PBXT 1.5.02 Beta adds 2nd Level Cache
+8 Vote Up -0Vote Down

As many probably already know, PBXT is the first MySQL Storage Engine to use a log-based architecture. Log-based means that data that would normally first be written to the transaction log, and then to the database tables, is just written to the log, and the log becomes part of the database.

This result is that data is only written once, and is always written sequentially. The advantage when writing is obvious, but there is a down side (as always). The data is written to the disk in write order, which is seldom the order in which the data is retrieved. So this results in a lot of random reads to the disk when accessing the data later.

PBXT 1.0.09 RC3 implements XA and online backup
+7 Vote Up -0Vote Down

I have just released PBXT 1.0.09 RC3. Besides bug fixes (details in the release notes), this version includes 2 Beta features:

  • XA/2-Phase Commit support
  • Native online backup Driver

XA support has been around MySQL for quite a while, and we all know of it usefulness, for example when sharding. So I was surprised to find a bug in the XA recovery: Bug #47134. Contrary to what is reported, the crash can also occur when using XA with just the default engines installed, …

PBXT 1.0.08 RC2 Released!
+6 Vote Up -0Vote Down

The second Release Candidate of PBXT, version 1.0.08, has just been released.

As I have mentioned in my previous blogs (here and here), I did a lot to improve performance for this version.

At the same time I am confident that this release is stable as we now have a large number of tests, including functionality, concurrency and crash recovery. But even more important, the number of users of PBXT has increased significantly since the last …

PBXT goes RC!
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

With all the booha about MySQL not being ready for GA, it makes me almost afraid to announce, ahem, ... and PBXT is, ehr, RC.

It has been just over a year now since I started developing the fully durable version of PBXT. Before that, PBXT was Beta. After that, it was Alpha again.

Now we have 2 solid Beta versions behind us, Vladimir and I have fixed all known bugs for this version, including quite a number of foreign key bugs. We have all 259 mysql-test-run tests that were adapted for PBXT (and a bunch of our own) running through without any errors on 4 platforms: Mac OS X, Linux …

PBXT 1.0.06 Beta Released

On friday we released the second Beta version of PBXT. PBXT is a transactional storage engine for MySQL 5.1 and 6.0. You can find out more about the engine at www.primebase.org.

PBXT is pluggable, so it can be built separately from the MySQL tree, and loaded dynamically at runtime using the LOAD PLUGIN statement.

You can download PBXT from here. A "quick guide" to building and installing the plugin is provided. I have also updated the documentation for this version.

There are no major new features in this …

New version and a new home for PBXT!
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

I have just released the first fully durable version of PBXT. Because of the amount of new code I have reverted PBXT to Alpha status. This version, 1.0-alpha, can be downloaded from: http://www.primebase.org/download.

Oh, which reminds me: PBXT now has a new home at http://www.primebase.org, so take a look around! I have actually found a bit of time to write some documentation. Right now the documentation describes building, installation, and the PBXT …
