Error Logging in MySQL 8

Although only available as a Release Candidate, MySQL 8 is already proving itself to be a huge leap forward in many regards. Error logging is no exception. The MySQL development team just announced that they have redesigned the error logging subsystem to use a new component architecture.

The redesign will allow the filtering of log events, as well as the routing of error log output to multiple destinations, via the enabling of multiple sink components.  This will make it possible to send error log events to third-party systems for additional formatting and analysis.

In today’s blog, we’ll explore how to employ MySQL 8’s component-based error logging to achieve a variety of logging configurations. Note that all this is specific for MySQL 8 and is not available in earlier versions and also not in MariaDB. However, MariaDB has an option to write the error log to the system “syslog” on systemd-based Linux variants – …

Database Audit Log Monitoring for Security and Compliance

We recently conducted a webinar on Audit Log analysis for MySQL & MariaDB Databases. This blog will further provide a deep dive into the security & compliance surrounding databases.

Database auditing is the tracking of database resources utilization and authority, specifically, the monitoring and recording of user database actions. Auditing can be based on a variety of factors, including individual actions, such as the type of SQL statement executed, or on a combination of factors such as user name, application, time, etc.  Performing regular database log analysis bolsters your internal security measures by answering questions like who changed your critical data, when it was changed, and more. Database auditing also helps you comply with increasingly demanding compliance requirements.

Preview: Top MySQL 8 Features

Although there is no official software release for MySQL 8.0 as of yet, most insiders believe that it’s likely to arrive sometime in 2018.  In the meantime, Oracle has officially announced a tantalizing list of over two hundred new features!   We recently covered Replication Performance Enhancements.  Today’s blog will cover some of the other exciting enhancements we can expect when the production release of MySQL 8 hits the market.

New Database Roles

A role is a named collection of privileges that define what a user can and cannot do within a database. Roles play a vital part of database security by limiting who can connect to the server, access the database, or even access individual database objects and data.

Although prior to version 8, MySQL did provide a set of Privileges and Administrative Roles, the up-coming release will also support a set of flexible and properly …

Replication Performance Enhancements in MySQL 8

Although it feels like it was only yesterday that Oracle released version 5.7 of their acclaimed MySQL Community Server, version 8 is already available as a development milestone release (DMR). No, you didn’t sleep through a bunch of releases; MySQL is jumping several versions in its numbering due to 6.0 being dropped and 7.0 being reserved for the clustering version of MySQL. This new version boasts numerous changes (and bug fixes), one of the most exciting of which are replication enhancements. This blog will provide an overview of the new replication enhancements, including new replication timestamps, additional information reported by performance schema tables, and how replication delay has been reduced by updating the relationship between replication threads to make them more efficient.

Monitoring RDS MySQL Performance Metrics

Amazon Web Services (AWS) is a cloud platform that offers a wide variety of services including computing power, database storage, content delivery and other functionality that targets businesses of all sizes. One of their database solutions includes the Amazon Relational Database Service. Amazon RDS includes a number of popular RDBMSes, including Amazon Aurora, PostgreSQL, MySQL, MariaDB, Oracle, and Microsoft SQL Server, as well as tools to manage your databases and monitor their performance.

Despite the wide range of metrics available within the Amazon RDS console, there are some very good reasons for using your own monitoring tool(s) instead or in addition to those offered by Amazon RDS. For example, familiarity with your own tool(s) or access to features that Amazon RDS does not provide would constitute two persuasive reasons for employing a local tool.

With traditional software monitoring platforms such as Monyog still enjoying …
