+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

MariaDB 10.1.3 was recently released, and is available for download here:

https://downloads.mariadb.org/mariadb/10.1.3/

This is the 1st beta, and 4th overall, release of MariaDB 10.1, so there are a lot of new changes, functionalities added, defaults changed, and many bugs fixed (I counted 420 – 117 in 10.1.2 & 637 in 10.1.1, fwiw).

Since it’s beta, I’ll only cover the major changes and additions, and omit covering general bug fixes (feel free to browse them all here). …

MariaDB 5.5.42 was recently released (it is the latest MariaDB 5.5), and is available for download here:

https://downloads.mariadb.org/mariadb/5.5.42/

MySQL 5.5.42 Overview and Highlights
+1 Vote Up -0Vote Down

MySQL 5.5.42 was recently released (it is the latest MySQL 5.5, is GA), and is available for download here:

http://dev.mysql.com/downloads/mysql/5.5.html

This release, similar to the last 5.5 release, is mostly uneventful.

There were only 3 “Functionality Added or Changed” bugs this time, all related to SSL, and only 9 bugs overall fixed.

Out of the 9 bugs, there were 2 InnoDB bugs, and 1 replication bug, all of which seemed rather minor or obscure. Here are the ones worth noting:

  • Support for the SSL 2.0 and SSL 3.0 protocols has …

Is your server vulnerable?

This can be tested using the following GIST

If the result is 0; the server is not providing the EXPORT cipher; and as such is not vulnerable.

Is your client vulnerable? …

Using Master-Master for failover? :(
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Using master-master for MySQL? To be frankly we need to get rid of that architecture. We are skipping the active-active setup and show why master-master even for failover reasons is the wrong decision.

So why does a DBA thinks master-master is good for in a failover scenario?

  • The recovered node does get his data automatically.
  • You need not to use a backup for recovery.

Please remember: MySQL Replication is async

Again: MySQL Replication is async. Even the so called semi-sync Replication!

So following is quite likely.

See a nice master-master …
