Employee_Team +0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

The MySQL server supports a variety of client connection methods. To summarize: you have TCP/IP (v4 and v6) on all OSes (with or without TLS/SSL encryption), Unix Domain Sockets on Unix/Linux, and Named Pipes and/or Shared Memory on Windows.

Each of these connection methods has its own set of pros and cons: speed, security, portability, and ease-of-use.…

Employee_Team +2 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Compiling MySQL Workbench yourself is quite a common task for Linux users, even though the application is available precompiled for certain platforms ready from our download page and available in our yum and apt repositories. In this blog post we show you how to compile it on Windows.

But you should be an experienced Visual Studio user. It’s a complicated task and not a good start for a beginner. The key problem when building on Windows is that we cannot ship any …

Improving the Performance of MySQL on Windows
Employee_Team +2 Vote Up -0Vote Down

In this blog entry I’d like to describe how you might be able to improve how MySQL performs on Windows by ensuring that you take advantage of a Windows specific configuration setting.

For connections to localhost, MySQL programs attempt to connect to the local server by using a Unix socket file, which has some performance advantages over a TCP/IP connection. Windows does not support Unix sockets, however, and hence does not benefit from this optimisation.

However, the use of …
