whoamiMariaDB guy at Monty Program AbFormerly MySQL AB/Sun MicrosystemsPast lives included Fedora Project (FESCO),OpenOfﬁce.org
Aims32 months, four major releases(5.1,5.2,5.3,5.5) & more (Galera Cluster, 10.0)Discuss the broader MySQL ecosystemThe future of MariaDB
MariaDB is... (currently) Community developed Feature enhanced a better MySQL Fully compatible with MySQL not a fork feature complete
OwnershipMySQL (database) owned by MySQL AB(company) -> Sun -> OracleMonty Program is just a (major) sponsor ofMariaDBmaria-captains: 50% MP, 50% communityincluding Sphinxsearch, Twitter, SkySQL,Taobao, Facebook, Percona, Codership, & more
Aims of MariaDB100% compatible, drop-in replacement toMySQL i.e. no changes in connectors, app doesn’t care its MariaDB unless using new features, easy upgrade (uninstall mysql, install mariadb, magic!)Stable (bug-free) releases with no regressionsGPLv2
Compatibility with MySQLNDB cluster included, XtraDB enabled bybut not enabled by default now. InnoDBdefault included too & may change to defaultClient libraries, clientserver protocol, SQL MariaDB Galera Clusterdialect, master-slave is a separate downloadreplication all same http://kb.askmonty.org/Data ﬁles supported as v/mariadb-versus-long as same versions mysql-compatibility
XtraDBENGINE=InnoDB usesXtraDB by defaultLess checkpointing(smoother), lessﬂushing to disk,stable performance
MariaDB 5.5GA April 2012https://kb.askmonty.org/en/what-is-mariadb-55/Current release: MariaDB 5.5.27By far the most popular release of MariaDBdownloaded, in use, today
MariaDB 5.5: anopensource threadpoolModiﬁed from 5.1 No minimization of(libevent based), great concurrent transactionsfor CPU bound loads with dynamic pool sizeand short runningqueriesWindows (threadpool),Linux (epoll), Solaris(event ports), FreeBSD/OSX (kevents)
MariaDB 5.5: Better for DBAs non-blocking client library fast node.js driver available: mariasql start operation, do work in thread, SELECT now has LIMIT operation processed, ROWS EXAMINED to result travels back consume less resources use cases: multiple SELECT * from t1, queries against single t2 LIMIT 10 ROWS server (utilize more EXAMINED 1000; CPUs); queries against multiple servers (SHOW STATUS on many machines)
That’s it?From December 2010 to April 2012, 3 features for a 16 month delay?!?
MariaDB 5.3Biggest change in the optimizer since it waswritten - more complete than MySQL 5.6!!!Replication improvementsReleased February 2012Based on the MySQL 5.1 codebase
Better replicationOriginal statements logged with row basedreplication (RBR) eventsChecksum for binlog eventsRBR works for tables with no primary keyConsistent snapshot between storage engines

MariaDB 5.3: GIS support!MySQL has OpenGIS SFS (Simple featureaccess, SQL access method)Now, SQL with full geometry typesST_ preﬁxhttp://kb.askmonty.org/en/gis-features-in-533
Optimizer enhancements Join additions block nested loop joins for outer-joins, block hash joins, Batched Key Access (BKA) Optimization for derived tables & views mergeable derived tables processed like VIEWs + optimizer creates indexes over materialized derived tables Disk access optimization Index Condition Pushdown (ICP), Multi-Range Read (MRR)
Subquery optimizations Semi-join Goodbye rewriting as optimization, JOINs or separate materialization for queries non-correlated IN queries, subquery cache DBT-3, 60M rows, 29GB XtraDB

Still using MyISAM?Mitigates thread contention for key cachelock, with notable performance improvementsKey caches divided into different segments,allowing for better key cache concurrency1-64 segments
SphinxSECREATE TABLE t1 (..) instead of WHERE,ENGINE=SPHINX ORDER BY, LIMITCONNECTION=”sphinx://localhost:9312/test”; Sphinx is optimized/ fast for these tasksEngine connects toSphinx searchd Most of the Sphinx API is exposed toLet indexing, searching, enginesorting, ﬁltering beperformed by Sphinx JOIN search table with other MySQL tables
What is Aria?Still just a crash-safe MyISAMused for temporary tables internallygroup commit added in 5.2 to speed upmulti-user inserts

Deployments! happy users: pap.fr, wabtec, Paybox Services, “We made the switch on OLX, Jelastic, Web of Trust, SaltOS, ERP5, etc. Saturday -- and we’re seeing“MariaDB had these same bugs that we ran into beneﬁts already -- our dailywith MySQL. However the big difference was optimization time is down fromthat when we reported these bugs, they were 24 minutes to just 4 minutes” --quickly resolved within 48 hours!” -- Dreas van Ali Watters, CEO, travelblog.orgDonselaar, Chief Technology Ofﬁcer, SpamExpertsB.V. after migrating over 300 servers fromMySQL 5.0 to MariaDB 5.1. “Migrating from MySQL 5.1 to MariaDB 5.2 was as simple as removing MySQL RPMs and installing the MariaDB packages, then running mysql_upgrade.” - Panayot Belchev, proprietor, Host Bulgaria on providing MariaDB to over 7,000 of their web hosting customers.

Track recordWe found the latest MySQL security bug and MariaDB was ﬁrst tobe patched (sql/password.c & memcmp())We don’t like regressions http://www.skysql.com/blogs/hartmut/nasty-innodb-regression- mysql-5525 http://www.skysql.com/blogs/kolbe/heads-no-more-query-cache- partitioned-tables-mysql-5523We care about backward compatibility & introduce featurescarefully XtraDB innodb_adaptive_checkpoint=none|reﬂex|estimate| keep_average (no more reﬂex...)

We love the community Tokutek’s TokuDB ships with MariaDB too groonga is to be merged We’re looking at spider next Multiple software packages talk about us (as an alternative to MySQL): Drupal, MediaWiki, Plone, phpMyAdmin, WordPress, etc.
FutureMySQL 5.6 just RC, we have most features in 5.5MariaDB 10.0 new InnoDB inside MariaDB (done) Global transaction ID support Multi-source replication (done) Enhanced semisync replication Persistent InnoDB statistics (done) Cassandra Storage Engine (done), HBase Storage Engine virtual machine for Cassandra made by community!
