Oracle dump utility version 1.1

Today I released version 1.1 of myoradump for download from sourceforge. If you don't know what myoradump is, this is a utility for exporting data from an Oracle database in some relevant text format so that it can be imported to some other database.

The main thing in version 1.1 is that I have added a whole bunch of new output formats, so make it even easier to get your data out of expensive Oracle and into something more effective. The new formats supported are:

  • MySQL - The format of this is a bunch of INSERT statements that you get when you use mysqldump for example and is useful for import into MariaDB (and MySQL). INSERT arrays are supported as a bunch of more options.
  • JSON - This format is rather obvious, the output is a file consisting of one JSON object per row. To support binary …

The MySQL query cache: Worst enemy or best friend?

During the last couple of months I have been involved in an unusually high amount of performance audits for e-commerce applications running with Magento. And although the systems were quite different, they also had one thing in common: the MySQL query cache was very useful. That was counter-intuitive for me as I’ve always expected the query cache to be such a bottleneck that response time is better when the query cache is turned off no matter what. That lead me to run a few experiments to better understand when the query cache can be helpful.

Some context

The query cache is well known for its contentions: a global mutex has to be acquired for any read or write operation, which means that any access is serialized. This was not an issue 15 years ago, but with today’s multi-core servers, such serialization is the best way to kill performance.

However from a performance …

Multi-source replication in MySQL 5.7 vs Tungsten Replicator

MySQL 5.7 comes with a new set of features and multi-source replication is one of them. In few words this means that one slave can replicate from different masters simultaneously.

During the last couple of months I’ve been playing a lot with this trying to analyze its potential in a real case that I’ve been facing while working with a customer.

This was motivated because my customer is already using multi-sourced slaves with Tungsten Replicator and I wanted to do a side-by-side comparison between Tungsten Replicator and Multi-source Replication in MySQL 5.7

Consider the following scenario:


DB1 is our main master attending mostly writes from several applications, it also needs to serve read …

Log Buffer #431: A Carnival of the Vanities for DBAs

This Log buffer edition covers Oracle, SQL Server and MySQL blog posts about new features, tips, tricks and best practices.

Oracle:

  • Traditionally, assigning specific processes to a certain set of CPUs has been done by using processor sets (and resource pools). This is quite useful, but it requires the hard partitioning of processors in the system. That means, we can’t restrict process A to run on CPUs 1,2,3 and process B to run on CPUs 3,4,5, because these partitions overlap.
  • Parallel_Degree_Limit, Parallel_Max_Degree, Maximum DOP? Confused?
  • JDeveloper 12c – …
