Mono 2.8 is Released.

The Mono developers have released Mono 2.8, a major update to the implementation of Microsoft’s .NET technology for Linux and other platforms. Miguel de Icaza, project lead, said in his blog that the release “contains ten months worth of new features, stability fixes, performance work and bug fixes”. The Mono C# compiler is now a complete implementation of the C# 4.0 specification and defaults to operating as a 4.0 based platform.\r\n\r\nA new Generational GC (Garbage collector) offers better performance for applications which consume and reuse large amounts of memory; benchmarkingshows CPU use is now much more predictable. Support for LLVM has now been marked as stable with a mono-llvm command allowing server applications to run with an LLVM back end, potentially offering greater performance; JIT compilation with LLVM is described as “very slow” in the release notes and therefore only currently suits long-lived server processes.

Online Schema Change for mySQL

It is great to be able to build small utilities on top of an excellent RDBMS. Thank you MySQL. This is a small but complex utility to perform online schema change for MySQL. We call it OSC and the source is here (Code is also available at bottom).\r\n\r\nSome ALTER TABLE statements take too long form the perspective of some MySQL users. The fast index create feature for the InnoDB plugin in MySQL 5.1 makes this less of an issue but this can still take minutes to hours for a large table and for some MySQL deployments that is too long.\r\n\r\nA workaround is to perform the change on a slave first and then promote the slave to be the new master. But this requires a slave located near the master. MySQL 5.0 added support for triggers and some replication systems have been built using triggers to capture row changes. Why not use triggers for this? The openarkkit toolkit did just that with oak-online-alter-table. We have published our version of an online schema change utility (OnlineSchemaChange.php aka OSC).

MySQL – How to create a database diagram basing on the image available

Database Structure Image

Often we make some sketches of the database we plan to create on a blackboard or a sheet of paper before we actually design its structure on computer. After that we discuss the entities we’ve got, normalize them and repeat these actions several times. As a result we get a completely approved database structure in […]
