MySQL 版本的 Amazon Aurora 會將各種記錄丟到 CloudWatch Logs 了...

剛好今天才被問是不是可以在 Amazon Aurora (MySQL-Compatible Edition) 裡面翻出有哪些 Slow Query,剛好想到這幾天發表了這個功能:「Amazon Aurora Publishes General, Slow Query and Error Logs to Amazon CloudWatch」。

You can now configure the MySQL-compatible edition of Amazon Aurora to publish general logs, slow query logs, and error logs to Amazon CloudWatch Logs. Previously, you could only publish audit logs.

看起來是要另外開 (畢竟 CloudWatch Logs 不是免費的 XD),不過以這類型的 log 產生速度與數量來說應該還行...

PostgreSQL 的 Amazon RDS Database Preview Environment

AWS 推出了 PostgreSQL 試爆場讓大家測試 XDDD:「Amazon RDS Database Preview Environment is now available」。

可以測還沒有正式 release 的版本:

The Amazon RDS Database Preview Environment is now available, offering an environment for customers to easily test beta, release candidate, and early production versions of PostgreSQL database engine software with the convenience and flexibility of Amazon RDS.

這個產品定位有點奇怪...

在 Amazon Aurora 利用 ProxySQL 的讀寫分離提昇效能

Percona 的「Leveraging ProxySQL with AWS Aurora to Improve Performance, Or How ProxySQL Out-performs Native Aurora Cluster Endpoints」這篇有夠長的,其實就是發現 AWSAmazon Aurora 只使用 Cluster Endpoint 無法壓榨出所有效能,只有當你讀寫分離拆開 Cluster endpoint 與 Reader endpoint 時才能提昇效能。主要是在推銷 ProxySQL 啦,其他的軟體應該也能達到類似的效果...

然後這張怪怪的,應該是 copy & paste 上去的關係?

因為事後再疊 ProxySQL 進去不會太困難,一般還是建議先直接用服務本身提供的 endpoint (少了一層要維護的設備),等到有遇到效能問題時再來看是卡在哪邊,如果是 R/W split 可以解決的,才用 ProxySQL 或是其他軟體來解...

AWS 提供模擬 Amazon Aurora 異常的測試功能...

Twitter 上看到 Jeff Barr 提到了在 Amazon Aurora 上的模擬 (這邊應該是講 MySQL):

指到的頁面是文件「Managing Amazon Aurora MySQL - Amazon Relational Database Service」,翻了一下 Wayback Machine,看起來之前就有了,只是現在拿出來再宣傳一下:「Managing Amazon Aurora MySQL - Amazon Relational Database Service」。

透過主動觸發 Amazon Aurora 異常,可以測試整個系統的後續反應:

  • A crash of the master instance or an Aurora Replica
  • A failure of an Aurora Replica
  • A disk failure
  • Disk congestion

前面三種都屬於 Aurora 本身的故障測試,第四種除了有可能是 Aurora 本身的問題外,也可以測壓力過大時的情境 (i.e. 前面透過 auto scaling 撐住了,但後面的資料庫可能沒有足夠的能力支撐)。

Amazon RDS 宣佈支援 PostgreSQL 10

Amazon RDS 宣佈支援 PostgreSQL 10 了:「PostgreSQL 10 now Supported in Amazon RDS」。而且 AWS 這次推出的還包括了 10.1 的 patch:

As of version 10, PostgreSQL no longer uses three-part version numbers, and is shifting to two-part version numbers. This release includes all patches from the PostgreSQL 10.1 minor version.

10 的第一個版本是去年十月初 (在「PostgreSQL 10 Released」這邊可以看到),10.1 是去年十一月初 (在「PostgreSQL 10.1, 9.6.6, 9.5.10, 9.4.15, 9.3.20, and 9.2.24 released!」),現在二月底,所以延遲大約是三個多月的時間...

10.2 是二月初,不知道會多久...

Amazon Aurora (MySQL) 推出相容於 MySQL 5.7 的版本

Amazon Aurora (MySQL) 推出相容於 MySQL 5.7 的版本了:「Amazon Aurora is Compatible with MySQL 5.7」。

不過網站上的介紹還沒更新:

Amazon Aurora is a relational database service that combines the speed and availability of high-end commercial databases with the simplicity and cost-effectiveness of open source databases. The MySQL-compatible edition of Aurora delivers up to 5X the throughput of standard MySQL running on the same hardware, and is designed to be compatible with MySQL 5.6, enabling existing MySQL applications and tools to run without requiring modification.

