Videos from the 2009 Percona Performance Conference are now available on www.percona.tv. Let us know which you like best so we can have some ideas for the 2010 conference!
I spoke at EdUIConf 2009, a new conference in my hometown of Charlottesville, Virginia. My presentation was on web interface performance; it’s basically a twist on front-end performance in general. I slanted the talk towards web developers, rather than assuming the audience has full control over their Apache configuration. The conference was relatively short — […]
This is just a public service announcement (reminder?) that LenZ and Giuseppe are planning OpenSQL Camp 2009, this time in Europe, which is great. It’ll be part of FrOSCon. I wish I could say that I’ll attend, but due to various unpredictabilities in my family, I can’t plan that far ahead. I don’t yet know […]

…any sessions this year; Peter, Vadim, and the rest of us at Percona submitted over a dozen session proposals, which were initially declined. As …Cabral is organizing.
That’s the back story — now on to the Percona Performance Conference! This is not “another MySQL conference.” It’s a performance…to Santa Clara.
We will not be the only ones speaking at Percona Performance Conference; other experts will join us in making presentations too. …to propose a session, please do so through the Percona Performance Conference website.
The Percona team looks forward to greeting you face to face …
A recurring and very common customer issue seen here at the Percona Support team involves how to make the ibdata1 file “shrink” within MySQL. I can only imagine there’s a degree of regret by some of the InnoDB architects on their design decisions regarding disk-space management by the shared tablespace* because this has been a big […]
On Wednesday I gave a presentation on “How to Avoid Even More Common (but Deadly) MySQL Development Mistakes” for Percona MySQL Webinars. If you missed it, you can still register to view the recording and my slides. Thanks to everyone who attended, and especially to folks who asked the great questions. I answered as many as we had […]
My previous post was an introduction to the TokuDB storage engine and aimed at explaining the basics of its design and how it differentiates from InnoDB/XtraDB. This post is all about motivating you to give it a try and have a look for yourself. Percona Server is not officially supporting TokuDB as of today, though the […]
During last April’s Percona Live MySQL Conference and Expo, TokuDB celebrated it’s first full-year as an open source storage engine. I still remember reading the official announcement and the expectations it created one year ago. The premises were very interesting as it had the potential of helping MySQL manage “big data” in a way InnoDB just […]
In my previous post about Hadoop and Impala I benchmarked performance of analytical queries in Impala. This time I’ve tried InfiniDB for Hadoop (open-source version) on the modern hardware with an 8-node Hadoop cluster. One of the main advantages (at least for me) of InifiniDB for Hadoop is that it stores the data inside the Hadoop cluster but uses the […]
