In this release, we have prioritized improving our high availability setup (CMON HA) for ClusterControl. It is an active/passive solution using the Raft protocol between a CMON controller ‘leader’ and ‘followers’.

A CMON controller is the primary process in ClusterControl and it’s the ‘control plane’ to manage and monitor the databases.

To use CMON HA, you will basically need to do the following:

  • Use a shared MySQL database cluster that all CMON controllers will use as the shared storage. Our recommendation is to use a MySQL Galera cluster which provides additional high availability of the database cluster.
  • Install several ClusterControl nodes, at minimum 3 nodes for the quorum/voting process to work.
  • These should be set up to connect/share the same CMON database and have identical rpc_key (cmon.cnf) and RPC_TOKEN (bootstrap.php) secrets. Add the IP of the host of the Controller node to the RPC_BIND_ADDRESSES parameter in the /etc/default/cmon file on all CMON nodes.
  • Next, enable CMON HA using the s9s CLI on one of the CMON controller nodes. On the selected ‘leader’ CMON controller node enable CMON HA using the s9s CLI.
    s9s controller —enable-cmon-ha
  • Restart the other CMON controller ‘follower’ nodes.
    systemctl restart cmon
  • Verify that you have a leader and few followers using the s9s CLI
    s9s controller —list —long

Finally in order to set up the web application to handle ‘leader’ failures transparently we can use a load balancer like HAProxy which will failover to a ‘leader’ node that provides the ‘main/active’ web application. This involves installing HAProxy and configuring it to health check the CMON nodes, which can be achieved by using xinetd and a custom script to call on the CMON RPC API interface.

Please see the online documentation on CMON HA for more detailed setup instructions.
