MariaDB Server Compatibility with MySQL


Published on

At the MariaDB Server Developer's meeting in Amsterdam, Oct 8 2016. This was the deck to talk about what MariaDB Server 10.1/10.2 might be missing from MySQL versions up to 5.7. The focus is on compatibility of MariaDB Server with MySQL.

MariaDB Server Compatibility with MySQL

  1. 1. Compatibility with MySQL Colin Charles, on the lists/jira / bytee on IRC #maria / @bytebot on Twitter / byte on github / http:// MariaDB Server Developer’s meeting 2016, Amsterdam, Netherlands 8 October 2016
  2. 2. whoami • Chief Evangelist (in the CTO office), Percona Inc • Founding team of MariaDB Server (2009-2016), previously at Monty Program Ab, merged with SkySQL Ab, now MariaDB Corporation • Formerly MySQL AB (exit: Sun Microsystems) • Past lives include Fedora Project (FESCO), • MySQL Community Contributor of the Year Award winner 2014
  3. 3. The “MariaDB” Code of Conduct • All MariaDB contributors are expected to follow the Ubuntu Code Of Conduct. • Ubuntu is about showing humanity to one another: the word itself captures the spirit of being human. • Be considerate. Be respectful. Take responsibility for our words and actions. Be collaborative. Value decisiveness, clarity and consensus. Ask for help when unsure. Step down considerately. • Open meritocracy. Teamwork. Credit. We value discussion, data and decisiveness. Courage and considerateness. Conflicts of interest. • “People within a corporation become its face” - Shahid Kamal, gaming entrepreneur, @shahidkamal
  4. 4. Define: compatibility (OED) • A state in which two things are able to exist or occur together without problems or conflict.
  5. 5. Commitments • Verbal: MySQL 5.6, should be comparable to MariaDB Server 10.1. And for 10.2 it should be compatible with MySQL 5.7 — Monty, yesterday (7 October 2016) • It is an enhanced, drop-in replacement for MySQL.
  6. 6. From the KB • • Tracker for documentation of above page: MDEV-10392 • mariadb-and-mysql/
  7. 7. 5.7 JSON • - target 10.2, not in the current beta release • what about mysqlsh? (the MySQL Shell)
  8. 8. InnoDB tablespace encryption • MariaDB Server: table or tablespace encryption, fully encrypted logs • MySQL: tablespace encryption, innodb_file_per_table, logs unencrypted • Do we aim for compatibility or make it clear that it won’t be (saying “implemented differently” doesn’t imply incompatibility!) • Polishing encryption? • Galera’s gcache? Logs? ( MDEV-9639) • mysqlbinlog reading encrypted logs? browse/MDEV-8813
  9. 9. CJK language support • Add “ngram” support to MariaDB Server: https:// • Add “MeCab” support to MariaDB Server: https:// • InnoDB 5.7 is now merged, there is no 10.2 target on the above two issues • gb18030 support: MDEV-7495
  10. 10. Multiple triggers per table • Pushed, ready for testing in 10.2.3 •
  11. 11. 10.0/5.6
  12. 12. Replication • How often is replication from 5.6/5.7 tested for 10.1/10.2? (https:// • What (if any) is the plan to make replication work from 10.2 -> 5.7? • FR: Allow replication from MySQL 5.6+ when GTID is enabled on the master - (resolved 9 October 2015) • Multi-source replication is present in 5.7 - is it compatible with 10.2? • Time delayed replication? MDEV-7145
  13. 13. PERFORMANCE_SCHEMA • Off by default, but remember, it can’t be turned on at runtime… • sys schema? • Is it going to get merged? (87 “rows” vs 52)
  14. 14. Bits… • InnoDB memcached (upstream, not the GSoC variant) • sha256_password plugin? browse/MDEV-9804 • removing mysql_old_password? • validate_password on by default in 5.7
