MySQL Community Needs

MySQL Performance Blog - Wed, 15/08/2007 - 9:40pm

Sheeri just posted a great post putting a different view on recent MySQL Community Announcements.

This however raises very interesting point what MySQL Community really needs ?

I think the problem is there are no single set of needs for Community which can be maintained within single version. I see at least two set of community with very different needs.

MySQL VIEW as performance troublemaker

MySQL Performance Blog - Sun, 12/08/2007 - 6:17pm

I start to see applications being built utilizing VIEWs functionality which appeared in MySQL 5.0 and quite frequently VIEWs are used to help in writing the queries - to keep queries simple without really thinking how it affects server performance.

Even worse than that - looking at the short table which just gets single row from the table by the key we think this is simple query, while can be real monster instead with complexity hidden away in VIEW definition.

FaceBook Search, Search for social networks

MySQL Performance Blog - Sun, 12/08/2007 - 2:06pm

Yesterday I ran into the article which sheds some light on FaceBook search implementation. As we're recently a lot into search having implemented a bunch of search projects ourselves and helped number a of customers with their full text search needs I decided to post my thoughts on this matter.

SpyLOG Was sold the other day, time to look back

MySQL Performance Blog - Sat, 11/08/2007 - 7:29pm

Friends are pointing me to the article saying SpyLOG, the startup which I co-founded back in 1999 was sold the other day to the MasterHost. The amount is not disclosed but it is estimated to be $3M - amount not worth mentioning for USA market but quite decent one for Russian Internet Market.

So I guess after all this project with not easy destiny can be called successful.

MySQL Community contrubutions

MySQL Performance Blog - Thu, 09/08/2007 - 10:40am

I've just read post about MySQL plans of including community contributions into releases. I understand MySQL's interest to make releases stable, and includes contributions only into development tree, but this is not something I would like to see.

New MySQL Community Release Policies published

MySQL Performance Blog - Thu, 09/08/2007 - 10:25am

Yesterday Kaj Published changes to MySQL Community Release Policies. I knew about them a bit in advance but now they are public I can comment a bit.

In general I'm disappointed and think this is moving in the wrong direction, it also makes me to think hard if MySQL is out of more creative solutions to increase the sales revenue ?
