  • Profiling MySQL queries from Performance Schema

    Jervin Real
    16 Apr 2015 | 10:49 am
    When optimizing queries and investigating performance issues, MySQL comes with built in support for profiling queries akaSET profiling = 1; . This is already awesome and simple to use, but why the PERFORMANCE_SCHEMA alternative?Because profiling will be removed soon (already deprecated on MySQL 5.6 ad 5.7); the built-in profiling capability can only be enabled per session. This means that you cannot capture profiling information for queries running from other connections. If you are using Percona Server, the profiling option for log_slow_verbosity is a nice alternative, unfortunately, not…

Usually we only care about the data but from time to time we receive this question in support:How can I check the table definition consistency between servers?Replication also allow us to have different table definition between master and slaves. For example, there are some cases that you need some indexes on slaves for querying purposes but are not really needed on the master. There are some other cases where those differences…

    8 Apr 2015 | 10:19 am
    Summary: Yesterday at the IIW closing circle someone asked why blockchain matters. I gave an answer that felt right, so I figured I'd write it down. The world is full of directories, registries, and ledgers—mappings from keys to values. We have traditionally relied on some central authority (whoever owns the ledger) to ensure its consistency and availability. Blockchain is a global-scale, practical ledger system that demonstrates consistency and availability without a central authority or owner. This is why blockchain matters. This is not to say that blockchain is perfect and solves…

We did that in various ways: planting tags, using Information Cards, and with the Kynetx Browser extension. We did some interesting things, had some great partners, and good customers.

    The ability to quickly create and deploy new solutions, often using innovative technologies, is what sets one organization apart from its competitors. But many organizations struggle to keep their developers on a lifelong path of learning: Under the day-to-day pressures of business and operation, education is often de-prioritized. That's too bad, because it's this kind of short-term thinking that can carry a heavy long-term price. Fortunately, using modern approaches, organizations – and their software developers – no longer need to make that compromise.Request Free!

    As Amazon’s founder and CEO, Jeff Bezos has received plenty of press coverage in recent years. Most of this coverage is, of course, thanks to his leading the company to amazing achievements. Amazon has grown from a platform dedicated to online book sales into a retailing giant that’s threatening to revolutionize retail shopping across the world. Bezos’s managerial style, however, has certainly garnered him some additional attention (in the form of praise as well as criticism). Obviously, all this press has brought many managers to see Bezos as a role model and to look for ways in which…

    Search giant Google has plans to expand its Council Bluffs, Iowa, data center, and it’s likely to receive almost $20 million in state incentives for the project, according to Omaha World-Herald. But the sales-tax breaks, which would total $36.6 million for the entire facility, are chump change compared with the estimated $2.5 billion price tag once the latest project reaches completion. In one sense, Network World’s Paul McNamara has a point: “Google needs a tax break like Bill Gates needs food stamps.” Indeed, such a small refund hardly seems likely to sway a company pursuing such a…

    Just having big data is not enough, you need to know what to do with itImage Credit: Ian Alexander Martin CIOs everywhere are being overwhelmed with talk about “big data”. This is simply using IT systems and tools to process very large data sets in order to answer questions about how best to run the company. What used to be too big of a task for anyone to attempt has become doable with new tools and techniques allowing us to harness the importance of information technology.

What this is all about is using modern analytical tools to process very large amounts of data in order to identify trends and opportunities for the business that were previously unknown. The IT department plays a leading role in the big data revolution because we are the ones who are keeping all of the data and we are responsible for purchasing and using the tools that will allow us to process that data.

In the past, the answer to this question was simple – these tools were complicated and expensive and because of the importance of information technology it was the company’s job to properly equip their employees so that they could stay in touch.

  • The common thread in most successful attacks? Users

    David King
    20 Apr 2015 | 10:49 am
    One of the largest annual studies of breaches and cybercrime has found attacks are getting more and more complicated, but most still succeed or fail from the biggest weak point in security: the end user.  This is nothing new. Users have and always will be the single most vulnerable point of any system. It’s so widely recognized it has its own acronym: PEBCAK, or Problem Exists Between Chair and Keyboard. So while the 2015 Verizon Data Breach Investigation Report found that hackers are getting more sophisticated in their attacks, the root cause remains mostly the same: user error or…

Here are a few highlighted recently by Business Insider: Get referrals. While outside firms might be a good way to get plenty of candidates in your door, relying on good, old-fashioned recommendations from your own people is probably a wiser approach.

Last week, Amazon introduced the Dash Button–a small button that, when pushed, will send a signal to Amazon that you’re running low on household items (like laundry detergent, disposable razors, or diapers). Amazon receives the signal from the Dash Button, then sends a new shipment of that item right to your house.

About 80 local products are currently listed on the site, and 19 had enough review data to make it onto our first Chicago GridScape. Here are the results: A few quick notes about our methodology: Only products with 10 or more validated reviews were included on the…

  • The Future of the Distributed Network

    Marten Terpstra
    20 Apr 2015 | 5:30 am
    Back in December of 2014, I wrote a blog post about the complexities of the network as a distributed system. In it I pointed out that networks have traditionally been built as distributed systems, and that our entire management and knowledge base for networks is based on this. But, is this the best approach for current and future networking needs? As humans we have our own ideas of how to best solve problems. While we are immensely creative, our solutions aren’t always the best (or will never be). We often look to nature as a guide for how to improve our manmade solutions. When we look at…

Adobe was the first proprietary brand we’ve been introducing through our past three articles on RTMP, HLS and HDS, and today’s article completes our introduction to Apple/Adobe by questioning something rhetorical – “which is…

    Our Streaming MiniSeries continues today; after our grand opening with RTMP and our second article regarding HLS (or HTTP Live Streaming), our focus today is all around HDS (or HTTP Dynamic Streaming). For although HLS sounds very much of a compromise between Adobe and Apple, HDS is instead all about HTTP Streaming for the Android and WinOS and UNIX world. It has been adopted relatively less than HLS (due to the fact that no particular Apple likeminded Vendor enforced it as a specification for streaming ) and in fact we’ll spend a further Article after this one speculating about inception…

  • Ten Million Passwords

    20 Apr 2015 | 7:30 am
    Imagine finding out that a password of yours had been stolen. That would be scary enough, right? Even if you found out in time to do something about it, that would still be a terrifying dose of reality knowing that someone was able to get their hands on it. However, now imagine that not only had someone stolen this important piece of information, but they had also posted it online for all to see. That’s exactly what happened to as many as 10 million people earlier this year.
  • Potential Risks with Event Wi-Fi

    16 Apr 2015 | 7:30 am
    If you think about it, it really wasn’t that long ago that Wi-Fi was treated as a luxury. Unless you were in your own home, it was very rare you’d be somewhere where your phone, laptop or tablet could benefit from super-fast speeds. Nowadays, though, if a restaurant, hotel or any other business doesn’t offer reliable Wi-Fi, their reputation will pay the price. This is why so many events now offer it.. Still, like so many things in the digital age, just because you enjoy event Wi-Fi doesn’t mean it’s actually safe to use.

  • A safe certification program could undermine brain dump providers

    Matthew Morris

    Brain dumps are a thorn in the side of all major certification providers. There is a demand for certification preparation materials and when a demand exists, suppliers (both good and bad) will come forward to fill it. Not every IT professional understands exactly what brain dumps are. With the exception of people very new to certification, however, I believe that most could provide a reasonably good definition. The vast majority of exam candidates probably realize that certification authorities ban the use of brain dumps in preparing for an exam.Possessing the ability to define a brain dump,…

    Business analytics today is more about CRM integration and business intelligence to analyze past events and make near-accurate predictions that can influence the future strategies.

    In most companies, the marketing and technology departments have traditionally functioned in very separate spaces. While marketing executives have concentrated on understanding their customer base and creativity, IT has been focused on data management and software development. But as the internet becomes more central to how business operates, and with customers expecting a digital experience, marketing needs to delve into technology more and more, while IT must begin to foster a full understanding of the company’s customer base.