  15. 15. How did we do from this time, last year? (Compatibility/convergence/divergence by Eric Herman) • GTID has domain ID (which is an innovation in MariaDB Server) • Knowing scenarios where one can swap, i.e. when one has a multi-vendor strategy, so that people can experimentally try WebScaleSQL/Percona Server/etc. • using innovation may limit your options, i.e. how to step away • if you use out of order parallel replication in MariaDB, you can't go away to somewhere else. So if you use innovation and depend on it, this must be clearly documented • Virtual columns + replication will work • Need specific documentation between master/slave protocol on how they talk, how they shouldn't talk. Replication protocol docs needs improvement (protocol specification). • Goal is to be syntax compatible • SHOW EXPLAIN • Multi-source replication • Replication filters • slave parallel thread vs slave parallel workers • Maybe write a rewrite plugin for MySQL 5.7 to make it more compatible with MariaDB • What do we do with regards to RDS and Aurora? • Being compatible to match other implementations like SQLite/PostgreSQL? When doing development we do test against PostgreSQL • 10.0 needed work on default_tmp_storage_en gine (and 10.1 has this). • To make it easier we need to ensure that options are easy for people (DBAs) whom are doing both MariaDB and MySQL. Allow simple as possible configuration • Importing from WebScaleSQL? "We import all good and reasonable stuff" (audience breaks out into laughter) • super readonly mode - its everywhere, so it has to be in MariaDB Server 10.2 • InnoDB - follow MySQL InnoDB. When innovation happens (encryption), then we need to make it clear how to go back. • Goal: default optimizer changes only happen at major releases. • missing: crash slave replication with current position • missing: minimal RBR • Optimizer trace
  16. 16. Missing! • SUPER readonly mode - browse/MDEV-9458 • Optimizer trace - MDEV-6111 • Add replication crash-safety for non-GTID slave -
  17. 17. Needs work • Minimal RBR - Minimal/NOBLOB Binlog Row Image replication fails when tables from master have different PK in slave browse/MDEV-8398 (docs?) • Syntax compatibility (explain for connection <id> -, etc.)
  18. 18. Installation… • MySQL: yum/ - grab a package — e.g. mysql57- community-release-el7-9.noarch.rpm • MariaDB Server: mariadb/repositories/ - copy/paste, edit a file, then install • Percona Server: percona-server/5.7/installation/yum_repo.html - yum install Percona-Server-server-57
  19. 19. Starting up • MySQL / Percona Server • service mysqld start • grep 'temporary password' /var/log/mysqld.log • ALTER USER 'root'@'localhost' IDENTIFIED BY ‘rootmeOK!’; • MariaDB Server? mysql -uroot “just works”
  20. 20. mysql.user table changes • MariaDB Server and MySQL differ here (not just by addition of roles) - mysql.user.password is just mysql.user.authentication_string (is MariaDB Server removing password?) • Password expiry is coming? MDEV-7597 • Password last changed? Lifetime? • ACCOUNT LOCK/UNLOCK • VALIDATE_PASSWORD_STRENGTH() SQL function doesn’t work in MariaDB Server
  21. 21. More 5.7 • Optimizer hints (and the cost based optimizer itself?) - https:// • RENAME INDEX - • Query rewriting? - • GIS: GeoJSON functions? Geohash functions? • SELECT ST_AsGeoJSON(ST_GeomFromText('POINT(11.11111 12.22222)’),2); • SELECT ST_GeoHash(180,0,10), ST_GeoHash(-180,-90,15);
  22. 22. Tools • including new tools like mysql_ssl_rsa_setup ? mysqlpump? • why will xtrabackup not work with MariaDB Server encryption or compression? • When merging XtraDB, why isn’t it complete, with backup locks? • tools that require MySQL GTID don’t work with MariaDB Server - ideas? (e.g. mysqlfailover, mysqlrpladmin, MHA, etc.) • vitess, started life on just MariaDB Server, but note they support 5.6/5.7 and only 10.0
  23. 23. Contributions? • SPIDER • SPIDER works better if its recompiled (doesn’t matter if its included, it isn’t “feature complete”) • Open since March 2015. Priority provided since May 2016. • • Are people still using HandlerSocket? • What needs to get deprecated so focus can happen on other things?
  24. 24. Open ended… • How often are the 5.6/5.7 mysqltest’s run on MariaDB Server? • How often are upgrades from 5.6/5.7 tested?
  25. 25. Today we already see this…
  26. 26. The future • MySQL 8 brings roles, CTEs, (soon window functions), transactional data dictionary, histograms, SDIs (instead of FRMs), etc. • milestone-release-is-available/ • Will MariaDB Server 10.3 aim to be compatible with MySQL 8?
