MySQL Workbench 5.2.36: What’s New

MySQL Workbench 5.2.36 is now out and brings a lot of improvements across the board, with special focus on the Query Editor. We’ll cover some of that here:

Redesigned Query Editor

    • The log of executed commands and server responses is now always visible while resultset grids and the query editor can be resized according to your needs. Resultsets are also grouped in the same tab as the query editor that generated them.
    • SELECT queries are now analyzed as in the old MySQL Query Browser tool and, if possible, its resultset can be edited in the grid. If the resultset cannot be edited, you can place the mouse over the ReadOnly label and view the reason.
  • Improved snippets manager and editor, allows having snippets list always at hand, while editing can be done without disrupting work on the main query area.

Join us at the OTN Sys Admin Day for Oracle Linux and Solaris on Sep. 22nd, Seattle (WA)

Last week we concluded our first Oracle Technology Network Sys Admin Day in Sacramento (CA). Well, it was actually the second Sys Admin Day, but the first one that had two parallel tracks of sessions about both Oracle Linux and Oracle Solaris.

I helped preparing for the event by creating the Linux lab handbook as well as the VirtualBox appliance of Oracle Linux 6.1 that was used for the exercises. Unfortunately I could not be there in person, but it would have been pointless for me to go on an intercontinental flight just for one day.

From the feedback we've received so far, the attendees really enjoyed the event and were positively surprised about the depth and quality of the practical hands-on lab sessions.

If you've missed the first one and happen to live …

MySQL Workbench, Windows XP and SSH public key auth.

It happens that sometimes you need to access a remote box which supports ssh key authentication. Recently I was trying to reproduce a bug related to SSH public key authentication, so here I would like to share some of my experience.

There will be no explanation of the public key authentication itself here, rather the actual setup and steps to have a public key auth for Windows(client) -> Linux(server) working. Why Windows you would ask? Because interactions for Linux->Linux and for Mac OS X -> Linux simply work using the Unix way, while for Windows you may need some extra actions to do.

 

Setup

What I had at endpoints:

  • Linux –

Ubuntu 11.04, sshd is set up to deny password auth.
Windows – well, it is an XP SP3 i386 box. MySQL Workbench 5.2.34+ is installed

First of all I created an encrypted pair of RSA keys, …

MySQL Workbench Utilities

One of the many new things that is being introduced this week are some great new external tools for managing MySQL servers. These are available in MySQL Workbench under the name MySQL Workbench Utilities.

Some of the key features of MySQL Workbench Utilities are:

  • Plugin for MySQL Workbench 5.2.31
  • Available under the GPLv2 license
  • Written in Python
  • Easily to extend using the supplied library



How Does It Work?

Workbench and MySQL server at non-standard location in Linux.

Recently I had to test MySQL Workbench against fresh version of the server. Naturally, the default mysql-server was already installed from repository of my Linux distro. So I installed the latest server version into my /opt/server directory. And then I had several points to resolve, for example, how to start detached server process from Workbench Adminstrator; how to detect if the server is running or not, given that there are many of them running; how to stop the server.

Now I will show several workarounds to perform tasks listed in the previous paragraph. Below are the commands I put into Server Instance Editor, there are corresponding text entries labeled: ‘Start MySQL’, ‘Stop MySQL’, ‘Check MySQL Status’:

- Staring server – (nohup /opt/server/5.5.9/bin/mysql_safe –defaults-file=/opt/server/5.5.9/my.cnf & disown %1)
Note! the command above must be used including parentheses
- …

Speaking at the O'Reilly MySQL Conference & Expo: "A look into a MySQL DBA's toolchest"


I'm happy to announce that my talk "Making MySQL administration a breeze - a look into a MySQL DBA's toolchest" has been accepted for this year's edition of the MySQL Conference & Expo in Santa Clara, which will take place on April 12-15, 2010. The session is currently scheduled for Wednesday 14th, 10:50 in Ballroom E.

My plan is to provide an overview over the most popular utilities and applications that a MySQL DBA should be aware of to make his life easier. The focus will be on Linux/Unix applications available under opensource licenses that ease tasks related to user administration, setting up and administering replication setups, performing backups and security audits.

Of course I will cover the usual …
