The submissions are far ranging and cover some really interesting topics, making the lineup for Percona Live London really strong! What the committee looks for in a submission is how much “value” a talk will bring to the

PLUK Attendees: Show of hands
+1 Vote Up -0Vote Down
It will soon be November and we'll be queuing up to register for the Percona Live conference once again. I spoke with some of this year's Percona Live London committee we all agreed that it would be great to arrange a community dinner if there was a community interest. In the past years of the PLUK conference there has not been a community event to attend in order to discuss sessions and make new friends. I for one love the `Pythian-arranged Community Dinner` at Pedro's that occurs annually in Santa Clara during the Percona Live Conference. I know that there are many attendees that do London and CA each year and wager that they'd agree that it's a great event. So lets have it... please r.s.v.p here and if the numbers are good enough we'll schedule something the evening of the tutorials. Please let me know of your interest in the comments below. Thanks :D

Those who regularly read this blog knows how much I am excited about Percona Live London each year. Now, it is time for me to take part in the organization of this event as a member of the committee and chairman of the conference.

I am really proud to join the committee this year and very happy to share this role with Ivan, Ben, David, Todd and Kenny.

You can imagine that I am honored that Percona has made me this beautiful gift.
Now, we face the challenges!

I am also very pleased to introduce myself as a member of this committee as an employee of Dailymotion. ’Cause Dailymotion offers me an incredible chance to do my job with passion and fun, like never before.

When I started this blog I wanted to do it as honestly as possible and as humbly as

John Cesario of Go Daddy on Percona MySQL Training
+1 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Senior MySQL DBA John Cesario of Go Daddy spoke at Percona Live in April and shared his views on Percona MySQL Training. Here’s what he had to say:

“Go Daddy is passionate about helping our customers. Percona Innodb training gives us another tool to elevate our customer support to the next level. It gives us the kind of insight that only comes from understanding MySQL at a code level. This helps Go Daddy understand MySQL internals, so we can increase performance and reduce troubleshooting time. The instructors are top-notch and leverage their years of field work, providing curriculum that is both relevant and immediately practical. I highly recommend Percona training for all aspects of MySQL consumption: from developers to operational administrators.”

Why it’s beneficial to attend MySQL conferences
+1 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Peter Zaitsev speaks at the Percona Live MySQL Conference and Expo in Santa Clara, Calif. in April 2013.

In the MySQL ecosystem, there is some sort of conference or another all year long. But why are they important?

To answer this, we can split the audience into 3 groups:

- MySQL Professionnals
- MySQL Community Members
- MySQL (Future?) Users

Depending on which category you are in, you can have different expectations about conferences.

For MySQL Professionals, it’s the best opportunity to meet partners, customers and also other business players in real life – and this is a very important point.

Slides from my Percona Live “Benchmarking” presentation
+2 Vote Up -0Vote Down

I finally posted a copy of the slides from my Percona Live presentation, “Creating a Benchmarking Infrastructure that Just Works”.  The PDF is available via this link.

The content comes from my personal experiences over many years benchmarking and testing databases, usually focusing on performance.  It was an opportunity to see how far my personal benchmark infrastructure has evolved, but even better has inspired me to improve it in several areas.

I never had a chance to to my own post-conference wrap-up regarding the Percona Live show.  While waiting for my flight home at SFO airport I concluded that

Here are some of the highlights of our first week of open source:

We started hearing back from the community almost immediately after the announcement with discussions in multiple forums. We even reached #2 on Hacker News for a bit.

Open Source TokuDB Resources
+2 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Since we announced that TokuDB is now open source, there has been a lot of positive feedback (thanks!) and also some questions about the details. I want to take this opportunity to give a quick high level guide to describe what our repositories on Github are.

Here are the repositories:

  • ft-index. This repository is the “magic”. It contains the Fractal Tree data structures we have been talking about for years. This is also the main piece that was previously closed source. Here are some interesting directories:
    • src: This directory is a layer that implements an API that is similar to the BDB API.
    • locktree: an in-memory data structure that maintains transactions’ row-level locks.

I enjoyed Stewart Smith’s MySQL storage engine blog last week. In it he noted “I cannot emphasize how much more interesting TokuDB would be if it were open source.” Well, with our open source announcement yesterday, hopefully we are getting interesting.

We wanted to thank everyone for the great feedback. Here is a sampling from some of the forums where dialogue is occurring:

Announcing TokuDB v7: Open Source and More
+3 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Every few months, I get the fun job of announcing what’s new in TokuDB®, but this time is special. With Version 7, TokuDB for MySQL and MariaDB is going open source.

The free Community Edition is fully functional and fully performant. It has all the compression you’ve come to expect from TokuDB. It has hot schema changes: no-down-time column insertion, deletion, renaming, etc., as well as index creation. It has clustering secondary keys. We are also announcing an Enterprise Edition (coming soon) with additional benefits, such as a support package and advanced backup and recovery tools.

Making TokuDB open source is a natural next step for Tokutek’s involvement in the MySQL community. So far, Tokutek has been involved in the community in many ways:

    This is my 10th year attending and speaking at the MySQL Users Conference (as the Percona Live MySQL Conference and Expo was originally called back in 2003), and for me it does not get tiring. So what is there in this conference for me as an attendee, speaker and businessman?

    Learning. First and foremost the conference is still a great learning venue for me. I learn about new technologies in the MySQL space as well as how these technologies can be applied in practice. I learn what works and what does not. I learn from the sessions, expo hall exhibitors and hallway
