Ning Tech Talk on MySqL - Date Correction

Apologies for the scheduling conflict but the date has moved to the 20th of July.

 

Save the date: July 20, 2011

RSVP here: Ning-Tech-Talks


There have been many database infrastructure changes through Ning’s history since the company began in 2004. Our most recent, and hopefully final, database iteration is running on MySQL.  Over the past year we’ve designed and implemented a stable and highly available MySQL environment.  MySQL was chosen to reduce Ning’s total cost of ownership and increase overall availability to our customers, Network Creators and their members.

 

Led by Chris Schneider, Ning’s MySQL Architect, join us at this Ning Tech Talk as he explains how we implemented and currently maintain MySQL on the …

Comparing MySQL Statement-Based and Row-Based Replication

There are many ways you can replicate MySQL data, whether it be a simple two-node cluster, chain or master/master. This article explains the two types of data replication (Statement-Based Replication and Row-Based Replication) available in MySQL.

MySQL Workbench - Top 13 things you should know

MySQL Workbench has come a long way and keeps getting better! I honestly don't think that millage may vary on this one as it is one of the best no-cost GUI tools created for MySQL.


I've always been pro command line for MySQL administration; however, there have always been powerful GUI tools that can aid administration, development and other tasks. Some great tools that I have used in the past are Toad, Navicat, phpmyadmin, and WebYog. Although all of the tools listed above are good I have had a lot of success with MySQL Workbench, plus it's free.


I should also note that when I do use MySQL Workbench it's more for my QA, test and development MySQL instances. Call me crazy but I think it's just too easy to inadvertently damage production with how easy this tool is to work with. Plus, in most environments you don't want a flock of users looking at production servers anyway. That said, I do …

Simple Automation - Examining your MySQL Index Usage

I have a new article posted on the Database Journal...

- Abstract -

In the majority of MySQL systems, the schema is always updated and changed based on the needs and focus of the application, making it somewhat difficult to keep up with all of the changes that come down the pipe.


Knowing how to index a schema based on the queries using the system is a great skill to have. In the majority of the systems I have worked on, the schema is always updated and changed based on the needs and focus of the application. That said, it can be somewhat difficult to keep up with all of the changes that come down the pipe, especially if there are many changes every week. To help identify the indexes that are being used there are a few tools out there to help. One of the best resides in the MAAKIT called, …

MySQL Enterprise Dashboard - It's Cool!


I've been using MySQL Enterprise Monitor for some time now and have seen it grow from a somewhat clunky (ALPHA version) to a scalable and robust monitoring system. The MySQL Enterprise Monitor makes my job easier in a number of ways. Below is a short list of what I love about MySQL Enterprise Monitor:

  1. Tunable, agent based monitoring
  2. Historic RRD graphs
  3. MySQL Query Analyzer
  4. Replication topology visualization


MySQL Enterprise Monitor was highlighted during "MySQL Sunday" at the Oracle Open World conference this past month. Given the ease of implementation and helpful GUI tools, MySQLEnterprise Monitor provides almost instant benefits for any MySQL shop.
