Why I Love Open Source
+3 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Anders Karlsson wrote about Some myths on Open Source, the way I see it a few days ago.  Anders' article is mostly focused on exploding the idea that open source magically creates high quality code.  It is sad to say you do not have to look very far to see how true this is.

While I largely agree with Anders' points, there is far more that could be said on this subject, especially on the benefits of open source. I love working on open source software. Here are three reasons that are especially important to me.

Kauli – Open Source Grown Up

Kuali is proof that the Open Source model works for more than nerds and geeks. Kuali is a movement where colleges and universities pool resources to develop the software they need to run their institutions. The parties involved provide money and bodies to work on the various projects. And if an school needs a feature in a hurry, they provide money or bodies to get the work done. This is a highly collaborative effort spans the globe.

Many of these same schools found themselves locked into very expensive software that had to be extensively tailored to …

OQGraph and TokuDB
+1 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Today, while at Oracle's MySQL Connect conference in San Francisco, I had the opportunity to talk to Gerardo Narvaja and that inspired me to try using OQGraphv3 and TokuDB. Of course, the first challenge is to compile it on my MacBook which has MacOS Lion 10.7. I installed the Apple's latest XCode Command Line tools and eventually compiled a MariaDB which had both TokuDB and OQGraph available

Introducing audit_login: simple MySQL login logfile based auditing

It seems that audit plugins are all the rage lately... We've developed out simple plugin a month ago as part of our database securing efforts; by auditing any login or login attempt we could either intercept or later investigate suspicious logins.

+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

This is the first in a series of posts describing my impressions of converting a large OLAP server to TokuDB. There's a lot to tell, and the experiment is not yet complete, so this is an ongoing blogging. In this post I will describe the case at hand and out initial reasons for looking at TokuDB.

Disclosure: I have no personal interests and no company interests; we did get friendly, useful and free advice from Tokutek engineers. TokuDB is open source and free to use, though commercial license is also available.
