Howto connect to MySQL using a client certificate

More and more people are requesting how they could connect to MySQL without using a password but using a SSL certificate. Known as X509.

CA Certificate

A CA certificate is a digital certificate issued by a certificate authority (CA). It’s used by clients to verify the SSL certificates sign by this CA.

Such certificates is usually paid and needs to be manually installed with MySQL Server. But by default, MySQL generates a self-signed certificate and provides its own CA.

For obvious reason, I will use the certificates that have been auto-generated by MySQL on my system. However, for production, I encourage you to have a real CA signed certificate.

The CA certificate is called ca.pem and is located in MySQL’s datadir (/var/lib/mysql/ca.pem on Oracle Linux, RHEL, Fedora, CentOS, …).

In case you don’t know where your ca.pem is located, you can …

Journée MySQL Innovation et Cloud

Next week, November 16th, I will participate to the MySQL Innovation and Cloud Virtual Day in French.

My colleagues will present what’s new in MySQL 8.0.31 and also summarize all the big news that was announced at Oracle Cloud World in Las Vegas.

Attendees will learn about the MySQL HeatWave offering in OCI.

I will be presenting something that is only available in MySQL on-prem and in OCI as a managed service: MySQL Document Store.

The event is in French and attendees will have the opportunity to discuss and chat with MySQL experts (included Olivier!!) during the event.

Registration is required to attend this free event: Register Here.

On se voit la semaine prochaine !

Generating Slow Query Log with MySQL Shell

Recently, I wrote three articles on how to analyze queries and generate a slow query log for MySQL Database Service on OCI:

In these post, we were generating a slow query log in text or JSON directly in Object Storage.

Today, we will see how we can generate …

Intersect and Except in MySQL 8.0

With the latest MySQL release (8.0.31), MySQL adds support for the SQL standard INTERSECT and EXCEPT table operators.

Let’s have a look how to use them.

We will use the following table:

CREATE TABLE `new` (
  `id` int NOT NULL AUTO_INCREMENT,
  `name` varchar(20) DEFAULT NULL,
  `tacos` int DEFAULT NULL,
  `sushis` int DEFAULT NULL,
  PRIMARY KEY (`id`)
) ENGINE=InnoDB

For our team meeting, we will order tacos and sushi’s.

Each record represent the order of each team member:

select * from new;
+----+-------------+-------+--------+
| id | name        | tacos | sushis | …

Analyzing queries in MySQL Database Service – Slow Query Log (part 2)

In the previous part, we created our application and our 2 functions.

Now we need to create an API Gateway to be able to call these functions from outside OCI. Using a third party scheduler, our laptop, etc…

Before creating the gateway, we need to create some policy to allow the API Gateway to call our functions. I’ve tried to create the policy after, it seems to not work as expected.

Security

Dynamic Group

We need to create a Dynamic Group that will match our gateway:

The matching rule is checking the type of resource that should be ApiGateway and my compartment’s id:

All {resource.type='ApiGateway', resource.compartment.id = 'ocid1.compartment.oc1..xxxxxxxxx'}

Policy …

Analyzing queries in MySQL Database Service – Slow Query Log (part 1)

In my previous post, I explained how to deal with Performance_Schema and Sys to identify the candidates for Query Optimization but also to understand the workload on the database.

In this article, we will see how we can create an OCI Fn Application that will generate a slow query log from our MySQL Database Service instance and store it to Object Storage.

The creation of the function and its use is similar to the one explained in the …

Analyzing queries in MySQL Database Service

If like me you are an old experienced MySQL DBA, to analyze your MySQL workload, you certainly have used the slow query log with long_query_time set to 0.

The slow query log is a file that contains all the queries whose execution time is greater than the value of long_query_time. This file can be huge and uses up all available disk space on busy systems.

Constantly writing to that file can also add an overhead to the server.

For those reasons, the slow query log is not available in MySQL Database Service (HeatWave) in OCI.

Plan B ?

As a DBA, what are my options for finding the queries that need to be optimized? As usual, the queries that consume the most time are the ones that need some attention

It can be a very long query or a short query executed too many times.

Currently the MySQL DBAs use …

OCI MySQL Database Service – Using a backup as source for a new instance

Let’s continue our journey of deploying the MySQL Database System on OCI with Terraform.
This time we will see how we can use a backup (see [1] and [2]) as a source (initial data) for a new instance.

Within the oci_mysql_mysql_db_system it’s possible to define a source detailing how to provision the initial data of the db system.

Let’s deploy a new MySQL Database Instance using a manual backup we made earlier:

We can also find the backup’s ocid using the oci cli command:

 $ oci mysql backup list …

MySQL 8.0 – Operations and Optimization (in Chinese)

Today I would share a nice book related to MySQL 8.0 for our Chinese users.

The original title of this book by Scott Yao, is MySQL 8.0 运维与优化

I had the chance to read parts of the book before it was published to have my comment on the back cover.

This book is very detailed with many examples on how to administer a MySQL server.
It covers the new features of MySQL 8.0 and Scott illustrates perfectly how to take advantage of them.

Reading the book, it is obvious that the author is an experienced MySQL DBA and is sharing his experience that many junior DBAs can certainly benefit from.

This is a very technical book, as I like, I really recommend it to all Chinese people and I hope to see it translated into English too.

And finally I would thanks Scott for having sent to me a hard signed copy of the …
