Update: Looks like both of these have been fixed in 8.0.26.
Navicat For MySQL is a GUI for MySQL developers. I've tried a few tools before but somehow got attached to Navicat due to a few nice features that I'm not going to go into right now. Navicat suffers from a couple of annoying bugs and random crashes. I don't know if I can help fix the random ones but if I can at least file the ones I can reproduce, everyone wins. I have the latest as of today version 8.0.23.

April 14-17th is going to be an exciting time. Why? Because the 2008 MySQL Conference and Expo is going to be held in Santa Clara, CA. Who would want to miss out on a chance to lurk around, let alone talk to, some of the smartest people in the MySQL world? Well, those who don't have at least $1000+, of course. A 3 day pass to the conference without tutorials costs a whopping $1199. A full pass would dry up your pockets $1499.
Well, "good news everyone". Thanks to Sheeri Cabral of The Pythian Group, PlanetMySQL.org, Jeremy, and, most importantly, LinuxQuestions.org, I am now in possession of a 3-day conference pass!! I'm incredibly excited that I …

If you're serious about MySQL, it doesn't hurt to know the people closely tied to its development and maintenance as well as famous bloggers. Here's my ongoing list of people I consider important:
Peter Zaitsev – MySQL Performance Blog, former head of MySQL AB High Performance Group. His company Percona is available for consulting. He's a co-author of High Performance MySQL 2nd edition (great book).
Baron Schwartz – also know as Xaprb, Baron a co-author of High Performance MySQL 2nd edition and creator of innotop and Maatkit. Maatkit is simply brilliant, and so is Baron. Baron recently joined Peter Zaitsev at Percona.

Today Robin Schumacher, MySQL's Director of Product Management, announced that the mysql Falcon storage engine has moved into a beta release stage. Falcon, a new transactional storage engine introduced in mysql 6 (aka 5.2), has been in alpha for years. Other popular storage engines include MyISAM, InnoDB, which Falcon is supposed to challenge (successfully? :-/), and the upcoming Maria.
- ACID transaction compliant
- Crash recovery
- User-defined tablespaces
- High-speed data caches
- Advanced B-Tree indexes
- Performance/diagnostic monitoring tables
- Simplified configuration
You can download mysql 6 with Falcon here: http://dev.mysql.com/downloads/mysql/6.0.html….

"Didn't see that one coming. Their blog contains details to what this could mean for both companies. May as well be one of the most important takeovers of 2008 already!"
Could this mean that the mysql cluster is finally going to get proper development attention? I don't know but sure as hell hope so. Congratulations to all mysql employees!…

sysbench – Linux test bench. Easy as pie to test CPU, memory, threads, mysql, and disk performance.
Full description is available here: http://sysbench.sourceforge.net/docs/
install mysql, mysql-devel wget http://downloads.sourceforge.net/project/sysbench/sysbench/0.4.12/sysbench-0.4.12.tar.gz tar xvzf sysbench*gz cd sysbench* ./configure && make install
This will run 10 separate consecutive mysql tests using an InnoDB table type, each with 100 mysql threads, doing a total of 1000 various SQL operations per test. Then it will print the total time they took to finish:
