MySQL distro meeting in Brussels
+1 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Last month I spent two days in Belgium, after I got invited to the MySQL distro meeting. It was a non-public meeting with some people from Sun Microsystems and MySQL maintainers from different Linux distributions. It took place directly after FOSDEM (which I unfortunately could not attend due to personal reasons) at the Sun Microsystems Belgium office in Brussels. It was great to meet with Mathias Gug from the Ubuntu Server team in person. He had some really good …

When backups fail: A mysql binlog race condition
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Today I ran into my first MySQL binlog race condition: The initial problem was quite simple: A typical MySQL master->slave setup with heavy load on the master and nearly no load on the slave, which only serves as a hot fallback and job machine, showed differences on the same table on both machines. The differences showed up from time to time: entries that have been deleted from the master were still on the slave.

After several investigations I started examining the MySQL binlog from the master – a file containing all queries that will …

Recently in MariaDB #1
+5 Vote Up -3Vote Down

The aims of this kind of blog post is simple – I want to help keep the masses informed as to what’s happening with MariaDB, as a whole. There is a community growing, and MariaDB is a community project, not necessarily a Monty Program Ab baby (and we’re clear on this distinction: think of it like Canonical/Ubuntu). So, think of it as such that I’m sharing the good news, and summarising what’s been happening, to save you time.

MariaDB added to the Debian/Ubuntu wishlists
One of MariaDB’s goals is that it should be easily available for …

How To Back Up MySQL Databases With mylvmbackup On Debian Lenny

mylvmbackup is a Perl script for quickly creating MySQL backups. It uses LVM's snapshot feature to do so. To perform a backup, mylvmbackup obtains a read lock on all tables and flushes all server caches to disk, creates a snapshot of the volume containing the MySQL data directory, and unlocks the tables again. This article shows how to use it on a Debian Lenny server.

Fixing a MariaDB package bug
+4 Vote Up -0Vote Down

One of the things that I am really happy about in MariaDB is that we have our releases available as apt (and yum for Centos) repositories. This is largely thanks to being able to build this on the OurDelta package build infrastructure (which again builds on things like the Debian packaging scripts for MySQL).

Something like the Debian apt-get package system (which is also used by Ubuntu) is one of the major innovations in the Free Software world in my opinion. Debian has spent many years refining this system to where it is today. Want to run the mysql client, but it isn't installed? Just try to run it …
