Hack MySQL

MySQL tools article

with 7 comments

Although I no longer maintain hackmysql.com, I still actively develop MySQL tools. An article I wrote, 10 essential MySQL tools for admin, was published today. I hope no one’s feelings are hurt if their tool isn’t in the list, but it was rather difficult to compile the list given that so many tools are either not actively developed, not tested, or not well documented. Given lag time between writing and publishing, I was not able to write about Yoshinori’s MHA or newer tools. And given length constraints, I was not able to write about more tools. In any case, the world of MySQL tools is alive and well.

  1. Great list!

    Why did you skip mysql sandbox?

  2. Thanks, Daniel. MySQL Sandbox was in my original list of possibilities, but I had to narrow it down to 10 tools and I felt MySQL Sandbox was not a tool strictly speaking because a tool does some job on/to/for MySQL but MySQL Sandbox _is_ MySQL.

  4. Shlomi has a good thing going with oak-security-audit. He should publicize it more.

  5. Daniel,
    Thank you! I’m not good with publicizing, but apparently you’re doing the work for me :)
