Setting up MySQL Replication for High Availability

by Alex Davies | May 2010 | Cookbooks MySQL Open Source Web Development

MySQL Replication is a feature of the MySQL server that allows you to replicate data from one MySQL database server (called the master) to one or more MySQL database servers (slaves). MySQL Replication has been supported in MySQL for a very long time and is an extremely flexible and powerful technology. Depending on the configuration, you can replicate all databases, selected databases, or even selected tables within a database.

In this article, by Alex Davies, author of High Availability MySQL Cookbook, we will cover:

  • Designing a replication setup
  • Configuring a replication master
  • Configuring a replication slave without synchronizing data
  • Configuring a replication slave and migrating data with a simple SQL dump
  • Using LVM to reduce downtime on master when bringing a slave online
  • Replication safety tricks

Installing and Managing Multi Master Replication Manager(MMM) for MySQL High Availability is covered seperately.

Installing and Managing Multi Master Replication Manager(MMM) for MySQL High Availability

by Alex Davies | May 2010 | Cookbooks MySQL Open Source Web Development

Multi Master Replication Manager for MySQL ("MMM") is a set of open source Perl scripts designed to automate the process of creating and automatically managing the "Active / Passive Master" high availability replication setup discussed earlier in the article on MySQL Replication design recipe, which uses two MySQL servers configured as masters with only one of the masters accepting write queries at any point in time. This provides redundancy without any significant performance cost.

In this article, by Alex Davies, author of High Availability MySQL Cookbook, we will cover:

  • Multi Master Replication Manager (MMM)
    • Initial installation
    • Installing the MySQL nodes
    • Installing the monitoring node
  • Managing and using Multi Master Replication Manager (MMM)

Blender 2.49 Scripting: Shape Keys, IPOs, and Poses

by Michel J. Anders | April 2010 | Open Source

The Blender API provides us with the means to define IPOs from scratch, enabling the definition of movements not easily re-created by setting key frames by hand. Thus there is more to IPOs than just driving one IPO by another one. Furthermore, Shape keys and poses are examples of (collections of) IPOs that are quite different from, for example, a location IPO. We will encounter both shape keys and poses later on in this article, but we will start off with looking at how we might define an IPO from scratch.

In this article by Michel Anders, author of Blender 2.49 Scripting, you will learn how to:

  • Define IPOs
  • Define shape keys on a mesh
  • Define IPOs for those shape keys
  • Pose armatures
  • Group changes in poses into actions

(Other related articles on Blender 2.49 Scripting are listed at the end of this page.)
