Does Python MySQLdb Make You Wait?
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Recently while writing a data loading application for a customer, we’ve come into a problematic situation with the Python MySQLdb module that can be installed with base RHEL repository or DVD. As a little background, this application uses an HA architecture where a Virtual IP can be assigned to different servers during a failover scenario. However, during failover, as long as the VIPs are not re-assigned, the application could hang waiting for query response. A quick strace reveals something like:

sendto(5, "W\0\0\0\3SELECT * FROM dataloader.bo"..., 91, 0, NULL, 0) = 91
recvfrom(5,

Further test reveals that this problem will not timeout …

High-Availability at MySQL Central
Employee_Team +3 Vote Up -0Vote Down

This year’s MySQL Central at Oracle Open World was an exhilarating experience. In contrast to the previous year’s MySQL Connect events, MySQL have now got their own Central at the main Oracle Open World. In the previous years, we were always short on time and trying to get a lot of sessions into just two days was just to much. This time I could both present sessions, attend sessions by other users, and also to talk to people in the MySQL community: something that I really enjoy and also find very valuable to see where we should be heading.

This year, the “MySQL Fabric Team” representation on MySQL Central was me and …

MySQL Connector/Python 2.0.1 an 1.2.3 on PyPI
Employee +0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Both MySQL Connector/Python 2.0.1 and 1.2.3 are now available through the Python Package Index or PyPI. Leaving the previous version available is probably a good idea as you can always go back if needed.

Note that we still have no files hosted at PyPI.

Relocated Connector/Python on GitHub
Employee +0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

We have relocated the MySQL Connector/Python repository on GitHub to the following location:

https://github.com/mysql/mysql-connector-python

The old location will redirect to the above URL.

No, we have not updated the README.txt or made something special for GitHub. I personally don’t mind what is currently showing on GitHub: it is readable, and it is correct. I still hope GitHub will make it easier to show something else, like asking which document to display and as what format.
