An open-source MySQL/MariaDB GUI client on Linux
+1 Vote Up -0Vote Down

We've written a GUI application. Its command-line options are like those in the mysql client. Its graphic features are an SQL-statement text editor and a scrollable SQL result set. It runs on Linux now and we believe it could be ported to other platforms.

Here are four screenshots.


The startup is as non-GUI as can be -- in fact it gets options from the command line, or from my.cnf, the same way that the mysql client does. Wherever it seemed reasonable, we asked: What would mysql do?

  • EXPLAIN queries in real-time through the web app
  • Query Analytics for Performance Schema
  • Dashboards: customizable, shared groups of charts
  • Install and upgrade the agent with 1 command line
  • Unified UI: same time range, same host wherever you go

Measuring failover time for ScaleArc load balancer
+1 Vote Up -0Vote Down

ScaleArc hired Percona to benchmark failover times for the ScaleArc database traffic management software in different scenarios. We tested failover times for various clustered setups, where ScaleArc itself was the load balancer for the cluster. These tests complement other performance tests on the ScaleArc software – sysbench testing for latency and testing for WordPress acceleration.

We tested failover times for Percona XtraDB Cluster (PXC) and MHA (any traditional MySQL replication-based solution works pretty much the same

Building MaxScale from source with Vagrant and Puppet

MaxScale for MariaDB and MySQL hides the complexity of database scaling from the application. To streamline building MaxScale from source and running the test suite, you can automate the process with some useful tools to meet your needs.

I have created a Vagrant / Puppet setup that takes care of:

  • Creating a build / test VM with all necessary stuff installed
  • Checking out MaxScale source from git (with repository and branch being configurable)
  • Configuring the build system
  • Building and installing MaxScale
  • Starting a set of mysqld instances configured as master/slave set ready for being used by the test suite

With this set up, a virtual MaxScale

Which Compression Tool Should I Use for my Database Backups? (Part II: Decompression)
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

On my post last week, I analysed some of the most common compression tools and formats, and its compression speed and ratio. While that could give us a good idea of the performance of those tools, the analysis would be incomplete without researching the decompression. This is particularly true for database backups as, for those cases where the compression process is performed outside of the production boxes, you may not care too much about compression times. In that case, even if it is relatively slow, it will not affect the performance of your MySQL server (or whatever you are using). The decompression time, however, can be critical, as it may influence in many cases the
