Welcome to the world, MySQL Installer for Windows!
Employee +5 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Well, our baby is born!  Some time ago we analyzed the feedback from users and customers and determined that far too many of our server installs were failing.  We have the best open-source database on the planet but no one can see that if we can’t get it properly installed.  Clearly something had to be done.

So, the new MySQL Installer is born.  It’s a Windows application that comes delivered in a bundle along with a version of the database server, applications like Workbench, connectors, samples, and documentation.  It includes some customized configuration screens that help with setting up the proper configuration …

Generating dimension data for dates
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Most analytical and BI databases have date dimension table(s). One frequently needs to generate and populate such data. I present a solution below for such data generation, written in Python. Please use different database drivers/modules to connect to your specific database server (MySQL, SQL Server, Oracle, etc.) for data population.

Notes:

1. It takes 2 parameters, start date and end date, in YYYYMMDD format, inclusive. Extensive error checking is built in, but let me know if you have comments/suggestions;

+0 Vote Up -1Vote Down

Given that we continue to see software patent-based attacks on Android, as well as swirling FUD around coverage of the attacks and never ending suits and settlements and courtroom developments, it …

RAID 10 your EBS data
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

When I spoke at Percona Live (video here) on running an E-commerce database in Amazon EC2, I briefly talked about using RAID 10 for additional performance and fault tolerance when using EBS volumes. At first, this seems counter intuitive. Amazon has a robust infrastructure, EBS volumes run on RAIDed hardware, and are mirrored in multiple availability zones. So, why bother? Today, I was reminded of just how important it is. Please note that all my performance statistics are based on direct …

I’ve done some benchmark testing of 2 Python modules for MySQL data retrieval: MySQLdb and pyhs. MySQLdb uses MySQL’s client libraries, whereas pyhs uses HandlerSocket that bypasses MySQL’s client layer and interfaces Innodb storage engine’s files directly. In my testing, HandlerSocket results in 82% improvement over mysql client …
