I spoke last month at linux.conf.au 2014 in Perth, Australia, and one of my sessions focused on the “Continuous Integration (CI) testing of Percona XtraDB Cluster (PXC)” at the Developer,Testing, Release and CI miniconf.
This talk covered the continuous integration[Read more...]
Today we’re celebrating Percona’s 7th anniversary. A lot has changed in these past 7 years – we have grown from a two-person outfit focused exclusively on consulting to a 100-person company with teammates in 22 different countries and 18 different states, now providing Support, Consulting, RemoteDBA, Server Development and[Read more...]
A couple of us have been taking about it a lot already .. we wanted to host a one day #devops event in .be already last year.. then talks about starting a meetup group started again with @wonko_be but it was @fs111 pushing the final button and calling the rest of the .be community to order, we've set a date
and the first session will take place (agenda still needs to be detirmined)
So all you Belgian devops enthousiasts, maark October 11th in your calendar and go register here
We already have 2 other venues (Gent, Boom) lined up .. but let's get this first one started :)
Next to that here's an update for the rest of my upcoming Conference Season :
The update has already appeared in the Jenkins update centre, so you should already be able to upgrade to it.
From the desk of your new Bazaar plugin for Jenkins maintainer, I give you Version 1.18.
This release has two good bug fixes:
We’ve been running the same code as this release at Percona for about 2 months now (the second bugfix was one I wanted to test first before submitting upstream). This is the big fix that fixed all our problems with using bazaar with Jenkins in a large deployment.[Read more...]
For Drizzle and for all of the projects we work on at Percona we use the Bazaar revision control system (largely because it’s what we were using at MySQL and it’s what MySQL still uses). We also use Jenkins.
We have a lot of jobs in our Jenkins. A lot. We build upstream MySQL 5.1, 5.5 and 5.6, Percona Server 5.1, Percona Server 5.5, XtraBackup 1.6, 2.0 and 2.1. For each of these we also have the normal trunk builds as well as parameterised ones that allow a developer to test out a tree before they ask for it to be merged. We also have each of these products across seven operating systems and for each of those both x86 32bit and 64bit. If we weren’t already in the[Read more...]

Today's topic is deployment. It's called one-click deployment for a reason: Developers are lazy.
It's hard to do less than clicking on one button, so that's our goal.
With the growing need for lower time-to-market and faster response to user feedback it is inevitable to not be limited by technical factors (there are enough other obstacles already). The focus lies on reproducible results.
So, what do we need? Actually, not much. Disregarding the tools and practices that build the foundation of agile software development, you only need a central build server. But you've already got that one covered, right?
If you don't, you should get one. It's a huge help to discover errors quickly and be alerted instantly. This usually leads to a shorter time frame until a fix is done. Tests are run continuously and new parts are[Read more...]
At Percona, we’re now using sphinx for our documentation. We’re also using Jenkins for our continuous integration. We have compiler warnings from GCC being parsed by Jenkins using the built in filters, but there isn’t one for the sphinx warnings.
Luckily, in the configuration page for Jenkins, the Warnings plugin allows you to specify your own filters. I’ve added the following filter to process warnings from sphinx:[Read more...]

While Oracle deserves some praise for its donation of OpenOffice.org code to the Apache Foundation, it is disappointing again to see a legitimate open source market contender that has been marginalized by miscommunication and mismanagement of the project by a large vendor.
OpenOffice.org, warts and all, was probably the most significant competition for Microsoft Office for years and in many ways demonstrated the advantages of open source, helping usher in wider use of it, as well as greater usability. OO.o was in fact my reason for originally investigating and moving to open source software more than a decade ago. Regardless of past mismanagement of community and technology, that competitive factor has been diminished greatly since Oracle took ownership of[Read more...]
