Linux top command on Windows, further investigations

In my previous post, I spoke of "Normalized" and "Non-Normalized" CPU utilization values:
--
TABLE:Foreword: Windows is not "process" based OS (like Linux) but rather "thread" based so all of the numbers relating to CPU usage are approximations. I did made a "proper" CPU per Process looping and summing up Threads counter (https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa394279%28v=vs.85%29.aspx) based on PID but that proved too slow given I have ~1 sec to deal with everything. CPU utilization using RAW counters with 1s delay between samples proved to produce a bit more reliable result than just reading Formatted counters but, again, too slow for my 1s ticks (collect sample, wait 1s, collect sample, do the math takes longer than 1s). Thus I use PerfFormatted counters in version 0.9RC.

My endeavour to build MySQL on Windows

I recently worked a lot on getting my local Windows box to compile Windows.
I got a lot of help from the below link that took me a few steps towards the
solution.
http://www.chriscalender.com/resolving-the-bison-exe-m4-invalid-argument-error-when-building-mysqlmariadbxtradb-on-windows/

I had to save away my bison installation, uninstall it and then also
go into a registry editor and remove the various links to the Start Menu referring to
some help for Bison that had spaces in the registry. Resolving this meant that I could
manually run bison on the files in the mysql tarball and get the desired result. But it
was still not enough, I still had the same error when running a full automatic compile.

So then I found the …

MySQL Group Replication now on Windows

In the previous releases of the Group Replication plugin for MySQL we introduced support for several operating systems like Mac OS X, Solaris, and FreeBSD. But why stop there? So here it is, the 0.7.0 version of Group Replication is now also available on Windows!…

Using Powershell to implement Linux top command on Windows

Welcome to the final blog in Windows PerfCounters and Powershell series and sorry for the delay. The purpose of this blog is to explain the inner workings of top-script.ps1 script and practical usage of Performance counters on Windows through Powershell. It is intended for people who want Linux top - like tool on Windows.

The script is a part of and available in our existing benchmarking package (dbt2-0.37.50.10) developed by Mikael Ronstrom.

On Top:If you ever did benchmarking on Linux or simply wondered "where did all my resources go", top is your best friend. Since this post is not about Linux, you can google "Linux top explained" for more details.


On Performance counters:To learn about Windows PerfCounters, please refer to my previous …

Windows PerfCounters and Powershell - Memory perf data

In the last blog I spoke of CPU counters. Now, I'll talk of Memory counters.

MEMORY Counters (CIM_PhysicalMemory class, Win32_PerfFormattedData_PerfOS_Memory class, Memory Performance Information ...): Note: I introduced the notion of samples and how to fetch them using NextValue() so I will occasionally omit $var.NextValue() going forward.

Let me note here that if you thought previously described performance classes were complicated, you are now entering the realm of black magic ;-) There is a good …

Windows PerfCounters and Powershell - Fetching the values

Summary from last blog:

  • Tip: An alias for Get-CimInstance is GCim, for Select-Object it's Select and for Get-WmiObject is GWmi.
  • There are Raw and Formatted counters. Watch out for formula converting Raw samples to Formatted values.



NAMESPACE organizationThe general organization of namespaces is as follows:
  Category (Class if you prefer)
    Counter(s)
      Instance(s)
Every Category has Counters but not all of the Counters have Instances. The full path to the desired value is called a __PATH:

PS > GWmi Win32_PerfFormattedData_PerfOS_Processor | Select __Path

__PATH

MySQL 5.7 Labs — Using Loopback Fast Path With Windows 8/2012

TCP Loopback fast path

In Windows 8 and Windows server 2012, Microsoft introduced a new “TCP Loopback fast path” feature (see the Microsoft Technet article: Fast TCP Loopback Performance and Low Latency with Windows Server 2012 TCP Loopback Fast Path).…

Track and Optimize Server Connection Methods

The MySQL server supports a variety of client connection methods. To summarize: you have TCP/IP (v4 and v6) on all OSes (with or without TLS/SSL encryption), Unix Domain Sockets on Unix/Linux, and Named Pipes and/or Shared Memory on Windows.

Each of these connection methods has its own set of pros and cons: speed, security, portability, and ease-of-use.…

We've Moved!

I want to take a moment to thank you for reading this blog. We are working very hard on cool tools for you to use with MySQL and we really enjoy spreading the news of these tools to you.  With this in mind I wanted to update you on something that is changing. We are moving to a new blog home at http://insidemysql.com/.  From this point on all new content will be posted on our new blog and we encourage each of you to update your bookmarks accordingly.  Our aggregator at http://planet.mysql.com/ has already been updated.

Don' t worry! The old posts will still be here so your old bookmarks will still work.  You can find our new Windows focused category at

For the brave: compiling Workbench 6.3 using Visual Studio 2013 on Windows

Compiling MySQL Workbench yourself is quite a common task for Linux users, even though the application is available precompiled for certain platforms ready from our download page and available in our yum and apt repositories. In this blog post we show you how to compile it on Windows.

Introduction

Doing a build on Windows is a totally different matter and most users never need to do that. It’s mostly intersting for those wanting own functionality or just being curious. But you should be an experienced Visual Studio user. It’s a complicated task and not a good start for a beginner. The key problem when building on Windows is that we cannot ship any 3rd party library we used. Instead you have to collect them all yourself. In order to ease that task we created the list below. Each library comes with a version number which usually specifies the minimum version to be used. Most of the time it’s not mandatory to use the exact …
