Busy weeks ahead!
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

I’m speaking at Percona Live, LinuxCon Europe, and linux.conf.au. And I just co-founded a new company.

I have a few busy weeks behind me, and even busier weeks ahead. If you’ve been wondering why recently I haven’t been updating this space too frequently, here’s why:

Yours truly and fellow ex-Linbiters Martin Loschwitz and Andreas Kurz have recently founded hastexo, an independent professional services organization focused on open-source high availability and disaster recovery. We are already offering both on-site and remote

OurSQL Episode 60: Charming Data
+2 Vote Up -0Vote Down

This week we talk with Giuseppe Maxia (pronouncing his name correctly!) about new features in Tungsten replicator, and go over a lot of news.

News:
There was a lot of news this week! There were three really big announcements at Oracle OpenWorld that relate to the MySQL community:

Oracle released a NoSQL database. http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/database/nosqldb/overview/index.html
It’s an ACID-compliant key-value data store, with a Java API for put, delete and get operations and includes replication. The data partitioning and distribution is automatic and based on a hash function.

Surge 2011 slides, recap
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

This year’s Surge conference was a great sophomore event to follow up last year’s inaugural conference. A lot of very smart people were there, and the hallway track was great.

I presented on three things: a lightning talk about causes of MySQL downtime; I chaired a panel on Big Data and the Cloud; and I showed how to derive scalability and performance metrics from TCP traffic. I’ve sent my slides to the Surge organizers, and I understand that they will be posting them as well as integrating them into the video of my session. In the meanwhile you can download my slides from Percona’s presentations page.

Speaking at Percona Live in London this October
+1 Vote Up -2Vote Down

Two of my proposals for Percona Live London on October 24-25 have been approved! Yes, I really had to propose them and get them approved like everyone else, although as I’m sure you can imagine, I had a good chance at being accepted :-) Not all of my talks were accepted, though.

I’ll be presenting a half-day tutorial on how to get great results when troubleshooting MySQL problems, and a conference session on how to use TCP packet headers to measure and analyze a surprising variety of aspects of MySQL performance and

Helan Går During OSCon 2011
+1 Vote Up -0Vote Down

During OSCon, I went to dinner with a bunch of MySQL folks - Henrik, Mats, Lars, and Rich (audio engineer for the OurSQL podcast). On the recommendation of some friends in Portland, we went to Le Bistro Montage. There, we raised our shot glasses (full of an oyster shooter) and sang Helan Går (well, I did not sing because I have not familiarized myself with the song -- I am not a big drinker!)

Following my departure from Linbit, I’m honored to be serving a number of speaking requests at conferences over the next few months.

The first I am pleased to announce is my commitment to speak at Percona Live in London this October. The conference venue is the America Square Conference Centre not too far from the iconic Tower of London. My 3-hour tutorial MySQL High Availability Sprint: Launch The Pacemaker! is scheduled for Monday, October 24th at 1pm.

Percona Live from a community insider’s perspective
+4 Vote Up -0Vote Down

I am writing this on my blog because I want to take the Percona hat off (partially) and wear my community hat a bit. My loyalty was to the MySQL community long before I was involved with Percona.

There are now three Percona Live events for which we have signed venue contracts and begun plans: London in October, Washington DC in January, and Santa Clara in April. I have insider knowledge of what’s going on with planning all three events, and I’m proud and happy that I have a community-member seat at the table.

The London event, which is October 24-25, will be a natural interpolation between the medium size of our very successful event earlier this year in New York, and the much larger Santa Clara event next

Speaking at Oracle Open World
+4 Vote Up -0Vote Down

I’ll be presenting at Oracle Open World on the causes of downtime in MySQL, and how to prevent it. This is a research-based session that presents an easy-to-digest post-mortem of hundreds of emergency issues filed by Percona customers. The real causes and types of downtime surprised me quite a bit, and the preventions run counter to a lot of conventional wisdom. I’ll just give a preview by saying that you should consider it a top priority to monitor how full your disks are! On the other hand, despite the fact that every monitoring tool in existence shows the binary log cache hit rate, not a single emergency in Percona history has ever been attributed to that.

The agenda at OOW is mind-bogglingly huge (see Dave

OurSQL Episode 53: MySQL 5.6 at OSCon Data
+3 Vote Up -1Vote Down

This week we speak with Calvin Sun, the Development Manager of the InnoDB Team, and has been working on InnoDB at MySQL and Oracle for 5 years. He mentions that not only is the InnoDB team hiring, but nobody has left the InnoDB team in several years, so the team is very stable.

We grabbed Calvin at OSCon Data, where Oracle announced the new features of MySQL 5.6 released on labs.mysql.com. Remember that the labs releases are for testing only and not supported in production use.

OurSQL Episode 52: Database Theory ABC

At this year's Open Source Bridge in Portland last month, Eric Redmond presented 'A Dozen Databases in 45 minutes'. It’s really about 20 minutes of theory and 25 minutes of the dozen databases, so for this first of a 2-part series, we present the theoretical side of things.

ACID - atomicity, consistency, isolation, durability
BASE- basically available, soft state, eventual consistency (there's also a good article by Lewis Cunningham that explains ACID vs. BASE in the context of cloud computing.

