Is Galera trx_commit=2 and sync_binlog=0 evil?

It has been almost 5 years since I posted on my personal MySQL related blog. In the past few years I have worked for Severalnines and blogging both on their corporate blog and here would be confusing. After that I forgot and neglected this blog a bit, but it’s time to revive this blog!

Speaking at Percona Live Europe – Amsterdam 2019

Why? I will be presenting at Percona Live Europe soon and this blog and upcoming content is the more in-depth part of some background stories in my talk on benchmarking: Benchmarking should never be optional. The talk will mainly cover why you should always benchmark your servers, clusters and entire systems.

Fun with Bugs #89 - On MySQL Bug Reports I am Subscribed to, Part XXIII

I have to celebrate the anniversary of my last day in Oracle (that was 7 years ago!) somehow, and I think writing yet another blog post about Oracle MySQL bugs is a good way to do this. I am actually surprised (and happy) that public bugs database is still alive, maintained and considered important in Oracle, and I know who in Oracle was working hard all these years for this to happen!

In my previous post in this series I've stopped on Bug #95954 and had not completed review of interesting MySQL bug reports that I've subscribed to in June 2019. So, below I start with the next bug in my list, complete review for June and cover some bugs reported in July. There were many.

Percona Live Community Dinner 2019

It was all aboard the Lone Star river boat for the 100 delegates who joined our Community Dinner. Loading took quite some time, Tom Basil attended to the guest list, and then the necessary signatures for those aboard. I’d woken at 6am to a less than favorable forecast, but the weather was kind to us, with blue sky and a gentle breeze.

My colleague and local Austin resident Rick Vasquez had on Tuesday treated me to my first visit to a US liquor store, Specs. This store was bigger than the largest store in my hometown but sold only alcohol-related products and drink-friendly snacks. An experience in itself! We stuck to the brief of Texas-only brew for our guests.

As people boarded they received their swag – PlanetScale and Percona branded steel enamel mugs – and bar and dinner queues formed. The lines moved relatively quickly for the fajita and tex mex themed buffet. …

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 …

MariaDB Track at Percona Live

Less than one month left until Percona Live. This time the Committee work was a bit unusual. Instead of having one big committee for the whole conference we had a few mini-committees, each responsible for a track. Each independent mini-committee, in turn, had a leader who was responsible for the whole process. I led the MariaDB track. In this post, I want to explain how we worked, which topics we have chosen, and why.

For MariaDB, we had seven slots: five for 50-minutes talks, two for 25-minutes talks and 19 submissions. We had to reject two out of three proposals. We also had to decide how many topics the program should cover. My aim here was to use the MariaDB track to demonstrate as many MariaDB unique features as …
