The Debian project announced their 15th release, code name Buster, on July 6th 2019. Debian 10 ships with MariaDB 10.3 and Galera. There is no separate MariaDB Connector C package, but instead MariaDB 10.3 includes MariaDB Connector C 3.0. Like most other popular Linux distributions, Debian prefers MariaDB over the Oracle owned alternative and this […]
In the last few months, I had to install Percona Server 5.7 (PS5.7) on Debian a few times. I was regularly annoyed by apt-get -y install percona-server-server-5.7 prompting me for a password. But that annoyance did not push me to investigate the subject in detail: it was always a quick manual fix and Googling did not lead to a straightforward solution. However in the last days, I had to
This tutorial shows the installation of a Nginx web server on Debian 9 together with MySQL or MariaDB as database, PHP 7 and free Let's encrypt SSL certificate. Nginx web server is known for its stability, rich feature set, simple configuration, and low resource consumption.
Update: I included the results for when PCID is disabled, for comparison, as a worse case scenario.
After learning about Meltdown and Spectre, I waited patiently to get a fix from my OS vendor. However, there were several reports of performance impact due to the kernel mitigation- for example on the PostgresQL developers mailing list there was reports of up to 23% throughput loss; Red Hat engineers report a regression range of 1-20%, but setting OLTP systems as the worse type of workload. As it will be highly dependent on the hardware and workload, I decided of doing some test myself for the …[Read more]

In the latest stable version of Debian, if you ask to install mysql-server, you now get installed mariadb automatically, with no (evident) way of installing Oracle’s MySQL. Any major version upgrade has to be done carefully (not only for MariaDB, but also for MySQL and Postgres), and I bet that a MySQL 5.5 to MariaDB 10.1 will cause a huge confusion. Not only it will fail user expectations, I think this will cause large issues now that MariaDB has chosen to become a “hard” fork, and become incompatible in many ways with MySQL. Not only the server upgrade will cause user struggle, the connector is …[Read more]
The Debian project has today announced their 9th release, code named “Stretch”. This is a big milestone for MariaDB, because the release team decided to ship and support only one MySQL variant in this release, and MariaDB was chosen over MySQL. This is prominently mentioned in the press release about Debian 9 and more information […]
