The Road to MySQL 5.6: Default Options
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down
When you're testing out a new version of MySQL in a non-production environment there is a temptation to go wild and turn on all kinds of new features.  Especially if you're reading the changelogs or the manual and scanning through options.  You want to start with the most reasonable set of defaults, right?  Maybe you're even doing benchmarks to optimize performance using all the new bells and whistles.

Resist the temptation!  If your goal is to upgrade your production environment then what you really want is to isolate changes.  You want to preform the upgrade with as little to no impact as possible.  Then you can start turning on features or making changes one-by-one.

Why?  Anytime you're doing a major upgrade to something as fundamental as your core RDBMS, there are many ways things can go wrong.  Performance

Use of loops in MySQL stored procedures

Loops -> Repetitive tasks

3 types of loops in MySQL stored program:
- Simple loop using LOOP and END LOOP clauses
- WHILE and END WHILE clauses that runs while a condition is true
- REPEAT  and UNTIL clauses that runs until a condition is true



Termination of loop -> LEAVE statement.

I will demonstrate the use of loops the simple loop way.

Simple counter from 1 to 10:

Using conditional expressions inside MySQL Stored Procedure
+1 Vote Up -1Vote Down
Sometimes there is need to use conditional expression inside stored procedure to control the flow of execution.
We can use IF or CASE statements for this.


Below is a stored procedure to check the performance of a student based on its score.
Store the below stored procedure in a file called get_performance.sql

DELIMITER $$

DROP PROCEDURE IF EXISTS get_performance$$

CREATE PROCEDURE get_performance
    (score NUMERIC(8, 2),
    OUT result VARCHAR(11))

How to use and get output arguments in stored procedure using OUT parameter mode?
+1 Vote Up -0Vote Down
It is sometimes required to get the result of a stored procedure in a variable which can be used later or to output the result.

To do so, we can use the "OUT" parameter mode while defining stored procedures.

In the below section, we will be writing a stored procedure to get the square root of a number returned in an output variable provided by us.



Stored Procedure Definition:

Store the below stored procedure in a file named my_sqrt.sql and save it.

DELIMITER $$

DROP PROCEDURE IF EXISTS my_sqrt$$

Which Compression Tool Should I Use for my Database Backups? (Part I: Compression)
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

This week we are talking about size, which is a subject that should matter to any system administrator in charge of the backup system of any project, and in particular database backups.

I sometimes get questions about what should be the best compression tool to apply during a particular backup system: gzip? bzip2? any other?

The testing environment

In order to test several formats and tools, I created a .csv file (comma-separated values) that was 3,700,635,579 bytes in size by transforming a recent dump of all the OpenStreetMap nodes of the European portion of Spain. It had a total of 46,741,126 rows and looked like this:

Handling Error Messages and Warnings with MySQL
Employee_Team +1 Vote Up -0Vote Down

To ensure that your MySQL Database works as efficiently as possible, it is important to know how to handle error messages and warnings.

Error messages have three components:

  • A MySQL-specific error code, such as 1146
  • A SQLSTATE error code. These codes are defined by standard SQL and the ODBC standard.
  • A text message that describes the problem

MySQL Server generates a warning when it is not fully able to comply with a request or when an action has possibly unintended side effects. You can display these warnings with the SHOW WARNINGS statement.

To learn about handling error messages and warnings along with other developer topics, consider taking the

MariaDB and Stored Procedures: errata & repository
+1 Vote Up -0Vote Down

In the article How MariaDB makes Stored Procedures usable I explained how to use the MariaDB CONNECT Storage Engine to workaround Stored Procedures limitations. Please read that article, if you didn’t, for details.

Since the technique to workaround such limitations is verbose and error-proof, I also proposed a procedure which makes it easy and convenient. Even thought this is a simple country blog, I have immediately received positive feedback after that article. But then, people started to write me: “Hey, doesn’t work!”. The reason is… MariaDB/MySQL bugs. While investigating these problems, I was able to report

How MariaDB makes Stored Procedures usable
+4 Vote Up -0Vote Down

I already wrote how MariaDB makes the debug of stored procedures much easier via the SQL Error Log. But I recently found out that MariaDB provides a usable workaround for some big limitations of their procedural SQL.

First, SELECT is not the only SQL statement which returns a resultset. Other examples are DELETE RETURNING, CALL, SHOW, EXPLAIN and administrative commands like ANALYZE TABLE or CHECK TABLE. But these commands cannot be used in place of SELECT in the following contexts:

  • Subqueries, derived tables, JOINs,
