This presentation was done by Sheeri Cabral of The Pythian Group and went into how to use SHOW ENGINE INNODB STATUS to get more information about your Innodb tables, foreign keys and transactions. This is a great presentation to learn how InnoDB works.
Welcome to the 162nd edition of Log Buffer, the weekly review of database blogs.
On the 23rd of June 2008, I wrote a note saying that I had just joined Pythian. Today I am posting a similar, but different, note saying that as of the last of September, I will no longer be employed by Pythian, the time has come to look for new challenges. Although I am sad to leave, I do look forward to the future and what it may hold for me.
By popular demand, here is my tour of our new World Headquarters. We moved in today! We’re very proud of it and I’m sure if you check out the video you’ll agree it is pretty Shaktastic. :)
I’ve been just sending the abstracts for UKOUG 2009 Conference before the extended deadline is over and realized that I hadn’t spread those exciting news. Actually, the news spread via Twitter before I saw the official confirmation in my inbox. Well, I guess the blog post title says it all. It’s a pleasure to join this program and get engaged in its activities.
This is the 149th edition of Log Buffer, the weekly review of database blogs.
Paul Vallée, Pythian’s founder and Executive Chairman really opened our eyes. Paul talks about Oracle’s 11G features with the same enthusiasm he has for MySQL’s federated architecture, or for SQL Server’s peer-to-peer replication technology. You could hardly find anybody who presents his visionary views of the new technology trends like cloud computing, virtualization, or server consolidation with such a deep understanding of the topics. Here is your opportunity to confer with Paul Vallée on Thursday, June 4, 2009 12:00 PM–1:00 PM CEST (11AM–12:00 PM GMT) in a free webinar, Database Platform Migration.
Yesterday, The Pythian Group issued a press release about my book, MySQL Administrator’s Bible, Pythian’s partnership with Sun, and our new “MySQL Adoption Accelerator Package”. I am not a marketing guru, but I can tell you what we the package means in terms of new work that the MySQL teams have been doing.
A year ago, the outline was being written. A lot of work was crammed into the intervening months, and I am happy and proud to announce that the MySQL Administrator’s Bible has been published, and is sitting on the shelf at many major booksellers already. The official publication date is today — Monday, May 11th, 2009 — although some stores have had copies for a week, including Amazon.com.
Augusto Bott and myself had a wonderful time at April’s MySQL Conference in Santa Clara, California, and also at the coinciding MySQL Camp and Percona Performance Conference. We presented two sessions at the conference, and we wanted to share the slides with you. The first one is called Proactive Operational Measures. The second one is called 8 Simple Rules to Design Secure Applications.
