The only rules for the hackday are: make something cool, keep it simple, document it, learn something and have fun. In general it means time is […]

I have a difficult task of making this post interesting, helpful and personal at the same time. I think the main goal is to balance these aspects, and I really appreciate your comments and suggestions that I will add here. For the busy readers who may be put off by the length of this post, here is a very short summary: I spent 4 wonderful years, first as the head of Field Services, then as a CTO, I believe it is now time for a change, so I am leaving SkySQL. I am leaving behind a great company and very good friends, but I am not disappearing completely, and I will continue supporting the work I started and the projects I created with the help of such great people. For many, leaving a company is not easy, and it is extremely difficult if you have contributed to its creation and development since the beginning. Even more difficult is to depart from ideas and projects that you have shaped and …[Read more]

MySQL 5.5.38 was recently released (it is the latest MySQL 5.5, is GA), and is available for download here:
This release, similar to the last 5.5 release, is mostly uneventful.
Out of the mere 13 bugs, most were benign, but I thought there were two worth mentioning (just because one is a slight performance improvement for InnoDB, and the other relates to slave consistency, so always important to see if it could affect you):
- InnoDB: For each insert, memset would be called three times to allocate memory for system fields. To reduce CPU usage, the three memset calls are now combined into a single call. (Bug #17858679, Bug #71014)
- Replication: When …
MariaDB 5.5.38 was recently released (it is the latest MariaDB 5.5), and is available for download here:

- Includes all bugfixes and updates from MySQL 5.5.38
- XtraDB updated to the version from Percona Server 5.5.37-35.0
- TokuDB updated to version …
MySQL 5.6.19 was recently released (it is the latest MySQL 5.6, is GA), and is available for download here.
I should actually call this post “5.6.18 and 5.6.19 Overview and Highlights”.
The 5.6 “Release Notes” Index provides an entry/changelog for 5.6.18 and says it was released 2014-04-11. However, it’s not available in the community download archives. This isn’t mentioned in the 5.6.18 changelogs, but it is in the 5.6.19 changelogs, where it says:
“There is no MySQL …[Read more]
It was announced that MariaDB is now the default implementation of MySQL in the newly released Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.

And mention of MariaDB replacing MySQL as the default implementation is referenced in their release notes here.
The full change log entry reads:
- MariaDB is the default implementation of MySQL in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7. MariaDB is a community-developed fork of the MySQL database project, and provides a replacement for MySQL. MariaDB preserves API and ABI compatibility with MySQL and adds …
Have you ever wondered exactly does log_warnings=2 log? Well, I have, and finally decided to check the code. (The manual used to mention setting this to 2 for diagnosing some connection-related problems, but I didn’t run into that comment in my most recent search.)
Basically, in recent 5.6 source code, we find “log_warnings > 1″ in 7 files. In 5.5 source, it is only in 5 files. Here are the 7 files in 5.6:
filesort.cc (line 460) log_event.cc (lines 4873, 10020, 11209) rpl_master.cc (line 912) rpl_rli_pdb.cc (lines 1538, 1596, 1735, 2066) rpl_slave.cc (lines 3585, 4684, 5405, 5436) sql_acl.cc (lines 9591, 9613, 11351) sql_connect.cc (line 791)
Long story short, the main (most common) ones are when a filesort fails (filesort.cc) or a failed login occurs (sql_acl.cc). Then there are some replication-specific instances where it logs extra info, such as master/slave/binlog info, “ignored” errors, and some summary …[Read more]
