Sometimes a Variety of Databases is THE Database You Need
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

We were just leafing through the 2015 edition of The DZone Guide to Database and Persistence Management, and we noticed some interesting stats in the guide's included survey, about which we'd like to share some observations. The survey is one of the ebook's central features, and it includes feedback from over 800 IT Professionals, with 63% of those respondents coming from companies with over 100 employees and 69% with over 10 years of experience -- they represent a significant and important cross-section of our industry.

VividCortex Adds Query Analysis Features
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

VividCortex is all about optimizing your queries. Many of our users asked us to analyse their queries, searching for common errors and mistakes.

It's true that there are some excellent tools out there to perform the same tasks, such as pt-query-advisor from the great Percona Toolkit. But having this information available right in our web application is something we always wanted to do, too. And today we released that!

Today we added Query Analysis to our …

When simple SQL can be complex
+1 Vote Up -0Vote Down

I think SQL is a very simple language, but ofcourse I'm biased.

But even a simple statement might have more complexity to it than you might think.

Do you know what the result is of this statement?

SELECT FALSE = FALSE = TRUE;

scroll down for the answer.



























The answer is: it depends.

You might expect it to return false because the 3 items …

I have recently been working with the Donors Choose Open Data Set which happens to be in PostgreSQL. Easy enough to install and load the data in PostgreSQL, however as I live and breath MySQL, lets load the data into MySQL.

And here is where start our discussion, first some history.

SQL History

SQL – Structure Query Language is a well known common language for communicating with …

PostgreSQL Auto IDs
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

PostgreSQL’s approach to automatic numbering is as simple as Oracle but different than MySQL, and Microsoft SQL Server. For example, you have a two-step process with Oracle, PostgreSQL, MySQL, and Microsoft SQL Server. First, you create an Oracle table with the GENERATED AS IDENTITY clause, a PostgreSQL table with the SERIAL data type, a MySQL table with the AUTO_INCREMENT clause, and a Microsoft SQL Server table with the IDENTITY(1,1) clause. Then, you need to write an INSERT statement for Oracle, MySQL, or Microsoft SQL Server like:

  1. Oracle’s INSERT statement …

Django with time zone support and MySQL
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

This is yet another story of Django web-framework with time zone support and pain dealing with python datetimes and MySQL on the backend. In other words, offset-naive vs offset-aware datetimes.

Here is the first issue: tz-aware in what time …

Starting a new Rails project
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Since Ruby on Rails 4.2 has just been released, perhaps now is a good time to review creating a shiny new Rails project. It’s not often I get to create a new project from scratch, but it’s Christmas and I’ve got a bit of downtime — and an itch I’d like to scratch! So, let’s get started.

I’m aiming to build a wee project that keeps track of OmniFocus perspectives. I’ve noticed that people are sharing their perspectives as screenshots and descriptions, in tweets and blog posts. Wouldn’t it be …

osquery is neat
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Facebook recently made opensource, osquery. It gives you operating system data via SQL queries! Its very neat, and you can test this even on MacOSX (it works on that platform & Linux). It is by far the project with the most advanced functionality, linked here in this post.

I noticed that rather quickly, there was a PostgreSQL project, called pgosquery, based on Foreign Data Wrappers with a similar idea. (apparently it was written in …

+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Since this is my first blog I feel it's necessary to introduce myself. I'm Tim Callaghan, I work at Tokutek (makers of TokuDB and TokuMX), and I love benchmarking. While some of the content on this blog will certainly be about Tokutek technologies, I plan on exploring a wide variety of others as well. These are strictly my own personal views and opinions, and comments/feedback are always welcome. Lets get started...

A few weeks ago I …
