common_schema: DBA's framework for MySQL

2 April 2:20PM - 3:10PM @ Ballroom G

Experience level: 
50 minutes conference
This session introduces the common_schema project: a self contained schema which leverages the DBA and the developer capabilities through a set of sophisticated views, routines and a specialized scripting language (QueryScript), simplifying MySQL server administration and analysis. common_schema is aimed to be imported onto any MySQL server, on any platform. Along with INFORMATION_SCHEMA and PERFORMANCE_SCHEMA, common_schema becomes a valuable tool for one's server. In this session we will see how common_schema adds new capabilities to the MySQL server or otherwise makes complex tasks easy. We will review: * How to install (import) common_schema * Schema analysis views * Process & security views and routines * Status monitoring and transaction analysis * SQL generating views and eval() * QueryScript: an SQL based scripting language * Schema versioning and migration common_schema is free and open source.
