MySQL University: Backing up MySQL using file system snapshots

This Thursday (February 26th, 14:00 UTC), Lenz Grimmer will give a MySQL University session on Backing up MySQL using file system snapshots. Lenz is a member of the MySQL Community team and the maintainer of the mylvmbackup tool. mylvmbackup is a tool for quickly creating backups of a MySQL server's data files. To perform a backup, mylvmbackup obtains a read lock on all tables and flushes all server caches to disk, creates a snapshot of the volume containing the MySQL data directory, and unlocks the tables again. The snapshot process takes only a small amount of time. When it is done, the server can continue normal operations, while the actual file backup proceeds.

MySQL University: Using DTrace with MySQL

This Thursday (December 18th), Martin "MC" Brown will talk about using DTrace with MySQL. MC is the Solaris (and, naturally, DTrace and ZFS) expert on the Sun Database Group documentation team. He's helped the openSolaris team port MySQL to openSolaris.

Note that we'll be using a new session address / Dimdim URL:

You can bookmark this address, since it will remain valid for all future MySQL University sessions. Remember, though, that the meeting room will open only 15 minutes before the session starts.

MC's MySQL University session will start at 14:00 UTC / 8am CST (Central) / 9am EST (Eastern) / 14:00 GMT / 15:00 CET / 17:00 MDT (Moscow).

This is the last MySQL University session of this calendar year. In January, we'll continue with a set of sessions on performance and scalabilty – straight from the Sun QA labs. Find the tentative 2009 schedule on the MySQL University home page.

Have a great Christmas season/winter break, everyone!

MySQL University: Random Query Generator

This Thursday (December 11th), Philip Stoev will talk about the Random Query Generator, a new QA tool that generates pseudo-random queries targeted to exercise a specific part of the server being tested. It then executes those queries to check for crashes or assertions or to compare the results returned from two different servers (two versions, two different storage engines, optimizer flags, etc.). It is also able to execute queries against a replication master, constantly checking that the slave is okay and has not diverged.

Towards the end of the session, Philip will share his desktop and show some live examples. Make sure to adjust your volume in case the MySQL Server will utter agonized sounds.

Note that we'll be using a new session address / Dimdim URL:

About

mysqlf is a common typo on the #docs IRC channel of the MySQL documentation team. It shows a high (some might say, dangerous) degree of identification with MySQL. Trying to pronounce it will probably result in tongue injuries.
