How to Kill MySQL Performance?

Meeting Room Link:


Neither only writing good MySQL queries can give the good performance, nor adding the additional hardware, as Performance != Scalability.  To improve the performance, one has to think about the broader picture like:

  • Web & application servers level
  • Schema & choice of Engine
  • Proxies and caching at different level
  • Plan for replication / partitioning earlier

This talk is more about what things not to do followed by suggestions. This talk is targeting MySQL DB, however not limited to itself. Some of the concept can be adopted for Oracle etc other DBs as well.

About the Speaker:

The Speaker, Vishnu Agarwal, has 8 years of extensive experience in PHP & MySQL Development along with different open source technology. Being a performance evangelist in Walmart eCommerce & Yahoo, he has not only got good hands-on experience with high volume & high traffic sites for Client Side Performance, but in Server & MySQL Performance improvement also.

      The date is fine, but request you to schedule it either earlier of later so that people can attend it from office or home. 7PM is a time when mostly people would be traveling back from office to home. Nevertheless I shall try to make for this schedule as well.
