Percona Live MySQL Conference and Expo 2014: Things I’m looking forward to
+2 Vote Up -0Vote Down

The Percona Live MySQL Conference and Expo 2014 is just two months away. I’m very excited about this year’s event which continues our tradition of open technical discussions and inviting all parties to the table.

We have a great amount of technical talks from Oracle – I’m especially excited about future-focused talks shedding some light about what to expect in MySQL 5.7 and beyond. This content is best covered by developers actually designing the system and writing the code. We also have great coverage of MySQL

Mark Cuban is no fool. A tech billionaire, the no-nonsense owner of the Dallas Mavericks is just the sort of person you'd expect to value software patents. So the title of his blog post this Tuesday, "I hope Yahoo crushes Facebook in its patent suit," may not look out of place to you.

A Glance at MySQL MHA
+1 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Yoshinori Matsunobu sparked some interest recently when he posted about his MySQL MHA HA solution, and there has been some discussion of it internally at Yahoo compared with the standard we currently have.  

Full disclosure:  I haven’t read every bit of the documentation or tried it out yet, so I apologize in advance to Yoshinori if I mistakenly represent his hard work. 

I see a lot of great ideas in Yoshinori’s release, it seems to focus on two main problems:

  • A process to monitor an active master and perform a failover when it fails
  • The bit that finds the most “caught-up” slave and distributes relay log contents

    Playing around with Galera 0.8pre
    +1 Vote Up -0Vote Down

    Currently I’m loading 100 TPCC warehouses in a 2-node galera cluster that I got up and running in maybe 5 minutes.  Kudos to the Codership guys for making it super easy to download a single tgz and get evaluating quickly.

    Galera, for those not in the know, is a “cluster of mysql instances”.  Unlike MySQL Cluster (http://www.mysql.com/products/cluster/), which is really just a storage engine of clustered data storage nodes.  Galera is hacked into both the main MySQL engine and Innodb (which is the only storage engine it supports).  Galera is fully synchronous, so commits on any MySQL node are applied everywhere in the cluster, at commit (and before the client can proceed).  Writes are actually scalable in Galera, to a point, by adding more data nodes because the replication between nodes is RBR, hence each data node doesn’t have to assume the CPU expense of processing the SQL
