Getting rid of kernel fixing (dividing by zero), kernel versions, unbelievable bugs on every step, poor disk setting (file system), poor security (shell shock, remember?)? Ok, I tell you something. I switched from linux(thx for 15 great years anyway!) to … Continue reading
Sometimes it’s very useful to skip well-known master-slave replication scenario and focus on master-master possibility 🙂

If you think that simple „dd bs=1M count=512 if=/dev/zero of=test conv=fdatasync“ disk benchmarking is not enough – you’re completely right. There are not so many tools benchmarking your disk, one of the most used is Bonnie++.
One of most valuable thing is good documentation – for common database actions. I didn´t find any well documented step-by-step guide to change data directory in MariaDB, Debian environment. Please be aware that this one guide is not perfect and … Continue reading
As Debian is still using MySQL in default, there are very few steps to install MariaDB 10.x…
Useful and common task, should be well documented. Let´s try it! Debian 7.4 x64, PostgreSQL 9.3.2
