OurSQL Episode 27: To SQL or No[tto]SQL, that is the question

We talk about HandlerSocket with special guest Patrick Galbraith of Blue Gecko, have some Ear Candy and talk about OSCon and the Strata Conferences

The HandlerSocket announcement blog post from Yoshinori Matsunobu of DeNA: http://yoshinorimatsunobu.blogspot.com/2010/10/using-mysql-as-nosql-stor...

HandlerSocket in Percona's build: http://www.mysqlperformanceblog.com/2010/12/14/percona-server-now-both-s...

PBXT has had it for years: http://pbxt.blogspot.com/2010/12/handlersocket-why-did-out-version-did.html

sample MySQL settings using HandlerSocket from Patrick:
First you have to:

mysql> install plugin handlersocket soname 'handlersocket.so';

Then you can add to your my.cnf:

# HandlerSocket settings
loose_handlersocket_port = 9998 # the port number to bind to for read requests
loose_handlersocket_port_wr = 9999 # the port number to bind to for write requests
loose_handlersocket_threads = 16 # the number of worker threads for read requests
loose_handlersocket_threads_wr = 1 # the number of worker threads for write requests
open_files_limit = 65535
# to allow handlersocket to accept many concurrent
# connections, make open_files_limit as large as
# possible.
