MySQL Windows Users – Use Grep to Search MySQL Source Code
+1 Vote Up -0Vote Down

For Windows users, if you try searching the MySQL source code for various strings, you know you will often come up empty with the built-in Windows search.

It wasn’t too long ago and I was searching the source for “MALLOC_OVERHEAD”. My Windows search came up empty, and someone suggested I try grep for Windows.

Well, I downloaded it, extracted it to the location I wanted, and added the .exe to the $PATH.

Now I can grep away!

See the new results when searching for “MALLOC_OVERHEAD”:

C:\mysql-5.5\mysql-5.5>grep -r "MALLOC_OVERHEAD" .
./client/mysql.cc:   (longlong) 2*1024L*1024L*1024L, MALLOC_OVERHEAD, 1024, 0},
./client/mysql.cc:   REQUIRED_ARG, 16384, 1024, 512*1024*1024L, MALLOC_OVERHEAD, 1024, 0},
./client/mysqldump.c:   (longlong) 2L*1024L*1024L*1024L, MALLOC_OVERHEAD, 1024, 0},

A decade of open source IPOs
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Red Hat is celebrating the 10 year anniversary of its initial public offering. An anniversary to be proud of for Red Hat, but one that has given The VAR Guy pause for thought about the relative success of open source in the past 10 years.

“Would anyone have predicted that no additional open source companies would launch IPOs over the next decade? Ten years without an open source IPO … amazing and somewhat depressing for open source business advocates,” writes the VAR Guy.

It is somewhat depressing that there are not more public open source vendors. However, the statement

MySQL projects on launchpad, sourceforge, google code and forge.mysql.com
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

While doing some work for the MySQL MMM project, I got distracted and browsed around for a bit. I started searching for MySQL on google code, and then expanded that search into launchpad, sourceforge and of course forge.mysql.com.
I found that there are literally thousands of FOSS MySQL projects on these sites. No surprise really, but still not something we stop to think about every day.
I thought I would share that with you here so you can go and have a look for yourself to see if you see anything that might be useful to you. Of course if you do, please

The commercialisation of Memcached
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

There has been a significant increase in interest in the Memcached, the open source distributed memory object-caching system, in recent months, as a number of vendors look to exploit its popularity in Web 2.0 and social networking environments.

Like Hadoop, which has become the focus of a number of commercial plays, it would appear that the time is right for commercialization of Memcached. But what is it, here did it come from, and what are the chances for vendors to rake in serious cash? Here are the details.

What is it?
Pronounced mem-cash-dee, Memcached was originally created by Danga Interactive (the developer of LiveJournal, which was acquired by Six Apart in 2005) to speed up the performance of dynamic Web applications by alleviating database load. Memcached has become an industry standard for improving the performance of

Open source and SMBs. New funding for Lucid Imagination. And more.

On open source and SMBs
Savio Rodrigues contrasted Dell’s plans to target SMBs with bundles of hardware and open source with research from Forrester that indicated that SMBs are still wary of open source, while Matt Asay noted that there are significant opportunities for open source vendors if they can work out how to crack the SMB market and suggested that the way to make software easier for SMBs and to monetize it might actually be cloud-based computing.

OStatic noted that the issue may well be one of lack of awareness and that Dell’s initiative, as well as the

PBXT moves to Launchpad
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down
It's been a week or 2 and some of you may already have heard that PBXT has moved from Sourceforge to Lauchpad.net: https://launchpad.net/pbxt.

There are several very good reasons for the move, not the least of which is that MySQL has already moved to Launchpad, and Drizzle is there too. It simply makes sense for a storage engine like PBXT to be on the same platform.

And check this out, Stewart Smith has already ported PBXT to Drizzle. You will find the tree here: PBXT in Drizzle. I will be pulling Stewart's changes back into the PBXT

Maatkit version 2152 released

Download Maatkit

Maatkit version 2152 is ready for download. This release is also known as the “is this project really alive?” release. We thought we should delay until MySQL released a new Community Server version. Just kidding — it has nothing to do with that.

This release is also very significant in that it’s the first one that has large code contributions by someone other than myself. As you may know, Percona (my employer) has hired the very talented Daniel Nichter, author of mysqlreport and other goodies, to help with Maatkit. So far it is a match made in heaven, and

Thanks to Tony Lawrence for inspiring today’s post. Hopefully these links don’t stink. 

Anthony Lawrence: Reasons I Don’t Like Social Media

Tools that once were valuable for pointing out the best of the web often become obsolete or spammy (you might say this about Digg). Tony’s example is StumbleUpon, a link sharing site that I love.  He contends that the social networking site has become clogged with junk or at least doesn’t provide consistent

Growth limits of open-source vis-a-vis MySQL Toolkit

Si Chen wrote recently about the growth limits of open-source projects. He points out that as a project becomes larger, it gets harder to maintain. I can only agree. As the MySQL Toolkit project has grown, it's become significantly more work to maintain, document, and enhance.

MySQL Archiver 0.9.2 released
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

This release fixes some minor bugs and adds a plugin mechanism. Now you can extend MySQL Archiver with your own code easily. You could use this to run setup and tear-down, hook code into the archiving process, and more. Possibilities include building summary tables in a data warehouse during archiving, handling dependencies such as foreign keys before archiving each row, or applying advanced logic to determine which rows to archive.

MySQL Archiver 0.9.1 released
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

MySQL Archiver is the implementation of the efficient forward-only archiving and purging strategies I wrote about more than a year ago. It nibbles rows from a table, then inserts them into another table and/or writes them to a file. The object is to do this without interfering with critical online transaction-processing (OLTP) queries.
