As the number of nodes in the cluster grows, the larger the calculated
gcs.fc_limit gets. The number of writes from the nodes also increases.
gcs.fc_single_primary option value is set to
NO (multi-primary), the
gcs.fc_limit parameter is dynamically modified to give more margin for each node to be a bit further behind applying writes.
gcs.fc_limit option is modified by the square root of the cluster size. For example, in a four-node cluster the
gcs.fc_limit is two times higher than the base value. This is done to compensate for the increasing replication rate noise.
Display Current Value
wsrep_provider_options define optional settings the node passes to the wsrep provider.
To display current
SHOW GLOBAL VARIABLES LIKE 'wsrep_provider_options';
The expected output will display the option and the value. Options with no default value, for example SSL options, will not be displayed in the output.
Set in Configuration File
When changing a setting for a wsrep_
Options are set in the
my.cnf configuration file. Use the
; delimiter to set multiple options.
The configuration file must be updated on each node. A restart to each node is needed for changes to take effect.
Use a quoted string that includes every option where you want to override the default value. Options that are not in the list will reset to their default value.
To set the option in the configuration file:
The gcs.fc_single_primary option cannot be set dynamically. It can only be set in the configuration file.
Trying to change a non-dynamic option with
SET results in an error:
