Team Sphinx to the MySQL User Conference!
+1 Vote Up -0Vote Down
MySQL is the world’s most popular open source database. Sphinx allows MySQL users to search text (and more) at scale, without choking-out their favorite database. It’s a match made in the big data heavens. So, it shouldn’t be a surprise that this year, like many years before, we’ll be heading to the Percona Live MySQL [...]

Late feedback
Employee_Team +0 Vote Up -0Vote Down


MySQL Community team asked me to write about Devconf 2013 few months ago. Conference was in June, 2013, but I remembered about this my promise only now: month later after my participating in MySQL Connect and Expert Troubleshooting seminar (change country to United Kingdom if you see blank page). I think it is too late for the feedback, but I still have few thoughts which I want to record.

DevConf (former PHPConf) always was a place where I tried new topics. At first, because I know audience there very well and they will be bored if I repeat a story which I was telling

My agenda for MySQL NoSQL Cloud 2013
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down
On October 15 and 16 I'll take the ferry to be at the MySQL NoSQL Cloud conference in Buenos Aires, and the schedule looks really nice so far. I think it's a great opportunity for people in this region to get up to date with what's going on in the MySQL ecosystem, and to have good discussions with members of the community that aren't usually around here. I still haven't decided my complete agenda, as in some cases it's difficult to pick one track and miss the other one, but for now, here are some highlighted sessions I'm definitely attending: Related posts:

    Creating custom rules in MySQL Enterprise Monitor
    Employee +3 Vote Up -0Vote Down

    Quite some time ago, I published scripts to implement password policies for MySQL, and promised to show how to expose violations of that policy via MySQL Enterprise Monitor (MEM).  That stalled somewhat with other objectives, but I want to revisit it now that MEM 3.0 is GA.  If you haven’t tried MEM 3.0 yet, consider doing so – it’s quick and easy to set up.

    Many people don’t realize that MEM can be extended to monitor things beyond MySQL Server health, including visibility into application state as

    Speaking at Percona University Sept 12th
    +1 Vote Up -0Vote Down

    I’ll be joining Percona for a free day of MySQL education and insight at their upcoming Percona University Washington DC event on September 12th. My topic is accessing MySQL from Google’s Go programming language. I’ve learned a lot about this over the past year or so, and hopefully I can help you get a quick-start.

    If you’re not familiar with Go, it’s the darling of the Hacker News crowd these days. Anything with “Go” in its title gets to the front page for at least a little while! Go is a great systems programming language. It’s safe to say I’ve fallen in love with it, and it’s now my favorite programming language of all those

    Quantifying Abnormal Behavior in System Metrics

    Last week to submit for MySQL Connect!
    Employee +4 Vote Up -0Vote Down

    The Call for Papers for MySQL Connect 2013 will close this Friday.  This is the premier Oracle-sponsored MySQL conference, and a great opportunity for community users and customers alike to connect with Oracle staff from engineering, support, consulting and other organizations, as well as community partners and peers.  Maybe you’d like to talk about your experiences integrating one of the new MySQL 5.6 features.  Or maybe you’d like to share best practices you’ve developed for integrating with Hadoop.  Perhaps you’ve extended MySQL and want to tell the community about it.  Take advantage of this opportunity and submit your proposal this week!

    Adaptive Fault Detection food fight
    +1 Vote Up -0Vote Down

    I was a guest on the Food Fight Show last week, along with a bevy of really smart people asking and answering tough questions on fault detection. We didn’t talk a lot about MySQL, but given that VividCortex is focusing on MySQL initially, pretty much all of my experience with zero-threshold, zero-configuration fault detection is MySQL-based.

    It’s a fun conversation with a lot of insights into the industry, what’s wrong with current monitoring tools, and where monitoring is going. Also, it’s sold out now, but Monitorama is a conference you might be interested in if you’re doing monitoring (and who isn’t?)

    Here is a collection of upcoming events that are interesting to me as a MySQL user (in some cases because I’m speaking). I think some of them are must-see events.

    Sessions I’d like to see at Percona Live in April
    +4 Vote Up -0Vote Down

    I’m really looking forward to this year’s Percona Live MySQL Conference. This is always THE event of the year for me in the MySQL conference circuit. It’s also the first year I haven’t been a speaker! I’ve been a speaker since 2007 but this year things were too uncertain for me to submit a proposal in time.

    As usual, the real highlight of the conference is seeing and talking to everyone. Technical sessions are also great, but honestly I can usually study up on technical things without going to a conference. However, nothing can replace the benefit of meeting all the dedicated MySQL community members in the hallways and at meals, and talking to MySQL-related businesses in the expo hall. Year after year, this conference has been what makes things happen:

    A weekend in Brussels: FOSDEM 2013!
    Employee +1 Vote Up -0Vote Down
    I had the pleasure to actively participate in the MySQL & Friends Devroom at FOSDEM. Met old acquaintances and made new ones. I even got the chance to speak for roughly 30 minutes... And the room was packed. On top of that I also did some "booth duty", which is the same to say that I spent sometime at the Oracle's stand (together with Sveta, Lars and Lenka), where I took the opportunity to reach out to people. It was my first time at FOSDEM, and I was much impressed by the large amount of people and by the different number of brands and open source companies represented. A big thank you to Frederic, who organized the devroom event. Since I am sure he had some help, a big thank you to everyone who helped Frederic as well. It was great to be there and discuss MySQL (replication) with a lot of different people!
    Get Me Some Query Logs!
    +1 Vote Up -0Vote Down

    One of my favorite tools in the Percona Toolkit is pt-query-digest.  This tool is indispensable for identifying your top SQL queries, and analyzing which queries are accounting for your database load.

    But the report you get from pt-query-digest is only as good as the log of queries you give it as input.  You need a large enough sample of query logs, collected over a period of time when you have representative traffic on your database.

    You also need the log to include all the queries, not just those that take more than N seconds.  The reason is that some queries are individually quick, and would not be logged if you set the long_query_time

    Are You Part of OurSQL Events?
    +2 Vote Up -0Vote Down

    OurSQL, the MySQL Database Community Podcast, lists events, conferences and training that are relevant to MySQLers around the world. Gerry and Sheeri get the information for events/conferences/training from Planet MySQL and Oracle, SkySQL and Percona websites. Often, webinars are posted to Planet MySQL a week or 2 before they happen, which is not enough lead time for the podcast. We usually record on Tuesdays and publish on Fridays, with the understanding that not everyone listens to the podcast on Friday. So on the podcast, we talk about events that are at least 1 week from publication date. For example, we are recording today (Tue 20 Nov) for a podcast that will be published Friday (23 Nov). We will talk about events, conferences and training that will happen Sunday, December 2nd or later.
