How MySQL tests server binaries before a release
Employee +0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

What happens when the binary files of a fresh MySQL version is published on the web?

You may have noticed that the date on the release notes is not the same as the date the downloads are available. Sometimes there is a two weeks gap, sometimes more. Many people in the community have asked what is going on in the meantime.

The answer is a lot of hard work. The code is built for all the operating systems supported by MySQL, and tested in each …

Taxi rides and packed rooms at Athens Open Source Conference
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

I arrived in Athens shortly before midnight. An unusual sight. Most of the taxi drivers in the queue are female. My driver is a middle aged woman wearing a torn leather jacket and with no understanding of English beyond numbers. She said "yes. Liberian hotel", and she adds the name of a mysterious location that I don't understand. I show her the hotel name and address, written in both Latin and Greek alphabet. "Yes. Iberian hotel. I know where." "Not Iberian - I say patiently, pointing at the hotel name on the paper - Imperial.
She says yes, and off we go.
After a minute she fishes a cell phone from her jacket, and asks something. …

FOSDEM 2009 - Boosting performance with MySQL 5.1 partitions
Employee +0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

The MySQL Developers Room at FOSDEM was a success. There was a full room (about 80 seats, and many sitting on the floor) throughout the day. We started at 9am with a talk on PBXT, and ended at 17:00. My talk had a large audience and was very well received.

The enthusiasm was quite high also because of a stunt I did during the presentation. It was a creative way of explaining the difference between physical and logical partitioning. I will …

Q&A on MySQL 5.1
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Listening to Sheeri's presentation on MySQL 5.1, I saw that there are a few questions left unanswered. I am listing here some of the questions that I found interesting, plus a few from an early webinar on the same topic.

Q: does Partitioning physically split data?
A: No. Some engines (MyISAM, Archive) do a physical split, but this is not necessary, as you see if you apply partitioning to a InnoDB table. Partitioning is a logical split of data, for easy retrieval. It is completely transparent to the user. …

The approvals are coming. I will be speaking at the MySQL Users Conference 2009.
Using the event scheduler. The friendly behind-the-scenes helper. My co-speaker will be none other than Andrey Hristov, the designer and implementer of the Event scheduler, one of the main features of MySQL 5.1.
What's going on in MySQL land?
Employee +0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Enough of one-sided stories. Let's see a different angle of MySQL 5.1.

First, let me thank my colleague Chris Powers for taking a stand in defense of the management. But saying "everyone does so" is not a good explanation. The truth is much more complex and requires some narrative.

MySQL 5.1 didn't start on the right foot. The effort to produce its …

MySQL 5.1 for impatient Italians
Employee +0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

I have just started a blog in Italian. Although Italian is my mother tongue, most of my technical writing is in English. Since my tasks are more widespread than a single country, it was easier and simpler to write in English straight away.

After Sun acquisition, the MySQL presence in Italy is growing, and then it makes sense to employ my birth speaking abilities to spread the word in my country.

Today, thanks to a convoluted introduction, set in motion by …
