I have a problem that I am trying to wrap my head around, and I am hoping someone in this
group can help me. We have been testing cluster for a while now, and we have liked how
cluster has performed thus far. However, before we move into deploying cluster, I would
like to know the answers to a couple of scalability questions.
On our current system, we have 4 data nodes, and 2 mysqld nodes that run about 60,000
queries a minute. We expect our traffic to increase significantly over the next couple of
years, and I am look for some guides, or any source of information that will help answer
the following questions.
1. How can get a determination of how my cluster configuration is performing. Given my 4
data node, 2 mysqld nodes, 60,000 query a minute load, how close am I to impacting
2. Is there any benchmark data out there?
3. How do I know when/how to add nodes to the cluster? For example, what is the
deference between adding a mysqld node, and a data node, and how do I know when it would
be necessary to add either?
4. Is there any tips/procedures used to measure performance of cluster?
Thank for any help you can provide.

Subject: Re: Converting MyISAM with 300GB to NDB.
Try ndb_size.pl script on the 300GB database (it will take some time) to
get the settings necessary for NDB, however based on the amount of data
and the limited amount of RAM, unless you seriously upgrade your RAM and
add several servers in the equation, I don't see how this would be
achievable with this H/W configuration.
