ProxySQL 2.0.3 and updated proxysql-admin tool

ProxySQL 2.0.3, released by ProxySQL, is now available for download in the Percona Repository along with an updated version of Percona’s proxysql-admin tool.

ProxySQL is a high-performance proxy, currently for MySQL,  and database servers in the MySQL ecosystem (like Percona Server for MySQL and MariaDB). It acts as an intermediary for client requests seeking resources from the database. René Cannaò created ProxySQL for DBAs as a means of solving complex replication topology issues.

The ProxySQL 2.0.3 source and binary packages available from the …

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 …

The MySQL Track (and More) at Percona Live 2019

This year we’re having a different concept for Percona Live conferences, which started at Percona Live Europe 2018 last fall. This is an approach practiced by many other organizations by having separate track for MySQL®, MongoDB®, MariaDB®, or PostgreSQL and more.

Having many tracks in this big Open Source Database Conference meant that one track steering committee could not be asked to handle all the talks for each track. So we formed several mini-committees to make sure that the submissions to each of the tracks received the right level of attention from the right kind …

Percona Monitoring and Management (PMM) 2.0.0-alpha1 Is Now Available

We are pleased to announce the launch of PMM 2.0.0-alpha1, Percona’s first Alpha release of our long-awaited PMM 2 project! We focused exclusively on MySQL support in our first Alpha (because we wanted to show progress sooner rather than later), and you’ll find updated MySQL dashboards along with enhancements to Query Analytics. We’ve also added better visibility regarding which services are registered with PMM Server, the client-side addition of a new agent called pmm-agent, and finally PMM Server is now exposing an API!

  • Query Analytics
    • Support for large environments – default view all queries from all instances
    • Filtering – display only the results matching filters – MySQL schema name, MySQL server instance
    • Sorting and more columns – now sort by any …

Percona Universities in South America Next Week

There’s just one week to go before the first of this year’s Percona University events in South America. We’re really pleased with the lineup for all three events. We’re also incredibly happy with the response that we have had from the community. While we realize that a free event is… well… free… you are still giving up your time and travel. We place great value on that and we’re making sure that you’ll be hearing quality technical talks from Percona and our guest speakers. Most of the talks will be presented in Spanish – Portuguese in Brazil – although slides will be made available in English.

In fact, the events have been so popular that it’s quite possible that by the time you read this we’ll be operating a wait list for Montevideo

A Truly Open Source Database Conference

Many of our regular attendees already know that the Percona Live Open Source Database Conference is not all about Percona software or, indeed, all about Percona. However, with moving to a new city—Austin, TX— we have realized that it’s something we ought to shout out loud and clear. Our conference really is technology agnostic! As long as submissions were related to open source databases then they were candidate for selection.

We have thirteen tracks at this year’s conference including a track entitled “Other Open Source Databases” which we are presenting alongside tracks dedicated to MySQL®, …
