ClusterControl Overview

What is ClusterControl?

ClusterControl is a database management software that helps businesses streamline operations related to backups, upgrades, configuration, performance tracking, and more. The monitoring functionality lets data analysts conduct health checks and monitor database stacks across multiple data infrastructures.

ClusterControl enables administrators to configure role-based access rights, provide single sign-on capabilities, maintain an audit trail, and log user activity, ensuring data security and business compliance. The operational reporting module allows supervisors to gain insight into backup processes, data clusters, upgrades, and data definition language (DDL) changes. The performance toolbox lets employees manage queries, compare query performance with historical data, and monitor schema performance.

ClusterControl comes with an API, which allows businesses to integrate the system with several third-party solutions, such as Slack, Telegramm Zabbix, PagerDuty, HipChat, and more. The configurations management module lets staff members create and store custom configuration templates. It also lets users detect anomalies within the database, and uses pre-programmed recovery algorithms to automatically respond to multiple failure types.

We start using clustercontrol and stopped looking for alternatives

We are now able to scale up to meet user demand as well as administer our databases from a single point.

Installing and configuring steps need some expert administration.. Because wrong settings may occured to lost your databases.. But with some calm, a successful installation can be made with patient and careful work. After installation everything was perfect.. Query monitor is also perfect for missing database settings.. Our database is almost better than single host installation with 3 nodes in ClusterControl..

We are much better with it, than without it.

CLusterControl is a mature and easy to use product for management of database clustering...

I've been following SeveralNines a couple of years and along with that way, I discovered the maturity of their product ClusterControl. All kinds of companies find their way to optimal data, for example, companies which are operating several database types that all need attending to. For such companies, Cluster Control is a very interesting solution to consider as it automates a lot of important tasks. But also at larger companies like VidaXL with a few dozen database nodes, the automatic recovery features for clusters are a great enrichment for their database operations.

We are now able to scale up to meet user demand as well as administer our databases from a single point.

Pros

Ease of use is one. We love the features and how it brings some other related services under one administrative control e.g. haproxy. Reports in their various forms and the ability to create custom reports are some of the features we're most in love with as well. Clustercontrols's quick provisioning and decommissioning is a right fit for our scaling needs.

Cons

Customer support. For some reason I am not able to reach customer support via email and for that reason we're stuck using the community edition with reduced features at this time.

Thank you for the feedback, I will make sure we get in touch with you to make sure you get the support you need!

Our database is almost better than single host installation with 3 nodes in ClusterControl..

Pros

In the first install, it takes harder than console management for MAriaDB cluster for our 3 database servers. But after using its features, I saw that deploy & install zero configuration was easier than using a database.. Inserting & removing nodes to active cluster is a perfect module.. Tools of clusters are better than ever, haProxy, tuning options and others are very comfortable and reportable with ClusterControl..

Cons

Adding nodes and hosts are very easy but I couldn't remove hosts from the active cluster.. There were some errors occured and also I've lost my all databases due to wrong settings.. But as a god mess, I have backups and re-installed it from zero config to fix all..

We are much better with it, than without it.

Pros

I like the monitoring and graphing. It's a great way to centralize management of multiple systems.

Cons

No easy way to have a free license for testing features in a sandbox environment without obtaining temporary license.
No way to see top processes and the resources they are consuming and be able to kill processes.
ClusterControl screen refresh can be extremely slow, and even require restart when open for periods of time.
Documentation is lacking in many respects on how to's and just general definitions of things are too generic.

I've been following SeveralNines a couple of years and along with that way, I discovered the maturity of their product ClusterControl. All kinds of companies find their way to optimal data, for example, companies which are operating several database types that all need attending to. For such companies, Cluster Control is a very interesting solution to consider as it automates a lot of important tasks. But also at larger companies like VidaXL with a few dozen database nodes, the automatic recovery features for clusters are a great enrichment for their database operations.

Pros

1. Automatic recovery of database (replication) clusters.
2. In my opinion one of the biggest challenges is to have in-depth knowledge about all their different database platforms being used. The builtin intelligence, advisory and health checking features of ClusterControl helps to overcome a big chunk of that gap.
3. Ease of deployment, in less then 15 minutes we are able to get a MariaDB or Percona cluster running.

Cons

Faster and further development of features for other database platforms besides MySQL and MongoDB would be encouraged by me. For example PostgreSQL features and maturity could be improved.

Response from Severalnines

Thank you for the feedback! We are working to add more features and more database technologies with each release! PostgreSQL is definitely a priority for us :)

experience is good you can rely on this software dashboard is great. you can spot the problems right away.

Pros

it gives you a good overall situation overview. you can see current load of servers, queries per sec, node health status etc. the query type distribution is also great. before the cc app i do not know how i managed to keep things up, now i feel comfortable when i see the cc dashboard.

Cons

i can not seem to get the active query log to work correctly. detailed tutorials about setting up the software and how to use features are must. i like to know how stuff works so details about inner workings should exist in a humanly understandable format.

more details about what is going on right now would be great for eg. the connection count where does all that connection come from which IP or dbuser. things like that would increase the value of the product undoubtedly.

Response from Severalnines

Thank you for your feedback, I recommend opening a support ticket to ask your questions re the query log, I'll bet we can help you figure it all out.
