Now you might be thinking...what's an Online Forum? Well, think of it as a virtual conference, where you can attend a series of presentations about a given topic, from the comfort of your own office/home. On Wednesday March 16th, from 9.00 am PT to 12.00, we will be running the first ever MySQL Online Forum, dedicated to MySQL on Windows. Register now to learn how you can reduce your database TCO on Windows by up to 90% while increasing manageability & flexibility!
I have been doing quite a lot of benchmarking recently.
I needed to find a safe way of measuring the time spend by the database doing a long task, like catching up on a huge backlog of accumulated replication updates. The problem with measuring this event is that I can record when it starts, but I can't easily detect when it finishes. My initial approach was to monitor the database and count the tables rows to see when the task was done, but I ended up affecting the task performance with my additional queries. So I thought of another method.
On March 29th, I’ll be giving a webinar whose title is “Understanding HandlerSocket – A NoSQL PlugIn For MySQL”. This is a continuation and extension of the talk I gave during the Percona Live Event in San Francisco back in February. We’ll ask, and answer, the following questions: What is HandlerSocket? Where does HandlerSocket fit [...]
If you use a Mac, and you are dealing with many similar tasks at once, like examining many database servers in different terminals, you may like this one.
I have been using iTerm 2 for a while, and my handling of parallel tasks has improved a lot. (No, I am not talking about Parallel replication, although I have applied this trick while testing that technology as well.)
In a few weeks, I will be on the road, for an intense set of presentations in the USA.
I will start the tour at the San Francisco MySQL User Group. On April 7, at 6pm I will talk about Advanced MySQL replication for the masses. This talk will explore topics such as bi-directional replication, multiple sources, parallel replication, seamless failover, with the help of Tungsten replicator.
Welcome to the weekly roundup and progress report. What’s new this week in Percona Server: As you might have seen, we released Percona Server 5.1.55-12.6. This release also updated our repositories for Debian Squeeze. We’re enhancing the PROCESSLIST to include columns for rows examined, sent, and read. This can be useful for understanding how much [...]
The title of the talk is “How better indexes save you money”. Saving money? Hey sure thing :) I’m in Ronald.
For those of you who do not know Ronald Bradford, he’s an Oracle Ace Director in the MySQL field, a long time community contributor and a MySQL expert.
For all those in New York this is an upcoming MySQL presentation held in conjunction with our colleagues at General Assembly on March 22nd 2011.
