In my previous blog post, I showed how to deploy Percona Monitoring and Management (PMM) on Linode manually. It is pretty simple, but with a little coding it can be done even more easily using StackScripts
1. Click on the “Add a Linode” and pick a Linode type you want to deploy.
2. Click on the deployed Linode and then click on the “Rebuild” Link
3. Click on Deploy Using StackScripts
4. On the resulting page search for “PMM” and pick PMMServer from PerconaLab.
5. Provide the host name for new Linode, pick the root password and click on “Rebuild”
6. Boot the server.
7. You’re done. Wait for about 5 minutes for the installation to complete, then you can see PMM interface by going to this Linode …[Read more]
Please join Percona’s Architect, Tibi Köröcz as he presents Utilizing ProxySQL for Connection Pooling in PHP on Tuesday August 14, 2018, at 8:00 am PDT (UTC-7) / 11:00 am EDT (UTC-4).
ProxySQL is a very powerful tool, with extended capabilities. This presentation will demonstrate how to use ProxySQL to gain functionality (seamless database backend switch) and correct problems (applications missing connection pooling).
The presentation will be a real-life study on how we use ProxySQL
for connection pooling, database failover and load balancing the
communication between our (third party) PHP-application and our
Also, we will …

It’s very easy to install Percona Monitoring and Management (PMM) on DigitalOcean. If you’ve never used DigitalOcean before, you will find that it is user-friendly and not very expensive. For $5/month you can easily host your PMM on it, letting you monitor your simple infrastructure or try out PMM before implementing it to monitor your production environments.
Let’s prepare the DigitalOcean instance
Log in to DigitalOcean (DO) control panel and click “Create Droplet.”
Thanks to DO you can skip the boring OS setup and save time by using the Docker “One click app” in DO and the Docker image from PMM.
Note: After clicking on “Docker…” choose an instance size that accommodates your budget – PMM can run on as little as the 1GB 1vCPU instance!
Note: Scroll again!
Next step – select a nearby region …[Read more]
Please join Percona’s Principal Architect Alex Rubin as he presents MySQL, Percona XtraDB Cluster, ProxySQL, Kubernetes: How they work together to give you a highly available cluster database environment on Tuesday, May 29th at 7:00 AM PDT (UTC-7) / 10:00 AM EDT (UTC-4).
Some years ago, Peter Z wrote a blogpost about using MySQL Sandbox to deploy multiple server versions. Last February, Giuseppe introduced us to its successor: dbdeployer. In this blogpost we will demonstrate how to use it. There is a lot of information in Giuseppe’s post, so head there if you want a deeper dive.
First step is to install it, which is really easy to do now since it’s developed in Go, and standalone executables are provided. You can get the latest version …[Read more]
In this blog post, I will show you how easy it is to set up a Percona Monitoring and Management server on Google Compute Engine from the command line.
First off you will need to have a Google account and install the Cloud SDK tool. You need to create a GCP (Google Cloud Platform) project and enable billing to proceed. This blog assumes you are able to authenticate and SSH into instances from the command line.
Here are the steps to install PMM server in Google Cloud Platform.
1) Create the Compute engine instance with the following command. The example creates an Ubuntu Xenial 16.04 LTS compute instance in the us-west1-b zone with a 100GB persistent disk. For production systems it would be best to use a 500GB disk instead (size=500GB). This should be …[Read more]
For the impatient:
# echo -e "deb http://repo.mysql.com/apt/debian/ stretch mysql-5.7\ndeb-src http://repo.mysql.com/apt/debian/ stretch mysql-5.7" > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/mysql.list # wget -O /tmp/RPM-GPG-KEY-mysql https://repo.mysql.com/RPM-GPG-KEY-mysql # apt-key add /tmp/RPM-GPG-KEY-mysql # apt update # apt install mysql-server
In the latest stable version of Debian, if you ask to install mysql-server, you now get installed mariadb automatically, with no (evident) way of installing Oracle’s MySQL. Any major version upgrade has to be done carefully (not only for MariaDB, but also for MySQL and Postgres), and I bet that a MySQL 5.5 to MariaDB 10.1 will cause a huge confusion. Not only it will fail user expectations, I think this will cause large issues now that MariaDB has chosen to become a “hard” fork, and become incompatible in many ways with MySQL. Not only the server upgrade will cause user struggle, the connector is …[Read more]
In this blog post, we’ll look at three different methods for installing Percona Monitoring and Management (PMM).
Percona offers multiple methods of installing Percona Monitoring and Management, depending on your environment and scale. I’ll also share comments on which installation methods we’ve decided to forego for now. Let’s begin by reviewing the three supported methods:
- Virtual Appliance
- Amazon Machine Image
We ship an OVF/OVA method to make installation as simple as …[Read more]
