MySQL Connect HOL content posted
Employee +1 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Just a quick post to note that the content from my hands-on lab at MySQL Connect (“MySQL Enterprise Features in Practice”) has been uploaded to the content catalog, and can be found here.  This includes the 36-page lab manual and example commands and programs (mostly in Java; the package includes both compiled and source code).  For those who attended the lab, this is an opportunity to complete the exercises we didn’t get to in the 2.5 hours, and for those who missed it, an opportunity to learn more about the features and capabilities of key MySQL Enterprise products and features such as MySQL Enterprise Audit plugin, MySQL Enterprise Monitor

Creating custom rules in MySQL Enterprise Monitor
Employee +3 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Quite some time ago, I published scripts to implement password policies for MySQL, and promised to show how to expose violations of that policy via MySQL Enterprise Monitor (MEM).  That stalled somewhat with other objectives, but I want to revisit it now that MEM 3.0 is GA.  If you haven’t tried MEM 3.0 yet, consider doing so – it’s quick and easy to set up.

Many people don’t realize that MEM can be extended to monitor things beyond MySQL Server health, including visibility into application state as

MySQL Connect and Oracle Open World Presentations Online
Employee +3 Vote Up -0Vote Down

After a slight delay (travel and catching up with “real work”), I’ve now uploaded the talks that I gave at MySQL Connect and Oracle Open World.

They are available on my Presentations Page, and inline below for convenience. The “Introduction to MySQL Enterprise Monitor” talk was actually a full demo, but there are some screenshots of MEM 3.0 in there if you’re interested in seeing a high level picture of what it looks like now.

Thanks to all that attended my talks, I got a lot of good questions and feedback!

A friday MongoDB funny
+1 Vote Up -0Vote Down

I had to laugh (just a bit) at this on the exhibitor floor at Oracle Open World 2013. There was a large MongoDB presence at the Slot 301. There are a few reasons.
First, the identity crisis remains. There is no MongoDB in the list of exhibitors, it’s 10gen, but where is the 10gen representation in the sign. 99.99% of attendees would not know this.
Second, the first and only slide I saw (as shown below), tries to directly compare implementing a solution to Oracle. The speaker made some comment but I really zoned out quickly. Having worked with MongoDB, even on one of my own projects, contemplated the ROI of being proficient in this for consulting, even discussing at length with the CEO and CTO, and hearing only issues with MongoDB with existing MySQL clients, I have come

OL 4 MySQL: Extending my VM’s root f/s online
Employee +0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Ok, so after all the things that have been announced @MySQLConnect, I’ve got to play around with them. First stop: space (no.. not ‘the final frontier’).

I need more space on my f/s to get installing. I was a bit of a scrooge when I created my Oracle Linux virtual machine, so now I’m paying the price.

As I’m using Virtual Box, I’ve added a new SATA Controller vmdk of 10G, SATA Port 1 and then start it up.

Will be able to identify the new & unused partition:

Later this week I’m traveling to San Francisco to attend MySQL Connect – which looks like an exciting event to be at. I’m going to deliver two talks at this show, both on Sunday – MySQL Indexing Best Practices for MySQL 5.6 and Optimizing MySQL Configuration for MySQL 5.6. I will also be there for a Percona Toolkit BoF on Saturday and at our Booth (6004) during select expo hall hours.

September: A busy month for MySQL events
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Now with summer winding down and school back in session, we get into a very busy time with many great opportunities to discover more about MySQL with several excellent MySQL events.

At first I wanted to cover all autumn events here but if I did that this post would be far too long. So instead I’m focusing on a few wonderful MySQL events that I’m going to be involved with in September.

In a few short days we’re running Percona University at Washington, D.C. This free event on September 12 provides a great opportunity to learn about latest

The sessions for this year’s MySQL Connect conference have now been scheduled – as you can see below, my 2 MySQL Cluster sessions will be on Saturday 21st September at 11:30 and 14:30 (Pacific).

The MySQL Connect conference is a great opportunity to listen to and chat with people from the MySQL community – including the engineers who work on or around MySQL as well people who are using it in production.

Oracle OpenWorld 2013

I registered yesterday for Oracle OpenWorld 2013, and I’ll look forward to seeing friends there. Having worked in the Oracle 12c beta for a year, I’ll be interested in the presentations. Also, hearing more about Java 7 at JavaOne. On the downside, I’m missing MySQL Connect this year.

Cloud computing offers many possibilities, and container and pluggable databases are a great solution. We’ve two new acronyms with the Oracle 12c release. A containerized database is a CDB, and a pluggable database is a PDB. I’m looking forward to seeing more about the provisioning of PDBs during the conference. If

Last week to submit for MySQL Connect!
Employee +4 Vote Up -0Vote Down

The Call for Papers for MySQL Connect 2013 will close this Friday.  This is the premier Oracle-sponsored MySQL conference, and a great opportunity for community users and customers alike to connect with Oracle staff from engineering, support, consulting and other organizations, as well as community partners and peers.  Maybe you’d like to talk about your experiences integrating one of the new MySQL 5.6 features.  Or maybe you’d like to share best practices you’ve developed for integrating with Hadoop.  Perhaps you’ve extended MySQL and want to tell the community about it.  Take advantage of this opportunity and submit your proposal this week!

2012, the Best Year for MySQL (...so far, but more to come)
+9 Vote Up -3Vote Down
It's the end of the year and, before the world ends ;-) , I feel the pressure to follow up on last year's article "2011, a great year for MySQL in Review". I'll adopt a similar format and mention things in context, covering products, marketing, momentum, etc. at a high level. I may have missed something and I hope my colleagues will contribute to the list.

I really do think it's been the best year for MySQL so far... well, at least since when I signed my contract with MySQL AB at the end of 2007. We're just at the beginning of our journey and I wish to the MySQL family, to our community and ecosystem an even better 2013!

Solving the Challenges of Big Databases with MySQL

When you’re using MySQL for big data (more than ten times as large as main memory), these challenges often arise: loading data fast; maintaining indexes under insertions deletions, and updates; adding and removing columns online; adding indexes online; preventing slave lag; and compressing data effectively.

This session shows why some of these challenges are difficult to solve with storage engines based on B-trees, how Fractal Tree® data structures work, and why they can help solve these problems. Tokutek sells a transaction-safe Fractal Tree storage engine for MySQL, but the presentation is primarily about the underlying technology. It includes a discussion of both the theoretical and practical aspects of Fractal Tree indexes.

I have the privilege of being able to give

The MySQL Connect conference call for papers is closed and the response was amazing. Now the problem is that we have a few hundred great session and only two days and nights to get everything presented. The submissions range from the big companies to private individuals and old, familiar faces in the MySQL Community to some new folks with top notch material.

Database as a service, cloud computing, tuning, InnoDB secrests, cluster implementation, Oracle/MySQL data transfers, replication tricks, query enhancement, big data, stored routines, J2ee, server refactoring, backups, NoSQL/SQL, and other subjects are covered — and those were just the first

PC World has written a post with this title(*) about the upcoming MySQL Connect conference and references the Percona Live conference and an official Percona comment. As this is not syndicated in Planet MySQL I encourage you to read the full article.

This is the MySQL conference to get technical presentations by the many great Oracle/MySQL technical staff who will not be in attendance at Percona Live. There will also be a strong community presence in speaking at Oracle Connect in September. While Oracle was organizing a dedicated MySQL event in April for the community with all vendors including Percona to replace the conference dropped by long
