Some thoughts on recent events (repost)
+1 Vote Up -1Vote Down

[something happened to this post and I am reposting it]
It was suggested by Monty that the posts I've made about MariaDB are for publicity. This simply isn't true. I would have much preferred a different outcome in my interactions with MariaDB. I figured that they would end up giving me a hard time, and I'd be stubborn and we'd both hate each other for as long as I could keep from leaving. A quick separation actually seems much better in such context. Regardless, I would have preferred to speak amicably to the MariaDB Corporation about switching the license back, or at least moving to the new license at the time of the notification of the community, ie, changing the license so …

Creating a MariaDB MaxScale router module
+1 Vote Up -1Vote Down

I wanted to do some tests with MariaDB MaxScale and realized that the two existing routers (beyond the binlog router that is, which is a bit special) didn't do what I wanted them to do. What I was looking for was a simple round-robin feature and none of readconnroute nor readwritesplit could be configured to do this, they are just too smart for my simple experiment.

Why would you want a round-robin router then? Well, one use case is when you are INSERTing a lot of data and you just want to persist it. You don't have the use case where you have to SELECT data from all servers, but in the case you need it, you just select from all …

Thoughts on MaxScale new license
+3 Vote Up -0Vote Down

MaxScale has been open source until now, just like all MariaDB projects. But the 2.0 version is released under a new license called BSL, which basically makes the covered work non-free until the Change Date (in this case 2019-01-01), when the license will be converted to GPL.

Looks like open source friendly, after all. The license will be GPL, just be patient. And the code is available. Right?

No. Cmpletely wrong. For plenty of reasons.

Some reasons

It is a lock-in. No matter how many times …

Fired for supporting open source
+2 Vote Up -0Vote Down

I have been fired for speaking out about the GPL and MariaDB actions that have caused great harm to our ecosystem.

It has been pointed out that I have a non-compete agreement. None of my tools compete with MariaDB and I have no non-public knowledge of MariaDB technology. GPLScale remains free software under the GNU GPL license and it is my right to fork a github repo. I am not paid to work on GPLScale and I don't intend to get paid to maintain it by anyone. All my projects are labors of love.


Who wants to hire me? I'm dedicated, honest, open, and I have integrity. I'm willing to risk everything for what I believe in.

Emulating Sequences in MySQL and MariaDB
+1 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Sequences are objects defined by the SQL standard that are used to create monotonically increasing sequences of numeric values. Whenever nextval is called on a sequence object, it generates and returns the next number in the sequence. For MySQL and MariaDB users, this might sound similar to MySQL’s AUTO_INCREMENT columns, but there are some differences: Sequences are defined by the ... Read More

Basically Shitty License
+2 Vote Up -1Vote Down

Monty announced that he has created a new non-open source license called the "Business Source License" or BSL.  I think it should have a different name...

You see, Monty has fundamentally crafted a straw man to stand in for the general Open Source model by applying his experience in the dog-eat-dog world of forked software, in particular, the "ecosystem" of MySQL.  The software that MariaDB draws the majority of their income from is MariaDB, which is a fork of MySQL.  If you don't know the history, well, you see, SUN bought MySQL, Oracle bought Sun, and Monty, in an environment of nearly Biblical levels of FUD, forked MySQL into MariaDB (both products are …

What’s next
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

I received an overwhelming number of comments when I said I was leaving MariaDB Corporation. Thank you – it is really nice to be appreciated.

I haven’t left the MySQL ecosystem. In fact, I’ve joined Percona as their Chief Evangelist in the CTO Office, and I’m going to focus on the MySQL/Percona Server/MariaDB Server ecosystem, while also looking at MongoDB and other solutions that are good for Percona customers. Thanks again for the overwhelming response on the various social media channels, and via emails, calls, etc.

Here’s to a great time at …

Changing of the guard
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

I posted a message to the internal mailing lists at MariaDB Corporation. I have departed (I resigned) the company, but definitely not the community. Thank you all for the privilege of serving the large MariaDB Server community of users, all 12 million+ of you. See you on the mailing lists, IRC, and the developer meetings.

The Japanese have a saying, “leave when the cherry blossoms are full”.

I’ve been one of the earliest employees of this post-merge company, and was on the founding team of the …

Parallel Replication with TokuDB & MariaDB 10.1
+1 Vote Up -0Vote Down

I) What is parallel replication?

Parallel replication is a nice feature introduced in MariaDB 10.0, and which allows to run in parallel some queries on a slave. Basically, by default (the conservative mode), it runs in parallel transactions that couldn’t have any conflict. Note you have to enable GTID to use this feature.

Starting with MariaDB 10.1.3 new parallel modes have been introduced : optimistic & aggressive mode. Those modes try to …
