Database Automation - Private DBaaS for MySQL, MariaDB and MongoDB with ClusterControl
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

October 9, 2014 By Severalnines

Installing, configuring, deploying databases and performing repetitive administrative tasks are all part of a DBA’s or sysadmin’s job. This can get pretty repetitive and overwhelming if you are part of a centralized IT team, running multiple databases for your organization’s different departments, or a managed hosting provider responsible for setting up and operating databases for external clients. One way to get out of this ‘manual, repetitive task’ business is through a Database as a Service (DBaaS).

DBaaS is a way of delivering database functionality as a …

MariaDB 10.0 on POWER
+1 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Good news for those wanting to run MariaDB on POWER systems, the latest 10.0 bzr tree (as of a couple of weeks ago) builds and runs well!

I recently pulled the latest MariaDB 10.0 from BZR and built it on a POWER8 system in the lab to run some quick tests. The MariaDB team has done some work on getting MariaDB to run on POWER recently, a bunch of which is based off my work on MySQL on POWER.

There’s obviously still some work in progress going on, but my initial results show performance within around 10% of MySQL, so with a bit of work we will hopefully see MariaDB reach performance parity.

One interesting find was the code to …

MySQL 5.7.5 Overview and Highlights
+2 Vote Up -0Vote Down

MySQL 5.7.5 was recently released (it is the latest MySQL 5.7, and is the “m15″ or “Milestone 15″ release), and is available for download here and here.

As for the fixes/changes, there are quite a few (the official release was split into 3 separate emails), which is expected in such an early milestone release.

The main highlights for me were (though the enhancements, and potentially impactful changes, are definitely not limited to this list):

Exorcising the CAP Demon
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Computer science is like an enormous tool box you can rummage through whenever you have a problem to solve. Most of the tools are sturdy and practical, like algorithms for B-trees. Some are also elegant, like consistent hashing in Dynamo. Finally there are some tools that you never quite figure out even after years of reflection. That piece of steel you are looking at could be Excalibur. Or it could be a rusty knife.

The CAP theorem falls into the last category, at least for me.  It was a major topic in the blogosphere a few years ago and Google Trends shows …

MySQL 5.6.21 Overview and Highlights
+1 Vote Up -0Vote Down

MySQL 5.6.21 was recently released (it is the latest MySQL 5.6, is GA), and is available for download here.

For this release, there was 1 “InnoDB Notes” and 1 “Functionality Added or Changed” bug fix (and 0 “Security Fix”), so not much there, but of course they should be noted:

  1. InnoDB Note: The –skip-innodb option is now deprecated and its use results in a warning. It will be removed in a future MySQL release. This also applies to its synonyms (–innodb=OFF, –disable-innodb, and so forth).

Replication from Oracle to MariaDB the simple way - Part 4
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Now it's time to get serious about replicating to MariaDB from Oracle, and we are real close now, right? What I needed was a means of keeping track of what happens in a transaction, such as a LOG table of some kind, and then an idea of applying this log to MariaDB when there is a COMMIT in Oracle. And thing is, these two don't have to be related. So I can have a table which I write to and also have a Materialized View that is refreshed on COMMIT on, and I need a log table or something. And when the Materialized View is refreshed, as there is a COMMIT, then the log can be applied. From a schematic point-of-view, it looks something like this: …

Replication from Oracle to MariaDB the simple way - Part 3
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

In this third installment in this series, I'll explain why the smart solution I described in the previous post actually wasn't that good, and then I go on to explain how to fix it, and why that fix wasn't such a smart thing after all. So, this was the design we ended with last time:
We have Oracle replicating to a Materialized View, this to ensure that we can run triggers when the is a commit, …

Replication from Oracle to MariaDB the simple way - Part 2
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

The theme for this series of posts is, and indicated in the previous post, "Try and try, again", and there will be more of this now when I start to make this work by playing with Oracle, with PL/SQL and with the restrictions of Oracle Express (which is the version I have available).

So, what we have right now is a way of "sending" SQL statements from Oracle to MariaDB, the question is when and how to send them from Oracle. The idea for this was then to use triggers on the Oracle tables to send the data to …

Replication from Oracle to MariaDB the simple way - Part 1
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Yes, there is a simple way to do this. Although it might not be so simple unless you know how to do it, so let me show you how this can be done. It's actually pretty cool. But I'll do this over a number of blog posts, and this is just an introductory blog, covering some of the core concepts and components.

But getting this to work wasn't easy, I had to try several things before I got it right, and it's not really obvious how you make it work at first, so this is a story along the lines of "If at first you don't succeed mr Kidd" "Try and try again, mr Wint" from my favorite villains in the Bond movie "Diamonds are …
