I’ll be presenting at the Southern Computer Measurement Group’s meeting on Thursday. I’ll discuss how to extract scalability and performance metrics from TCP/IP packet headers.

As announced on the Maatkit and Aspersa mailing lists, Daniel and I have created a new toolkit that represents the union of the two, and will be focusing efforts on this Percona Toolkit moving forward.

The tools will continue to be open-source, but will be developed primarily to meet our MySQL support and consulting staff’s needs.

I’ve been accepted to present at the brand-new and very exciting Postgres Open 2011 about system scaling, TCP traffic, and mathematical modeling. I’m really looking forward to it — it will be my first PostgreSQL conference in a couple of years! See you there.
