We are very honoured to have been asked to give a “state of the MySQL” keynote presentation at the Percona Live MySQL Conference and Expo in April.
While this will not be in any way an official “state of the dolphin” presentation, I think it is fitting given the expansion of the MySQL ecosystem that the Percona Live event includes an independent perspective on the state of MySQL. The full title of the presentation – MySQL, YourSQL, NoSQL, NewSQL – the state of the MySQL ecosystem – reflects that.
We want to present an independent perspective on the health of the MySQL ecosystem in 2013, drawing on our research and analysis, as well as the views[Read more...]

This is just a small bug fix release of the plugin. It was actually quietly released for a while now of if you have downloaded the plugin recently, you have the latest version. To be sure — check the version in the Console or you will see it in the file name.
There are two bugs fixed:
1. Deployment on an OMS hosted on Solaris didn’t work (and suspect could be the same for Agents on Solaris).
2. Changing thresholds on the metrics caused an error “Modification of Target Monitoring Settings has Failed”. Also applying monitoring template was failing for the same reason.
If you did’t know that you can setup threshold and customized the thresholds that are set out of the box with the plugin then you are not using full capabilities of the Enterprise Manager. You can do that in the MySQL target menu — Monitoring -> Metric
