Backup glossary [Backup series #1]

In the backup glossary we asked if anyone knew how to get logical data out of physical InnoDB files. Mike Hamrick of Blue Gecko wrote in to say that Percona's InnoDB recovery tool helps to do just that. He writes:

"The 'page_parser' tool will read ibdata files or individual .ibd files and turn them into a series of 16k page files suitable for processing …

Fantastic VoltDB presentation (video and slides available) by Tim Callaghan at the Boston MySQL User Group
+4 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Special thanks to Tim Callaghan for giving a fantastic presentation of VoltDB at Monday's Boston MySQL User Group meeting. Even though the title was "for SQL developers" there was a lot of content for DBAs as well (how backups are done, what the data and server-level architecture is, etc). It was an EXCELLENT presentation on how VoltDB works, and what applications it is and is not appropriate for. The video is almost 2 hours long; there's a LOT of excellent information in it.

How I hacked the HP Mini Mobile drive port to be a normal USB port
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

So I got my hands on an HP mini 1000 last week. Not bad for $250 at Best Buy, although it has needed some help, namely:

- 2 Gb RAM - already had a stick, free for me (otherwise $20), easy to pop in.

- USB to VGA adapter - HP has a nice proprietary VGA port, to which they didn't have an adapter for a long time (6 months or so), the adapters exist, but they're …
