Recently, I read the XtraDB part of Percona Server document roughly, in this process, I realized my huge lack of basic database knowledge, so it’s inevitable to spend a lot of time on clarifying many concepts which have been mentioned several times in the doc.
In the meanwhile, I found out that there’s so much incorrect and ambiguous information on the internet, for the greater good, it could be great if I organize these all materials and post them on this blog. This article contain a few MySQL only usage, but it’s won’t cut down the readability for the reader who is not familiar with MySQL (perhaps…).
Why use English? Due to most of the info I collect are written in English and I don’t have enough time to translate them. But don’t worry, I’ll post a Chinese version someday.
