The North Texas MySQL Users Group will be meeting on October 8th in the Irving office. At the last meeting, the several members wanted to learn more on MySQL replication and that is how we came up with a subject for the meeting.
The Percona Toolkit team is happy to announce the release of Percona Toolkit version 2.1.4. This is the fifth stable release in the 2.1 series, and primarily a bug-fix release; We suggest that users upgrade to the latest version of the tools.
The complete list of changes is on the Launchpad milestone for 2.1.4, but here are some highlights the release:

Not so long ago Fusion-io announced an SDK which provides direct API access to Fusion ioMemory(tm) in addition to providing a native filesystem (directFS) with a goal to avoid overhead from kernel and regular Linux filesystems: ext4 and xfs. This requires a support from application, it should use special calls for IO. With help from Fusion-io, we provide source code of Percona Server which uses direct API access.

In this post I’m focussing on the replication utilities but you can also refer to the full MySQL Utilities documentation.

Not so far ago Fusion-io announced SDK which provides direct API access to Fusion ioMemory(tm) in addition to providing a native filesystem (directFS) with a goal to avoid overhead from kernel and regular Linux filesystems: ext4 and xfs. Fusion-io will explain these features during our Percona Live New York conference and share performance numbers.
I will be hosting a Birds of a Feather Session at MySQL Connect on Saturday, Sep 29, 7:00 PM – 8:00 PM – Hilton San Francisco – Golden Gate 8. This is an open discussion with you about what you would like to see from the MySQL Community Team, MySQL, and Oracle in the future. After it concludes, we can hit the Community Reception.
