I’ve been woefully neglectful of my responsibilities to post regularly about Percona Live MySQL Conference and Expo 2013 (PLCME 2013), but here’s some highlights of what I am planning to attend from the schedule. Read to the very bottom for the chance to win a free full pass to the conference! When picking talks to attend, […]
I just realized that we haven’t blogged a list of our sessions at the O’Reilly MySQL Conference and Expo (#mysqlconf) yet. Here is a hopefully complete list.
We have a special Friends of Percona discount code that you can use to get 20% off of registration at the MySQL conference in April: mys11pkb. If you click the image to the left, or this special link, it will pre-fill the code for you when you check out. Read on to see the list […]
Few days ago I was working on a case where we needed to modify a lot of data before pushing it to sphinx – MySQL did not have a function to do the thing so I thought I’ll write MySQL Stored Function and we’ll be good to go. It worked! But not so well really […]
After having reviewed the definition my the previous post (The definitions), the next step is to respond to some questions. Do you need MySQL High-Availability? That question is quite obvious but some times, it is skipped. It can also be formulated “What is the downtime cost of the service?”. In the cost, you need to […]
The OSCON 2009 is taking place next week and we have bunch of talks we’re presenting. I am presenting Full Text Search with Sphinx, MySQL Community Patches and Extensions and Goal Driven Performance Optimization. Vadim and Ryan have a talk XTraDB OpenSource Storage Engine for MySQL. This month OSCON is taking place in Silicon Valley […]
We have now published presentations from OpenSQLCamp at Percona Presentation pages Percona MySQL Patches is a great presentation to see Percona Patches for MySQL in action, showing how you can use them to get more understanding of your server load and improve server performance, as well as how they can improve performance all together. Sphinx […]
Our customers or prospective customers often ask us how we do a performance audit (it’s our most popular service). I thought I should write a blog post that will both answer their question, so I can just reply “read all about it at this URL” and share our methodology with readers a little bit. This […]
So I’m back from OSCON 2008. As usually it is fun conference to attend. Though I could only come for couple of days (Wed/Thu) as things are too busy here. Same as previous year I would note the conference is not as much backend and high performance focused as MySQL Conference or even Velocity, though […]
Percona, the company maintaining MySQL Performance Blog has a good presence on the conference this year. We have me (Peter), Vadim, Aurimas, Baron and Andrew attending the show. Alexey had to stay because he could not get Visa in time and Maciek is staying to be able to reliably service emergencies arising with our customers.
