WarpSQL now has SQL shim plugins
+1 Vote Up -0Vote Down

I made some improvements to the 'proxy' inside of MySQL 5.7 that I've created for WarpSQL (Shard-Query 3).  I've made the MySQL proxy/shim pluggable and I moved the SQLClient to sql/sql_client.cc.  I've merged these changes into 'master' in my fork.

Now you can create "SQL shim" plugins (SHOW PASSWORD is implemented in plugin/sql_shim) and install them in the server like regular plugins:

-- command doesn't work
mysql> show password;
ERROR 1064 (42000): You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near 'password' at line 1

-- install the example sql_shim plugin: …

SQL injection in the MySQL server! (of the proxy kind)
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

[this is a repost of my http://shardquery.com blog post, because it did not syndicate to planet.mysql.com]

As work on WarpSQL (Shard-Query 3) progresses, it has outgrown MySQL proxy.  MySQL proxy is a very useful tool, but it requires LUA scripting, and it is an external daemon that needs to be maintained.  The MySQL proxy module for Shard-Query works well, but to make WarpSQL into a real distributed transaction coordinator, moving the proxy logic inside of the server makes more sense.

The main benefit of MySQL proxy is that it allows a script to "inject" queries between the client and …

MySQL 5.7 ghost users
+2 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Several months ago I reported on Default Users in MySQL 5.7. With the addition of the sys schema the server needs an extra user to secure operations. The problem with extra users is that, if you are not aware of their existence and why they are needed, you may easily mismanage them. For example, you may have a cleanup routine that you run when you use a new server, and the routine may have a command like

DELETE FROM mysql.user WHERE user != 'root'; …

Custom commands during MySQL Sandbox installation

MySQL Sandbox 3.1.07 adds several options to execute shell or SQL commands during the sandbox installation.

There are 3 options to run shell commands, 2 to run SQL queries, and 2 to run SQL files.

## Shell commands
--pre_start_exec=command : runs 'command' after the installation, before the server starts
--pre_grants_exec=command : runs 'command' after the server starts, before loading the …

Taking the MySQL document store for a spin
+1 Vote Up -0Vote Down

This is not a comprehensive review, nor an user guide. It's a step-by-step account of my initial impressions while trying the new MySQL XProtocol and the document store capabilities. In fact, I am barely scratching the surface here: more articles will come as time allows.

MySQL 5.7 has been GA for several months, as it was released in October 2015. Among the many features and improvements, I was surprised to see the MySQL team emphasizing the JSON data type. While it is an interesting feature per se, I failed to see the reason why so many articles and …

Using a parser plugin for improved search results with MySQL 5.7 and InnoDB.
+1 Vote Up -0Vote Down

With Unicode it is possible for strings to look the same, but with slight differences in which codepoints are used.

For example the é in Café can be <U+0065 U+0301> or <U+00E9>.

The solution is to use Unicode normalization, which is supported in every major programming language. Both versions of Café will be normalized to use U+00E9.

In the best situation the application inserting data into the database will do the normalization, but that often not the case.

This gives the following issue: If you search for Café in the normalized form it won't return non-normalized entries.

I made a …

MySQL Plugin for Oracle Enterprise Manager on VirtualBox: installation gotchas
Employee_Team +3 Vote Up -0Vote Down

At the last OOW MySQL Plugin for Oracle Enterprise Manager (OEM) was recognized as most popular MySQL product. If you don't have OEM installed, but want to test the plugin you can download OEM virtual box template. But, althought this is the easiest way to get started, you still need to make few additions. At least I had to do them when deployed such installation for MySQL …

On MySQL plugin configuration
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

MySQL offers plugin API, with which you can add different types of plugins to the server. The API is roughly the same for all plugin types: you implement an init() function, a deinit(); you declare status variables and global variables associated with your plugin, and of course you implement the particular implementation of plugin call.

I wish to discuss the creation and use of global variables for plugins.

Consider the following declaration of a global variable in …

Introducing audit_login: simple MySQL login logfile based auditing
+2 Vote Up -0Vote Down

audit_login is a simple MySQL login auditing plugin, logging any login or login attempt to log file in JSON format.

It seems that audit plugins are all the rage lately... We've developed out simple plugin a month ago as part of our database securing efforts; by auditing any login or login attempt we could either intercept or later investigate suspicious logins.

However we quickly realized there is much more to be gathered by this info. …

Comprehensive How-To for Enabling the Standard InnoDB Plugin in MariaDB and MySQL
+4 Vote Up -0Vote Down

I’m always switching back-and-forth between the 2 different InnoDB flavors in MariaDB – XtraDB+ and the standard InnoDB plugin, so I thought I’d simply post all of the various combinations in a single place. (And then I cover enabling the InnoDB Plugin in MySQL, since it’s an option in 5.1.) [Addition: Thanks to Andrew and Sergei for the tips on shortening plugin-load=. The changes are reflected below.]

Note: Below is for Windows. For Linux, simply change “.dll” to “.so” where appropriate.

MariaDB 10.0:

Do not add anything, as the standard InnoDB plugin is the current default (as of 10.0.3, although I do anticipate this changing …
