Using Flexviews – part one, introduction to materialized views
+2 Vote Up -0Vote Down

If you know me, then you probably have heard of Flexviews. If not, then it might not be familiar to you. I’m giving a talk on it at the MySQL 2011 CE, and I figured I should blog about it before then. For those unfamiliar, Flexviews enables you to create and maintain incrementally refreshable materialized views.

You might be asking yourself “what is an incrementally refreshable materialized view?”. If so, then keep reading. This is the first in a multi-part series …

Intro to OLAP
+8 Vote Up -0Vote Down

This is the first of a series of posts about business intelligence tools, particularly OLAP (or online analytical processing) tools using MySQL and other free open source software. OLAP tools are a part of the larger topic of business intelligence, a topic that has not had a lot of coverage on MPB. Because of this, I am going to start out talking about these topics in general, rather than getting right to gritty details of their performance.

I plan on covering the following topics:

  1. Introduction to OLAP and business intelligence. (this post)
  2. Identifying the differences …

Air traffic queries in InfiniDB: early alpha

As Calpont announced availability of InfiniDB I surely couldn't miss a chance to compare it with previously tested databases in the same environment.
See my previous posts on this topic:

Analyzing air traffic performance with InfoBright and MonetDB

Accidentally me and Baron played with InfoBright (see http://www.mysqlperformanceblog.com/2009/09/29/quick-comparison-of-myisam-infobright-and-monetdb/) this week. And following Baron's example I also run the same load against MonetDB. Reading comments to Baron's post I tied to load the same data to LucidDB, but I was not successful in this.

I tried to analyze a bigger dataset and I took public available data

Starring Sakila: MySQL university recording, slides and materials available onMySQLForge
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

The structure of the presentation is still largely the same, although I condensed various bits, and I added practical examples of setting up the ETL process and creating a Pentaho Analysis View (OLAP pivot table) on top of a Mondrian Cube.

The slides, session recording, and materials such as SQL …
