On the Buses
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down
To my fondest community, the time is near where we will meet again, share ideas and relax in each other's company at the MySQL Community Dinner in London. In my last post I directed you to an Eventbrite page to register for your seat at the dinner and today I want to make you aware that the Conference provider, Percona are going to facilitate some transport between the conference venue and the restaurant. So I want to thank Tom and Kortney for organising this for us. There will be room for 72 of us so it's your task not to be the 73rd person in the line.

New Webinar: 9 DevOps Tips for Going in Production with Galera Cluster for MySQL - November 11th
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down
October 21, 2014 By Severalnines

 

Galera is a MySQL replication technology that can simplify the design of a high availability application stack. With a true multi-master MySQL setup, an application can now read and write from any database instance without worrying about master/slave roles, data integrity, slave lag or other drawbacks of asynchronous replication.

 

And that all sounds great until it’s time to go into production. Throw in a live migration from an existing database setup and devops life just got a bit more interesting ...

 

So if you are in devops, then this webinar is for

Talking at Open Source India 2014
Employee +0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

I will be talking at Open Source India scheduled at NIMHANS convention center at Bangalore on 7th and 8th of Nov 2014.

Oracle has been associated with the Open Source India conference for the past 4 years and this will be the 5th year when we will be taking part in this conference and talking about MySQL to the open source community.

OSI gives us a great opportunity and a platform to speak to and hear from the open source community. There have been some great interactions with developers, users, customers of MySQL and some really great people involved with the open source movement in India.

We look forward to interact with the open source community again. While we will likely learn much this conference about the progress of the open source community in India, we will also be informing you about the fantastic

XFS and EXT4 Testing Redux
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

In my concluded testing post, I declared EXT4 my winner vs XFS for my scenario. My coworker, @keyurdg, was unwilling to let XFS lose out and made a few observations:

  • XFS wasn’t *really* being formatted optimally for the RAID stripe size
  • XFS wasn’t being mounted with the inode64 option which means that all of the inodes are kept in the first 2TB. (Side note: inode64 option is default in newer kernels but not on CentOS 6’s 2.6.32)
  • Single threaded testing isn’t entirely accurate

MySQL: The most popular open source database for WWW
Employee +1 Vote Up -0Vote Down

(Note : This an Article from last year when MySQL5.6 was released)

While Database technology is one of the oldest branches of computer science, it remains a fundamental computer technology that continues to attract new research. The current focus of Databases technology is towards adapting hot new tends like multi-core chips, solid state devices, NOSQL and Cloud. So what does a contemporary internet developer look for in a database for the internet era? And why does MySQL remain the most popular database for the web?

 

For a database to be useful while developing products for the Web, the most important requirements are that it should be quick and easy to download, quickly to set up, powerful enough to get the job done, be fast and flexible to use and finally be scalable on the newest hardware. Compatibility with

High Performance Drupal with MariaDB

Mon, 2014-10-20 09:31maria-luisaraviol

I am back from 2014 Amsterdam Drupalcon where MariaDB Corporation was present as sponsor. It was my first time there and I must say I was really impressed by the amount of people attending the conference (around 2300 people) and the interest that the people showed for MariaDB.

We had many conversations with several kind of engineers, developers, providers and just for a few of them MariaDB was something new to discover; the great majority of them either were already using it or were planning to do it but they did not manage to find some “free” time to do it yet.

What impressed me, was that almost all of the MariaDB happy users just replaced their previous database server installation (MySQL or Percona) with MariaDB with the same approach they might have had for a standard database server

MariaDB 10.1.1: no more .frm’s for performance_schema tables
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Yes! In MariaDB 10.1.1 tables in PERFORMANCE_SCHEMA do not use .frm files. These files are not created, not read — in fact, PERFORMANCE_SCHEMA tables never touch the disk at all.

This became possible due to a lesser-known feature of MariaDB — new table discovery (“old table discovery” was implemented in MySQL for NDB Cluster in 2004), implemented in MariaDB 10.0.2. Instead of reading and parsing .frm files, MariaDB simply asks PERFORMANCE_SCHEMA table, what structure it has, and because these tables always have a fixed structure, the table directly returns it to MariaDB with no need for any external data dictionary.

It also means, you never need to upgrade PERFORMANCE_SCHEMA tables, they

Making UUID() and RAND() replication safe
+1 Vote Up -0Vote Down

MySQL's UUID() and RAND() functions both provide with (pseudo) indeterministic result. UUID()'s result is moreover bound to the host on which it executes. For this reason, both are unsafe to replicate with STATEMENT binlog format. As an example, consider:

master> create table test.uuid_test (id int, u varchar(64));

master> insert into test.uuid_test values (1, UUID());
Query OK, 1 row affected, 1 warning (0.03 sec)

master> select * from test.uuid_test;

Improved Fault Diagnosis UI
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

In our efforts to improve MySQL monitoring, we recently enhanced our fault diagnosis UI. Adaptive Fault Detection has been an integral part of our suite, and we are excited for the UI updates that will help you better manage your databases.

The new release provides a more compact view, allowing you to quickly assess potential problems before they become bigger. Notice how a tiny, tiny server stall was caught by our algorithm. Fault detection has allowed us to get remarkable results from our weak EC2 boxes by keeping them running really cleanly.

We have also added more sections showing metrics such as top processes, network sockets, and

MariaDB 10.1 Brings Compound Statements
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

A very old post of mine in 2009, MySQL’s stored procedure language could be so much more Useful suggested that it would be nice if MySQL could be adapted to use compound statements directly from the command line in a similar way to the language used for stored procedures. I’ve just seen that this seems to be possible now in MariaDB 10.1. See the release notes.

I now need to look at this. So thanks, it looks like this feature request is now available.
