Percona Blog Poll Results: What Database Engine Are You Using to Store Time Series Data?

In this blog post, we talk about the results of Percona’s time series database poll “What Database Engine Are You Using to Store Time Series Data?”

Time series data is some of the most actionable data available when it comes to analyzing trends and making predictions. Simply put, time series data is data that is indexed not just by value, but by time as well – allowing you to view value changes over time as they occur. Obvious uses include the stock market, web traffic, user behavior, etc.

With the increasing number of smart devices in the Internet of Things (IoT), being able to track data over time is more and more important. With time series data, you can measure and make …

MySQL version poll: a not so scientific analysis

Prior to my talk at LaraconEU 2016 I was curious to know how much adoption for MySQL 5.7 was in within the community.

I tweeted this:

Pool, use twitter client to see it:

Which Version of MySQL do you use? SELECT @VERSION; RT for reach, please.

Gabriela D'Ávila (@gabidavila) August 23, 2016

Twitter polls only gives you up to 4 items to choose. What I wanted to know is if people were using MariaDB or other forks like Percona, but I didn’t had the proper space, and I  only put three options.

This January I managed to get a bit more syndication on my tweet and more people replied. I added a 4th option, “Other”. This option could …

Percona Poll: What Database Technologies Are You Using?

Take Percona’s poll on what database technologies you use in your environment.

Different databases get designed for different scenarios. Using one database technology for every situation doesn’t make sense, and can lead to non-optimal solutions for common issues. Big data and IoT applications, high availability, secure backups, security, cloud vs. on-premises deployment: each have a set of requirements that might need a special technology. Relational, document-based, key-value, graphical, column family – there are many options for many problems. More and more, database environments combine more than one solution to address the various needs of an enterprise or application (known as polyglot persistence).

Please take a few seconds and answer the following poll on database technologies. Which are you using? Help …

Vote for the next Kontrollbase feature

It’s about time to add a new major feature to Kontrollbase. I’ve had some great feedback from the user community regarding features and options for improvement. Here’s your chance to get a vote in on the next addition. Vote now!

Poll set to handle poll, eventports, epoll, kqueue and Windows IO Completion

This blog describes background and implementation of a poll
set to monitor many sockets in one or several receive
threads. The blog is intended as a description but also to
enable some feedback on the design.

I've been spending some time working out all the gory details
of starting and stopping lots of send threads, connection
threads and receive threads over the last few months.

The receive threads will be monitoring a number of socket
connections and as soon as data is available ensure that
the data is received and forwarded to the proper user
thread for execution.

However listening on many sockets is a problem which needs
a scalable solution. Almost every operating system on the
planet has some solution to this problem. The problem is
that they all have different solutions. So I decided to
make a simple interface to those socket …

Post on replication poll was lost

My last post on the replication poll was apparently lost from Planet MySQL. If you're interested, I commented on the replication poll, our future plans, and how they were affected by the poll.

The replication poll and our plans for the future

We've been running replication poll and we've got some answers, so I thought I would comment a little on the results of the poll and what our future plans with respect to replication is as a result of the feedback. As I commented in the previous post, there are some items that require a significant development effort, but the feedback we got helps us to prioritize.

The top five items from the poll above stands out, so I thought that I would comment on each of them in turn. The results of the poll were (when this post were written):

Online check that Master and Slave tables are consistent 45.4%
Multi-source replication: replicating from …

The coolest future replication features... something that you influence what it will be.

The problem with replication is that we have so many things that we want to do, but we are not that many people. What we do is what everybody does when the to-do list is to long: prioritize. Since the replication features are developed for you (yes, you), we have added a quickpoll on the where you can pick the three most important replication features that you would like to see us focus on next (after the 5.1 GA).

Do you think that on-line checks for table consistency is for weenies that cannot write a simple little script to do that? Please tell us that.

Do you prefer to live on the edge and think that semi-synchronous replication is for safety junkies? Well, we'll be glad to hear your opinion.

Do you think that the YouTube …
