Fun with Bugs #57 - On MySQL Bug Reports I am Subscribed to, Part I

I've decided to stop reviewing MySQL Release Notes in this series, but it does not mean that I am not interested in MySQL bugs any more. At the moment I am subscribed to 91 active MySQL bugs reported by other MySQL users, and in this blog post I am going to present 15 of them, the most recently reported ones. I'd really want to see them fixed or at least properly processed as soon as possible.

In some cases I am going to add my speculations on how the bug had better be handled, or maybe highlight some important details about it. It is not my job any more to process/"verify" any community bug reports for any kind of MySQL, but I did that for many years and I've spent more than 5 years "on the other side", being a member of Community, so in some cases I let myself to share some strong opinion on what may be done …

MySQL Support Engineer's Chronicles, Issue #5

A lot of time passed since my previous post in this series. I was busy with work, participating in FOSDEM, blogging about profilers and sharing various lists of MySQL bugs. But I do not plan to stop writing about my usual weeks of doing support engineer's job. So, time for the next post in this series, based on my random notes taken during the week here and there.

This week started for me with checking recent MySQL bug reports (actually I do it every day). …

FOSDEM 2017 is over… this was again a great MySQL event !

FOSDEM 2017 is over, I brought back home the flu…. but hopefully not only !

Indeed this 2017 edition was very rewarding. We started our FOSDEM with a “fringe” : pre-FOSDEM MySQL Day where we highlighted MySQL 8.0 new features and hosted some talks from MySQL friends.

This first edition of the pre-FOSDEM MySQL Day was a great success. We had up to 70 attendees! I would like to thanks all the speakers: Morgan Tocker, Bernt Marius Johnsen, Øystein Grøvlen, Kenny Gryp, Jean-François Gagné, Dag H. Wanvik, …

More on MyRocks Performance for Bug #68079 Case

My previous post on MyRocks was intended to provide some background details for a couple of slides for my FOSDEM talk on profiling MySQL. The results and performance demonstrated by MyRocks vs InnoDB from MySQL 5.7.17 were not really important to show how perf helps to understand where the time was spent while executing of one specific query vs the other (with the same results, but different plan), but they still caused a lot of comments from people who care, so I decided to double check and clarify few more details.

First of all, it was …

Profiling MyRocks with perf: Good Old Bug #68079 Use Case

Almost a year ago I've got really interested in MyRocks and built MySQL from Facebook that provides it from source. Since that time I build it from fresh sources few times per week (as I've described in that post) and once in a while try to work with it and study some details or use cases. Today I'd like to discuss one of them that I've recently studied with perf profiler.

This is not only because I am going to talk about applying profilers to all kinds and forks of MySQL at FOSDEM 2017 MySQL & Friends …

MySQL Day – Sessions review #9

Let’s finish these pre-FOSDEM MySQL Day Sessions reviews with Kenny Gryp‘s talk on MySQL Group Replication.

Kenny is working at Percona as MySQL Practice Manager.

Group Replication went Generally Available end of 2016, it introduces a (virtually) ‘synchronous’ active:active multi-master replication, in addition to asynchronous and semi-synchronous replication, the latter 2 being available in in MySQL for longtime.

As with any new feature, and especially with introducing active:active multi-master replication, it takes a while before companies are adopting the software in production database environment.
For example, even though MySQL 5.7 has been GA for more than a year, adoption is only starting to increase recently.

We can, and should, expect the same from Group …
