European Lunchtime Webinar: MySQL - Top 5 Performance Sins
Employee_Team +0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Next Thursday Oracle University will be hosting a lunchtime webinar, between 13.00 and 14.00 CET, to help you better understand the common MySQL mistakes impacting performance that you should avoid.


Oracle's senior MySQL instructor and consultant Kai Voigt will review the MySQL "no no's" and advise on what simple solutions should be used instead. Kai will also provide an introduction to indexing, rewriting of queries, monitoring the use of temporary tables, and other things you should know about.


You can register here for" this free webinar taking place on Thursday November 25th at 13.00 CET.

Loose index scan vs. covered indexes in MySQL
+2 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Loose index scan in MySQL can really help optimizing “group by” queries in some cases (for example, if you have only min() and/or max() as your aggregate functions). For example, if you have this query (to find maximum delay for all US flights with departure on Sundays in 2010):

select max(DepDelayMinutes), 	carrier, dayofweek
from ontime_2010
where dayofweek = 7
group by Carrier,  dayofweek

the usual case will be adding a covered index on (dayofweek, Carrier, DepDelayMinutes). And MySQL will use this index fine (using index mean it will use the covered index):

mysql> explain select max(DepDelayMinutes), Carrier, dayofweek from ontime_2010
where dayofweek =7 group by Carrier, dayofweek\G

Lately in the MySQL community, we only hear about scalability or performance improvements of storage engines, but nothing about query engine itself. For example, one classic example being InnoDB; if[...]

Looking just at the data
+1 Vote Up -0Vote Down

There are many areas you need to review when addressing MySQL performance such as current database load, executed SQL statements, connections, configuration parameters, memory usage, disk to memory ratio, hardware performance & bottlenecks just to name a few.

If you were to just look at the data that is held in the database, what would you consider?
Here are my tips, when looking just at the data.

  • What is the current database size?
  • What is the growth of data over time, say daily, weekly?
  • Which are the 2 largest tables now?
  • What 2 tables are growing the fastest?
  • What tables have greatest churn, specifically DELETE’s?
  • How often do you optimize your tables?
  • What is your archiving/purging strategy? Do you even have one?
  • Review data types? I average 25% reduction in footprints, just by

    The Awkward Stage of Scaling
    +0 Vote Up -0Vote Down
    A lot of my clients are in a position where their database performance is deteriorating but they are not “big enough” (or not willing/able to) explore sharding all of their data structures. They’re too big for the solution to be adding another read slave, but too small to justify the resources for re-designing their [...]

    The Dangers of Having status fields
    +0 Vote Up -0Vote Down
    Having a status column is very common in databases today. It can be used to denote a user status: CREATE TABLE IF NOT EXISTS `user` ( `user_id` int(10) unsigned NOT NULL auto_increment, `email` varchar(32) NOT NULL, `pw_hash` char(40) NOT NULL COLLATE latin1_general_cs, `status` enum('PENDING', 'ACTIVE', 'DISABLED') default 'PENDING', `date_created` timestamp NOT NULL default CURRENT_TIMESTAMP, PRIMARY KEY (`user_id`), UNIQUE KEY `idx_email` (`email`) ); or user-uploaded [...]
    Must we always escape values?
    +0 Vote Up -0Vote Down
    One of the cardinal rules of writing web applications is to escape user-generated input with functions like PHP’s real_escape_string. This is a great rule, but one that can have a negative impact on your application’s performance if used unnecessarily. For instance, when querying data with an integer parameter that is passed internally (not [...]

    Everybody knows than Nagios can be used as a service monitor to monitor things like Load Averages, MySQL Replication Status, RAID Array States, etc… Fewer know that there are plug-ins to monitor MySQL Performance Status, such as check_mysql_perf. Fewer still utilize Nagios’ built-in triggering mechanism to execute an additional script on the event of [...]
