Migrating to XtraDB Cluster Webinar follow up questions

Thanks to all who attended my webinar today. The session was recorded and will be available to watch for free soon here.

There were a lot of great questions asked during the session, so I’d like to take this opportunity to try to answer a few of them:

The black vodka MySQL tradition

Many do not need any further introduction to this Monty tradition at MySQL events. For the New York Effective MySQL Meetup group this was a new experience for many that I had the opportunity to share at our recent meeting. In 12 months the group has grown to over 280 members, and now recent attendees have experienced black vodka first hand.

A special thanks to Monty Program AB and Colin Charles for providing the alcohol.

South America Speaking Events

Following my 2 presentations at SouthEast LinuxFest on Friday and Open DB Camp on Sunday in Charlotte, NC, I will then be speaking at the first Latin America MySQL event in Buenos Aires, Argentina later this month. This will include at least six MySQL Alumni and key presentations from MariaDB and Tokutek.

thread_concurrency doesn’t do what you expect

Over the last months I’ve seen lots of customers trying to tune the thread concurrency inside MySQL with the variable thread_concurrency. Our advice is: stop wasting your time, it does nothing on GNU/Linux :)

How expensive is USER_STATISTICS?

One of our customers asked me whether it’s safe to enable the so-called USER_STATISTICS features of Percona Server in a heavy-use production server with many tens of thousands of tables.

A case for MariaDB’s Hash Joins

MariaDB 5.3/5.5 has introduced a new join type “Hash Joins” which is an implementation of a Classic Block-based Hash Join Algorithm. In this post we will see what the Hash Join is, how it works and for what types of queries would it be the right choice. I will show the results of executing benchmarks for different queries and explain the results so that you have a better understanding of when using the Hash Join will be best and when not. Although Hash Joins are available since MariaDB 5.3, but I will be running my benchmarks on the newer MariaDB 5.5.
