MySql ServerName.Log file size
A quick and dirty hack (written in C#) to solve the issue of MySql query log files getting huuuge:
System.ServiceProcess.ServiceController sc = new ServiceController("mysql", "servername");
sc.WaitForStatus(ServiceControllerStatus.Stopped, new TimeSpan(0, 0, 30));
System.IO.File.Delete(@"\\servername\C$\Program Files\MySQL\MySQL Server 5.0\data\ServerName.log");
sc.WaitForStatus(ServiceControllerStatus.Running, new TimeSpan(0, 0, 30));
I have this compiled into a CruiseControl task that runs at 7am every day, no more massive log files and a lot easier than trying to decipher the MySql documentation. Plus, I've got some other odds and ends of maintenance that I've shoe-horned in. Not necessarily elegant, but it works!
My skillset has matured somewhat since then, which you'll probably see from the posts here. You can read a bit more about me on the about page of the site, or check out some of the other posts on my areas of interest.
