Patrik SallnerAs we start the beginning of our FY15, I want to thank all our customers, partners, staff, and community members for their contributions this past year. I'm proud of what we collectively achieved even as we drove significant changes in our business and organization. It's energizing to feel the momentum and enthusiasm building around MariaDB.


The MaxScale team have been working hard fixing bugs and improving performance. On Friday we released a update of MaxScale, the pluggable proxy for MySQL and MariaDB, I wanted to write a little about a few of those changes. I will not mention every change, there are release notes that give the list of bugs fixed in this version, but rather highlight a couple of performance related changes and describe the rationale behind them. However before I start on the two items I wanted to discuss just a quick note to say that this version introduces cmake as the means to build MaxScale.


The question seemed easy enough:

We've dropped a user, now we want to change the DEFINER on all database objects that currently have it set to this dropped user?

This should be possible by checking the INFORMATION_SCHEMA tables of the appropriate object types (routines, triggers, views and events) and performing an ALTER on each of them that just modifies the DEFINER but nothing else, right?

Tonight I will give a presentation on Max Scale (An Advanced Proxy for MySQL) for the Chicago MySQL Meetup

It's important to understand which Galera version you are running, for proper compatibility of MariaDB with the Galera replication library, and also to check which featureset you have access to. However, Galera version numbering can be difficult to decipher because of its complex scheme.

Version numbering in Galera consists of three different components:

Over the summer, SkySQL has taken big strides in our collaboration with strategic partners. Our relationship with IBM has deepened and broadened as the porting and optimization of MariaDB on Power8 servers has progressed. The performance results look very promising and this collaboration is already opening some very exciting discussions with lead customers.


We all know that persistence is a virtue. But with databases, persistence is everything! Thats why Red Hat and MariaDB have teamed up to embed MariaDB at the heart of OpenStack.

Auditing is an essential task for monitoring your database environment. Auditing information can help you troubleshoot performance or application issues, and lets you see exactly what SQL queries are being processed. MariaDB's Audit Plugin provides auditing functionality for not only MariaDB, but MySQL as well.

When you need a fast and reliable hosting solution, you should consider which web server and database system to use. Many sites find the combination of nginx (pronounced "engine x") and MariaDB to be an optimal solution. Let's see how to install and configure the applications to work together.
