Valkey/Redis: Migrating to Valkey

As you are probably aware, Redis decided to switch to a source-available, SSPLv1 license. This means, as of Redis 7.4, it is no longer considered “open source.” Because of this change, Valkey launched its fork, retaining the original BSD open source license. At the same time, Percona announced our partnership with Valkey and the Linux […]

Backups Able To Pass The Unisuper TestYou may have heard about Unisuper’s problem last week; see here.

  • Brief description:
    • Have you ever wanted your Drupal site to have a trash bin for content entities, so they wouldn’t be immediately deleted from the database? There’s a module for that
  • Module name/project name:
  • Brief history
    • How old: created in Feb 2008 by rötzi, though recent releases are by Andrei Mateescu (mah-teh-sku) (amateescu) of Tag1
    • Versions available: 3.0.3, compatible with Drupal 9, 10, and 11
  • Maintainership
    • Actively maintained, release less than two months old
    • Security coverage
    • Test coverage
    • Number of open issues: 7 open issues, 3 of which are bugs against the current branch
  • Usage stats:
    • 1899 sites
  • Module features and usage
    • Once the module is installed, you choose which entity types on your site should use the new trash storage
    • For all the configured entities, deleting a piece of content moves it into the new trash storage, along with a timestamp set for when it went into the trash
    • You can configure whether or not the trash should be automatically purged on a periodic basis, and if so how often that should happen
    • It seems that there are some entities for which the Trash module currently excludes its functionality, such as users, comments, taxonomy terms, and so on. The note in the code indicates that more testing is needed, so any of our listeners who wants to trash entities for any of these types could try out patching the TrashSettingsFormand on a local copy and provide feedback based on how things work
    • The ability to restore deleted content is a request I’ve heard a number of times, so this could be a really useful module for making Drupal work in ways that certain teams expect

Can We Set up a Replicate Filter Within the Percona XtraDB Cluster?

Set up a Replicate Filter Within the Percona XtraDB ClusterIf you were to ask me the question, “Would it be possible to set up a replicate filter within the Percona XtraDB Cluster?” my immediate response would be to question you right back. Why would you even want the cluster nodes to have different data when you’re using a synchronous replication cluster? That’s because, instinctively, […]
