Today we glad to announce release 1.0.3-5 of our XtraDB storage engine. Here is a list of enhancements in this release: move to MySQL 5.1.34 removed rw_lock patch, so we now use Google’s rw_locks fix crash after upgrade 5.1.31 -> 5.1.33 fix mysql-test Percona XtraDB 1.0.3-5 available in source and several binary packages. XtraDB is […]
These days I’m working with a customer who has an application based entirely on stored routines on MySQL side. Even though I haven’t worked much with stored procedures, I though it’s going to be a piece of cake. In the end – it was, but there’s a catch.
We made new binaries for MySQL 5.0.67 build 10 which include next fixes: We addressed concerns about potential logging and statistics overhead, so now you can fully turn on / off query statistics for microslow patch and user statistics in runtime. Next variables were added:
| slow_query_log | ON |
| slow_query_log_file | /var/lib/mysql/slow_query.log |
for compatibility with MySQL 5.1
| userstat_running | OFF |
to control gathering of user statistics.
With both slow_query_log = OFF and userstat_running = OFF […]
I have written before – MyISAM Does Not Scale, or it does quite well – two main things stopping you is table locks and global mutex on the KeyCache. Table Locks are not the issue for Read Only workload and write intensive workloads can be dealt with by using with many tables but Key Cache […]
Do you know that there are two limits about dirty (modified but not flushed to disk) blocks of InnoDB buffer pool? One is the limit of “amount”. The other is the limit of “age”. – limit of “amount” – As you know, buffer pool of InnoDB works as write-back cache of its datafiles. If the […]
As you likely have seen Sun has posted the new SpecJAppServer Results More information from Tom Daly can be found here These results are quite interesting for me as I worked on some of the previous SpecJAppServer Benchmarks several years ago while being employed by MySQL. These are great results, plus they can be relevant […]
I had an interesting tuning case few days ago. The system serving high traffic using Innodb tables would be stalling every so often causing even very simple queries both reads and writes taking long time to complete, with progress almost paused (dropping from thousands to tens of queries per second). On the surface the problem […]
Everyone does backups. Usually itâ€™s some nightly batch job that just dumps all MySQL tables into a text file or ordinarily copies the binary files from the data directory to a safe location. Obviously both ways involve much more complex operations than it would seem by my last sentence, but it is not important right […]
We gathered together our ideas of MySQL improvements on this page http://www.percona.com/percona-lab/dev-plan.html and we are going to implement some of them. My favorite one is – make InnoDB files .ibd (one created with –innodb-file-per-table=1) movable from one server to another, however it is sort of challenging. Probably next one patch we want to integrate is […]
The question I often get is how far MySQL may fall behind and how to keep replication from lagging. The lag you will see will vary a lot from application to the application and from load to load. Plus what is the most important within same application the lag will likely have spikes – most […]