5.7 其中一個賣點在於支援 Spatial index (透過 R-tree),不過 AWS 的版本看起來是自己用 B-tree 加上 Z-order curve 實做:「Amazon Aurora under the hood: indexing geospatial data using Z-order curves」。

我覺得看看就好啦,拿 244GB RAM 的 r3.8xlarge 跑 1GB 的 data set,當大家是傻逼嗎...

Amazon Aurora (MySQL) 提供 Parallel Query 讓人申請使用

AWS 宣佈了 Amazon Aurora (MySQL) 支援 Parallel Query:「Amazon Aurora Parallel Query is Available for Preview」。

這邊提到的 Parallel Query 比較像是 Amazon Athena,直接把單一 Query 打散到多台機器上跑:

Amazon Aurora Parallel Query improves the performance of large analytic queries by pushing processing down to the Aurora storage layer, spreading processing across hundreds of nodes.

也就是說,這算是單一 SQL Query 平行運算的進階版本。

在這之前,AWS 都已經支援單一 Query 在單台機器上利用多 CPU 平行運算。其中 PostgreSQL 是 9.6+ 本身就有支援。Amazon Aurora (MySQL) 則是在 2016 時透過 Parallel Read Ahead 支援某些情境下的的單一 Query 多 CPU 運算了 (發現之前沒寫到...):「Amazon Aurora Update – Parallel Read Ahead, Faster Indexing, NUMA Awareness」。

這個功能目前是 Preview 階段,然後開在這些地區讓大家測試使用:

The preview is available for the MySQL-compatible edition of Amazon Aurora, and is currently available in the US East (N. Virginia), US East (Ohio), US West (Oregon), and Europe (Ireland) Regions. Sign up to get access.

這個功能提供了想要提昇效能,但懶得改架構的人可以用錢直接硬換出來...

Amazon Aurora (PostgreSQL) 也支援 Read Replica 了

Amazon Aurora (PostgreSQL) 支援 Read Replica 了:「Announcing Amazon Aurora PostgreSQL Read Replica for Amazon RDS for PostgreSQL」。

馬上想到的用途是量爆增時,如果當初有作 R/W split (讀寫分離) 就可以直接用錢撐住,不過官方給的範例是降低 RDS 轉移到 Aurora 的 downtime,這點就有點微妙...:

You can now create an Amazon Aurora PostgreSQL read replica for an Amazon RDS for PostgreSQL instance, allowing you to continuously replicate to Amazon Aurora PostgreSQL. This helps you minimize downtime when migrating a live workload from Amazon RDS for PostgreSQL to Amazon Aurora PostgreSQL, by keeping the instances in sync until you're ready to move your applications and users to Amazon Aurora PostgreSQL.

所以這次算是陸陸續續把功能補上來,在 Amazon Aurora (MySQL) 有的一般性功能,這邊就跟著先實作...

Amazon Aurora (MySQL) 的 Stored Procedure 可以跑 AWS Lambda...

查了資料才發現去年十月 Amazon Aurora (MySQL-Compatible Edition) 就支援用 AWS Lambda 當 stored procedure 了,只是當時只支援 async mode,能做的事情比較有限:「Amazon Aurora New Features: AWS Lambda Integration and Data Load from Amazon S3 to Aurora Tables」。

Now you can invoke Lambda functions directly from within an Aurora database via stored procedures or user-defined functions. Lambda integration allows you to extend the capabilities of the database and invoke external applications to act upon data changes. For example, you can create a Lambda function that sends emails to customers whenever their address in the database is updated.

前幾天發表的則是支援 sync mode,可以等到:「Amazon Aurora with MySQL Compatibility Natively Supports Synchronous Invocation of AWS Lambda Functions」。

Starting with version 1.16, we are extending this feature to be able to able to synchronously invoke Lambda functions.

Use the native function lambda_sync when you must know the result of the execution before moving on to another action.

這解掉了 MySQL 的 stored procedure 一直很殘的問題...

Amazon Aurora 的 MySQL-Compatible Edition 開始提供相容於 MySQL 5.7 的服務

Amazon AuroraMySQL-Compatible Edition 開始支援相容 MySQL 5.7 的服務:「Announcing Preview of Amazon Aurora with MySQL 5.7 Compatibility」。

Amazon Aurora with MySQL 5.7 compatibility offers enhancements such as JSON support, spatial indexes, generated columns and performance improvement of 5x over MySQL 5.7, and up to 10x for spatial datasets.

雖然目前還在 Preview (需要申請才能用),而且開放區域有限,但總算是有消息了:

The preview is currently available in US East (N. Virginia), US East (Ohio), US West (Oregon), and Canada (Montreal).

會一定要 5.7 的,主要的需求應該是在 spatial index 上吧... JSON 反倒還好。
