MySQL Community Server 5.0.67 has been released. Important functionality added or changed includes:
MySQL 6.0.6-alpha, a new version of the MySQL database system has been released. MySQL 6.0 includes two new storage engines: the transactional Falcon engine, and the crash-safe Maria engine.
The Maria storage engine is a crash safe version of MyISAM. Maria supports all of the main functionality of the MyISAM engine, but includes recovery support (in the event of a system crash), full logging (including CREATE, DROP, RENAME and TRUNCATE operations), all MyISAM row formats and a new Maria specific row format. Changes include:
The MySQL Developer Tools team is working on version 5.1 in parallel while we keep constantly improving version 5.0 and fixing remaining bugs. We managed to close 24 bugs since the last release 06/25/2008. Unfortunately due to a bug in our auto-update feature, we had to disable it for previous versions - so please download and install the release manually this time, sorry for the inconvenience.
A new connector has been made available: MySQL Connector/C++. The MySQL Connector/C++ provides a C++ API for connecting client applications to the MySQL Server. The MySQL Connector/C++ mimics the JDBC 3.0 API. Using MySQL Connector/C++ instead of the MySQL C API (MySQL Client Library) offers the following advantages for C++ users:
I still remember the day. I was working for a large systems integrator on a very major account, and had responsibility for some DB2 databases, but also had the unfortunate duty of also taking care of some legacy IMS databases (hierarchical IBM databases used quite a lot 'back in the day'), which I knew next to nothing about. One morning I was asked to make a small change to a very large and prominent IMS database - just remove one record - what could go wrong?
MySQL can be used with multiple programming languages, but PHP is probably the most popular choice. MC Brown of the MySQL Docs team has synced the MySQL-related parts of the PHP documentation with the MySQL Reference Manual.
The following blog posts are from PlanetMySQL. PlanetMySQL is an aggregation of blogs and news from MySQL developers, users and employees. It is an excellent source of all things MySQL, including technical tips and best practices.
It should come as no surprise to readers of this blog that I really like ZFS. Personally I think it is one of the biggest developments in file system design in many, many years. One place where I've started to use it recently on my own home server is to make instant and consistent backups of my MySQL databases.
A system is not a system unless it can be monitored and controlled...I recall something like that from a university course in Control Theory. However, in a couple of blogs on I am going to give some ideas on how to monitor and control MySQL Cluster.
The following maintenance jobs are typically run against a MySQL database:
A backup is not a typical maintenance job. But it behaves more or less like one. The backup should be done regularly depending on the restore/PITR (Point in Time Recovery) requirements.
My first project at Facebook was a tad more involved then I was expecting, but I think that is one reason why we have such a great engineering organization; we have a lot of hard problems to solve and everyone here is excited to jump in and tackle them. I set out to really understand why we were building a new datacenter and what problems we had to overcome to make it work.
Being able to use an Open Source DBMS to manage your data is nice, but what good would it be if you can't easily access it from your applications? One key factor to the popularity of MySQL is probably its wide range of available language bindings, which started with support for C, PHP and Perl from early on. I've tried to gather a list of languages and their respective MySQL drivers/modules below.
So, you have a binlog. You want to find out something specific that happened inside of it. What to do? mysqlbinlog has some neat features, which I thought we would look at here.
The big reasons most people are going to salivate over 5.1, and probably start plans to upgrade now, are the online operations.
GlassFish and MySQL bundle was released a while ago and I finally got a chance to try it out. This blog post contains simple instructions to get you started.
One of the biggest problems I faced as a field DBA was defending For MySQL DBAs the challenge to identify and isolate resource intensive SQL code is really two-fold; job #1 is to find the offending code (after that the chore becomes fixing it so it performs, but that is a topic for another post)

This paper goes under the covers of the first high-performance appliance for MySQL from Kickfire. Specifically, you will learn how Kickfire's first-of-a-kind SQL chip combined with its columnar-based storage engine overcome the I/O and von Neumann bottlenecks - the two main barriers to high performance reporting and analytics. The result is an appliance, purpose-built for MySQL, that delivers 10-1000X performance improvement over general-purpose hardware.
