Re: Can't find log after Galera's SST


What SST method are you using? Based on this I expect you are using rsync.

I imagine someone knows more detailed answers here, but from my understanding:

Internally the bin/wsrep_sst_rsync script indicates it needs "flush
tables" to the server and the server runs this "sst_flush_tables()"
function that effectively runs:

+ reload_acl_and_cache(thd, REFRESH_ENGINE_LOG | REFRESH_BINARY_LOG, ...)

Which I think is equivalent to FLUSH ENGINE LOGS / FLUSH BINARY LOGS.
I think around this point it also sets innodb_disallow_writes to stop
InnoDB's background I/O (so rsync can be consistent).

At that point the bin/wsrep_sst_rsync script graps the last
$BINLOG_N_FILES binary logs, which I believe is hardcoded to '1' and
seems to be evaluated after this flush condition.   But internally I
guess InnoDB can have a prepared transaction related to a previous

I've wrestled with similar problems writing backup recovery routines
for MariaDB + snapshot backups (typically via LVM snapshots), where I
typically have to go 2 logs back and it seems to eliminate this kind
of failure.  You might be able to bump up BINLOG_N_FILES in
/usr/bin/wsrep_sst_rsync (or wherever it is located) and see if that
resolves your race condition.

Alternatively I think percona-xtrabackup has solved this problem[1] a
while back as well, so a different wsrep-sst-method may be an option.
 Although xtrabackup has its own problems - in particularly I've found
that xtrabackup currently doesn't handle lost+found directories too
well[2], so you either have to avoid having the datadir directly under
the mountpoint or use some other filesystem (such as XFS) that doesn't
create lost+found.  I suppose if you're using encryption, xtrabackup
is also not currently an option. :)
