MySQL Shell and extra Python modules

When you use MySQL Shell with extra Python plugins (like these available on GitHub), sometimes, you could need extra Python modules.

Some of my plugins require requests and prettytable for example.

MySQL 8.0.26 uses embedded Python 3.9 and if your system doesn’t have that version (like Oracle Linux 8), you won’t be able to install the missing module.

So how could we install the missing modules ? The easiest method is to use PIP, but if you don’t have PIP for Python 3.9 installed on the system, this will be more complicated…. not really !

This how to install PIP in MySQL Shell:

mysqlsh --py -f 

And now you can use PIP to install extra modules:

mysqlsh --pym pip …

Best way to start a thread when looking for MySQL Help and more

I’m active on multiple platforms (mail, slack, forums, …) and often, when people are looking for help, the first 5 or 10 questions are always the same:

  • which version of MySQL are you running ?
  • which OS ?
  • is it in the cloud ?
  • which provider ?
  • are you using replication ?
  • GTIDs ?
  • ….

I’ve added to MySQL Shell Plugin repository and plugin called support which provides an output that user can share when looking for MySQL help.

Usually, I’m focusing only in MySQL 8.0, but this plugin works with older versions too (don’t try MySQL 3.23…. it should be compatible from 5.6).

Let’s see an output if I run it locally:

[fred@fedora ~] $ mysqlsh root@localhost -e "support.fetchInfo()"

Oracle Live: MySQL & HeatWave

On December 2, Edward Screven, Oracle’s chief corporate architect revealed the Oracle MySQL Database Service with Analytics Engine known as HeatWave.

During Oracle Live on August 10th, 9AM PST, 12 noon ET / 1 PM BRT / 6 PM CEST, Edward Screven will share our latest MySQL innovations, along with the latest benchmarks, that show the speed and cost savings gained with MySQL HeatWave.

HeatWave, in-memory query accelerator for the Oracle MySQL Database Service, allows customers to run very fast analytics queries directly against their MySQL databases entirely avoiding the step of data ETL into a …

Migrate MyISAM tables from MySQL 5.7 to 8.0

The MySQL Ecosystem has been using InnoDB as the default transactional engine for many years now. If you are one of the few still using MyISAM, it is time you also converted and benefited from InnoDB.

If you plan to upgrade to MySQL 8.0, you have several options to deal with those MyISAM tables.

Please note that you should not use MyISAM tables. MyISAM is not ACID compliant and can lead to data loss. Also MyISAM only supports full table lock and no row locking.

As you may recall, in 5.7, MyISAM has MYD, MYI, FRM files. In 8.0, the FRM is replaced with SDI (Serialized Dictionnary Information).  Lets review multiple ways to migrate those MyISAM tables to 8.0:

Migration Options

There are multiple solutions to migrate the MyISAM data to 8.0:

  1. In-place upgrade (just …

MDS, PHP and authentication

Recently I blogged about how to easily deploy a LAMP application to MDS.

Using the Terraform module (OCI Resource Manager’s Stack) you also have the possibility to choose the PHP version to install:

But as you should already know, not all versions support the latest default authentication method in MySQL 8.0: caching_sha2_password [1], [2], [3].

Most of the PHP applications are using mysqli and mysqlnd

MySQL dump & load InnoDB Buffer Pool

For performance, having a warm InnoDB Buffer Pool is very important. What does that mean ?

A warm buffer pool means that the most used pages (working set) required by the production workload are already loaded in memory (in the buffer pool). If so, MySQL doesn’t need to read the pages from disk every time it requires the most used page and speeds up the process when the needed data is already in memory.

When you start MySQL, by default the InnoDB Buffer Pool is cold and the warm up process can even take days sometimes…

So, you can already deduce that restarting mysqld is a source of having a cold Buffer Pool as it will start empty. Another reason to have a non optimal Buffer Pool is to load it unnecessary pages. This can happen during a logical dump or load. If you regularly do a mysqldump for example (don’t forget that MySQL Shell dump & load is better if you do logical dumps, but introduces also the …

Deploy your own PHP application on OCI and MDS

Recently, I wrote several articles about how to deploy popular Open Source applications on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure and MySQL Database Service.

Today we will see how you can deploy your own LAMP stack application using the same technique where L will stand for a compute instance (and why not the Ampere always free trier?), A stays Apache and will run in that compute instance. M stands for MySQL Database Service and P for PHP.

As usual we start by deploying a Stack by just clicking on the deploy button from GitHub:

The we are directly redirected to OCI’s dashboard and we need to accept the Terms of Use:

As soon …

Use Matomo Website Analytics on OCI with MDS

Matomo is a Google Analytics alternative for your websites. If you follow my blog, you know how easy it’s to deploy popular Open Source web solutions like WordPress, Joomla!, Drupal, Moodle, Magento on OCI. If this is not yet your case, please check this page: deploy on OCI.

All these solutions are using MySQL Database Service to store their data.

I’ve recently added a new stack to also deploy Matomo. Of course this can be a standalone installation to collect all your analytics from self-hosted websites, but today I will describe you how to use it with an existing stack we already deployed on OCI.

For this example, I deployed WordPress using the following stack: …

Deploy Moodle on OCI with MDS

Moodle is the world’s most popular learning management system. Moodle is Open Source and of course it’s compatible with the most popular Open Source Database : MySQL !

I’ve already posted an article on how to install Moodle on OCI before we released MySQL Database Service. In this article we will see how to deploy Moodle very easily in OCI and using MDS.

Once again we will use the easiest way to deploy an complete architecture on OCI: Resource Manager.

We will then use a stack I’ve created that is available on GitHub This stack includes Terraform code allowing to deploy different architectures that we can use for Moodle. I’ve tried to cover the main possible architecture directly in the stack. …
