MySQL Performance Best Practices for DBAs

This talk covers best practices to help you get the most out of MySQL
performance. It assumes you know a database well, though it need not
be MySQL. We'll cover several angles of the topic. Configuration is
usually the first thing people ask about. Although it's possible to
misconfigure MySQL and get bad performance, the configuration options
you need for good performance are few and rather simple. We'll see how
to inspect MySQL's performance and status, also a fairly simple subject.
Next is query tuning. There are a few surprises in MySQL due to its
simpler query execution engine than Oracle or SQL Server. We'll see
how to avoid those surprises and work with the query optimizer.
Finally, we'll focus on what you should know if you are considering
migrating part or all of your application from Oracle. There will be
plenty of time for questions, so bring yours!
