My second article for 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. 🙂
