3 – 7 October thanked the monitoring team at Deutsche Post for being such a pleasure to work with and passed on news of the latest NoSQL/MySQL developments. Also, our newest junior addition in the development team Johannes, shared his first impressions and anticipation of all that is to come on board NETWAYS.
Birger followed with the realisation that the Deutsche Post was more electronic and less paper-laden than often thought. In a consulting project in Einbeck, he helped oil the IT infrastructure that ensures the paper post’s timely delivery. Implementing a mirrored monitoring environment with Icinga Core, Icinga Web, LConf, Business Process View, Grapher and Icinga Reporting, the end result offered something for both admins and management.
Meanwhile, Sebastian forwarded news of a preview release to provide NoSQL access methods in MySQL. Via memcached, the InnoDB Storage Engine can be accessed through the InnoDB APIs, bypassing the SQL Optimizer and Query Processing. This enables the best performance, while still offering InnoDB features such as row level locking and transactions, bringing the best of both worlds together. More information can be found on the InnoDB blog, as well as an installation guide.
