariaDB *Get data from Cassandra MariaDB [test]> select * from t2; +------+-------------------+-------+ | pk | data1 | data2 | +------+-------------------+-------+ | row1 | data-in-cassandra | 1234 | +------+-------------------+-------+ *Insert data into Cassandra MariaDB [test]> insert into t2 values ('row2','data-from-mariadb', 123); *Ensure Cassandra sees inserted data cqlsh:mariadbtest> select * from cf1; pk | data1 | data2 ------+-------------------+------- row1 | data-in-cassandra | 1234 row2 | data-from-mariadb | 123
  • 16. #CASSANDRA13 Data mapping between Cassandra and SQL create table tbl ( pk varchar(36) primary key, data1 varchar(60), data2 bigint ) engine=cassandra keyspace='ks1' column_family='cf1' *MariaDB table represents Cassandra’s Column Family - can use any table name, column_family=... specifies CF
  • 17. #CASSANDRA13 Data mapping between Cassandra and SQL create table tbl ( pk varchar(36) primary key, data1 varchar(60), data2 bigint ) engine=cassandra keyspace='ks1' column_family='cf1' *MariaDB table represents Cassandra’s Column Family - can use any table name, column_family=... specifies CF *Table must have a primary key - name/type must match Cassandra’s rowkey
  • 18. #CASSANDRA13 Data mapping between Cassandra and SQL create table tbl ( pk varchar(36) primary key, data1 varchar(60), data2 bigint ) engine=cassandra keyspace='ks1' column_family='cf1' *MariaDB table represents Cassandra’s Column Family - can use any table name, column_family=... specifies CF *Table must have a primary key - name/type must match Cassandra’s rowkey *Columns map to Cassandra’s static columns - name must be same as in Cassandra, datatypes must match, can be subset of CF’s columns
  • 19. #CASSANDRA13 Datatype mapping Cassandra MariaDB blob BLOB, VARBINARY(n) ascii BLOB, VARCHAR(n), use charset=latin1 text BLOB, VARCHAR(n), use charset=utf8 varint VARBINARY(n) int INT bigint BIGINT, TINY, SHORT uuid CHAR(36) (text in MariaDB) timestamp TIMESTAMP (second), TIMESTAMP(6) (microsecond), BIGINT boolean BOOL float FLOAT double DOUBLE decimal VARBINARY(n) counter BIGINT
  • 20. #CASSANDRA13 Dynamic columns revisited *Cassandra supports “dynamic column families”, can access ad-hoc columns create table tbl ( rowkey type PRIMARY KEY column1 type, ... dynamic_cols blob DYNAMIC_COLUMN_STORAGE=yes ) engine=cassandra keyspace=... column_family=...; insert into tbl values (1, column_create('col1', 1, 'col2', 'value-2')); select rowkey, column_get(dynamic_cols, 'uuidcol' as char) from tbl;
  • 21. #CASSANDRA13 All data mapping is safe *CassandraSE will refuse incorrect mappings (throw errors) create table t3 (pk varchar(60) primary key, no_such_field int) engine=cassandra `keyspace`='mariadbtest' `column_family`='cf1'; ERROR 1928 (HY000): Internal error: 'Field `no_such_field` could not be mapped to any field in Cassandra' create table t3 (pk varchar(60) primary key, data1 double) engine=cassandra `keyspace`='mariadbtest' `column_family`='cf1'; ERROR 1928 (HY000): Internal error: 'Failed to map column data1 to datatype org.apache.cassandra.db.marshal.UTF8Type'
  • 22. #CASSANDRA13 Command Mapping *Cassandra commands - PUT (upsert) - GET (performs a scan) - DELETE (if exists) *SQL commands - SELECT -> GET/Scan - INSERT -> PUT (upsert) - UPDATE/DELETE -> read/write
  • 23. #CASSANDRA13 SELECT command mapping *MariaDB has a SQL interpreter *CassandraSE supports lookups and scans *Can now do: - arbitrary WHERE clauses - JOINs between Cassandra tables and MariaDB tables (BKA supported)
  • 24. #CASSANDRA13 Batched Key Access is fast! select max(l_extendedprice) from orders, lineitem where o_orderdate between $DATE1 and $DATE2 and l_orderkey=o_orderkey
  • 25. #CASSANDRA13 DML command mapping *No SQL semantics - INSERT overwrites rows - UPDATE reads, then writes (have you updated what you read?) - DELETE reads, then writes (can’t be sure if/what you’ve deleted) *CassandraSE doesn’t make it SQL!
