The XLDB4 Conference for Very Large Databases

Ronald saved me a post by giving his feedback on a few Oracle conferences that now have MySQL content.

My opinion is pretty much a summary of Ronald’s post, so I won’t repeat it here. Instead, I’ll post about a conference he did not, the 4th Extremely Large Databases Conference. I am particularly interested in any MySQL folks planning to attend (I would expect Tokutek to be represented, and maybe even the Calpont folks).

Most of this is directly from an e-mail I received from Jacek Becla, who had a keynote at the 2008 MySQL User Conference and Expo. If you also received this e-mail, please feel free to skip …

Liveblogging: Senior Skills: Grok awk

[author's note: personally, I use awk a bunch in MySQL DBA work, for tasks like scrubbing data from a production export for use in qa/dev, but usually have to resort to Perl for really complex stuff, but now I know how to do .]

By default, fields are separated by any number of spaces. The -F option to awk changes the separator on commandline.
Print the first field, fields are separated by a colon.
awk -F: '{print $1}' /etc/passwd

Print the first and fifth field:
awk -F: '{$print $1,$5}' /etc/passwd

Can pattern match and use files, so you can replace:
grep foo /etc/passwd | awk -F: '{print $1,$5}'
awk -F: '/foo/ {print $1,$5}' /etc/passwd

NF = built in variable (no $) used to mean “field number”
This will print the first and last fields of lines where the first …

Log Buffer #188, a Carnival of the Vanities for DBAs

It’s Friday already, and we know what that means! Log Buffer, the industry’s weekly review of database blogs is here again for your reading pleasure in the 188th issue.

Starting off this week’s issue is a request from Mark Grennan a DBA who would like to let the community know about his blog MySQL Fan Boy, where he wrote an interesting post on including a script to replace MySQL table files on a live system, making it faster and limiting locking on large table loads. Also a post this week on whether MariaDB is a drop in …

Suggested by Pythian’s Bradd Piontek, is a post he really liked because he used to write pipelined functions for Dynamic Search queries, – Tom Kyte’s something new I learned about estimated cardinalities. He’s also highlighted something new Tom learned about sqlplus. And the fact that Richard Foote announced the …

Log Buffer #186, a Carnival of the Vanities for DBAs

Welcome to the 186th Edition of Log Buffer. Lots to report this week, so read on…

In Oracle news:

We begin with Gary Myers at the Sydney Oracle Lab who mixes GUI and CLI and shows how to manage your database from EMACS. You have to read a post that starts with: “There is a place of shadow, a place between the dark lands of the command-line interface, and the shining brightness of the GUI. In the days of yore, many dwelled in the shadow lands, but almost all have been attracted to the lights of SQL Developer…”

Tanel Poder gives a step by step tour of his …

They are grouped mostly by topic, except for the main stage events (keynote, ignite) and interviews.

MySQL Conference 2010 – Last day

The post is a little late since we came back to the hotel in the wee hours of the morning and I had to get up at 5:00am this morning.

Anyway, The morning’s keynotes again were quite good especially the one from Ubunto. I attend another packed Facebook session and one from Ronald Bradford. It was the first time I head him speak and he is very good.

I didn’t attend many of the afternoon events because of customer commitments but the remain group at the hotel had a passionate discussion on Oracle role in the MySQL community so its far from over and Oracle has one year to fix it. See you all next year
