MySQL Cluster Manager 1.4.2 [61394]
By Thomas Nielsen, March 7th, 2017

Thomas blogs, "In this blog post we will highlight some of the details of the MCM 1.4.2 release.

Progress reporting

First, some eye candy. With MCM 1.4.2 we added simple progress reporting. There is now a simple way to get some sense of progress, especially interesting for long-running commands. There is a plain variant, and one which includes an ascii-art progressbar.

Combine this with something like the linux/unix watch command, and you can easily monitor cluster health directly in the CLI. Please note that monitoring using a very short timer, combined with a log-level of debug/info, will cause excessive logging..."

MySQL Enterprise Backup: improved logging messages [61184]
By Rahul Sisondia

Rahul blogs, "Logging is very important diagnostic tool for understanding the behavior of the application as well as troubleshooting any issue with the application. Since MySQL Enterprise Backup (MEB) is a command line application, there is little interaction with the myriad of operations going on behind the scenes. Thus, logging messages is very important in order to know the progress of current operation as well as learning more about errors should they occur. The messages logged by MEB are written to the console and the log file as depicted in the following diagram, which looks similar to the Tee command in UNIX..."

Optimistic Incremental Backup [61185]
By Rahul Sisondia

Rahul blogs, "The current incremental backup algorithm scans all the tables to gather changed pages even if very few tables are modified since the previous backup and thus results in a 'full-scan' incremental backup. This may result in increment backups requiring the same amount of time as full backup because it scans all the tables. The new algorithm aims to eliminate this extra time.

The new algorithm scans only those tables that have been modified since the previous backup. This algorithm relies on modification time, which is similar to an earlier improvement made for full backup. That full backup algorithm is known as optimistic full backup, hence new improvement is named 'Optimistic Incremental Backup'. For comparison, we will use optimistic full backup to refer to the performance improvements for full backup and optimistic increment backup for the new improvements to incremental backup..."

MySQL Support Engineer's Chronicles, Issue #5 [60957]
By Valeriy Kravchuk

Valeriy blogs, "A lot of time passed since my previous post in this series. I was busy with work, participating in FOSDEM, blogging about profilers and sharing various lists of MySQL bugs. But I do not plan to stop writing about my usual weeks of doing support engineer's job. So, time for the next post in this series, based on my random notes taken during the week here and there.

This week started for me with checking recent MySQL bug reports (actually I do it every day). I noted recent report by Roel, Bug #85065. Unfortunately it was quickly marked as "Won't fix", and I tend to agree with Laurynas Biveinis that this was probably a wrong decision..."
