MySQL Global status difference using single query
+1 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Have just read MySQL Global status difference using MySQL procedures / functions, by Andres Karlsson. Have commented, but realized I did not provide with a direct answer. In the comment, I suggested checking out a solution based on views, found in common_schema. But the solution in common_schema is split into two views, due to …

Announcing common_schema: common views & routines for MySQL
+1 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Today I have released common_schema, a utility schema for MySQL which includes many views and functions, and is aimed to be installed on any MySQL server.

What does it do?

There are views answering for all sorts of useful information: stuff related to schema analysis, data dimensions, monitoring, processes & transactions, security, internals... There are basic functions answering for common needs.

Some of the views/routines simply formalize those queries we tend to write over and over again. Others take the place of external tools, …

Following up on MySQL security: inconsistencies, and on MySQL bug #61596, I was thinking it may take a long time till the non-existent ROUTINE_PRIVILEGES view is implemented. Here’s my own implementation of the view.

I’ve followed the somewhat strange conventions used in the *_PRIVILEGES tables in INFORMATION_SCHEMA, where the IS_GRANTABLE is a separate column, although in 2nd 1st normal form.

MySQL security: inconsistencies
+2 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Doing some work with MySQL security, I’ve noticed a few inconsistencies. They’re mostly not-too-terrible for daily work, except they get in my way right now.

The ALL PRIVILEGES inconsistency

The preferred way of assigning account privileges in MySQL is by way of using GRANT.

With GRANT, one assigns one or more privileges to an account, such as SELECT, UPDATE, ALTER, SUPER ,etc. Sometimes it makes sense for an account to have complete control over a domain. For …

Checking for AUTO_INCREMENT capacity with single query
+3 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Darn! This means oak-show-limits becomes redundant. Am I not supposed to speak about it on my coming presentation? Bad timing!

You have AUTO_INCREMENT columns. How far are you pushing the limits? Are you going to run out of AUTO_INCREMENT values soon? Perhaps you wonder whether you should ALTER from INT to BIGINT?

The answer is …

Drizzle metadata tables
+4 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Giuseppe has a great post about the Evolution of MySQL metadata, and I thought I’d have a look at what we have in Drizzle. It’s pretty easy to work out how many tables are in each schema, we just query the standard INFORMATION_SCHEMA.TABLES view:

drizzle> select table_schema,count(table_name)
    ->  from information_schema.tables
    -> group by table_schema;
| table_schema       | …

Evolution of MySQL metadata
+5 Vote Up -0Vote Down

I was looking at the latest MySQL versions, and I happened to notice that there has been a great increment in the number of metadata tables, both in the information_schema and performance_schema databases. So I made a simple count of both schemas in the various versions, and draw a graph. The advance looks straightforward.

version Information_schema performance_schema
5.0.92 17 0
5.1.54 28 0 …

Some hidden goods in MySQL 5.5
+11 Vote Up -0Vote Down
The announcement of MySQL 5.5 released as GA has outlined the improvements in this version, which indeed has enough good new features to excite most any user.
There are two additions, though, that were lost in the noise of the bigger features, and I would like to spend a few words for each of them.

The first addition is something that users of stored routines …

Monitoring MySQL SQL statements the way it SHOULD be done!
+8 Vote Up -2Vote Down

You may have read a previous post of mine, back in April this year, where I wrote about using the MySQL 5.5 Audit interface to SQL Statement monitoring. There was a bunch of comments and some ideas, but not much happened. Until now that is.

Hereby I release the first version of SQLStats, which is a much enhanced version of what I described in the previous post. This is a MySQL Plugin for MySQL 5.5 that allows you to monitor the most recently executed, and the most frequently executed statements using 2 …
