To set a test environment for MYSQL tests i.e. apache benchmark split from production. To achieve this FlexClone license at least on the controller having the data must be available.

Check volumes involved. Create clones.

Check that the size and snap reservation is ok, otherwise add some space:

[mysql@dbvrtg046 mysql]$ mount
dbnasg405:/vol/drupal03 on /ORA/dbs03/DRUPAL type nfs (rw,remount,hard,nointr,rsize=32768,wsize=32768,tcp,actimeo=0,timeo=600,addr=
dbnasg301:/vol/drupal02 on /ORA/dbs02/DRUPAL type nfs (rw,remount,hard,nointr,rsize=32768,wsize=32768,tcp,actimeo=0,timeo=600,addr=
dbnasg406:/vol/drupal04 on /ORA/dbs04/DRUPAL type nfs (rw,remount,hard,nointr,rsize=32768,wsize=32768,tcp,actimeo=0,timeo=600,addr=

dbnasg405> df -Ah   # Total space report
Aggregate                total       used      avail capacity
dbdskg409                 40TB       16TB       24TB      40%
dbdskg409/.snapshot        0TB        0TB        0TB     ---%

dbnasg405> vol size drupal03
vol size: Flexible volume 'drupal03' has size 100g.
-- In case needed use to set a new size: vol size VOLNAME XXXg 
dbnasg405> vol autosize drupal03
Volume autosize is currently ON for volume 'drupal03'.
The volume is set to grow to a maximum of 200 GB, in increments of 5 GB.
-- In case needed use to autosize to set a new one: vol autosize VOLNAME -m XXXg -i Xg on
dbnasg405> snap reserve drupal03
Volume drupal03: current snapshot reserve is 20% or 20971520 k-bytes.

-- It not set use: snap reserve VOLNAME PERCENTAGE
-- Please think that if you set i.e. 20% that means that for a volume of 100g the effective size will be 80g plus 20g of snapshot space.
dbnasg405> snap list drupal03  --snapshots available
Volume drupal03

  %/used       %/total  date          name
----------  ----------  ------------  --------
  2% ( 2%)    0% ( 0%)  Jun 09 14:57  snapscript_09062011_170006_56 
  5% ( 3%)    0% ( 0%)  Jun 08 14:57  snapscript_08062011_170010_55
  8% ( 3%)    0% ( 0%)  Jun 07 14:57  snapscript_07062011_170003_52
 10% ( 3%)    1% ( 0%)  Jun 06 14:57  snapscript_06062011_170004_50
 12% ( 2%)    1% ( 0%)  Jun 05 14:57  snapscript_05062011_170004_49
 13% ( 1%)    1% ( 0%)  Jun 04 14:57  snapscript_04062011_170004_48

If everthing is ok create the clones.
Check the clone license is on:

 flex_clone XXXXXX

If set then proceed:

vol clone create clonedrupal03 -b drupal03 snapscript_09062011_170006_56

Naming convention: l any clone should be called like cloneVOLNAME .

You should see sth like when listing snapshots:

dbnasg405> snap list drupal03
Volume drupal03

  %/used       %/total  date          name
----------  ----------  ------------  --------
  2% ( 2%)    0% ( 0%)  Jun 09 14:57  snapscript_09062011_170006_56 (busy,vclone)
  5% ( 3%)    0% ( 0%)  Jun 08 14:57  snapscript_08062011_170010_55
  8% ( 3%)    0% ( 0%)  Jun 07 14:57  snapscript_07062011_170003_52

Please repeat for the binary logs. You may need to create an snapshot, then after checking you have enough space do:

snap reserve drupal02 20
snap create drupal02 fortest

And again:

vol clone create clonedrupal02 -b drupal02 fortest

In this way all data needed to open the database is there and independent from production.

Create a mysql instance based on clone volumes.

The recommended way will be to use a server with no mount points on production volumes.
For this run we use a server which is a passive node in a cluster. Therefore extra care must be taken in order to avoid touching the production.

First mount the clones:

mkdir -p /ORA/dbs10/DRUPAL
chown mysql:mysql /ORA/dbs10/DRUPAL

mkdir -p /ORA/dbs13/DRUPAL
chown mysql:mysql /ORA/dbs13/DRUPAL

sudo mount -o  hard,nointr,rsize=32768,wsize=32768,tcp,actimeo=0,timeo=600 dbnasg301:/vol/clonedrupal02 /ORA/dbs10/DRUPAL
sudo mount -o  hard,nointr,rsize=32768,wsize=32768,tcp,actimeo=0,timeo=600 dbnasg405:/vol/clonedrupal03 /ORA/dbs13/DRUPAL

Change my.cnf properties at the clone location: /ORA/dbs13/MYSQL/brtest/my.cnf .
IMPORTANT: datadir, log-bin,port, socket, any variable involving a production location:


Start/Stop the server:

--start as mysql
mysqld_safe --defaults-file=/ORA/dbs13/MYSQL/brtest/my.cnf
mysqladmin -u PRIVILAGEUSER -pXXXXXXX  -P 5501 -h hostname shutdown


Once you have stop mysqld, please go the the appropiate controller and do:

vol offline cloneVOLNAME
vol destroy cloneVOLNAME

PLEASE consult with a NAS expert before any information destruction/deletion.
