What's New in MariaDB Server 10.3

What's New in MariaDB Server 10.3 maxmether Fri, 05/25/2018 - 18:52

We are happy to announce the general availability (GA) of MariaDB Server 10.3! This release is a big milestone for the development of MariaDB Server and is the result of a huge effort by the development team and contributors – thanks to everyone involved! With our previous major release of MariaDB Server 10.2 last year, we started a journey of adding more enterprise-grade features to better close the gap with proprietary databases. With MariaDB Server 10.3 we take a huge leap on that journey by being the first enterprise open source database to add features like temporal data processing (through system versioning) as well as compatibility with Oracle sequences and Oracle PL/SQL. At the same time, we want to stay true to our open source and innovative roots by adding support for new storage engines …

The Perfect Server - Ubuntu 18.04 (Bionic Beaver) with Apache, PHP, MySQL, PureFTPD, BIND, Postfix, Dovecot and ISPConfig 3.1

This tutorial shows how to install an Ubuntu 18.04 LTS (Bionic Beaver) server with Apache, BIND, Dovecot and ISPConfig 3.1. ISPConfig is a web hosting control panel that allows you to configure the following services through a web browser: Apache or nginx web server, Postfix mail server, Courier or Dovecot IMAP/POP3 server, MySQL, BIND or MyDNS nameserver, PureFTPd, SpamAssassin, ClamAV, and many more. This setup covers the installation of Apache (instead of nginx), BIND (instead of MyDNS), and Dovecot (instead of Courier).

Recommended fix for MySQL Checker Query Script for Tungsten Clustering

We have identified an issue in a script that is executed as part of the Tungsten Clustering solution. The script itself executes a small query against the internal tables used by the replicator in order to help identify the current status and latency of the replication process. We believe this script may occasionally fail under some very specific conditions, which would not normally be an issue, but the knock on effect is to create Out of Memory errors and instability in the way identifying the current replication state is handled.

The issue has been fixed in the upcoming 6.0.1 and 5.3.2 releases, but we have identified that customers on versions of the Tungsten Clustering solution from v4.0 upwards would benefit from using an updated version of the script.

If you are using Tungsten Clustering 4.x or higher, it is recommended that you apply this patch to improve the stability of your clustering …

Ensure better defaults with InnoDB Dedicated server.

We have seen with most of the consulting projects where the customer might be having a dedicated DB (MySQL) server ,but running with a default configuration, without any optimisation for underlying hardware, “An idle hardware is similar to idle money will give you no returns”.

Well again if you are from a non-DBA background and you have chosen InnoDB as your engine of choice. The next question will be, what are the major variable that needs to be tuned for the available hardware? here is the answer for you

In this post, We are going to detail about the variable innodb_dedicated_server in MySQL 8.0.11. This variable solves our above …

Geographic Spatial Reference Systems in MySQL 8.0

MySQL 8.0.11 comes with a catalog of 5108 spatial reference system (SRS) definitions, and 479 of these are geographic. We usually just refer to them by SRID, but in this blog post we’ll dive into the details and try to understand the definition itself.…

Using dbdeployer to manage MySQL, Percona Server and MariaDB sandboxes

Some years ago, Peter Z wrote a blogpost about using MySQL Sandbox to deploy multiple server versions. Last February, Giuseppe  introduced us to its successor: dbdeployer. In this blogpost we will demonstrate how to use it. There is a lot of information in Giuseppe’s post, so head there if you want a deeper dive.

First step is to install it, which is really easy to do now since it’s developed in Go, and standalone executables are provided. You can get the latest version …

Setting up PMM on Google Compute Engine in 15 minutes or less

In this blog post, I will show you how easy it is to set up a Percona Monitoring and Management server on Google Compute Engine from the command line.

First off you will need to have a Google account and install the Cloud SDK tool. You need to create a GCP (Google Cloud Platform) project and enable billing to proceed. This blog assumes you are able to authenticate and SSH into instances from the command line.

Here are the steps to install PMM server in Google Cloud Platform.

1) Create the Compute engine instance with the following command. The example creates an Ubuntu Xenial 16.04 LTS compute instance in the us-west1-b zone with a 100GB persistent disk. For production systems it would be best to use a 500GB disk instead (size=500GB). This should be …

MariaDB TX 3.0 – First to Deliver on the Promise of Enterprise Open Source

MariaDB TX 3.0 – First to Deliver on the Promise of Enterprise Open Source Shane Johnson Thu, 05/24/2018 - 15:28

It’s one thing to be open source. It’s another to be enterprise open source.

That begs the question: What does it mean to be enterprise open source?

You have to be 100% committed to the open source community – collaboration, transparency and innovation. You have to be 100% committed to customer success – providing the enterprise features and reliability needed to support mission-critical applications.

However, being committed is not enough. You have to be a leader. You have to challenge proprietary vendors, and that includes vendors who limit open source projects with proprietary extensions and/or plugins.

MariaDB TX 3.0 sets the standard for enterprise open source databases, and as the leader, we’re challenging Oracle, Microsoft and IBM with it. Here’s how.

Comparing MySQL to Vertica Replication under MemCloud, AWS and Bare Metal

Back in December, I did a detailed analysis for getting data into Vertica from MySQL using Tungsten Replicator, all within the Kodiak MemCloud.

I got some good numbers towards the end – 1.9 million rows/minute into Vertica. I did this using a standard replicator deployment, plus some tweaks to the Vertica environment. In particular:

  • Integer hash for a partition for both the staging and base tables
  • Some tweaks to the queries to ensure that we used the partitions in the most efficient manner
  • Optimized the batching within the applier to hit the right numbers for the transaction counts

That last one is a bit of a cheat because in a real-world situation it’s much harder to be able to identify those transaction sizes and row counts, but for testing, we’re trying to get the best performance!

Next what I wanted to do was set up some bare metal and AWS servers that were of an …
