Tungsten Replicator 2.0.4 released: usability and power
+7 Vote Up -1Vote Down
It has been a bumpy ride, with dozens of issues opened and resolved, but we finally feel that Tungsten Replicator 2.0.4 is ready for prime time.There have been quite a lot of changes. Most notably, the replicator is much faster, especially when it comes to parallel replication, and it is much easier to install, thanks to its new integrated installer, which can validate all the requirements to install the replicator, and suggest remedies when the requirements aren't met. This new installer is so good, in fact, that calling it installer is an insult. It is a legitimate cluster builder, able to install a full fledged  [Read more...]
Usability improvements in Tungsten Replicator 2.0.4
+3 Vote Up -0Vote Down
If you love a software product, you should try to improve it, and not be afraid of criticizing it. This principle has guided me with MySQL (where I have submitted many usability bugs, and discussed interface with developers for years), and it proves true for Tungsten Replicator as well. When I started working at Continuent, while I was impressed by the technology, I found the installation procedure and the product logs quite discouraging. I would almost say disturbing. Fortunately, my colleagues have agreed on my usability focus, and we can enjoy some tangible improvements. I have already mentioned the new installation procedure, which requires just one command to install a full master/slave cluster. I would like to show how you can  [Read more...]
Getting started with Tungsten Replicator and Tungsten Sandbox
+2 Vote Up -0Vote Down
We have been busy, at Continuent. In addition to our usual work with high performance replication, we have addressed usability issues, since we know that a hard-to-use problem, no matter how powerful, has low adoption. Thus, is with some personal satisfaction that I can announce the release of Tungsten Replicator 2.0.3, which comes with several huge improvements in matter of user friendliness. The new installation procedure is so user friendly, in fact, that I was able to build a sophisticated tungsten-sandbox with a  [Read more...]
Guide to MySQL installation files
+1 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Even for DBAs already familiar with MySQL, the choice of installation methods and the variety of install/package files is overwhelming and confusing.

I’ll make a (very!) brief introduction to the various installation options, concentrating on the Linux operating system, and provide with a simple shopping list.

For illustration, I’ll refer to the MySQL 5.1.52 community edition, the latest at the time of this writing. Downloads are available at http://dev.mysql.com/downloads/mysql/5.1.html.

I will then refer to alternate distributions.

A note for Windows users

You are lucky: your choice is very clear. Download the Windows MSI package. Choose 32 or 64 bit architecture according to your OS. If you know about the other ways to

Drupal 7 test drive appliance updated to 7.0-beta2, now with GUI option
Employee +2 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Over the weekend I updated my Drupal 7 test appliance in SUSE Studio to the Drupal 7.0-beta2 release, which was released on Oct. 23rd. I also added phpMyAdmin upon a user request, to provide a web-based method to work with the MySQL instance, if needed.

In addition to the lightweight "headless" appliance (which can only be accessed and configured via a remote network connection), I've now also created a

Testing Drupal 7 on a virtual appliance with MySQL 5.1 and the InnoDB plugin
Employee +4 Vote Up -0Vote Down

The Drupal community just recently released another alpha test release of their upcoming Drupal 7 version, to shake out the remaining bugs and to encourage more users to test it.

If you would like to give it a try, but you don't have a free server handy, how about using a virtual machine instead? Using the fabolous SuSE Studio, I've created an appliance based on openSUSE 11.3, Drupal 7.0-alpha7 and MySQL 5.1 with the

The case against using rpm packaging for MySQL
+3 Vote Up -7Vote Down

In some environments using a distro package management system may* provide benefits including handling dependencies and providing a simpler approach when there are no dedicated DBA or SA resources.

However, the incorrect use can result in pain and in this instance production downtime. Even with dedicated resources at an unnamed premium managed hosting provider, the simple mistake of assumption resulted in over 30 minutes of unplanned downtime during peak time.

One of the disadvantages of using a system such as rpm is the lack of control in managing the starting and stopping of your MySQL instance, and the second is unanticipated package dependency upgrades.

So what happened with this client. When attempting to use the MySQL client on the production server, I got the following error.
