The purpose of this spec is to upgrade MariaDB from v5.5 to v10.0

https://blueprints.launchpad.net/openstack-ansible/+spec/MariaDB-upgrade-to-v10

Problem description

MariaDB + Galera is presently using v5.5 which is old and should be upgraded. Additionally, we are using xtrabackup v1 which was deprecated in favor of xtrabackup v2 as such that should be changed as we upgrade to v10 so that we can take advantage of the performance and security enhancement available in the new releases.

Proposed change

  • Upgrade MariaDB - this is a package change as well as upstream mariadb repo change
  • Change xtrabackup to xtrabackup-v2 - This will add a configuration section in the default my.cnf for the xtrabackup client(s).

Alternatives

Leave everything the way it is.
