First of all, no MySQL bug reporter is perfect (if only …

My Favorite Hidden Docs Page
Employee +2 Vote Up -0Vote Down

There’s a lot to love about the MySQL product documentation – a lot of hard work from a number of very talented Oracle staff goes into it (not to mention the helpful suggestions and feedback from the community).  There is, however, one page I find myself coming back to again and again, despite the fact that it’s somewhat hard to find.  This is the MySQL Server options/variable reference page.  It’s a helpful table that lists every MySQL Server option or variable, what version it was introduced or deprecated in, …

Tungsten Replicator Filters: A trove of golden secrets unveiled
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Since I joined the company in late 2010, I have known that one of the strong points of Tungsten Replicator is its ability of setting filters. The amazing capabilities offered by Tungsten filters cannot be fully grasped unless we explain how stage replication works.

There are several default stages in the replication stream. Every stage has an extraction task and an apply task. The extraction task will get data from the previous step repository and the apply task will save the data to the …

Multi master topologies blues

Tungsten Replicator is a powerful replication engine that, in addition to providing the same features as MySQL Replication, can also create several topologies, such as

  • all-masters: every master in the deployment is a master, and all nodes are connected point-to-point, so that there is no single point of failure (SPOF).
  • fan-in: Several masters can replicate into a single slave;
  • star: It’s an all-masters topology, where one node acts as hub which simplifies the deployment at the price of creating a SPOF.

Overview

First off, the important news. Tungsten Replicator 2.1.0 was released today.

Second, I would say that I am quite surprised at how much we have done in this release. The previous release (2.0.7) was in February, which is just a few months ago, and yet it looks like ages when I see the list of improvements, new features and bug …

Why is searching the manual so hard
+5 Vote Up -0Vote Down

As a consultant I often use the MySQL Reference Manual to provide additional information for clients. I am very happy to recognize the quality of the content in the MySQL documentation, but why is the searching of the manual so, so bad?

While reading the General Security Issues section of the MySQL 5.5 manual, I performed a search for “CREATE USER”. I was not asking for anything abstract, this is an actual SQL command. I was rather horrified to find that the results could not even list …

Documentation in SQL: CALL for help()
+1 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Documentation is an important part of any project. On the projects I maintain I put a lot of effort on documentation, and, frankly, the majority of time spent on my projects is on documentation.

The matter of keeping the documentation faithful is a topic of interest. I'd like to outline a few documentation bundling possibilities, and the present the coming new documentation method for common_schema. I'll talk about any bundling that is NOT man pages.

High level: web docs

This is the initial method of documentation I used for  …
