Cluster alert rule on pmm

Hi Team,

I am using MYSQL xtradb cluster with 5 nodes. I defined an alarm on pmm for Mysql down situations and there is no problem, it works properly.
Recently, nodes were disconnected from the cluster, I was not aware of this situation because the services were working. At the cluster level, I want to receive an alert when any node falls out of the cluster . If there is a ready template or method for this, please let me know.

Hello bthnklc,
Are you using Alertmanager as the alerting solution?
If that a case You may want to create a rule something like below:

  • alert: GaleraNodeDown
    expr: wsrep_local_state < 4
    for: 1m
    severity: critical
    summary: “Galera Cluster Node Down”
    description: “Node {{ $labels.instance }} is not in the ‘Synced’ state”

Hi Denis ,
Thank you for your response.
We are using PMM but I couldn’t find where to do it. Can you direct me?

Hi bthnklc,

Hi @Denis_Subbota ,

Current version: 2.41.2 (March 19, 2024 UTC)


for version 2.41.2 you will be able to find Alerting → Alert rules
To create a alert rule you need first to create template for this:

For expression you can use mysql_global_status_wsrep_cluster_status[5m] < [[ .threshold ]]
and as threshold value set 1 so alert will be triggered anytime when your pxc status is not equal 1 (Sync )

and onse it’s created you will be able to add rule:
