Posted by taufiqaalam in Introduction.

Week 9 (21st – 28th July)

Key Accomplishments Last Week

  1. Read about the mysql Benchmarking suite and the importance of this suite for mysql.
  2. Covered the chapter on Debugging in “Expert Mysql” by Charles A.Bell.
  3. The chapter on debugging helped me to get to speed to debug mysql source code on Windows using Visual Studio
  4. I also practiced debugging mysql on Linux using ddd and gdb.
  5. P.S. I would like to thank Brian, Collin and Leslie for their patience and support. If God wills, I should start some serious hacking very soon.

Key Tasks that stalled last Week

    1. Installation of perl interface for executing the Benchmarking suite
      1. Have some issues with the DBD::mysql module on cygwin as well as on Linux.

Key Concerns

  1. No time to look at supersmack, mybench as I will have to learn how to execute these tools.

Tasks for the Coming Week

  1. Open up mysqlslap again and learn it comprehensively by running as many features as possible using a debugger on Windows or Linux or both.
