AppsCode held a webinar on “Manage Percona XtraDB Cluster Day-2 Operations using KubeDB” on 6th October 2022. The contents discussed on the webinar:

  • Deploy Percona XtraDB Cluster Using KubeDB
  • Horizontal Scaling
  • Vertical Scaling
  • Reconfigure Percona XtraDB Cluster
  • Reconfigure TLS
  • Upgrading
  • Volume Expansion

Description of the Webinar

It is required to install the followings to get started:

  • KubeDB Provisioner
  • KubeDB Ops-Manager
  • Cert Manager

Live demo of the webinar is started with provisioning a TLS secured Percona XtraDB Cluster of 3 nodes using KubeDB Provisioner Operator. When the cluster got ready, Horizontal scaling is demonstrated by horizontally upscaling and downscaling of the cluster using KubeDB HorizontalScaling OpsRequest. Then the Percona XtraDB Cluster is scaled vertically with KubeDB VerticalScaling OpsRequest. Memory and CPU of the database containers were vertically scaled using this OpsRequest.

After that, Reconfiguration of Percona XtraDB Cluster is demonstrated by updating mysql variable max_connections using KubeDB Reconfigure OpsRequest. Also, Existing TLS Certificate configurations of Percona XtraDB Cluster were updated using KubeDB ReconfigureTLS OpsRequest.

Later, The Percona XtraDB Cluster is updated from version 8.0.26 to version 8.0.28 using KubeDB Upgrade OpsRequest.

Lastly, It’s demonstrated how to expand the volume of existing Percona XtraDB Cluster using KubeDB VolumeExpansion OpsRequest.
