A/UX, NeXTSTEP, & OS X
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

One thing that gets tedious in the IT community and Oracle community is the penchant for Windows only solutions. While Microsoft does an excellent job in certain domains, I remain a loyal Apple customer. By the way, you can install Oracle Client software on Mac OS X and run SQL Developer against any Oracle Database server. You can even run MySQL Workbench and MySQL server natively on the Mac OS X platform, which creates a robust development platform …

MySQL Enterprise Backup 3.10: Teasing compression.
Employee +0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Ok, so I wanted to look into the new compression options of MEB 3.10.

And I would like to share my tests with you. Remember, they’re just this, tests, so please feel free to copy n paste and obtain your own results and conclusions, and should I say it, baselines, in order to compare future behaviour, on your own system.

An Oracle Linux 6.3 virtual machine with 3Gb RAM, 2 virtual threads, on a 1x quad core, windows laptop. Not pretty, but hey.

So, these tests are solely about backup. I’ll do restore when I get some *more* time.

 

First up, lets compare like with like, i.e. MEB …

Mac Mini to the rescue
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

In teaching, I had a problem because my students have different base operating systems, like Windows 7, Windows 8, Linux, and Mac OS X. I needed a teaching and lecture platform that would let me teach it all (not to mention support their environments). That meant it had to virtualize any of the following with a portable device:

  • Windows 7 or 8 hosting natively an Oracle Database 11g XE, 11g, or 12c and MySQL Database 5.6
  • Windows 7 or 8 hosting a Fedora or Oracle Unbreakable Linux VM (3 or 4 GB) with Oracle Database 11g XE, …

Oracle Linux 6.5, MySQL 5.5, 5.6 & 5.7
Employee +1 Vote Up -0Vote Down

So how do you get MySQL 5.5, 5.6, or 5.7 on the latest Oracle Linux? Morgan had a great post on Installing MySQL 5.7 DMR3 with the official yum repos. This blog is about uprading from Oracle Linux 6.4 to 6.5 and getting a recent version of MySQL installed.

The first step, if you are running Oracle Linux 6.4, is to type yum install to upgrade to 6.5. Be sure to read the release notes and that you are pointing to the …

Employee +3 Vote Up -0Vote Down

So, after installing Workbench 6.0.7 on my pc, and playing around with the MySQL Utilities that are included, I thought I’d do similar to what others have done (Thanks Tony D.) and share my experience on how I’ve used them. If you haven’t installed Workbench before, you might want to check your platform first: …

OL 4 MySQL: Extending my VM’s root f/s online
Employee +0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Ok, so after all the things that have been announced @MySQLConnect, I’ve got to play around with them. First stop: space (no.. not ‘the final frontier’).

I need more space on my f/s to get installing. I was a bit of a scrooge when I created my Oracle Linux virtual machine, so now I’m paying the price.

Filesystem            Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/mapper/vg_ol63uek01-LogVol01
                      7.1G  5.7G  1.1G  85% /

As I’m using Virtual Box, I’ve added a new SATA Controller vmdk of 10G, SATA Port 1 and then start it up.

fdisk -l

Will be able to identify the new & …
