Linspector pre-alpha

Friday, September 27th, 2013

Linspector got a new website! I made it with the use of Bootstrap and mostly the default theme settings. It was a very fast process to get a result like this. I love that Bootstrap stuff… ;) I will from time to time work on the design to make it unique but for now I am happy like it is.

BTW: I would like to announce that the monitoring software Linspector is in a usable state. Sure it should not be used in productive environments at the moment but you can clearly see the goals and programming interfaces for adding features.

Please test Linspector and report your experience. If you like writing Python code and really want a new kind of monitoring software you are very welcome to participate in the project. Take a look at the Linspector Dev Site to get more information…

R.I.P. MySQL

Saturday, April 27th, 2013


I switched from MySQL to MariaDB some time ago and now I read in the news that Wikipedia is switching too. I really recommend to give MariaDB a try. Nothing is changing to you if you are running Webapps like PHPMyAdmin, WordPress etc. You are just switching to a 100% open source software that MySQL is not anymore.

I am using Gentoo and Sabayon Linux and switching was just installing MariaDB, MySQL was automatically removed. Restarting the service “mysql” was the only thing to do afterwards. All databases were up and running whithout any configuration. Make a dump of your databases before so you could import the data when something fails with the raw datafiles. Everything worked out of the box for me and even my backup scripts are working without any changes because of 100% MySQL compatibility.

I like to replace software on my workstation that is not 100% open source. It is great that MariaDB is on its way and we could feel like we felt the good old “MySQL” days… ;)

Dear hosting providers, please switch from MySQL to MariaDB. Everything is compatible and when you are doing the first step, web application developers will follow. MySQL is great but it is not freedem like MariaDB and we all used the freedom of MySQl in the late 90′s to build up our hosting stuff… It was a benefit for the MySQL project but mostly for us. So let us now do the same and give MariaDB the chance for replacement. Then the develepment of the most succesfull open database management system can go on again. Thanks for that to all developers of MariaDB!

MySQL, Rest In Peace!
