We all like when error messages are descriptive and give a clear idea about what is happening; however, there are some cases when a few possible reasons lay behind one error message. “MySQL server has gone away” is one of them. Most of the cases when the error occurs are described in MySQL documentation, but […]… Read more

Yes, I know, MyISAM is deprecated and unofficially discontinued by the vendors. But we still have from time to time customers using MyISAM and even evangelize for MyISAM… And to be honest in some cases MyISAM has even advantages (beside some huge disadvantages) over other Storage Engines (simple file copy, footprint, single-query latency, …). But most of our customers are not aware of these advantages and are using MyISAM just because they did it since ever… One of the biggest problems we see at customers is the MyISAM table lock behaviour. They claim things like the database stalls, crashes or… Read more

In this post I describe the various steps that allowed me to reach 3.6 million queries per second on a single VM instance using MySQL 8.0 with the help of Dynimize. It's not every day that you get to break a record. So when I discovered that you can now rent by the hour massive instances within Google Compute Cloud that support 224 virtual cores based on AMD EPYC 2 Rome processors, I had to jump at the opportunity to see what kind low hanging fruit might be out there. Low and behold I found it! The record for MySQL… Read more

I have previously written a blog post on the detailed steps involved in enabling PostgreSQL monitoring using PMM. In that post, you could see me talking about the role: pg_monitor that can be granted to monitoring users. The [crayon-5f69ffe6b5f39831119070-i/] role restricts a monitoring user from accessing user data but only grants access to statistic views […]… Read more

Percona Monitoring and Management (PMM) is an effective tool in tracking stats of the running MySQL servers. Especially, the timelines capability helps users to get the picture of how the given stats changes over tenure of the workload. PMM official packages are not yet available on ARM but part of the PMM (importantly the stats collector aka exporter) could be compiled on ARM that would facilitate reporting stats of the MySQL instance running on ARM to PMM-Server there-by allowing it to track MySQL on ARM….
