mysql execute immediate

I had a requirement to generate a sharded schema where no of shards and no of tables in the shard were dynamic. Basically we wanted to shard one table so we ended up creating 8 schemas and each schema will hold 8 tables that are copy of the same schema. Now I didnt wanted to hand write the 64 table/schema creation statement so came up with this procedure that allows to dynamically build and execute sql queries.  Oracle was so easy, mysql is a little bit verbose.


    drop procedure if exists create_rdb_tables;
    delimiter #
    create procedure create_rdb_tables()
    begin
    declare v_max int unsigned default 9;
    declare v_counteri int unsigned default 1;
    declare v_counterj int unsigned default 1;
      while v_counteri < v_max do
        while v_counterj < v_max do
            set @sql_text := concat('drop table if exists metadata_rdb_schema',v_counteri, '.metadata_rdb_t', v_counterj,';');
            prepare stmt from @sql_text;
            execute stmt;
            DEALLOCATE PREPARE stmt;
    
            set @sql_text := concat('CREATE TABLE metadata_rdb_schema',v_counteri, '.metadata_rdb_t', v_counterj, ' (user_id INT NOT NULL, object_id VARCHAR(255) NOT NULL,group_id VARCHAR(36) NOT NULL,entry_id VARCHAR(36) NOT NULL,created_time DATETIME NOT NULL, primary key(object_id))TYPE=innodb;');
            prepare stmt from @sql_text;
            execute stmt;
            DEALLOCATE PREPARE stmt;
            set v_counterj=v_counterj+1;
        end while;
       set v_counteri=v_counteri+1;
      end while;
    end #
    delimiter ;
    call create_rdb_tables();
    drop procedure if exists create_rdb_tables; 



Finally it started becoming messy and kludgy so I ended up writing clean python code to generate the ddl :). This effort was a waste but I ended up learning how to do dynamic sql execution in mysql.

What a rocky start to labor day weekend

Woke up by earthquake at 7:00 AM in morning and then couldn't get to sleep. I took a bath, made my tea and started checking emails and saw that after last night deployment three storage node out of 100s of nodes were running into Full GC. What was special about the 3 nodes was that each one was in a different Data centre but it was named same app02.  This got me curious I asked the node to be taken out of rotation and take a heap dump.  Yesterday night a new release has happened and I had upgraded spymemcached library version as new relic now natively supports instrumentation on it so it was a suspect. And the hunch was a bullseye, the heap dump clearly showed it taking 1.3G and full GCs were taking 6 sec but not claiming anything.



I have a quartz job in each jvm that takes a thread dump every 5 minutes and saves last 300 of them, checking few of them quickly showed a common thread among all 3 data centres. It seems there was a long running job that was trying to replicate pending…

Email slavery

It seems I have become an EmailSlave. The first half of the day is spent in just answering to emails. There are so many emails where I am copied but I need not be. There are many emails  where its a 1-2 page email and somewhere down someone says @KP please answer this.  So it seems daily my work schedule is:
Signin to newrelic and check anomalies for 15 min. Check emails related production exception report and yes there are a ton of these report daily. Need a better tool here as this model is not scalable. I need to reduce the incoming data at me to only see relevant data like what newrelic does. May be I need to create a webapp out of these emails.Check emails for next few minutes before team callsDo team callsThen again back to checking emails until a I have taken a best shot at answering everyone waiting for my reply.Attend team meetings on Tue/Thu
Being an architect and coder at heart I don't feel satisfied at end of the day if there is nothing tangible getting done at the end.…
