I’ve presented at two different venues about HandlerSocket recently and the number one question that always arises is:
Considering how fast and awesome HandlerSocket is, it’s not seeing as rapid adoption as some might expect. I theorize that there are five reasons for this:
Up until the beginning of the year, HandlerSocket had a couple of bugs that a lot of people considered deal-breakers, and it’s not widely known that these issues have been fixed.
HandlerSocket has really generated a lot of interest because of the dual promises of ease-of-use and blazing-fast performance. The performance comes from eliminating CPU consumption. Akira Higuchi’s HandlerSocket presentation from a couple of months back had some really good profile results for libmysql versus libhsclient (starting at slide 15). Somebody in the audience at Percona Live asked about the profile results when using prepared statements and I’m just getting around to publishing the numbers now; I’ll reproduce the original numbers here, for reference:

Several weeks ago at Percona Live 2011, I presented on HandlerSocket. Due to time constraints, I had to omit some more in-depth discussions in favor of being able to present a broad overview. One of those discussions was about how, exactly, HandlerSocket does not play nicely with auto increment columns. So I wanted to take the time here to show how they behave together versus how we might expect.
Let’s take, for example, a standard setup using a standard SQL_MODE (not using anything like[Read more...]
On March 29th, I’ll be giving a webinar whose title is “Understanding HandlerSocket – A NoSQL PlugIn For MySQL”. This is a continuation and extension of the talk I gave during the Percona Live Event in San Francisco back in February. We’ll ask, and answer, the following questions:
The title says it all. If you don’t know what HandlerSocket is or why you would want to use it you need to reads Yoshinori Matsunobu’s blog post.
Lets get started.

Make sure you have these packages installed:
yum install git perl libtool gcc make openssl-devel gcc-c++ perl-DBI perl-DBD-MySQL.x86_64
If you haven’t already, install MariaDB and it’s source do that first and make sure it works. Look here http://askmonty.org/wiki/MariaDB:Download#Packages for the packages.
I’m using CentOS 5.5 x64 so I used:
wget http://ftp.osuosl.org/pub/mariadb/mariadb-5.2.4/kvm-rpm-centos5-amd64/rpms/MariaDB-client-5.2.4-94.el5.x86_64.rpm wget[Read more...]
The trend for NoSQL stores such as memcache for fast key-value storage should give us pause for thought: what have regular database vendors been doing all this time? An important new project, HandlerSocket, seeks to leverage MySQL's raw speed for key-value storage.
NoSQL databases offer fast key-value storage for use in backing web applications, but years of work on regular relational[Read more...]
Just a short note again on HandlerSocket developments: PHP bindings to the HandlerSocket client library have been spotted in the wild: http://code.google.com/p/php-handlersocket/ (I'd like to credit someone, but I have no idea who user "avuenta" is on Google Code. Is it you Dathan?)
I found this on Dathan Vance Pattishall's blog. I haven't personally had time to try it out yet as I'm still deep into my current project (of which I hope to blog in January).
"...php-handlersocket which is a PECL type version (C driver with exposure to PHP). It does the job but needs some work that I'm doing now."

Starting with the great work of Yoshinori-san Using MySQL as a NoSQL – A story for exceeding 750,000 qps on a commodity server and Golan Zakai who posted Installing Dena’s HandlerSocket NoSQL plugin for MySQL on Centos I configured and tested HandlerSocket under Ubuntu 10.04 64bit.
NOTE: This machine already compiles MySQL and Drizzle. You should refer to appropriate source compile instructions for necessary dependencies.
