MySQL Shell is a command-line shell for MySQL Server that has the
interactive and batch code execution. It also offers a wealth of APIs that make it easier and more efficient to work with and manage MySQL servers. In 8.0.13, we made an effort to make those APIs easily accessible straight from the command line.…

Recently we had a customer that had issues with a filled disk on the server hosting their Docker pmm-server environment. They were not able to access the web UI, or even stop the pmm-server container because they had filled the /var/ mount point.
Setting correct expectations
The best way to avoid these kinds of issues in the first place is to plan ahead, and to know exactly with what you are dealing with in terms of disk space requirements. Michael Coburn has written a great blogpost on this matter:

My talk is titled Need for speed: Boosting Apache Cassandra’s performance using Netty. Over the years that I have worked in the software industry, making code run fast has fascinated me. So, naturally when I first started contributing to Apache Cassandra, I started looking opportunities to improve its performance. My talk takes us through some interesting challenges within a distributed system like Apache Cassandra and various techniques to significantly improve its performance. Talking about performance is incredibly exciting because you can easily quantify and see the results. Making improvements to the database’s performance not only improves the user experience but also reflects positively on the organization’s bottom line. It also has the added …[Read more]

In the context of providing managed WordPress hosting services, at Presslabs we operate with lots of small to medium-sized databases, in a DB-per-service model, as we call it. The workloads are mostly reads, so we need to efficiently scale that. The MySQL® asynchronous replication model fits the bill very well, allowing us to scale horizontally from one server—with the obvious availability pitfalls—to tens of nodes. The next release of the stack is going to be open-sourced.
As we were already using Kubernetes, we were looking for an operator that could automate our DB deployments and auto-scaling. Those available were doing synchronous replication using MySQL group replication or Galera-based replication. Therefore, we decided to write our own operator.
The …[Read more]
