Mailing List FAIL
+1 Vote Up -0Vote Down

I've been thinking a bunch about email and mailing lists recently... about how to deal with them, how to follow the ones that are important but not get drowned in a sea of email noise. I have a non-tech email account which is where friends mail me personally and where I handle theatre-related stuff. I do not receive a stupid amount of email on this account, and I am almost always interested in reading the messages that arrive there. So on my email address, I've been considering unsubscribing from all mailing lists and setting both Launchpad and github to stop emailing me most things.

For Launchpad and github, most things I care about have status pages of some sort: lists of …

On Hot Backups and Restore using XtraBackup
+3 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Backups are an integral and very important part of any system. Backups allow you to recover your data and be up and running again, in the advent of problems such as system crashes, hardware failures or users deleting data by mistake. I had been evaluating backup solution for a while but to be honest I really wasn't satisfied with the solutions available until I came across XtraBackup and I am loving it since. In this post I intend on showing how to do backups and restores using XtraBackup.

Dealing with the Cambrian Explosion 2/2: Parameterizing the package name in DEB files
+1 Vote Up -1Vote Down

Yesterday I wrote down the approach used in the MepSQL build system to parameterize the TAR package name produced. Today I will follow up with how the same was done for building DEBs. The motivation is to create a system that can be used flexibly to create packages of any MySQL fork, with any brand name: mepsql-server-*.deb, percona-server-server-*.deb, mariadb-server-*.deb

New year & new blog
Employee_Team +2 Vote Up -0Vote Down

The new year is here and I have moved my (so far quite silent) blog to use WordPress and MySQL 5.5 GA.

Since I am using Ubuntu I downloaded a compressed tar archive. I installed it in a custom directory and for starting I wrote a little upstart script.

$ cat /etc/init/mysql-5.5.conf
start on startup
stop on shutdown …

Ubuntu Upstart for automatic MySQL start and stop - Part 2
+2 Vote Up -0Vote Down

I've done a little change to the upstart script I published in a recent blogpost. The issue is with mysqld_safe which has a few issues it seems, but so far I haven't tracked them down exactly. Anyway, if mysqld_safe is not in your path and you run it with the full path (as I do in the Upstart script which is run by root that may well not have the mysql bin directory in it's path), then mysqld_safe will behave strange in at least 5.5 when called with the full path, i.e.
/mnt/mysql/bin/mysqld_safe …

Hating Americans and Cats
+4 Vote Up -3Vote Down

Most of the time I think of myself as living in a fairly progressive and enlightened world. I'm fotunate that I work with a set of wonderful people, I can travel all over the world and I'm a member of an excellent theatre company. As a result, hatred of things, or at least expressions of hatred are generally just not tolerated in any of the circles in which I run. (With the exception, of course, of things that FAIL, like a particularly bad piece of code - but even then it's less about hatred and more about not liking something that didn't work)

There are two social acceptable exceptions to that rule, though: Americans, and cats.

I was reading a blog post earlier this morning (which …

It Happens

It's entirely possible, given my propensity to swear and rant and declare things to be Web Scale, that folks might get the idea that I do not like our newer NoSQL bretheren. Quite the contrary - I think almost all of them are exciting and well suited to various tasks. My biggest beef is in thinking that a single technology should be square-pegged into every round-hole anyone can find. This holds true for Drizzle and MySQL as well, by the way. Just because I work on Drizzle does not mean I think Drizzle should be the method of data storage for every blessed thing on the face of the planet - that would be silly!

I bring this up because I had my first instance of thinking that Cassandra might …