  • 26. #CASSANDRA13 CassandraSE use cases *Collect massive amounts of data like web page hits *Collect massive amounts of data from sensors *Updates are non-conflicting - keyed by UUIDs, timestamps *Reads are served with one lookup *Good for certain kinds of data (though moving from SQL entirely may be difficult)
  • 27. #CASSANDRA13 Access Cassandra data from SQL *Send an update to Cassandra - be a sensor *Get a piece of data from Cassandra - This webpage was last viewed by... - Last known position of this user was... - You are user number n of n-thousands...
  • 28. #CASSANDRA13 From MariaDB... *Want a table that is: - auto-replicated - fault-tolerant - very fast *Get Cassandra and create a CassandraSE table
  • 29. #CASSANDRA13 A possibly unique use *MariaDB ships the CONNECT storage engine (XML, ODBC, etc.) *You can CONNECT to Oracle (via ODBC), join results from Cassandra (via CassandraSE) and have all your results sit in InnoDB - yes, collaboration between Oracle, Cassandra and MariaDB is possible today *Remember to turn on engine condition pushdown
  • 30. #CASSANDRA13 CassandraSE non-use cases *Huge, sift through all data joins? - use Pig *Bulk data transfer to/from Cassandra Cluster? - use Sqoop *A replacement for InnoDB? - remember no full SQL semantics, InnoDB is useful for myriad reasons
  • 31. #CASSANDRA13 A tiny benchmark *One table *Amazon EC2 environment - m1.large nodes - ephemeral disks *Stream of single-line INSERTs *Tried InnoDB & CassandraSE *No tuning
  • 32. #CASSANDRA13 A tiny benchmark II *InnoDB with tuning, same setup as before
  • 33. #CASSANDRA13 Conclusions *CassandraSE can be used to peek at data in Cassandra from MariaDB *It is not a replacement for Pig/Hive *It is really easy to setup & use
  • 34. #CASSANDRA13 Roadmap *Do you want support for: - fast counter column updates? - awareness/discovery of Cassandra cluster topology? - secondary indexes? - ... ?
  • 35. #CASSANDRA13 Resources *https://kb.askmonty.org/en/cassandrase/ *http://wiki.apache.org/cassandra/DataModel *http://cassandra.apache.org/ *http://www.datastax.com/docs/1.1/ddl/column_family *MariaDB: http://mariadb.org/ *Knowledge Base: http://kb.askmonty.org/
  • 36. #CASSANDRA13 THANK YOU Colin Charles | colin@mariadb.org | SkySQL Ab | http://mariadb.org/ @bytebot on Twitter | http://bytebot.net/blog/
  • 37. #CASSANDRA13 Cassandra SE internals *Developed against Cassandra 1.1 *Uses Thrift API - cannot stream CQL resultset in 1.1 - cannot use secondary indexes *Only supports AllowAllAuthenticator (Cassandra 1.2 has username/password authentication) *In Cassandra 1.2 - “CQL Binary Protocol” with streaming - CASSANDRA-5234: Thrift can only read CFs “WITH COMPACT STORAGE”
  • 38. #CASSANDRA13 Running this on localhost *Use vagrant, Ubuntu (12.04), DataStax Cassandra (1.1) *http://julien.duponchelle.info/Cassandra-MariaDB-Virtual-Box.html *Its nice to be able to run this locally, but beyond testing, there’s nothing great from this
  • 39. #CASSANDRA13 Really running this (on EC2) *Use http://www.datastax.com/docs/1.2/install/install_ami *minimum is m1.large instance *--clustername MyCluster --totalnodes 1 --version community