I’ve been accepted to present at the brand-new and very exciting Postgres Open 2011 about system scaling, TCP traffic, and mathematical modeling. I’m really looking forward to it — it will be my first PostgreSQL conference in a couple of years! See you there.

    I’m speaking at Surge 2011
    +1 Vote Up -0Vote Down

    I’ll be speaking at Surge again this year. This time, unlike last year’s talk, I’m tackling a very concrete topic: extracting scalability and performance metrics from TCP network traffic. It turns out that most things that communicate over TCP can be analyzed very elegantly just by capturing arrival and departure timestamps of packets, nothing more. I’ll show examples where different views on the same data pull out completely different insights about the application, even though we have no information about the application itself (okay, I actually know that it’s a MySQL database, and a lot about the actual database and workload, but I don’t need that in order to do what I’ll show you). It’s an amazingly powerful technique that I

    OSCON 2011
    Employee +0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

    This year I'll attend OSCON for the first time. I'll give two talks:

    • PHP and MySQL - Recent Developments
      PHP’s MySQL support recently received many changes under the hood. PHP 5.3 introduced mysqlnd – the MySQL native driver which is a replacement for libmysql deeply bound into PHP. In this presentation you will learn what the PHP and MySQL development teams were up to. After starting with an introduction of the PHP-stack, demystifying things like mysqli, mysqlnd or PDO, this presentation will show you how to build mysqlnd plugins as PHP C extension and hooking into mysqlnd from PHP userland. It will also discuss existing plugins like a client side query cache or a module for doing read-write-splitting, both working transparently, without changes to your application.

    Slides from DrupalDownUnder2011 on Tuning for Drupal
    +0 Vote Up -0Vote Down
    By popular request, here’s the PDF of the slides of this talk as presented in January 2011 in brisbane; it’s fairly self-explanatory. Note that it’s not really extensive “tuning”, it just fixes up a few things that are usually “wrong” in default installs, creating a more sane baseline. If you want to get to optimal correctness and more performance, other things do need to be done as well.

    This week we have feedback from Percona Live in NYC last Thursday. We talk with:

    Chander Kant of Zmanda, talking about the fact that Zmanda Backup Recovery now officially supports the Percona patched binary of MySQL.
    Barry Leung of CafeMom.com who talked about all the stuff he'd learned during the day, including "How to use MySQL and DTrace on Linux" and the new mk-tcp-model.

    Patrick Galbraith of BlueGecko talked about his talk, "The Building Blocks of Scaling: Drizzle/MySQL, Memcached, Sphinx, and Gearman", backups, FLUSH ENGINE ____ LOGS, and covering indexes.

    Things I wrote down during OSBC 2011
    +0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

    Two years ago I published a post entitled “things I wrote down during OSBC”. It tuned out to be surprisingly popular, so I decided to try the same formula again.

    Just as was the case two years ago these are presented chronologically. I wrote down a lot more than this, to be clear, but these were the most quote-worthy things. Also, as in 2009, some of them confirm things we already think about commercial open source (or in some cases data management), others were interesting ways of expressing old ideas:

    “The next generation of computing is being led by users, rather than vendors.”
    Jim Whitehurst

    “The value of open source has moved from commoditization to innovation.”

    At Open Database Camp in Sardinia last week, there was a hackfest to try to get replication working from MySQL to MongoDB. In only 2 hours and 45 minutes, a small group of hackers did it!

    Collaborate versus the MySQL UC
    +10 Vote Up -1Vote Down

    I split my time last week between the IOUG’s Collaborate conference in Orlando, Florida and O’Reilly’s MySQL Conference & Expo in California. The contrast was stark. For me as a MySQLer, Collaborate was a dud. On the other hand, the MySQL conference O’Reilly puts on is superb. It is vital to MySQL as a project and as a community, and it follows that it’s vital to MySQL’s business success. Oracle needs to participate to make it a success in the future.

    MySQL at Collaborate had good speakers and content, but no one there is interested in MySQL. MySQL is just from a different world — it is a curiosity at an Oracle conference. Also, as a speaker, sponsor, and attendee, Collaborate was a giant frustration. I can’t recommend it to anyone. (These comments do not reflect on the work that MySQL community members did in

    I’ll be speaking at IOUG’s Collaborate conference in Florida the week of April 10-14. My session is called MySQL Performance Basics. For those who know MySQL, this won’t be exciting, but if you’re new to it, I hope it will be a good orientation to what you should focus on and ignore.

    Sheeri Cabral posted a good round-up of the MySQL talks at Collaborate on the PalominoDB blog.

    No Hotsos? Go to the MySQL Conference instead.
    +3 Vote Up -3Vote Down

    I wish I could be at the Hotsos Symposium. I would keep my mouth very tightly closed and my ears wide open, and try to learn from people who are completely out of my league about performance analysis topics I won’t grok for another decade (if I’m lucky). But I just can’t cram in that much travel.

    If you’re like me, why don’t you go to the O’Reilly MySQL Conference instead? I’ll be trying my feeble best to bring some of the Oracle performance scientist’s mentality to this event, with presentations such as my Forecasting MySQL Performance and Scalability session.
