MySQL High Availability Framework Explained – Part II: Semisynchronous Replication

Scalegrid

In Part I , we introduced a High Availability (HA) framework for MySQL hosting and discussed various components and their functionality. Semisynchronous replication, which is natively available in MySQL, helps the HA framework to ensure data consistency and redundancy for committed transactions. Let’s discuss some of the key MySQL settings used to ensure optimal behavior for high availability and data consistency in our framework.
