Welcome, MySQL commercial extensions
+16 Vote Up -6Vote Down

I saw yesterday that MySQL has finally done the right thing, and announced new commercial extensions.
What this means is that paying customers receive something more than users who get the community edition for free.
Believe it or not, when I was working in the community team at MySQL, I was already an advocate of this solution. You may see a contradiction, but there isn't. I would like to explain how this works.

An open source product needs to be developed. And the developers need to get paid. Ergo, the company needs to …

Announcing common_schema: common views & routines for MySQL
+1 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Today I have released common_schema, a utility schema for MySQL which includes many views and functions, and is aimed to be installed on any MySQL server.

What does it do?

There are views answering for all sorts of useful information: stuff related to schema analysis, data dimensions, monitoring, processes & transactions, security, internals... There are basic functions answering for common needs.

Some of the views/routines simply formalize those queries we tend to write over and over again. Others take the place of external tools, …

Quickly testing MySQL builds without “make install”
Employee +3 Vote Up -0Vote Down

There is a lot happening in mysql-trunk nowadays, and it’s a pain to have to keep pulling from the tree, building, installing and configuring to some test location etc. (unless you have that scripted, which I used to in the past).

Marc Alff showed me a tip a while ago to not have to do the install/config stage, and I thought it was worth sharing – it’s how I keep up to date …

A hidden options file trick
+7 Vote Up -0Vote Down

I was listening today to the OurSQL Episode 36: It's Not Our (De)fault! Part 1. As usual, Sheeri and Sarah are very informational and entertaining while explaining the innards of MySQL and their best practices.
Being a DBA oriented show, there was an omission in this podcast. There was no mention of custom groups that you can have for your my.cnf. This is mostly useful for developers. If your application requires some specific settings, instead of using a separated configuration file, you can use a different group, and then …

A last look at 2010... and what's in sight?
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

For a few years, I've tried to recap here some events I've found notable over the past year and offering some guesses on what might be ahead of us. I'm somewhat late on these things this year, due to being busy with other stuff, but I didn't want to break the tradition, no matter how silly my wrong guesses might seem later. And again, others have covered generals, so I'll try to focus on specifics, in particular as they relate to what I do. For a look at what we achieved for Habbo, see my recap post on the Sulake blog.
