Dockerizing MySQL step by step.


As a Database Engineer in Mydbops. We tend to solve multiple complex problems for our esteemed customers. To control the System resources and scale up /down based on needed we are evaluating Dockers and Kubernetes.

Docker is a set of platform as a service products that uses OS-level virtualization to deliver software in packages called Containers. Containers are isolated from one another and bundle their own software, libraries and configuration files; they can communicate with each other through well-defined channels.It’s more lightweight than standard Containers and boots up in seconds.

Docker also is easy to use when you need a simple, single instance. What is great about Docker though is that it allows configuring multiple versions of MySQL.

Docker Installation:

Docker can be installed with yum repository or apt-get repository based on your linux …

Integrating MySQL tools with Systemd Service

In my day to day tasks as a DB Engineer at Mydbops we have been using multiple MySQL tools for multiple use cases to ensure an optimal performance and availability for servers managed by our Remote DBA Team.

A tool like pt-online-schema can be used for any DDL changes ( Overview to DDL algorithm ), if any tool which needs to scheduled for longer period we tend to use screen or cron.

Some of the problems we face when we demonise the process or use screen for running processes.

  • The daemon process gets killed when the server reboot happens. …

A Linux Tool to Monitor Progress of MySQL Data Imports and Exports.

One problem I have experienced during logical exporting and importing databases is the tools don’t output any progress indicator (or anything at all really) and using the -v (verbose) switch outputs every single MySQL command being run from the import file. As, importing and exporting of databases  is one of the most frequent activity being performed , I Just felt the need of some tool that could help me check the approximate progress of import and export of databases going on.

So, I searched and fortunately could find a tool named Pipeviewer (PV) which allows a user to see the progress of data through a pipeline, by giving information such as time elapsed, percentage completed (with progress bar), current throughput rate, total data transferred, and ETA .

Installation :

On Centos and RHEL :

[root@vm1 vagrant]# yum install pv

[root@vm1 …

Recently one of our client approach Mydbops with Query slowness on a MySQL environment . They deployed the new code for generate the huge reports for the year end analytics data . After the deployment the queries were extremely slow and they struggled lot , then they approached us for the solution. After the analysis, their OLAP database as expected it was IO bound with 100% disk IOPS utilised during the report generation. So, the queries were starving for the Disk IO slows the process .

Problem statement :

  • Reports are majorly focused on two larger log tables ( emp_Report_model , emp_details ) .
  • The report generator (procedure) is using the count(*) statement to stimulate the aggregated data on each call. It is required for their business purpose .
  • Count(*) is terribly slow in MySQL ( Using MySQL 5.7 ) as it …

MySQL load data infile made faster .

Loading any large file into MySQL server using the LOAD DATA INFILE is a time consuming process , because it is single threaded and it is a single transaction too. But with modern hardwares system resource is not a bottle neck. At Mydbops we focus on improving the efficiency of process as we value performance more. MySQL introduced the parallel load data operations in its latest minor release MySQL 8.0.17 . I had the curiosity to test this feature and wanted to know, how it can improve the data loading comparing to the existing single threaded method  . Through this blog I am going to  compare the both methods .

Remember you can use the parallel data loading utility only via MySQL Shell .
