Profiling MySQL with oprofile

Taxonomy upgrade extras: 

Probably the answer to this question is already known. But we want to prove it and by the way learn to deal with MySQL and oprofile.

Materialized Views (MV) with MySQL

Materialised View (MV) is the pre-calculated (materialised) result of a query. Unlike a simple VIEW the result of a Materialised View is stored somewhere, generally in a table. Materialised Views are used when immediate response is needed and the query where the Materialised View bases on would take to long to produce a result. Materialised Views have to be refreshed once in a while. It depends on the requirements how often a Materialised View is refreshed and how actual its content is.

Pittfalls with Federated Tables

A Federated Table is a table which points to a table in an other MySQL database instance (mostly on an other server). It can be seen as a view to this remote database table. Other RDBMS have similar concepts for example database links.

MySQL storage engines

Taxonomy upgrade extras: 

One of the big advantages of MySQL is its concept of pluggable Storage Engines (SE). This means you can choose the most optimal storage engine for your needs. This also has a disadvantage: You have to know what you are doing...

Full-Text Search Engines

MySQL has also a Full-Text Search Engine built in. But this Search Engine is not as fast a you probably want to. Thus there are some alternative Full-Text Search Engines which might be working together with MySQL.

Stealthy migrating MySQL tables and MySQL data access interfaces using enlarged updateable VIEW functionality

Applications occasionally require redesign. However, redesigning an application cannot be done in one step because the application is distributed or several versions of applications must be supported. MySQL 5.0 provides the necessary means to stealthy migrate your data. In a short overview let's look at what we plan to do: Stealthy Migration (PDF 98.7 kByte).
