Where is the Language Data?
+1 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Image if you will,  a geographic database of locations and the language/s spoken there with keys to a dictionary of common words with keys the same word in all other languages.   And again image this database was like a wiki, so it could crowd sourced.  You could put in your own home and “English spoken here”.  And maybe this database would have keys to the words spoken in each language.

If there was an API for this database you could do simple application language translations.  Programs would not need to code tables for translations.  The “PUSH” or “OK” button would just have a key to that word.  A web app …

We had really great webinar on Replicating to/from Oracle earliest this month, and you can view the recording of that Webinar here.

A good sign of how great a Webinar was is the questions that come afterwards, and we didn’t get through them all. so here are all the questions and answers for the entire webinar.

Q: What is the overhead of Replicator on source database with asynchronous CDC?

A: With asynchronous operation there is no substantial CPU overhead (as with synchronous), but the amount of generated …

Revisiting ZFS and MySQL
+1 Vote Up -0Vote Down

While at Percona Live this year I was reminded about ZFS and running MySQL on top of a ZFS-based storage platform.

Now I’m a big fan of ZFS (although sadly I don’t get to use it as much as I used to after I shutdown my home server farm), and I did a lot of different testing back while at MySQL to ensure that MySQL, InnoDB and ZFS worked correctly together.

Of course today we have a completely new range of ZFS compatible environments, not least of which are FreeBSD and ZFS on Linux, I think it’s time to revisit some of my original advice on using this combination.

Unfortunately the …

MySQL Switch project
+4 Vote Up -1Vote Down

As an old firewall developer, I’m dreaming of a MySQL Switch (MySwitch).

You can modify an application to change the database destination. Often the application has to be restarted creating down time. Most servers have many applications connected to them. To make a switch to a Slave server everything has to happen together. Some applications start up MUCH slower than others creating more down time.

The purpose of this project is to take control of application/s connections to MySQL servers . I propose using Network Address Translation (NAT) as a “MySQL Switch” …

Percona Live – MySQL Conference
+1 Vote Up -0Vote Down

This is my takeaway from this years MySQL conference in San Francisco.

The community believes Oracle has been a good steward of MySQL and delivered some great code in 5.6. Studies from 451 Research show MySQL is on the decline and a lot of this has to do with the ownership my Oracle and growth of no-SQL.

Big data, Cloud, hadoop and MongoDB are still the on the lips of the “JSON …

Percona Live 2013, MySQL, Continuent and an ever-healthy Ecosystem
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

I’m sitting here in the lounge at SFO thinking back on the last week, the majority of which has been spent meeting my new workmates and attending the Percona MySQL conference.

For me it has been as much of a family reunion as it has been about seeing the wonderful things going on in MySQL.

Having joined Continuent last month after an ‘absence’ in NoSQL land of almost 2.5 years, joining the MySQL community again just felt like coming home after a long absence. And that’s no bad thing. On a very personal level it was great to see so many of my old …

Making a MySQL slave with ZERO downtime
+2 Vote Up -0Vote Down

It’s about time for this year’s MySQL (Percona) conference in San Francisco.  I haven’t written anything in some time.  So, I thought I’d write something we can talk about should you meet me.

You need to make a slave of your MySQL server.

What if, you’re bonus was tied to database up time or maybe the systems group will not grant you any down time?  You’re ONE Master DB server is so big, coping tables takes hours. Even an ‘scp’ sync takes too long.  99.999% uptime is hard to achieve.

Percona and their tools are your friend… mostly. Xtrabackup will create a ready to use copy of all your …
