Linkbench for MySQL 5.7.8 with an IO-bound database
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

I wanted to try InnoDB transparent page compression that is new in the MySQL 5.7.8 RC. That didn't work out, so I limited my tests to old-style compression. I compared MyRocks with InnoDB from the Facebook patch for 5.6, upstream 5.6.26 and upstream 5.7.8. My performance summary is:

  • MyRocks loads …

Second day with InnoDB transparent page compression
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

My first day with InnoDB transparent page compression didn't turn out OK, but I am an optimist so onto day 2. I gave up trying to use it on a host with CentOS 6.6, XFS and a 3.10.53 kernel. I had a bit more luck with a Fedora 19 host using XFS and a 3.14.27 kernel and I ran linkbench.

You can follow along here or at bug 78277.

I configured linkbench with maxid1=100M and the database was about 100GB after the load. I used MySQL 5.7.8 with …

Percona Toolkit and systemd
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

After some recent work with systemd I’ve realized it’s power and I can come clean that I am a fan. I realize that there are multitudes of posts out there with arguments both for and against systemd but let’s look at some nice ways to have systemd provide us with (but not limited to) pt-kill-as-a-service.

This brief post introduces you to a systemd unit file and how we can leverage them to enable pt-kill at startup, have it start after mysqld and ensure that MySQL is running by using the mysql service as a dependency of pt-kill. By using systemd …

Amazon RDS Migration Tool
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Amazon has just released their RDS Migration Tool, and Pythian has recently undertaken training to use for our clients. I wanted to share my initial thoughts on the tool, give some background on its internals, and provide a walk-through on the functionality it will be most commonly used for.

There are many factors to consider when evaluating cloud service providers, including cost, performance, and high availability and disaster recovery options. One of the most critical and overlooked elements of any cloud offering though, is the ease of migration. Often, weeks are spent evaluating all of the options only to discover after the choice is made that it will take …

Introducing mysqlpump
Employee_Team +1 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Orchestrator visual cheatsheet, TL;DR the "smart" way
+1 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Orchestrator is really growing. And the amount of users (DBAs, sys admins) using it is growing. Which gives me a lot of immediate feedback in the form of "Look, there's just too many options to move slaves around! Which ones should we use?"

TL;DR look at the two visualized commands below

They are enough

The "smart" commands to end all commands

So all relocation commands are important, and give you fine-grained, pin-pointed control of the method of topology refactoring. However, most of the …
