Increasing the value for max_
MAX_FAILURES = 2.
To change the value of the global max_
2. This will cause all new tables and indexes to be created with
REPLICAS = 3.
Step 1: Ensure there is sufficient disk space
Ensure that the cluster has sufficient disk space for additional replicas. For more details on how to determine disk space required, see "Allocate Disk Space for Fault Tolerance and Availability with MariaDB Xpand".
Step 2: Set the Cluster-Wide Failure Threshold
sql> ALTER CLUSTER SET MAX_FAILURES = 2;
Running this command will result in a group change and an interruption in service.
Step 3: Alter Existing Tables
Tables created after the value for max_
ALTER statements for all representations that are under-protected.
sql> SELECT concat ('ALTER TABLE ',`database`, '.', `Table`, ' REPLICAS = MAX_FAILURES + 1;') FROM system.table_replicas where database not in ('system', 'clustrix_dbi', 'clustrix_statd', '_replication') GROUP BY `table`, `database` having (count(1) / count(distinct slice)) < MAX_FAILURES + 1;
The resulting SQL will look like:
sql> ALTER TABLE foo REPLICAS = 3;
Run the generated script and monitor the Rebalancer as it creates additional replicas. For additional information, see "Manage the Rebalancer for MariaDB Xpand".
