You must verify that each process in the wild cluster has a valid PID file. For purposes of this discussion, a valid PID file has the following characteristics:
The file name is in the format of
node_idis the node ID used for the process.
The file is located in the data directory used by the process.
The first line of the file contains the process ID of the node process, and only that process ID.
To check the PID file for the management node process, log in to a system shell on host
198.51.100.102, change to the management node's data directory as specified by the
Datadirparameter in the cluster's configuration file, then check to see whether the PID file is present. On Linux, you can use the command shown here:
$> ls ndb_*.pid ndb_50.pid
Check the content of the matching
.pidfile using a pager or text editor. We use more for this purpose here:
$> more ndb_50.pid 10221
The number shown should match the ndb_mgmd process ID. We can check this on Linux using the ps command:
$> ps -ef | grep ndb_mgmd ari 10221 1 0 19:38 ? 00:00:09 /home/ari/bin/cluster/bin/ndb_mgmd --config-file=/home/ari/bin/cluster/wild-cluster/config.ini --config-cache=false --ndb-nodeid=50
The management node PID file satisfies the requirements listed at the beginning of this section.
Next, we check the PID files for the data nodes, on hosts
198.51.100.104. Log in to a system shell on
198.51.100.103, then obtain the process ID of the ndbd process on this host, as shown here:
$> ps -ef | grep ndbd ari 12838 1 0 Nov08 ? 00:10:12 ./bin/ndbd --initial --ndb-nodeid=2 --ndb-connectstring=198.51.100.102
As specified in the cluster's configuration file, the node's
/home/ari/bin/cluster/wild-cluster/2/data. Go to that directory to look for a file named
$> ls ndb_*.pid ndb_2.pid
Now check the content of this file, and you are going to see the process ID for angel process for the data node:
$> more ndb_2.pid 12838
There should be no need to adjust the PID files to contain the data node processes' own PIDs, as that should have been taken care of by the
--remove-angeloption used with the
import clustercommand at the last step of the import process. The data nodes are ready for import as long as they have valid PID files containing the PIDs for their angel processes.
We are ready to proceed to the mysqld node running on host
To check the PID file for the mysqld node: the default location for it is the data directory of the node, specified by the
datadiroption in either a configuration file or at the command line at the start of the mysqld process. Let's go to the data directory
198.51.100.104and look for the PID file.
$> ls *.pid localhost.pid
Notice that the MySQL Server could have been started with the
--pid-fileoption, which puts a PID file at a specified location. In the following case, the same mysqld node has been started with the mysqld_safe script, and the ps command reveals the value for the
$> ps -ef | grep mysqld ari 11999 5667 0 13:15 pts/1 00:00:00 /bin/sh ./bin/mysqld_safe --defaults-file=/home/ari/bin/cluster/wild-cluster.cnf --ndb-nodeid=51 ari 12136 11999 1 13:15 pts/1 00:00:00 /home/ari/bin/cluster/bin/mysqld --defaults-file=/home/ari/bin/cluster/wild-cluster.cnf --basedir=/home/ari/bin/cluster/ --datadir=/home/ari/bin/cluster/wild-cluster/51/data/ --plugin-dir=/home/ari/bin/cluster//lib/plugin --ndb-nodeid=51 --log-error=/home/ari/bin/cluster/wild-cluster/51/data//localhost.localdomain.err --pid-file=/home/ari/bin/cluster/wild-cluster/51/data//localhost.localdomain.pid
As in the example, it is likely that you have a PID file that is not named in the required format for cluster import (
ndb_); and if the
--pid-fileoption was used, the PID file might not be at the required location (the data directory). Let us look into the PID file being referred to in the last example:
$> more /home/ari/bin/cluster/wild-cluster/51/data//localhost.localdomain.pid 12136
The PID file for the SQL node is at an acceptable location (inside the data directory) and has the correct contents (the right PID), but has the wrong name. Let us just copy the PID file into a correctly named file in the same directory, like this
$> cd /home/ari/bin/cluster/wild-cluster/51/data/ $> cp localhost.localdomain.pid ndb_51.pid
