My second article for SearchDataCenter.com is up here: Examining MySQL in real time using DTrace.
The interesting back story is that this article was requested after I spoke on DTrace at the MySQL Users Conference, but I’ve stalled on it… to the point that 3 weeks later I felt embarrassed to even submit it. As much as I love writing, its very different and difficult when its expected. My favorite mantra “You get what you pay for” works both ways.
So to all you authors out there that actually can manage to pop out columns and papers on fixed time lines, my hat is off to you. I’m hoping to submit a couple more articles to SearchDataCenter before the end of the year… hoping to pay off Christmas early.
