Webinar Thursday November 3: The MySQL Ecosystem in 2016

Join Percona’s Chief Evangelist Colin Charles on Thursday, November 3, 2016, at 10 am PDT/ 1:00pm EDT (UTC-7) as he presents “The MySQL Ecosystem in 2016.”

MySQL is a unique adult (now 21 years old) in many ways. It supports plugins. It supports storage engines. It is also owned by Oracle, thus birthing two branches of the popular opensource database: Percona Server and MariaDB Server. It also once spawned a fork: Drizzle. Lately, a consortium of web scale users (think a chunk of the top ten sites out there) have spawned WebScaleSQL.

You’re a busy DBA having to maintain this mix of technologies. Or you’re a CIO planning to choose one branch. How do you go about picking? Supporting multiple databases? Find out more in this talk. We will also take a deep-dive into what feature differences exist between MySQL/Percona …

InnoDB Troubleshooting: Q & A

In this blog, I will provide answers to the Q & A for the InnoDB Troubleshooting webinar.

First, I want to thank everybody for attending the August 11 webinar. The recording and slides for the webinar are available here. Below is the list of your questions that I wasn’t able to answer during the webinar, with responses:

Q: What’s a good speed for buffer pool speed/size for maximum query performance?

A: I am sorry, I don’t quite understand the question. InnoDB buffer pool is an in-memory buffer. In an ideal case, your whole active dataset (rows that are accessed by application regularly) should be in the buffer pool. There is a good …

Top Most Overlooked MySQL Performance Optimizations: Q & A

Thank you for attending my 22nd July 2016 webinar titled “Top Most Overlooked MySQL Performance Optimizations“. In this blog, I will provide answers to the Q & A for that webinar.

For hardware, which disk raid level do you suggest? Is raid5 suggested performance-wise and data-integrity-wise?
RAID 5 comes with high overhead, as each write turns into a sequence of four physical I/O operations, two reads and two writes. We know that RAID 5s have some write penalty, and it could affect the performance on spindle disks. In most cases, we advise using alternative RAID levels. Use RAID 5 when disk capacity is more important than performance (e.g., archive databases …

Webinar Thursday 8/11 at 10 am: InnoDB Troubleshooting

Join Sveta Smirnova Thursday, August 11 at 10 am PDT (UTC-7) for a webinar on InnoDB Troubleshooting.

InnoDB is one of the most popular database engines. This general-purpose storage engine is widely used, has been MySQL’s default engine since version 5.6, and holds MySQL system tables since 5.7. It is hard to find a MySQL installation that doesn’t have at least one InnoDB table.

InnoDB is not a simple engine. It has its own locks, transactions, log files, monitoring, options and more. It is also under active development. Some of the latest features introduced in 5.6 are read-only transactions and multiple buffer pools (which now can persist on the disk between restarts). In 5.7, InnoDB …

Webinar July 14, 10 am PDT: Introduction into storage engine troubleshooting

Please join Sveta Smirnova for a webinar Thursday, July 14 at 10 am PDT (UTC-7) on an Introduction Into Storage Engine Troubleshooting.

The number of MySQL storage engines provide great flexibility for database users, administrators and developers. At the same time, engines add an extra level of complexity when it comes to troubleshooting issues. Before choosing the right troubleshooting tool, you need to answer the following questions (and often others):

  • What part of the server is responsible for my issue?
  • Was a lock set at the server or engine level?
  • Is a standard or engine-specific tool better?
  • Where are the engine-specific options?
  • How to …

Webinar Wednesday June 29: Percona XtraDB Cluster Reference Architecture

Please join Jay Janssen for the webinar Percona XtraDB Cluster Reference Architecture Wednesday, June 29 at 10:00 AM PDT (UTC- 7).

A reference architecture shows a typical, common, best-practice deployment of a system with all the surrounding infrastructure. In the case of database clusters, this can include the hosting platform, load balancing, monitoring, backups, etc.

Percona published a commonly referred to Percona XtraDB Cluster reference architecture on the Percona blog in 2012 (which is included in the current manual). However, this architecture is out of date.

This talk will present a revised and updated Percona XtraDB Cluster reference architecture for 2016, …

Webinar Thursday May 26: Troubleshooting MySQL hardware resource usage

Join Sveta on Thursday, May 26, 2016, at 10 am PDT (UTC-7) for her webinar Troubleshooting MySQL hardware resource usage.

MySQL does not just run on its own. It stores data on disk, and stores data and temporarily results in memory. It uses CPU resources to perform operations, and a network to communicate with its clients.

In this webinar, we’ll discuss common resource usage issues, how they affect MySQL Server performance, and methods to find out how resources are being used. We will employ both OS-level tools, and new features in Performance Schema that provide detailed information on what exactly is happening inside MySQL Server.

Peter Zaitsev webinar January 27th: Compression In Open Source Databases

Percona invites you to attend a webinar Wednesday, January 27th, with CEO Peter Zaitsev: Compression In Open Source Databases. Register now!

Data growth has been tremendous in the last decade and shows no signs of stopping. To deal with this trend database technologies have implemented a number of approaches, and data compression is by far the most common and important. Compression in open source databases is complicated, and there are a lot of different approaches – each with their own implications.

In this talk we will perform a survey of compression in some of the most popular open source database engines including: Innodb, TokuDB, MongoDB, WiredTiger, RocksDB, and PostgreSQL.

Important information: …
