Developing with MySQL and NoSQL
Employee_Team +1 Vote Up -0Vote Down

MySQL adopts a very different approach to 'NoSQL' than other databases. With the memcached plugin, MySQL provides the speed and high availability benefits of a standard 'NoSQL' database solution, while mitigating many of the drawbacks to this approach.

A traditional memcached application bypasses the SQL layer entirely, and stores all its data in memory. This makes data access extremely fast, but there is a risk that the data will disappear in the event of a system problem. 

The MySQL memcached plugin for InnoDB also bypasses the SQL and optimization layers, resulting in excellent performance. It goes further, writing key-value data directly to  InnoDB tables. The result is fast data access while retaining the advantages provided by the existing relational database infrastructure, such as the ability to run complex queries with SQL, maintain data

Beginning on the MySQL Command Line
Employee_Team +0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

If you are starting out on the MySQL command line client, you might be interested in the following information.

When you use the MySQL command line client, it is often useful to log the commands you enter and the response you receive back from the MySQL server. The MySQL 'tee' command allows you to do this very simply and conveniently. Just enter 'tee' followed by the path to the file you want to log the session to (normally referred to as the 'tee' file). From that point on, all your session activity is logged to that file. To cancel tee file logging, just execute 'notee'.
