enjoying using this software since it is very helpful and interactive software

Data management

Pros

i like cluster control due to its ability to centralize the communication from both analog and digital I/O . Monitoring system activities is easy Eg managing data record on a large scale like data for organization which could have been tedious to handle.

Cons

involves keen and logical thinking and has got limitations in diffrent environments in which the software is working for example When using windows CE. when a control overlaps the cluster shell in a Touch Panel VI, the entire control is still completely visible when you build the VI into an application.

Really good solution !

2020-10-04

Before trying ClusterControl, I installed my MariaDB Galera clusters manually. it was longer and I haven't a real time monitor with the Web GUI.

Pros

Nodes management and dashboard are a plus compared to manual install and management.

Cons

I will need more time to appreciate pros and cons in depth. 30 days free trial is not enough. 60 days would be better ;)

I build a Mysql cluster with 3 nodes on a customer ibfraestructure

2018-03-01

Talking about clusters, our experience is that it fells more confortable to administrators and users to have a dashboard and automatic task.

Pros

Users feel sure with automatic backup and guided restore. Data visualization is great to understand whats happening.

Cons

If you don't have the pro version some changes on configuration are slow and complex. Alerts like system is swapping repeats over and over, however system is configured as specified in the installation guide

King of the Database Clusterization

2020-08-28

Query monitor is also perfect for missing database settings..

Pros

In the first install, it takes harder than console management for MAriaDB cluster for our 3 database servers.

Cons

Adding nodes and hosts are very easy but I couldn't remove hosts from the active cluster..

We start using clustercontrol and stopped looking for alternatives

2018-03-01

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

Pros

We love the features and how it brings some other related services under one administrative control e.g. haproxy.

Cons

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.

I am very satisfied with the trial - features, complete documentation, great MySQL/Galera resources.

2018-03-21

Without a tool like S9S ClusterControl it will be very hard to perform realtime monitoring, to be productive and to act proactively.

Pros

Ability to monitor and control all the clusters at one place and notify you in case of trouble.

Cons

Price schema compared to competitors is not so flexible (it is a bit costly to monitor large number of servers), but I believe that the S9's sales team could negotiate in order to successfully close the deal.

very good cross platform tool

2018-03-05

maybe this is the best solution, even community version, for DB tuning!

Pros

very good dashboards, you can find weak places on comparing dashboards values in one place.

Cons

1. you couldn't skip some alerts. For example, you have alert from category DBHealth about Use wsrep_sst_method=xtrabackup-v2 instead.

Feedback for ClusterControl

2020-09-03

Really ideal for managing of database. Easy to use, it has many great options (like host failure detection, etc).

Pros

Very useful if we can check the perfomance data (of database node) real-time, and add or remove node to/from cluster.

Cons

I could fix everything but wasn't easy to guess (from error message) what the real problem is.

Great product to assist in DB Cluster setup and overview

2018-08-28

Overall very happy with Several Nines and Cluster Control and I am happy our company engages with them.

Pros

* Easy to setup a new cluster or adding a node to a cluster * Easy to check the status variables of all nodes via the web dashboard

Cons

* my.cnf file templates are difficult to maintain or add to the system * Upgrading to new version usually causes hand full of issues * Creates zombie threads in Centos that have to be cleaned up with a deamon restart

CC review (Kendart Systems )

2020-09-02

Very good and would have liked to acquire a full license however right now our budget is very restricted.

Pros

The ability to have a single point of truth with RDBMS based clusters, in terms of HA, SSL traffic, backup activities, etc.

Cons

ACLs integration with LDAP based directories could be better.

Great software for managing databases

2019-02-26

So far we have only done an initial evaluation of ClusterControl and found it to be very good, but too much is changing with our backend systems right now to move forward with any possible purchase decisions. That being said we definitely see where it can solve some of our biggest problems that we have encountered with our MySQL database.

Pros

Makes many tasks that are typically very difficult very easy like monitoring, automatically failing over in case of a server problem, building new database servers and managing replication.

Cons

It would be nice to have tighter integration with MaxScale to have more options for sql aware proxies.
