This week was exciting from a Percona exposure standpoint. We were at Open Source Summit Europe. I gave two talks and participated in a panel, as the co-located event for the Open Source Entrepreneur Network happened on the last day as well. We had a booth, and it was great to hang out and talk with my colleagues Dorothée Wuest and Dimitri Vanoverbeke as well as all the attendees that popped by.
- Percona Server for MongoDB 3.4.9-2.9. The RocksDB library is now at 5.7.3, which you use with MongoRocks.
- Percona Monitoring and Management 1.4.0. You can now have external Prometheus exporters, so use it to create dashboards for monitoring other services not provided by PMM itself. Prometheus, Grafana and Consul have all been updated as well.
- SQLite 3.21.0. SQLite now has atomic write capabilities when the Flash-Friendly File System (F2FS) is available, which should provide greatly reduced transaction overhead.
- From GitHub: Mitigating replication lag and reducing read load with freno.
- A crashing bug in MySQL: the CREATE TABLE of death (more fun with InnoDB Persistent Statistics).
- The Future of RethinkDB. A podcast with Mike Glukhovsky (co-founder of RethinkDB). Spend 70 minutes to learn about the shutdown, getting purchased by the Cloud Native Computing Foundation and a lot more.
- Serverless computing: economic and architectural impact. Are you thinking more about the serverless movement?
- “Why We Built Our Own Distributed Column Store” by Sam Stokes. Our friends at Honeycomb gave an excellent talk about motivations around this.
