Dear MySQL users,

The MySQL Windows Experience Team is proud to announce the release of
MySQL Notifier version 1.1.8, the latest addition to the MySQL
Installer for Windows.

The MySQL installer comes in 2 versions

  their binaries included in the download

or

  Notifier over the web and install it when run.

You can download MySQL Installer from our official Downloads …

32-bit ODBC Driver 8.0 for Windows is back!

The previous release of MySQL Connector 8.0.11 caused confusion for many users because its lack of support for Windows 32-bit platform, which is still very popular.

The main reason for it was the change in the MySQL Server 8.0 and MySQL client 8.0 library design, which regarded the Windows 32-bit platform as obsolete. Unfortunately, it had a far reaching adverse impact on the family of MySQL Connectors based on libmysqlclient including MySQL Connector/ODBC.

We listened to the voice of the community and did our best to bring back the 32-bit ODBC Driver for Windows to allow using it in ASP, VB, 32-bit MS Office applications etc.

Now we are happy to announce the return of the fully featured 32-bit version of ODBC Driver 8.0 for Windows with the full support for MySQL Server 8.0. The community version of the driver will soon be available for public at the following address:

Windows Tools for MySQL DBAs: Basic Minidump Analysis

"To a man with a hammer, everything looks like a nail."Even though I had written many posts explaining the use of gdb for various MySQL-related tasks, I have to use other OS level troubleshooting tools from time to time. Moreover, as MySQL and MariaDB are still supported and used under Microsoft Windows in production by customers I have to serve them there, and use Windows-specific tools sometimes. So, I decided to start a series of posts (that I promised to my great colleague Vladislav Vaintroub (a.k.a Wlad) who helped me a lot over years and actually switched my attention from Performance Schema towards debuggers) about different Windows tools for MySQL DBAs (and support engineers).

Developers (and maybe even power users) on Windows probably know …

Running Percona XtraDB Cluster on Windows … in Docker

In this blog post, we’ll look at how to run Percona XtraDB Cluster on Windows using Docker.

This is a follow-up to my previous post on Percona XtraBackup on Windows. The fact is that with Docker you can now run a variety of software applications on Windows that previously were available only for Linux platforms.

We can run (to evaluate and for testing purposes) several nodes of Percona XtraDB Cluster on a single Windows box.

The steps for this are:

  1. Setup Docker on the Windows box.

Running Percona XtraBackup on Windows … in Docker

In this blog, we’ll look at running Percona XtraBackup on Windows via a Docker container.

The question whether Percona XtraBackup is available for Windows comes up every so often. While we are not planning to provide regular releases for Windows, I decided to share a way to run Percona XtraBackup in a Docker container (especially since Docker support for Windows has become more and more stable).

For this exercise, I created a playground Docker image: perconalab/percona-xtrabackup.

First, we need to prepare a few things to make it work:

  1. Install Docker on Windows (the current version I am running is 17.03)
  2. Enable the sharing of disk C in Docker settings
  3. Find out the IP address MySQL is running on …

A look at Unicode with bash on Windows

When I wrote this blog about “bash on Windows” a few days ago I omitted one issue, that I already knew about. This is because it needs some elaboration that did not ‘fit in’ the previous blog. So I will do it here.

It is about Unicode. Unicode always was a pain in “cmd” and with the arrival of “bash” in Windows, this has become more significant and important. Actually on any recent *nix platform user will not do anything to make Unicode work ‘out of the box’ in the console and display all or almost all scripts (though I have noticed that the completeness of the ‘monospace’ font mostly used in the Linux console varies between Linux distros – with …

MyQuery 3.5.6 released

I released version 3.5.6 of MyQuery, and there are quite a number of new features and fixes in there. The #1 bugfix is that the annoying access warnings that poped up from Windows when saving to the registry are gone, as I have now moved the registry to a more Windows 10 acceptable place. Among the new features are:

  • JSON format output when saving results.
  • More flexible CSV format output with many new options.
  • Ability to save Dyncol as JSON in CSV and JSON output.
  • Nicer formatting of numbers in status dialogs.
  • Auto refresh of status dialogs

 As this is a version with many new features, I still consider this a Beta. I have built it on Windows 10 and tested it on Windows 10 and 7, 64-bit, although MyQuery itself is still a 32-bit windows application.

Happy SQL'ing

Working with more than 64 CPUs in Powershell

Wrote this several months ago but was too busy to publish :-/

As noted in one of the previous blog post, I will use following terminology:

  • "Processor" is a piece of hardware you connect to a socket on the motherboard.
  • "Physical Core" is a physical computing unit built into the "Processor".
  • "Virtual Core" is a virtual computing unit built on top of "Physical Core" (i.e. HT is ON).
  • "CPU" is a computing unit inside the "Processor", either physical or virtual.


After a series of blogs on Windows performance counters and after releasing sysb.ps1 testing/benchmarking framework version 0.9RC (dbt2-0.37.50.10) I set out to eliminate some unknowns from the testing. First to tackle …
