Selena and I gave a talk on the various issues of running databases “in the cloud” at the recent in Ballarat. Video is up, embedded below:

Making rpm builds a first class citizen: How?
+0 Vote Up -1Vote Down

In my previous post I explained why I believe the production of RPM and DEB packages should be more integrated with the rest of your development process. Now it's time to look into how you can put the RPM build scripts inside your main source code repository, and in particular how I did that to produce RPM packages for Drizzle.

Making rpm builds a first class citizen: Why?
+0 Vote Up -2Vote Down

Last weekend I released rpm files for the latest Drizzle Fremont beta (announcement). As part of that work I've also integrated the spec file and other files used by the rpmbuild into the main Drizzle bzr repository (but not yet merged into trunk). In this post I want to explain why I think this is a good thing, and in a follow up post I'll go into what I needed to do to make it work.

(And speaking of stuff you can download, …

A Change in Direction
+4 Vote Up -1Vote Down

In 2008 my career took a sudden unexpected turn into the world of MySQL when I was offered a job at Sun.  Since then MySQL and it's forks have been a big part of my life.  The whole community (I mean the people, not the companies) around MySQL are part of what really drove me.

Unfortunately to me something has changed.  I am not exactly sure what it is, but I am sure it is not just me because others have expressed it in conversation too.  I wasn't enjoying things as much as I used to and for several reasons, some related to this, I have been quite ill.

Recently I was approached by …

dbqp being renamed
+2 Vote Up -1Vote Down

One of the best things that can happen to a piece of software is for people to actually use it.

I’ve been fortunate enough to have received feedback on the tool from several members of both the Percona and Drizzle teams.  The most common and strongly emphasized comments were in regards to what a terrible, terrible name dbqp really is in terms of saying, seeing, and typing it ; )

As that isn’t something that can be disputed (it’s really annoying to use in conversations *and* to type several dozen …

State of the MySQL forks: via a particular example of authentication plugins
+3 Vote Up -0Vote Down

A year ago I posted a blog on The state of MySQL forks: co-operating without co-operating. (Also Giuseppe wrote about the topic at that time, and Peter Zaitsev covers it in his conference keynotes.) So I've been wondering if it would be good to write an update on the topic now, and in that case what to write.

"The" MySQL Conference 2012 Call for Papers
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

There's now 2 weeks left of the Call for Papers for Percona Live MySQL Conference and Expo (Santa Clara, CA). This weekend I've been finalizing my abstracts for submission and I trust many of you are doing the same. (If nothing else, do it for the free entrance! Or because you're passionate about MySQL, yeah, that's what I meant...)

This is the main annual MySQL event, so I thought it is worth the bandwidth to use these two weeks for some discussion and brainstorming. We are the MySQL community, it's up to us to make this a great conference now! This year I'm on the …

Databases and documentation
+1 Vote Up -0Vote Down

The MySQL documentation impresses me. I can’t recall a time when I didn’t find what I was looking for or that its details were lacking. Documenting a database server is difficult; the amount of information to organize and communicate clearly is staggering. I tasted that challenge when I helped update the Drizzle documentation, which was recently updated online.

I think Drizzle will become be a serious alternative or compliment to MySQL. Imho, Drizzle was until now held back by its documentation, or lack thereof, which created an insurmountable …

dbqp and Xtrabackup testing
+2 Vote Up -1Vote Down

So I’m back from the Percona dev team’s recent meeting.  While there, we spent a fair bit of time discussing Xtrabackup development.  One of our challenges is that as we add richer features to the tool, we need equivalent testing capabilities.  However, it seems a constant in the MySQL world that available QA tools often leave something to be desired.  The randgen is a literal wonder-tool for database testing, but it is also occasionally frustrating / doesn’t scratch every testing …
