Save Space on MySQL data with Column Compression

                                   Recently, One of our client reached our Remote DBA team with a requirement to reduce the size of the table as it is having many text columns with huge number of records. At preliminary check , I have validated the table size and its row format, as it was  in compressed  format already. 

Later I checked on other possibilities to compress the text columns further, At that time, then I came across per-column compression feature in Percona MySQL server (From 5.7.17-11) which features individual column compression and we were using …

Session Variables

In MySQL and Oracle, you set a session variable quite differently. That means you should expect there differences between setting a session variable in Postgres. This blog post lets you see how to set them in all three databases. I’m always curious what people think but I’m willing to bet that MySQL is the simplest approach. Postgres is a bit more complex because you must use a function call, but Oracle is the most complex.

The difference between MySQL and Postgres is an “@” symbol versus a current_setting() function call. Oracle is more complex because it involves the mechanics in Oracle’s sqlplus shell, SQL dialect, and PL/SQL language (required to assign a value to a variable).

MySQL

MySQL lets you declare a session variable in one step and use it one way in a SQL statement or stored procedure.

  1. You set a session variable on a single line with the following …

MySQL Check Constraints to the Rescue

   

You as a MySQL administrator/developer are really excited about cloning in MySQL 8.0.17.  You are reading all the recent blogs. You know that quickly getting a replica up and running is quite important to your dev team.

Besides, ‘cloning’ reminds you of the old classic film ‘Sleeper’ where the actors clone a new leader from the dead leader’s nose. 

Thinking of all this puts you in great spirits. Moving from MySQL 5.7 to MySQL 8.0 is high on your agenda. 

Suddenly, the CEO walks up to your desk. “We lost millions in sales last quarter,” he yells. “It’s your fault. We sold all of our items at the discounted price rather than the actual price. You need to fix this today if not sooner.” 

With that, the CEO reminds you of another reason to move to MySQL 8.0 : check constraints, which came out in 8.0.16. 

You know that ensuring that data is …

The People and Values Behind Great Software-as-a-Service (SaaS)

Great SaaS – starts with great software. My company has been working on this mission since 2004.

It took a few years to get our solution right – to offer a geo-distributed MySQL database backend for billion-dollar businesses. And it took a few more years to polish it.

Today, we continue to improve it day-in, day-out.

But there is no doubt the patience and perseverance pays off:

While the number of Tungsten-clustered databases in-production is in the thousands, we average only one (1) new support request per day, and, because of this, we provide an average response time less than three (3) minutes.

Not enough is said about the people and values behind great software; so that’s what I want to talk about here. Continuent is an agile, globally-distributed, remote team that is much greater than the sum of its parts. Our software helps global enterprises …

InnoDB Cluster: Recovering an instance with MySQL Enterprise Backup.

Ok, so if you’re reading this, then I can guess you’ve got a MySQL InnoDB Cluster in an awkard shape, i.e. you need to restore a backup and add the instance back into the cluster, so we have all our instances again.

As it might be logical to think “ah, but I’ve only lost 1 instance, a read-only instance, so all I have to do is backup & restore the other read-only instance and I’m home free. Well I want to make it a little harder. So in this scenario, assume that we’ve lost both the READ-ONLY instances, so I need to backup my primary READ-WRITE instance.

I’ve got a 8.0.16 instance, on Oracle Linux 7.4. We’ll be looking at 2 hosts, ic1 & ic3.

We’ll be using the MySQL Enterprise Edition Server, that bundles MySQL Enterprise Backup with the rpm’s so we don’t need to install anything else.

I’ll assume you’ve got access to Oracle …

About Continuous MySQL & MariaDB Database Operations & More at Percona Live Austin This Month!

So, typically, a Percona Live (or MySQL User) Conference blog would start off with some mention of the fact that it’s great to be meeting up again in Santa Clara, California, the birthplace of the MySQL User Conference, and a continuous fixture on the yearly MySQL community agenda.

But no, not this time!

On this occasion, the Percona Live Conference blog starts off by pointing out that for the first time since its inception (as far as I can recollect), the MySQL User Conference, i.e. Percona Live Conference (in North America) doesn’t take place in Santa Clara, but rather in Austin, Texas.

Never having been to Texas before myself, I’m looking forward to that innovation, discovering the new surroundings and seeing whether that changes anything or not to the familiar “feel” of a Percona Live / MySQL User Conference.

By the way, there’s still time to …

MySQL Server Deployment with Docker – Basic Installation Instructions for Both the Community and Enterprise Versions

An easy way to setup one or multiple MySQL server deployments on a single server is to use Docker – a computer program that performs operating-system-level virtualization. Docker is simple-to-use and allows you to run multiple containers at once.

A container is a standard unit of software that packages up code and all its dependencies so the application runs quickly and reliably from one computing environment to another. A Docker container image is a lightweight, standalone, executable package of software that includes everything needed to run an application: code, runtime, system tools, system libraries and settings. (Source: https://www.docker.com/resources/what-container)

In other words, think of a container as a virtual machine without the graphical user interface (GUI). There are third-party GUI’s available, but for this post, I am going to use a …
