MariaDB to Hadoop in Spanish

Nicolas Tobias has written an awesome guide to setting up replication from MariaDB to Hadoop/HDFS using Tungsten Replicator, in Spanish! He’s planning more of these so if you like what you see, please let him know!

Semana santa y yo con nuevas batallas que contar.
Me hayaba yo en el trabajo, pensando en que iba a invertir la calma que acompa;a a los dias de vacaciones que libremente podemos elegir trabajar y pense: No seria bueno terminar esa sincronizacion entre los servidores de mariaDB y HIVE?

Ya habia buscado algo de info al respecto en Enero hasta tenia una PoC montada con unas VM que volvi a encender, pero estaba todo podrido: no arrancaba, no funcionba ni siquiera me acordaba como lo habia hecho y el history de la shell er un galimatias. Decidi que si lo rehacia todo desde cero iba a poder dejarlo escrito en un playbook y ademas, aprenderlo y automatizarlo hasta el limite de poder desplegar de forma automatica on …

Random human recognizable dataset

We all do need sometimes to generate raw valid dummy data for our use cases and applications as we start them. Obviously, one can write their own scripts to generate random data, but it is much better to have data, to which human beings can associate with like names, addresses instead of having them filled with random "lorem ipsum" string data :)

While searching for such a tool, I found a site which does exactly this:


This can also be downloaded and installed locally. It supports three types of installations:
- A single, anonymous user account
- A single user account, requires login
- Multiple accounts

Below is the set of wide varied data types it supports for …

Taxonomy of database tools

Taxonomy of Database Tools

In the MySQL ecosphere there is an ecosystem of tools.  Like real-world ecosystems, the “creatures” in the MySQL tools ecosystem can be classified and organized by a taxonomy.  There are already multiple taxonomies of software bugs (e.g. A Taxonomy of Bugs), but as far as I know this is the first Taxonomy of Database Tools.  A taxonomy of database tools serves useful purposes, as discussed in the previously linked page.  For me, the most useful purpose is the high-level ecosystem view which I use to compare MySQL tools to  …

How to select random rows in MySQL

The easiest way to generate random rows in MySQL is to use the ORDER BY RAND() clause. SELECT col1 FROM tbl ORDER BY RAND() LIMIT 10; This can work fine for small tables. However, for big table, it will have a serious performance problem as in order to generate the list of random rows, MySQL […]

MySQL Random Data Selection

Some days ago I was working in a vocabulary game and dictionary. The dictionary contains 1,10,000 words and meanings. I developed a vocabulary game where I had to randomly choose 10 words out of 1,10,000 dataset. Here I’m describing the possible solutions for retrieving 10 random words from 1,10,000…  Read Full Article

Setting the MySQL Sandbox prompt

This is far from deeply technical but little things that should be simple but aren’t annoy me. I found that MySQL Sandbox --prompt_prefix and --prompt_body don’t “just work.” I wanted the prompt to be mysql \v> . So I tried:

make_sandbox_from_source /mysql/src/mysql-4.0.30 single --prompt_body=' \v> '
sh: -c: line 0: syntax error near unexpected token `newline'
sh: -c: line 0: `make_sandbox /mysql/src/mysql-4.0.30/4.0.30 --prompt_body= \v> '

Maybe my shell knowledge is more terrible than I realize so I verified that ‘ \v> ‘ does not need special escaping:

echo ' \v> '

Ok, so clearly it’s the fault of make_sandbox_from_source. I tried and tried to do this on the command line but …
