One of our senior MySQL DBAs, Mike Hamrick, wasn’t feeling well this week and so stayed home from the office.  Instead of actually resting, produced this video about reading top output!  I leave it to you all to watch and learn from our local tool tip pro.

And, feel better Mike!

    Openworld 2010, despite the supposedly lagging economy, had record attendance again this year.  No doubt this was the result of Oracle acquiring something like fourteen companies since last year, including Sun in 2009.  The crowds were thick, divided about evenly between geeks in badly-fitting vendor t-shirts and slick sales-side hustlers with dress pants and shiny shoes.  I landed somewhere in the middle of the two (badly-fitting dress shirt, comfortable jeans and loafers), proudly sporting a long dangling codpiece of ribbons from my attendee badge:

    Learnings from the Philippines
    +0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

    Learned a few things during my trip to the Philippines this time. Another country that amazes me. For the first time in history, Philippines attracted more foreign direct investments (FDI) than Malaysia, in 2010 (see: Malaysia’s FDI plunge).

    Mobiles

    There are a lot of people here using prepaid phones as opposed to postpaid phones. This is because the requirements of getting a postpaid account is quite tough (you need bank documents, etc. before they give you an account).

    Many people carry more than one phone (or have more than one SIM). Smartphones face an uphill battle – they cost too much and there is generally no operator subsidy because everyone prefers prepaid accounts. It makes economic sense to have more than one SIM,

    Introducing the Bluegecko MySQL Training AMI
    +0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

    I created the Bluegecko MySQL training AMI as a MySQL sandbox that folks could use to learn things about MySQL. I wanted the AMI to have MySQL 5.0, and a large collection of tools — for both tinkering and visualizing what is happening inside MySQL and on the system in general.

    I chose to host the AMI on a small instance since they’re cheap to operate, which means you can fire up 3-4 of them to try out a replication scheme without feeling guilty. It runs CentOS 5.4 and MySQL 5.0.77 from the CentOS repository.

    One of the goals I had for the training AMI was for it to be easy to visually inspect what is going on inside of MySQL and the system at large. To that end I’ve installed Cacti, a graphing and visualization tool, and equipped it with templates

    MySQL University: InnoDB File Formats and Source Code Structure
    Employee +0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

    This Thursday (October 1st, 14:00 UTC), Calvin Sun will give a session on InnoDB Internals: InnoDB File Formats and Source Code Structure. The InnoDB storage engine provides transactions, row-level locking, and automatic crash recovery. Its on-disk files play a pivotal role for those key features. This presentation describes how on-disk files are structured, how compressed tables are organized, and how long variable-length columns are stored. As we develop new features, it is inevitable for file format changes. We will explain how the new file format management works in the InnoDB Plugin.This talk also covers InnoDB source code

    SQL for youngsters
    +1 Vote Up -0Vote Down
    Yesterday was a good vacation day at my sister's house. As usual with me, I don't seem able to have a completely computer-free day. I did some work tasks, and then turned my attention to my sister's network problems. She has a Mac, which is wired, and several Windows laptops. The windows laptops weren't able to connect to the Verizon-supplied DSL modem and router in-one. It was set up for WEP (64-bit). I tried numerous times to get the windows laptops working and found finally that that using 128-bit encryption WEP solved the problem. Except for one computer. It was an old Dell laptop with Windows. She wants this to be her daughter's (my 11 year-old niece) computer. This laptop was running extremely slow and could not connect to the Verizon router, even when not encrypted. This particular laptop also uses a PCI Linksys wireless card, so perhaps it's out of date enough to not work with the Verizon router.   [Read more...]

    Good news Kettle fans!

    Our community is bound to become a bit larger as a whole group of students (38) at the Katholieke Hogeschool Mechelen (Batchelor level) will receive a one day workshop with Pentaho Data Integration (Kettle).  This workshop will take place in early November, most likely the 4th.

    It’s interesting to see that during that day we’ll be able to go through most of the work involved in reading and staging the data, data cleansing and a few slowly changing dimensions with a fact table.  On top of that we’ll explain how to use Pentaho Data Integration in that setting.  When time permits we’ll show how to set up a metadata model on top of that data to create reports on it.  On top of that the students will get an idea about what exactly

    Free and Open Source Software: Use and Production by the Brazilian Government

    First up, I want to say, I’m truly impressed with Brazil. One day I will visit this amazing place, and spread the good word of open source with projects that are close to my heart: MySQL, OpenOffice.org, Fedora, and in due time, a lot more. This is a live-blog, from a most interesting talk, at JavaOne 2008. As I wrote on Twitter, “Brazil, simply impresses me. Their use of open source in government, makes me think that the rest of the world has a lot to learn from them”.
