MySQL RPMS and the new yum repository
+1 Vote Up -0Vote Down

I was really pleased to see the announcement by Oracle MySQL yum repositories that they have now produced a yum repository from where the MySQL RPMs they provide can be downloaded. This makes keeping up to date much easier. Many companies setup internal yum repositories with the software they need as then updating servers is much easier and can be done with a simple command. For many people at home that means you set this up once and don’t need to check for updates and do manual downloads, but can do a quick yum update xxxx and you get the latest …

Updating MySQL using official repositories
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

The announcement of the MySQL Yum repositories was a long overdue request on my wish list. While it was possible to find MySQL at http://public-yum.oracle.com/ it was not the GA version MySQL 5.6. (As I write this post, I check and find that indeed it now appears this may be possible http://public-yum.oracle.com/repo/OracleLinux/OL6/MySQL56/).

I have previously installed MySQL 5.6.13 via rpms …

MySQL performance schema threads
+3 Vote Up -0Vote Down

A trap for those new to the MySQL Performance Schema is the expectation that thread_id in tables such as events_statements_current matches the id you find in the MySQL processlist. This is NOT TRUE.

If we look at the INFORMATION_SCHEMA.PROCESSLIST table we will find information like:

mysql> select id,db,command,state from information_schema.processlist order by id;
-----------+--------------------+---------+------------------------------------------------------------------+
| id        | db                 | command | state …

What causes LOST_EVENTS error in the MySQL binary log?
+2 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Using MySQL 5.6.13 under CentOS 6.4, I had a replication failure on one master/slave topology because the master binary log had the following entry that was intentionally written by the MySQL server.

$ mysqlbinlog --start-position=244670849 mysql-bin.000029
...
# at 244670849
#131028 19:31:38 server id 39  end_log_pos 244670906 CRC32 0xc5d084ec
# Incident: LOST_EVENTS
RELOAD DATABASE; # Shall generate syntax error
# at 244670906

The question is why? I do not know the answer. Searching online indicates this can occur in a MySQL Cluster environment, and can occur around the use of GRANT statements. Neither of these …

MySQL Workbench “Clean up SQL” Feature
+1 Vote Up -0Vote Down

I was playing around with MySQL Workbench earlier in the week, and ran across the “clean up SQL” feature, which I thought was neat. Here’s a picture-based demonstration – you can click on the pictures to make them bigger, so they are more readable.

Here is a typical complex query that looks pretty good formatted in the results from a performance schema query:

Simply click the “broom” icon and watch as your SQL is cleaned up, with one field in the SELECT per line and the JOINs indented and formatted prettily:

Simple Settings for a Saner MySQL – Character Sets
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Character sets are like the force: they surround us and penetrate us, binding all our digital world together. A character set is how we convert the 1’s and 0’s that the computer understands into human-readable characters like ABC. In one of the first character sets, ASCII, the number 97 is translated to “a” and 63 is the question mark (?).


“Are there other languages besides English?”
“Don’t think so, Bob.”

English-Only Please

The trouble with ASCII is that it was created back in the ‘60s by a bunch of Americans and they …

Simple Settings for a Saner MySQL – Part I
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

One day, after taking a job using MySQL, I was writing a query quietly at my desk. It was around quittin’ time, and I was whipping up a new report on the monthly sales figures that the CEO needed for his board meeting in the morning. I, in my ignorance, wrote a nice query with a simple little sum() function. What I did not realize is this caused all my rows to sum up to one row when it really should’ve show several rows. This made my report completely inaccurate. Blindly trusting me as I had blindly trusted MySQL, the CEO presented my report to the board who decided that the company was …
