Fast data import trick

A few weeks ago my friend Frank de Jonge told me he managed to improve an import into a MySQL server down from more than 10 hours to 16 minutes. According to him it had to do with several field types (too long fields to really small data), the amount of indexes, and constraints on the tables. We were talking about 1 million records here. He wondered if it was possible to make it even faster.

The basics

Turns out there are many ways of importing data into a database, it all depends where are you getting the data from and where you want to put it. Let me give you a bit more context: you may want to get data from a legacy application that exports into CSV to your database server or even data from different servers.

If you are pulling data from a MySQL table into another MySQL table (lets assume they are into different servers) you might as well use …

Creating a Test Lab Using VirtualBox / NAT networking

My job is almost completely reliant upon my ability to perform work in lab of virtual machines. Almost every action plan I write is tested locally. When I need to troubleshoot an issue for a client one of the most common first steps I’ll perform is attempting to recreate the issue in a virtual environment so I can work on it there without the risk of impacting client data.

I believe that having a place to test and grow your skills is an absolute necessity for anyone working in the IT field today regardless of your specialization, even if you’re an IT generalist. But every now and then I hear about individuals who have issues with their virtual machines or with the virtual environment provided by their employer, so I figured this was a good time to share my method of creating a virtual lab. More specifically, one that allows you to do virtual work on a commodity laptop, one that won’t break down if you lose connectivity, one that …

For the brave: compiling Workbench 6.3 using Visual Studio 2013 on Windows

Compiling MySQL Workbench yourself is quite a common task for Linux users, even though the application is available precompiled for certain platforms ready from our download page and available in our yum and apt repositories. In this blog post we show you how to compile it on Windows.

Introduction

Doing a build on Windows is a totally different matter and most users never need to do that. It’s mostly intersting for those wanting own functionality or just being curious. But you should be an experienced Visual Studio user. It’s a complicated task and not a good start for a beginner. The key problem when building on Windows is that we cannot ship any 3rd party library we used. Instead you have to collect them all yourself. In order to ease that task we created the list below. Each library comes with a version number which usually specifies the minimum version to be used. Most of the time it’s not mandatory to use the exact …

How-To: Guide to Database Migration from MS Access using MySQL Workbench

Edit: added sample table output in MySQL

MySQL Workbench 6.2 introduces support for MS Access migration. This tutorial should help you get your Access tables, indexes, relationships and data in MySQL.

Preparation

Because MS Access ODBC drivers are only available for Windows, migrating from it is also only possible from Windows. As for the destination MySQL server, you can have it in the same local machine or elsewhere in your network.

MS Access stores relationship/foreign key information in an internal table called MSysRelationships. That table is protected against read access even to the Admin user, so if you try to migrate without opening up access to it, you will get an error like this:

[42000] [Microsoft][ODBC Microsoft Access Driver] Record(s) cannot be read; no read permission on 'msysobjects'. (-1907) (SQLExecDirectW)

The steps to grant read access to …
