Getting started with Performance Schema and MySQL Workbench 6.1.2 Beta
Employee +2 Vote Up -0Vote Down

MySQL’s Performance schema is a relatively new tool for measuring performance and MySQL Workbecn 6.1.2 is the latest beta of that software. I have not had a lot of time to play with performance schema but now I am taking my first steps with the help of Workbench. Startup Workbench and you will find under the Navigator an item labeled Performance Schema Setup. Flip the toggle from OFF to ON and then start exploring.

InnoDB Buffer stats by Schema are show here — one of more than twenty pre-established metrics available.

Now you can run queries and see what the costs are, where the server is waiting, or what indexes remain unused. You

MySQL Workbench Stuck in Fetching Mode
+3 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Another obscure issue I ran into not long ago was when using MySQL Workbench, and clicking on a table, it became stuck in fetching mode.

What triggered the issue was a recent MySQL upgrade, but MySQL itself, not Workbench.

After checking the error log, we saw an error like:

Incorrect definition of table mysql.proc: expected column
'comment' at position 15 to have type text, found type char(64)

Instantly, I knew mysql_upgrade needed to be ran in order to fix the “Incorrect definition” issue, and turns out that is the root cause for Workbench getting stuck in the “fetching” mode.

So the solution is to run mysql_upgrade. Should that not fix the table for some reason, then you can also fix it alternatively with:

ALTER TABLE mysql.proc MODIFY `comment` text
CHARACTER SET utf8 COLLATE utf8_bin NOT NULL;
FLUSH TABLES;

Hope this helps.

MySQL Utilities meets the world’s ugliest table
Employee +4 Vote Up -0Vote Down

In case you missed it, MySQL Utilities 1.3.0 (alpha) was released last week.  MySQL Utilities is a component of MySQL Workbench, but it’s been broken out into a separate download allowing command-line users access unencumbered by a pretty GUI interface.  Plus, it has some new features – most importantly to me, a utility (mysqlfrm) which can read .FRM files and produce CREATE TABLE statements as a result.  This will be very useful for recovery processes, in conjunction with InnoDB transportable tablespaces in situations where the InnoDB system tablespace is corrupted, and you

MySQL Utilities: The New .frm Reader Utility
Employee +7 Vote Up -0Vote Down
Have you ever wondered what was in those .frm files littered throughout your data directory? Better still, have you encountered a situation where your data is either missing (was deleted) or damaged and all you have is the .frm files but don't know the structure of the table? Well, wonder no more!

The MySQL Utilities Team is pleased to announce the newest utility - the .frm reader (mysqlfrm). This utility is designed to read .frm files and produce a facsimile of the CREATE statement for the table or view.

That's Impossible! How Can That Work?


It works by making a copy of the .frm file(s) and launching a new, read-only instance of your existing server. The server need not be running but you are required to provide an open port for the new instance with the --port option.

The utility will launch the cloned server without

Introducing MySQL Utilities release-1.3.0
Employee +5 Vote Up -0Vote Down
The MySQL Utilities Team is pleased to announce a major advancement of MySQL Utilities. It is now available as a separate download!

That's right. If you want to use MySQL Utilities without installing MySQL Workbench, you can do that now.

The Utilities release-1.3.0 has been built for Windows Installer, RPM archive, and .tar/.zip. We have also made downloads for source only if you want to use Utilities to develop your own utilities or install the product in custom location. We plan to add other repositories in the future.

Is that it? Well, not quite. We have also included a new utility - the .frm Reader. See the blog, "New Utility: .frm Reader" for more information.

Using MySQL for Excel
Employee +4 Vote Up -0Vote Down

I recently had a need to import a bunch of data into MySQL, and for reasons I won’t get into here, LOAD DATA INFILE wasn’t working for me.  I was in a hurry to get the data into MySQL so that I could filter it, and didn’t have time to work through my LOAD DATA INFILE issues.  Looking around for another way to quickly get my tab-delimited data into MySQL quickly, I decided to use the MySQL for Excel plugin.  If you haven’t seen this yet, and you have Excel, it might be worth your while.

In my case, I was able to quickly copy and paste the tab-delimited text file into an Excel spreadsheet, connect MySQL for Excel to the MySQL database and append the data to the existing table.  You’ll need to have Excel, MySQL and the MySQL for Excel plugin.  The latter

New in MySQL Utilities release-1.1.0
Employee +0 Vote Up -0Vote Down
New in MySQL Workbench 5.2.44 is the latest release of MySQL Utilities 1.1.0. This release contains a new utility called the MySQL Utilities Users' Console (mysqluc).

The MySQL Utilities Users' Console is designed to make using the utilities easier. While it is not a new utility in the sense it doesn't provide any new functionlity for managing MySQL servers or data, it does provide a unique shell environment with command completion, help for each utility, user defined variables, and type completion for options.

That's right, you no longer have to type out the entire name of the utility. For example, you can type mysqldbe and press the TAB key and it will complete the command as mysqldbexport. Don't remember the name of a database utility you want to use? That's no problem either - just type mysqldb and press TAB twice. The console will list all of

Compare and Synchronize Databases with MySQL Utilities
Employee +2 Vote Up -0Vote Down
The mysqldiff and mysqldbcompare utilities were designed to produce a difference report for objects and in the case of mysqldbcompare the data. Thus, you can compare two databases and produce a report of the differences in both object definitions and data rows. 

While that may be very useful, would it not be much more useful to have the ability to produce SQL commands to transform databases? Wait no longer! The latest release of MySQL Utilities has added the ability to generate SQL transformation statements by both the mysqldiff and mysqldbcompare utilities. 

To generate SQL transformations in either utility, simply use the --sql option to tell the utility to produce the statements.

Object Transformations with mysqldiff

MySQL Utilities and Global Transaction Identifiers
Employee +7 Vote Up -0Vote Down
The new MySQL 5.6 Development Milestone Release (DMR) includes many new enhancements. One of the most impressive is the use of Global Transaction Identifiers (GTIDs) for replication. With GTIDs enabled, administrators no longer need to keep track of binary log files and positions. In a nutshell, GTIDs simplify the setup and maintenance of replication.

MySQL Utilities has taken this a step further by providing two new utilities that automate two of the most complex replication administration tasks - switchover and failover. Switchover is changing the role of an active, healthy master to one of its slaves whereas failover is the act of promoting a candidate slave to become the new master. Clearly, switchover is an elective operation and failover is performed when there are issues with the master.

The GTID utilities are included in release-1.0.5 of

2011, A great year for MySQL in review...
+11 Vote Up -0Vote Down
I see so many posts on what happened to company X, product Y and dream Z that I couldn't resist the temptation to summarize this great year for MySQL. At the end of 2010, Oracle did an announcement we were all waiting for: MySQL 5.5 is GA! Another year has passed since then and it's time to reflect on what has been done.

I know this is a long post. I tried to rewrite it at least 10 times to make it shorter, but I couldn't condense the list. Hence, I wrote a summary in the beginning for those who don't want to read it all.

I believe that 2011 was an exceptional year for MySQL and I really enjoy being part of this team. I wish all of us a lot of success and fun in the years to come!
