We finally got the MySQL Connector/Python repositories reorganised on Launchpad. The following changes have been made:

  • Old, unmaintained repositories have been marked as obsolete.
  • Downloadable source distributions of obsolete versions have been removed, use the MySQL download website.
  • Connector/Python v1.0 source has been uploaded to Launchpad up till v1.0.5b1.
  • URLs point to the MySQL website.
  • Maintainer is now ‘Oracle/MySQL Engineering’, the team I (Geert Vanderkelen) am part of.
Consolidating MariaDB project tools
+3 Vote Up -0Vote Down

It is not a secret that we’ve been kicking the tires and playing with JIRA for project management. After using it since the beginning of the year most of us like the feel of it and we’ve decided that it makes sense to start using it more.

As you know, the MariaDB project has many fragmented resources. We report bugs in Launchpad. We store our plans in worklog. We’ve never used the Launchpad Blueprint feature for this very reason. We don’t use Launchpad Answers because we have the Knowledgebase.

With this move to hosted JIRA (yes, this is an important link: http://mariadb.org/jira) we can

Added a Table of Contents
+1 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Not a big deal, but I just added a “Table of Contents” page to my blog to make finding older articles much easier.

I noticed most of my posts are quite lengthy, and it can take a bit of searching/clicking to find an older entry. So unless you happen to recall the ‘month/year’ it was published, which I don’t even remember that, then hopefully this will help.

Really simple, and looks just like this:

Bzr and launchpad tricks: firefox plugin
+3 Vote Up -0Vote Down

If you work with bazaar, you have seen its URIs. You can find the complete list is in the bzr help urlspec. Although I commonly use only a subset of that, like bzr+ssh://bazaar.launchpad.net/~maria-captains/maria/5.2-serg/ and http://bazaar.launchpad.net/%2Bbranch/mysql-server/5.5/.

In addition I often use Launchpad aliases, such as lp:~maria-captains/maria/5.3-serg/, lp:maria/5.3, and lp:869001.

And finally, there are common abbreviations that we have used in MySQL, and others that we use in MariaDB, for example bug#12345 and wl#90.

What’s annoying, I need to remember that wl#90 corresponds to http://askmonty.org/worklog/?tid=90

MySQL Utilities
+3 Vote Up -0Vote Down

I recently explored the mysql-utilities scripts available on launchpad ( https://launchpad.net/mysql-utilities ) The examples below are from my local test db.
The code is available via a quick bzr download after you sign in with your launchpad id of course.

bzr launchpad-login <user_id_ from_launchpad> 

bzr branch lp:~mysql/mysql-utilities/trunk 
MySQL Utilities code does have some requirements, Python between 2.6 and 3.x . So check your python version , some of the distributions have older versions. ( # python –version ) If you want the manuals, then Sphinx (which also requires Jinja) is also required. Of course a connector to the database would be helpful. You can get the latest python connector, via launchpad as well, at

The MySQL Source is Now Back on Launchpad!
+2 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Last Friday, I had posted that the MySQL Source Code on Launchpad had not been updated (or rather not accessible by Lauchpad) in nearly a month.

I had actually started to file a bug report about this, but when posting the relevant links for documentation, I had noticed new information had been posted yesterday (10/10/2011).

Here was the orignal MySQL Launchpad page:

https://code.launchpad.net/~mysql/mysql-server/mysql-trunk

Here is the new message on this page:

“This is the old MySQL server branch and it is no longer used since mirroring setup has changed.

You can find the development head at https://code.launchpad.net/~mysql/mysql-server/trunk instead.”

If you navigate to the new page:

Where’s the Updated MySQL Source Code on Launchpad?
+8 Vote Up -0Vote Down

I know I’m not the only one to have noticed that all MySQL branches on Launchpad have not been accessible since September 10th, 2011, nearly 1 month.

Just visit here:

https://code.launchpad.net/~mysql/mysql-server/mysql-trunk

You’ll see it says:

“This branch may be out of date, because Launchpad has not been able to access it since 2011-09-10.”

I’d been seeing “No revisions to pull.” messages latley, when running “bzr pull”, but didn’t give it a whole lot of thought until reading the above note on Launchpad today.

Is it due to the recent security breach (where mysql.com was hacked and infected some visitors with malware)? Well, I doubt it since this started on 9/10/2011 and the breach, according to The Register, occurred on 9/26/2011 (some

Happiness is a Warm Cloud

Although a few folks knew about where I and many of the Sun Drizzle team had ended up, we’ve waited until today to “officially” tell folks what’s up. We — Monty Taylor, Eric Day, Stewart Smith, Lee Bieber, and myself — are all now “Rackers”, working at Rackspace Cloud. And yep, we’re still workin’ on Drizzle. That’s the short story.

MySAR: A sar-like Utility for MySQL
+2 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Why a New Utility?

A couple of months back, Tim Procter, Sheeri Cabral and I were discussing about how best to diagnose a MySQL server and/or tune its performance, automating the process as much as possible. The Performance Advisors from MySQL Enterprise (http://www.mysql.com/products/enterprise/) do this, but most of our customers don’t have a subscription and Pythian’s collective experience is not necessary reflected by its rules.

In our daily work, we have used Major Heyden’s MySQL Tuner, Mark Leith’s Statpack and our own tools to review a MySQL server configuration parameters. However, all of these tools had limitations in regards of what

More Drizzle plug-ins
Employee +2 Vote Up -0Vote Down
Last weekend, I finally got some time to look around Drizzle. I had already compiled it on my laptop, but hadn't really looked at the code.Then, I thought that looking over some of the blueprints on Launchpad, would be a good way to get familiar with the code base.After a quick search, I found move function/time/ functions into plugin(s)

This blueprint is basically to create UDF plug-ins for the different time related functions.There was no priority assigned and it was on the low hanging fruit milestone. Which was perfect
