Single-threaded linkbench performance for MySQL 5.7, 5.6, WebScale and MyRocks
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

The good news is that features in the pending 5.7 release look great. More good news is that InnoDB transparent page compression might be faster than the original compression feature assuming your storage system supports it. The bad news is that there are significant performance regressions for low-concurrency workloads. I previously reported this for 5.6 and 5.7.5 and have yet to see progress. While the focus on …

MyOraDump, Oracle dump utility, version 1.2
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

I have now released version 1.2 of MyOraDump, my Oracle data extraction tool. This version has one new feature, which is transaction support for MySQL format exports which does speed up loading data a lot! Trust me, it really does! Also I have fixed a bug that did cause a crash at the end of the run, I have no idea why this didn't show up before, but there you go and now it is fixed.

MyOraDump 1.2 can be downloaded sourceforge, and as usual there is also a pdf only download if you want to read up on the tool before using it.


Become a MySQL DBA blog series - Analyzing your SQL Workload using pt-query-digest
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

In our previous post, we discussed the different ways to collect data about slow queries - MySQL offers slow log, general log and binary log. Using tcpdump, you can grab network traffic data - a good and low-impact method of collecting basic metrics for slow queries. So, now that you are sitting on top of a large pile of data, perhaps tens of gigabytes of logs, how do you get a whole picture of the workload? 

Mid to large size applications tend to have hundred of SQL statements distributed …

+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

The MariaDB team released a GA version of MariaDB Galera Cluster 10 in June 2014. MariaDB 10 is the equivalent of MySQL 5.6, and therefore, packed with lots of great features.

The Primary Component in Galera Cluster
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

In this post, we will describe the Primary Component, a central concept in how Galera ensures that there is no opportunity for database inconsistency or divergence between the nodes in case of a network split.

What is the Primary Component?

The Primary Component is that set of Galera nodes that can communicate with each other over the network and contains the majority of the nodes. In case of a network partition, it is those nodes that can safely commit a transaction. A cluster can only have one such set of nodes, as there can only be one majority. No other set of nodes will commit transactions, thus removing the possibility of …

+1 Vote Up -0Vote Down

I have three pieces of information to share about MySQL::Sandbox:

  • This version is released under the Apache license. Both these changes are meant to improve and promote cooperation on the project.
  • There is an important change related to usability. When using replication with MySQL::Sandbox and MySQL 5.6+, the server UUIDs become more readable (see below).

First, some words on the location changes. About two years ago, …
