Percona Live MySQL & Expo Conference: GTID Replication slides

If you couldn’t have the chance to attend my session “GTID Replication – Implementation and Troubleshooting” at Percona Live MySQL & Expo Conference in Santa Clara April 13-16, 2015, the slides of my presentation are now available.
The talk was mainly about the new feature in MySQL 5.6 “GTID”, what is the concept, benefits, GTID replication implementation and troubleshooting and how to perform the migration from classic replication to GTID replication in both MySQL 5.6 and 5.7.
If you have any question, feel free to contact me

Speaking at MySQL Conference & Expo April 13-16 2015

In a few weeks, I’ll be speaking at MySQL Conference & Expo about the new major feature in MySQL 5.6, Global Transaction ID (GTID). I’ll explain what is GTID and how to implement a GTID Replication and troubleshoot most of the common issues that might be faced in GTID Replication.
Also, I’ll talk in brief about how to perform the migration from Classic to GTID replication in MySQL 5.6 and the online migration in MySQL 5.7 as well.
My talk is titled “GTID REPLICATION – IMPLEMENTATION AND TROUBLESHOOTING“, more information about my talk can be checked out here.
The conference will be held in …

Presenting at FOSDEM and Percona Live

Very short update from my side: I’ll be presenting at FOSDEM in Brussels (1-2 February 2014) and Percona Live MySQL Conference in Santa Clara (1-4 April 2014).

At FOSDEM I will present about Galera replication in real life which is concentrate around two use cases for Galera: adding new clusters to our sharded environment and migrating existing clusters into a new Galera cluster.

At Percona Live MySQL Conference I will present about our globally distributed storage layers. Next to our globally sharded environment we have built a new environment called ROAR (Read Often, Alter …

Percona Live London is already next Monday!

I’m currently wrapping up last things in the office to be prepared for my presentation about MySQL-Statsd at the Percona Live London conference next week. It will be a revised version of the talk I gave at the Percona Live Conference & Expo in Santa Clara, but this time it will be more focussed to the practical side and, obviously, the MySQL-Statsd daemon we open sourced recently, so if you missed that talk or think a follow up is needed you should definitely attend! Slides will also become immediately available after the talk.

I’m also looing forward to attend a lot of other talks, for instance The Shard Revisited: Tools and Techniques Used at Etsy and …

Percona Live London 2012 slides available

Many thanks to all those who attended my talk at the Percona Live London 2012 conference!
I did put the location in the last slide, but just in case you missed the last slide (or missed my talk) you can find them here:

I did receive a couple of questions afterwards (in the hallways of the conference) that made me realize that I forgot to clear up a couple of things.

First of all the essence of shifting the data ownership of a specific GID towards a specific datacenter and ensuring data consistency also means one Erlang process within that very same datacenter is the owner of that data. This does also mean this Erlang process is the only that can write to the data of this GID. Don’t worry: for every GID there should be a process that is the data owner and Erlang should be able to cope with the enormous scale here.

The Percona Live MySQL Conference 2012

Thank you very much if you attended my session at the Percona Live MySQL Conference!
I promised some people to share my slides, so I posted them on the page at Percona:
Spil Games: Outgrowing an internet startup (Percona Live MySQL Conference 2012) on SlideShare

My opinion of the conference is that it was amazing! The conference was very well organized, the atmosphere was great and I met so many great people that I had a tough time remembering all their names and companies. The contents of all talks were really well balanced and most of the ones I attended were very interesting.

The most interesting talk of the conference was the …

Speaking at Percona Live MySQL conference

Suitcase packed? Check!
Laptop? Check!
Presentation? Check!
I’m ready for my departure to San Francisco tomorrow morning!

I already mentioned before that I will be a speaker at the MySQL conference, but I think the session has moved since. It is now scheduled Thursday between 1:00 and 1:50 in ballrooom E. Be there if you want to know more about what Spil Games is doing!

I also determined what the most interesting talks are going to be for me and here are some of the highlights:
One to Many: The Story of Sharding at Box (Wed 1:00 – 1:50pm)
Sounds very interesting to see how different their story is from the one at Spil Games.

MySQL 5.5 upgrade blues (part two)

Shortly after the MySQL 5.5 upgrade the whole cluster was upgraded with extra ram. This was a nice test to see how differently 5.1 and 5.5 behave when they A) innodb bufferpool is too small and B) when the innodb bufferpool has enough room to fit everything in memory.

The MySQL 5.5 had just the same pattern in terms of disk utilization as the other nodes before (around 30% to 40%) and after the upgrade (4% to 5%), so not much difference at all. However the number of free pages within the bufferpool is significantly lower (about 10%) than on the other nodes. This definitely needs some further investigation.

Apart from that the machine is stable and it seems we will proceed with the upgrade on the whole cluster soon.

A sidenote: I’m happy to announce that I was selected as a speaker at the Percona Live MySQL Conference & Expo in San Francisco, April 2012. I’ll be talking about Spil Games (the company I work for) and …
