Percona Monitoring Plugins 1.1.3. Addressed CVE-2014-2569.
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Percona is glad to announce the release of Percona Monitoring Plugins 1.1.3.

Changelog:

* Introduced more secure location of PHP script configs to harden a Cacti setup
* Addressed CVE-2014-2569

We have introduced a more secure location /etc/cacti/ for PHP script configs. Earlier, the only way was to keep .php.cnf configs inside of scripts/ folder which falls under the web directory of Cacti setup, thus provides a potential security vulnerability. We strongly recommend to move all .php.cnf files from /usr/share/cacti/scripts/ to /etc/cacti/ and also harden your Cacti setup.

New mydumper 0.6.1 release offers performance and usability features
+1 Vote Up -0Vote Down

One of the tasks within Percona Remote DBA is to ensure we have reliable backups with minimal impact. To accomplish this, one of the tools our team uses is called mydumper. We use mydumper for logical backups because of several nice features. Some of them are:

  • multithreaded, producing very fast backups compared to mysqldump
  • almost no locking, if not using non innodb tables
  • built-in compression
  • separate files for each table, making it easy to restore single tables or schema, and the possibility to hardlink files reducing the space needed to keep history of backups. Also this feature give you the possibility to restore with more than one thread.

How Percona tested Percona Server 5.6: A world premiere in advanced testing
+2 Vote Up -0Vote Down

8PM. One of the servers found a critical bug. Hop online and discuss, log bug. 10PM. Patch ready. 10:30PM. New build ready. 10:45PM. New RQG run initiated. This was by no means an uncommon sight during the months of testing that went into Percona Server 5.6, in fact it was commonplace.

At a certain point, we had 3 very high end servers (modern cpu’s, heaps of cores and memory), all equipped with either fast SSD’s or Fusion-io flash storage, executing thousands of trials, 8 in parallel per server, each executing 1 to 25 mysql threads per running mysqld instance.

And that was just the final months of testing. Before that much work was done on finding “every last bug out there”. We discovered many bugs in both upstream (Oracle’s MySQL 5.6) and in Percona Server 5.6. I personally logged around 100
