A Case for Write Optimizations in MySQL
+2 Vote Up -0Vote Down

As a storage engine developer, I am excited for MySQL 5.6. Looking at http://dev.mysql.com/tech-resources/articles/whats-new-in-mysql-5.6.html, there has been plenty of work done to improve the performance of reads in MySQL for all storage engines (provided they take advantage of the new APIs).

What would be great to add is API improvements to increase the performance of writes, and more specifically, updates. For many applications that perform updates, such as applications that do click counting or impression counting, there are significant …

Challenges of Big Databases with MySQL – OOW11 Presentation
+1 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Many database management tasks become difficult as you move from millions of rows and gigabytes of data to billions of rows and terabytes of data. Such tasks include ingesting data while maintaining indexes; changing schemas without downtime; and supporting connections, replication, and backup. For some scaling problems (connections and replication), MySQL® is better than most of the competition. For others, such as indexing, schema changes, and backup, MySQL has typically been harder to use. Fortunately, the tasks MySQL does well are in its core, whereas the tasks that are more difficult can be solved with storage engine plug-ins.

TokuDB Stats
+1 Vote Up -0Vote Down

I’ve been benchmarking and testing TokuDB for a few months now. One goal of benchmarking is to understand what is limiting the performance of a particular configuration. I frequently use “show engine [innodb/tokudb] status;” from within the MySQL command line client as part of my research.

As I run most of my benchmarks on InnoDB as well as TokuDB, I noticed that there are significant differences in the way each present status information. InnoDB returns a single row, with various sections and carriage returns to maintain readability. In contrast, TokuDB presents one piece of status information per row (currently 139 rows as of TokuDB v5.0.5). This is an important …

This Weekend in Japan
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

We were happy to see a lot of folks from Japan on Twitter this weekend having a discussion about MySQL and Tokutek. While we always endeavor to explain ourselves as simply as possible, hearing what users and peers have to say and ask in their native language is very helpful. Here is a sampling of several of the 30+ tweets and re-tweets (translations courtesy of a colleague I know from frequent past visits to Tokyo and Yokohama):

First, @frsyuki provided a general overview:

Unless you are Ashton Kutcher (@aplusk), or one of his Hollywood buddies, you don’t need to read any further. Allow me to explain…

Over the weekend, we launched our new website. This type of announcement used to be interesting in the high-tech world. I heard Kara Swisher of the WSJ’s All things D speak at a …

Indexing: The Director’s Cut

Thanks again to Erin O’Neill and Mike Tougeron for having me at the SF MySQL Meetup last month for the talk on “Understanding Indexing.” The crowd was very interactive, and I appreciated that over 100 people signed up for the event and left some very positive comments and reviews.

Thanks to Mike, a video of the talk is now available:

As a brief overview – Application performance often depends on how fast a …

Don’t Thrash: How to Cache your Hash on Flash
+1 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Last week I gave a talk entitled “Don’t Thrash: How to Cache your Hash.” The talk took place at the Workshop on Algorithms and Data Structures (ADS) in a medieval castle turned conference center in Bertinoro, Italy. An earlier version of this work (with the same title) appeared at the HotStorage conference in Portland, OR. Tokutek co-founders Bradley, Martin, and I are coauthors on the work, along with students and …

Shard-Query turbo charges Infobright community edition (ICE)
+2 Vote Up -1Vote Down

Shard-Query is an open source tool kit which helps improve the performance of queries against a MySQL database by distributing the work over multiple machines and/or multiple cores. This is similar to the divide and conquer approach that Hive takes in combination with Hadoop. Shard-Query applies a clever approach to parallelism which allows it to significantly improve the performance of queries by spreading the work over all available compute resources. In this test, …

OQGRAPH at MySQL UC 2011
+2 Vote Up -0Vote Down

I had a good and lively audience at my presentation today. I was happy to give them a sneek preview of the Mk.III implementation of OQGRAPH.

Oh yeah! I guess I'm announcing the availability of the source code of the MkIII implementation.

Links are in my slides... http://goo.gl/UrybZ

Btw, building the storage engine requires Boost libraries and libJudy installed. It's currently in a MariaDB

MySQL/Drizzle as a Cloud Storage access layer

 Just got done with day 1 from the MySQL conf 2011... tutorial day. I decided to attend a session a bit outside of my comfort zone, so I chose MySQL Plugin Development. I haven't written any serious C/C++ for over 10 years, but lately it's been more appealing to me.
