MySQL 8.0 Document Store – How to deal with date & time

As you know, MySQL 8.0 can be used as JSON Document Store to store your documents without being linked to any schema. You can also use CRUD operations to deal with these documents using the MySQL X DevAPI.

Of course in documents, it’s possible to also store temporal attributes like date, time, datetime, …

Let’s see how we can deal with such attributes.

This is an example of a collection of documents with a datetime attribute createdOn:

As those attributes don’t have a real type, can we use the createdOn attribute as if it was a real datetime field ?

Let’s try to get all the documents have a created data > '2021-12-02':

We can see that the document “dave” has been filtered out. However, we can see that “kenny” and “miguel” are also present… and this is correct as …

MySQL 8.0 – InnoDB Parallel Threads for Online DDL Operations

MySQL 8.0.27 introduced a new variable to control the maximum of parallel threads InnoDB can use for creating (sorting and building) secondary indexes: innodb_ddl_threads.

This new variable is coupled with another new variable: innodb_ddl_buffer_size.

If you have fast storage and multiple CPU cores, tuning these variables can speed up secondary index creation.

For this example, I used the airportdb database, and I added a secondary index to the largest table, booking.

Let’s start with the default settings:

 SQL  alter table …

MySQL 8.0 – locking details

Recently, I saw many interest in understanding and getting information about database locking.

MySQL InnoDB’s locking can be complex and having an overview not always simple.

Migration from Percona XtraDB Cluster/Galera to MySQL InnoDB Cluster in 10 steps

MySQL InnoDB Cluster is the official High Availability solution for and from MySQL.

MySQL InnoDB Cluster is composed by MySQL Server, MySQL Group Replication, MySQL Router and MySQL Shell.

Before InnoDB Cluster there was no standard solution for MySQL Availability and many custom solutions were used (some better than the others). But there was a good solution using some similar principles of MySQL Group Replication: Galera.

Now that MySQL InnoDB Cluster is mature and easier to orchestrate than galera, I receive a lot of requests on how to migrate from Galera (or Percona XtraDB Cluster) to MySQL InnoDB Cluster.

I already wrote some time ago an article on this process: how to migrate from Galera to MySQL Group Replication.

In this article we will see how we can migrate from Percona XtraDB …

MySQL Shell and extra Python modules

When you use MySQL Shell with extra Python plugins (like these available on GitHub), sometimes, you could need extra Python modules.

Some of my plugins require requests and prettytable for example.

MySQL 8.0.26 uses embedded Python 3.9 and if your system doesn’t have that version (like Oracle Linux 8), you won’t be able to install the missing module.

So how could we install the missing modules ? The easiest method is to use PIP, but if you don’t have PIP for Python 3.9 installed on the system, this will be more complicated…. not really !

This how to install PIP in MySQL Shell:

wget https://bootstrap.pypa.io/get-pip.py
mysqlsh --py -f get-pip.py 

And now you can use PIP to install extra modules:

mysqlsh --pym pip …
