Fun with Bugs #42 - Bugs Fixed in MySQL 5.7.12
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

MySQL 5.7.12 was released more than 2 weeks ago. New features introduced there in a form of "rapid plugins" are widely discussed, but I am more interested in bugs reported by MySQL Community users that are fixed there. Unfortunately I do not see MySQL Community Release Notes by Morgan (like this) for quite a some time, so I have to continue describing key bug fixes and name people who reported and verified bugs in my "Fun with Bugs" series.

On Upgrades to Percona Server 5.7 GA: Ubuntu 14.04 Case
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

After upgrading Percona Server 5.6.28 (and "full stack" of Percona software) to 5.7.10-3 GA on CentOS 6 and building it from Git Source on Fedora Core 23 yesterday, I've decided to spend some time upgrading Percona Server on my netbook that plays a role of "home build/test/VMs server" and runs under Ubuntu 14.04:
openxs@ao756:~$ uname -a
Linux ao756 3.13.0-77-generic #121-Ubuntu SMP Wed Jan …

On Upgrades to Percona Server 5.7 GA: CentOS 6 Case
+1 Vote Up -0Vote Down

As you probably noted, Percona had finally released Percona Server 5.7 GA two days ago. I had not paid much attention to this branch during last month or so, but as it's GA now I decided to check what's there, how it works and install/upgrade different boxes and VMs to use it.

For testing purposes and for this series of blog posts I am going to build it from Git source (at least on Fedora Core 23), upgrade to it on 32-bit …

On Upgrades to Percona Server 5.7 GA: Building from Git Source on Fedora
+1 Vote Up -0Vote Down

While writing my first post in this series I was bulding Percona Server 5.7 from Git sources on my wife's Fedora Core 23 box based on this manual page, for my collection of test instances. As I build MySQL and related software from sources …

MySQL Support People - Directors, Managers and Coordinators
+1 Vote Up -0Vote Down

This post is devoted to my colleagues whose contribution to MySQL Support was really important, but mostly non-technical, that is, pure Directors, Managers and Coordinators, who hardly ever reported any bug in MySQL in public and had to step into the technical issues from customers mostly when we, engineers, failed to some extent:

  • Tom Basil - he hired me twice, first as a Director of Support in MySQL back in 2005 and then as a COO in Percona in 2012. Tom was a Director of Support and Development (thanks Salle for clarification) in MySQL …

MySQL Support People - Those Who Joined Oracle to Work on MySQL
+1 Vote Up -0Vote Down

In this post I'd like to mention my colleagues from MySQL Support who had joined the team when Oracle already acquired Sun (and MySQL as a part of it), in 2010-2012. There were several really great engineers among them:

MySQL Support People - The Next Generation
+1 Vote Up -0Vote Down

My first post in this series caused quite an active discussion on Facebook. Readers correctly noted some mistakes in dates and missing names in the list. I've corrected some of the mistakes already and will correct some others later. What was also noted is that initially support for MySQL was provided by developers (this is really important, we'll get back to this later), and of them many had never even got a title of Support …

Fun with Bugs #41 - Bugs Fixed in MySQL 5.7.11
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

I've just noted that Oracle had released new versions of MySQL on February 5, 2016 formally, so while these days I am mostly thinking about the ways to do support properly, remembering my colleagues and trying to understand some of RocksDB internals, it's time to postpone all these and write about bugs again. This time about some of the public bug reports from MySQL Community and Oracle engineers that were fixed by Oracle in MySQL 5.7.11.

As usual, I'll try to mention who had reported a bug and who verified it, as I think that names …

MySQL Support People - Percona Support
+1 Vote Up -0Vote Down

I planned to continue this series of posts with the one about MySQL Support engineers who joined us in Oracle while I was working there, but based on recent events in my life I'd prefer to postpone it and move directly to the team I worked for during last 3+ years, Percona Support Team.

Disclamer: In the list below I still try to pay attention to public contribution by each of engineers mentioned to MySQL Community, mostly in a form of bug reports. This is not the only way they contributed, but I have to stick to this format in current series of posts. I also base my comments mostly on my memory and quick search of public …

I'd like to devote this long weekend post, the first in a new series, to my current and former colleagues who once worked or still work in a company that provided public MySQL Support service and had a job role of MySQL Support engineer. The list of companies include MySQL AB/Inc ("good old MySQL"), Sun, Oracle, Percona, MariaDB, FromDual, maybe more (I named only …
