Hughes Systique Corp. > Research & Innovation > Newsletter > Issue 2 > mySQL – A typical MySQL cluster requires at least 4 nodes for deploying a High Available MySQL database cluster. The typical configuration of any enterprise application is a 2 Node solution (Active-Standby mode or Active-Active Mode). This is where the real challenge lies: in fitting the MySQL Cluster Nodes in the 2 Nodes offering the application services and then making it work in the configuration without a single point of failure.
Corosync / Pacemaker – Execute script on failover – Raymii.org – With Corosync/Pacemaker there is no easy way to simply run a script on failover. There are good reasons for this, but sometimes you want to do something simple. This tutorial describes how to change the Dummy OCF resource to execute a script on failover. In this example it is a script which triggers a few SNMP traps, sends an alert to Nagios and sends some data to Graphite. SNMP alone could be done with the ocf:heartbeat:ClusterMon resource, but the other stuff not.
UrBackup – Client/Server Open Source Network Backup for Windows and Linux – UrBackup is an easy to setup open source client/server backup system, that through a combination of image and file backups accomplishes both data safety and a fast restoration time. File and image backups are made while the system is running without interrupting current processes. UrBackup also continuously watches folders you want backed up in order to quickly find differences to previous backups. Because of that incremental file backups are really fast. Your files can be restored through the web interface or the Windows Explorer while the backups of drive volumes can be restored with a bootable CD or USB-Stick (bare metal restore). A web interface makes setting up your own backup server really easy.

Mail-in-a-Box – Mail-in-a-Box turns a fresh cloud computer into a working mail server. You get contact synchronization, spam filtering, and so on. On your phone, you can use apps like K-9 Mail and CardDAV-Sync free beta to sync your email and contacts between your phone and your box.
ClusterLabs/hawk – A web-based GUI for managing and monitoring the Pacemaker High-Availability cluster resource manager
Hawk – ClusterLabs – Hawk (HA Web Konsole) is a web-based GUI for managing and monitoring Pacemaker HA clusters. It is generally intended to be run on every node in the cluster, so that you can just point your web browser at any node to access it,

Keepalived for Linux – Keepalived is a routing software written in C. The main goal of this project is to provide simple and robust facilities for loadbalancing and high-availability to Linux system and Linux based infrastructures. Loadbalancing framework relies on well-known and widely used Linux Virtual Server (IPVS) kernel module providing Layer4 loadbalancing. Keepalived implements a set of checkers to dynamically and adaptively maintain and manage loadbalanced server pool according their health. On the other hand high-availability is achieved by VRRP protocol. VRRP is a fundamental brick for router failover. In addition, Keepalived implements a set of hooks to the VRRP finite state machine providing low-level and high-speed protocol interactions. Keepalived frameworks can be used independently or all together to provide resilient infrastructures.
The BIRD Internet Routing Daemon Project – BIRD is an Internet Routing Daemon designed to avoid all of these shortcomings, to support all the routing technology used in the today's Internet or planned to be used in near future and to have a clean extensible architecture allowing new routing protocols to be incorporated easily. Among other features, BIRD supports: * both IPv4 and IPv6 protocols * multiple routing tables * the Border Gateway Protocol (BGPv4) * the Routing Information Protocol (RIPv2) * the Open Shortest Path First protocol (OSPFv2, OSPFv3) * the Router Advertisements for IPv6 hosts a virtual protocol for exchange of routes between different routing tables on a single host a command-line interface allowing on-line control and inspection of status of the daemon soft reconfiguration[...]
How to make MaxScale High Available with Corosync/Pacemaker | MariaDB – MaxScale, an open-source database-centric router for MySQL and MariaDB makes High Availability possible by hiding the complexity of backends and masking failures. MaxScale itself however is a single application running in a Linux box between the client application and the databases – so how do we make MaxScale High Available? This blog post shows how to quickly setup a Pacemaker/Corosync environment and configure MaxScale as a managed cluster resource.

MySQL active-passive cluster | Your IT goes Linux – We will use the iSCSI Lun defined in our iSCSI cluster as a shared storage and we will run MySQL in active-passive (fail-over) mode using Pacemaker and Corosync cluster engine. The cluster will have to connect to the iSCSI target, mount the iSCSI partition on one node and start a MySQL service which has all its data on this partition.
Perl – [...] Perl has horrors, but it also has some great redeeming features. In this respect it is like every other programming language ever created. This document is intended to be informative, not evangelical. It is aimed at people who, like me: dislike the official Perl documentation at http://perl.org/ for being intensely technical and giving far too much space to very unusual edge cases learn new programming languages most quickly by "axiom and example" wish Larry Wall would get to the point already know how to program in general terms don't care about Perl beyond what's necessary to get the job done. This document is intended to be as short as possible, but no shorter[...]
