OurSQL, the MySQL Database Community Podcast, lists events, conferences and training that are relevant to MySQLers around the world. Gerry and Sheeri get the information for events/conferences/training from Planet MySQL and Oracle, SkySQL and Percona websites. Often, webinars are posted to Planet MySQL a week or 2 before they happen, which is not enough lead time for the podcast. We usually record on Tuesdays and publish on Fridays, with the understanding that not everyone listens to the podcast on Friday. So on the podcast, we talk about events that are at least 1 week from publication date. For example, we are recording today (Tue 20 Nov) for a podcast that will be published Friday (23 Nov). We will talk about events, conferences and training that will happen Sunday, December 2nd or later.
There’s a lot happening in the world of MySQL and it’s really vital to be up-to-date with the latest advancements in this field to stay ahead of the game.

There are loads of blogs talking about MySQL, and even more for databases in general, so which of these really matter and are worth your time and attention?
We’ve handpicked the best MySQL community/ experts blogs and grouped them into various categories. You can also add these great blogs to your RSS reader to get all industry news, tips that[Read more...]
While monitoring MySQL servers, managing their configuration becomes important. There could be a need of comparing configuration of one or more MySQL or a server’s running configuration with that of its own My.cnf. Let me explain this a little more.
If you are in a situation where a server ‘A’ is performing better than a server ‘B’ while both have the same resources and environment, then the first thing you might want to do is compare their configuration. Then, make the configuration changes in server ‘B’ looking into ‘A’. There by fine tuning ‘B’ to level up to ‘A’. Comparing MySQL configurations is the key here.
When you change a MySQL[Read more...]

Security is always a major concern in an application. But when an application attempts data communication over a network, it becomes even tougher ordeal to keep the connection secure. In this post we will discuss about Secure Shell (SSH) to add an extra security edge to your application when it communicates over a network.
SSH is an encrypted network protocol generally used for remote shell service, secure data communication, command execution etc. In SSH tunneling, a payload protocol is wrapped around the SSH protocol (the delivery protocol) and sent over the network.
Monitoring MySQL servers is no rocket science provided you know what to monitor. MySQL gives a comprehensive list of variables to check your server’s health and performance. Let me walk you through the crucial variables you should be monitoring. Lets assume that you have one or more MySQL servers, which have been setup and running fine. Here are the top 10 things to monitor on your MySQL.
Yes, this is the first thing you should be looking at! It would not make sense to monitor your MySQL if its not even available. MySQL downtime is simply not acceptable in production. At the same time ensuring zero[Read more...]
One of our users has published a “Quick Manual to SQLyog” to his blog.
Sometimes you do better writing about a subject as an ‘outsider’ than as an ‘insider’. As an ‘insider’ you easily take things for granted that are actually not obvious for everyone. This is a good example of this – and the writing is excellent. Enjoy!Tweet
