Is Galera trx_commit=2 and sync_binlog=0 evil?

It has been almost 5 years since I posted on my personal MySQL related blog. In the past few years I have worked for Severalnines and blogging both on their corporate blog and here would be confusing. After that I forgot and neglected this blog a bit, but it’s time to revive this blog!

Speaking at Percona Live Europe – Amsterdam 2019

Why? I will be presenting at Percona Live Europe soon and this blog and upcoming content is the more in-depth part of some background stories in my talk on benchmarking: Benchmarking should never be optional. The talk will mainly cover why you should always benchmark your servers, clusters and entire systems.

If you wish to see me present, you can receive 20% discount using this code: CMESPEAK-ART. Now let’s move on to the real …

‘Woz on your mind?’ Share your questions for Steve Wozniak during his Percona Live keynote!

Here’s your chance to get on stage with Woz! Sort of. Apple co-founder and Silicon Valley icon and philanthropist Steve Wozniak will participate in a moderated Q&A on creativity and innovation April 14 during the Percona Live MySQL Conference and Expo in Santa Clara, California.

Woz once said that he never intended to change the world. That was the other Steve, Steve Jobs.

“I didn’t want to start this company,” Woz told the Seattle Times of Apple’s beginnings in a 2006 interview. “My goal wasn’t to make a ton of money. It was to build good computers. I only started the company when I realized I could be an engineer forever.”

What would you ask Woz if given the opportunity?

“Woz, what first sparked your interest in engineering?”
“Hey Woz, how did you come up with …

Presenting Sphinx Search at Percona Live London

It has been a while since I posted on this blog. The more in depth articles are all posted on the Spil Games Engineering blog and I’m overcrowded with work in the past months that I hardly have any time left.

One of the reasons for having too much on my plate was my own doing: I volunteered to be a conference committee member for Percona Live London and we, as a committee, worked our way through all proposals while you all were enjoying your holidays in the sun. Well, I must admit I did review a couple of them sitting in the sun, next to the pool enjoying a cold drink.
I must say there were so many great proposals it was really hard to choose which ones would be left out.

I also proposed a talk for Percona Live London this year and my fellow committee members liked it enough to make it to the final schedule: …

Probably the best European conference on MySQL is coming this fall

The full schedule for Percona Live London 2014 was revealed earlier this month.
Congratulation to all selected speakers and a big thanks to those who submitted a talk.

I have many reasons to believe that this conference will be a very good year.
Let me explain why

A community event made by community members

If you didn’t know who selected the talks for the conference, have a look to the conference committee page.
This committee is a perfect mixed between community members and evangelists.
As chairman of this conference, I can say that these guys made an amazing job to rate and comment this huge amount of  submitted talks.

I particularly want to point out that despite the commitment of some …

Presenting at FOSDEM and Percona Live

Very short update from my side: I’ll be presenting at FOSDEM in Brussels (1-2 February 2014) and Percona Live MySQL Conference in Santa Clara (1-4 April 2014).

Percona Live London is already next Monday!

I’m currently wrapping up last things in the office to be prepared for my presentation about MySQL-Statsd at the Percona Live London conference next week. It will be a revised version of the talk I gave at the Percona Live Conference & Expo in Santa Clara, but this time it will be more focussed to the practical side and, obviously, the MySQL-Statsd daemon we open sourced recently, so if you missed that talk or think a follow up is needed you should definitely attend! Slides will also become immediately available after the talk.

I’m also looing forward to attend a lot of other talks, for instance The Shard Revisited: Tools and Techniques Used at Etsy and …

Spil Games MySQL StatsD project on Github

Yesterday evening I already announced the happy news on the Spil Games Engineering blog, you can find our MySQL StatsD daemon in our Github repository here:
https://github.com/spilgames/mysql-statsd

It is far from perfect and the todo list is still long. You are, as it is a public repo, welcome to collaborate with us and make it even better. I can’t wait to see the first pull-request coming in!

You can also talk to us directly at Percona Live London where we will bring a revised version of our talk at Santa Clara. This time it will be aimed more at the practicality: It will contain less comparison with existing tools, be less …

MySQL Conference and Expo 2013 feelings (#perconalive)

I wasn’t at the MySQL Conference this year but it was very nice to follow this event from Paris.
Of course I didn’t feel the general atmosphere by visiting booths or met fabulous people.
But it was a great opportunity to offer you a live post about the conference with an external point of view.

Twitter, RSS feeds (yes Google, I still use RSS), Planet MySQL and infiltrators were my best friends during this crazy week.

I would like to summarize the major announcements and events occurs during this tenth edition.
 

Oracle at Percona Live!

 
Yes, Oracle was at Percona Live 2013 and it was for the best.
I invite you to watch this keynote from …

MySQL Community Contributor of the Year 2013

First of all, thank you to everyone who nominated me, voted for me, and to those of you who shared kind words with me and congratulated me. It’s humbling to have been awarded one of the “MySQL Community Contributor of the Year” awards for 2013. Many people have asked or wondered without asking why I do what I do, and how I got here. Given the occasion, I thought I would share some thoughts on that.

Early days as a user in web development

I started working with MySQL (and before that, mSQL) back in 1998 while working with a web development company. MySQL worked quite well (and I pretty quickly forgot about mSQL), and I started to learn more and more about it. As many new users at the time, I hit a few bugs or quirks, and poked at the code from time to time to understand what was going on. I continued just being a user of MySQL into 1999, and started to build more and more complex applications.

A first bug …
