In this talk, we'll walk through RocksDB technology and look into areas where MyRocks is a good fit by comparison to other engines such as InnoDB. We will go over internals, benchmarks, and tuning of MyRocks engine. We also aim to explore the benefits of using MyRocks within the MySQL ecosystem. Attendees will be able to conclude with the latest development of tools and integration within MySQL.

It is common knowledge that built-in asynchronous master-master (active-active) replication is not safe. I remember times when the official MySQL User Reference Manual stated that such an installation is not recommended for production use. Some experts repeat this claim even now. While this statement is generally true, I worked with thousands of shops that successfully avoided asynchronous replication limitations in active-active setups. In this talk, I will show how they did it, demonstrate ...

Have you ever needed to get some additional write throughput from MySQL ? If yes, you probably found that setting sync_binlog to 0 (and trx_commit to 2) gives you an extra performance boost. As all such easy optimisation, it comes at a cost. This talk explains how this tuning works, presents its consequences and makes recommendations to avoid them. This will bring us to the details of how MySQL commits transactions and how those are replicated to slaves. Come to this talk to learn how to get the ...

This talk will provide an overview of Data-at-Rest-Encryption features in MySQL, MariaDB and Percona Server for MySQL, their availability across versions, and status (experimental/GA).

SELinux (Security Enhanced Linux) provides enhanced security mechanism for more advanced access control and auditing. It allows your application software and your system users to only access the resources it's been preconfigured to allow. Of course when you want to move your data- or log files to a non-standard location these policies will stop MySQL from starting. The easy way out is obviously to set SELinux to disabled or permissive. But someone once said: "Every time you disable SELinux a ...
