+6 Vote Up -0Vote Down

If you want to know more about MySQL and MariaDB plugins read below. Our (Andrew Hutchings and mine) book MySQL 5.1 Plugins Development was just published by Packt. As far as I know it’s the first and the only book completely dedicated to MySQL Plugin API. It covers all existing in 5.1 plugin types, from Daemon to Storage Engines, and does not shun from explaining less known or poorly understood features of the plugin API. It describes newer plugin API extensions too – such as authentication plugins and recent

    Rename Maria Contest Winner
    +3 Vote Up -8Vote Down

    After two months of submissions, Monty Program employee review, community voting and Monty’s final decision, we are happy to announce that the Maria storage engine will henceforth be known as …

    Aria!

    Congratulations to Chris Tooley who suggested the name. Chris said about Aria in his submission, “Maria without the ‘M’, plus aria is a pleasant musical term.” Chris is now the proud new owner of a System 76 Meerkat net-top computer. Thanks to our good friends at System76 for providing this nifty prize.

    Hopefully, in time, “Aria” will also be a pleasing database engine term. And now we will not have the confusion between MariaDB and Maria.

    Announcing TokuDB v4.0
    +1 Vote Up -0Vote Down

    Tokutek is pleased to announce immediate availability of TokuDB for MySQL, version 4.0. It is designed for continuous querying and analysis of large volumes of rapidly arriving and changing data, while maintaining full ACID properties.

    New in TokuDB v4.0 is our multi-threaded Fast Loader. Capable of utilizing all available CPU cores, the Fast Loader greatly accelerates creating a new index or initializing a database with a bulk load. On an 8 core machine, loading operations speed up by over 4x and with 16 cores the acceleration is even greater.

    Other improvements in v4.0 include:

    • Shorter Logfiles – The logs needed for ACID transactions are now considerably
      smaller. In addition to saving disk space, smaller logs means faster recovery in many cases.
    • Faster Logfile Reclamation – When a

    April 1, 2010. Tokutek’s acquisitions of Oracle, Apple, HP, Microsoft and Google were today blocked by the European Union on the basis that the announced acquisitions were “in bad taste”.

    If you have been wondering why the overview and graphs pages say “no data to display” on the graphs when you first install Kontrollbase, it’s because there’s no data in the database being returned from the queries that generate the graphs – this is because a new install has no data to graph.
