  • Introducing gh-ost: triggerless online schema migrations

    August 1, 2016

    I'm thoroughly happy to introduce gh-ost: triggerless, controllable, auditable, testable, trusted online schema change tool released today by GitHub. gh-ost now powers our production schema migrations. We hit some¬†serious limitations using pt-online-schema-change on our large volume, high traffic¬†tables, to the effect of driving our database to a near grinding halt or even to the extent […]

This is a list of technologies (and resources) in and around MySQL, and means to serve as a place to find reliable software and info.

    March 17, 2013

    mysqlsandbox is version-aware. The new 5.6 version, for example, requires special care because of the system InnoDB tables or otherwise modified system tables. At this moment, it will refuse to install MariaDB 10.0 (alpha): bash$ make_sandbox /tmp/mariadb-10.0.1-linux-x86_64.tar.gz unpacking /tmp/mariadb-10.0.1-linux-x86_64.tar.gz unsupported version 10.0 This is perfectly legitimate, and I have no quarrel with this fact. However, […]
