Location for InnoDB tablespace in MySQL 5.6.6
+2 Vote Up -0Vote Down

There is one new feature in MySQL 5.6 that didn’t get the attention it deserved (at least from me ) : “DATA DIRECTORY” for InnoDB tables.

This is implemented since MySQL 5.6.6 and can be used only at the creation of the table. It’s not possible to change the DATA DIRECTORY with an ALTER for a normal table (but it’s in some case with partitioned ones as you will see below). If you do so, the option will be just ignored:

mysql> CREATE TABLE `sales_figures` (
    ->   `region_id` int(11) DEFAULT NULL,
    ->   `sales_date` date DEFAULT NULL,
    ->   `amount` int(11) DEFAULT NULL
    -> ) ENGINE=InnoDB DEFAULT CHARSET=latin1
    -> DATA DIRECTORY = '/tb1/';

Managing MySQL with Percona Toolkit by Frédéric Descamps
+2 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Frédéric Descamps of Percona.

Percona Toolkit is Maatkit & Aspersa combined. Opensource and the tools are very useful for a DBA.

You need Perl, DBI, DBD::mysql, Term::ReadKey. Most tools are written in Perl, and whatever is in Bash is being re-written in Perl. There is also a tarball or RPM or DEB packages.

Know your environment. The hardware & OS are crucial for you to know. How much memory/CPU do you use? Do you use swap? Is this a physical/virtual machine? Do you have free space? What kind of RAID controller? Volumes? Disk? What about the network interfaces? What IO schedulers are used? Which filesystem is the data stored on? To answer all that, just use pt-summary.

Know your MySQL
