Optimizing MySQL Performance: Choosing the Right Tool for the Job
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Next Wednesday, I will present a webinar about MySQL performance profiling tools that every MySQL DBA should know.

Application performance is a key aspect of ensuring a good experience for your end users. But finding and fixing performance bottlenecks is difficult in the complex systems that define today’s web applications. Having a method and knowing how to use the tools available can significantly reduce the amount of time between problems manifesting and fixes being deployed.

In the webinar, titled “Optimizing MySQL Performance: Choosing the Right Tool for the Job,” we’ll start with the basic top, iostat, and vmstat then move onto advanced tools like GDB, Oprofile, and Strace.

I’m looking forward to this webinar and invite you to join us April 16th at 10 a.m. Pacific time. You can learn more

Followup questions to ‘What’s new in Percona XtraDB Cluster 5.6′ webinar
+1 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Thanks to all who attended my webinar yesterday.  The slides and recording are available on the webinar’s page.  I was a bit overwhelmed with the amount of questions that came in and I’ll try to answer them the best I can here.

Q: Does Percona XtraDB Cluster support writing to multiple master?

Yes, it does.  However, locks are not held on all nodes while a transaction is in progress, so there is a possibility for conflicts between simultaneous writes on different nodes.  Certification is the process that Galera uses to protect your data integrity, and the problem is pushed back to the application to handle in the form of deadlock errors.   As long as you understand this and the conditions where you may see more

Looking to upgrade to MySQL 5.6? Check out my webinar on Jan 29!
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

We are nearing the one-year anniversary since MySQL 5.6 went GA – which is typically a good time even for the most conservative users to start thinking about upgrading. At this point there is a fair amount of practical use and experience; many bugs have also been fixed (1991 to be exact according to Morgan Tocker).

We also know that MySQL 5.6 has been used in some very demanding environments on a very large scale, such as at Facebook. We also know from the Facebook team, after kindly sharing their upgrade experiences, that it takes a lot of work to upgrade to MySQL

Analyzing WordPress MySQL queries with Query Analytics
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

This blog, MySQLPerformanceBlog.com, is powered by WordPress, but we never really looked into what kind of queries to MySQL are used by WordPress. So for couple months we ran a Query Analytics (part of Percona Cloud Tools) agent there, and now it is interesting to take a look on queries. Query Analytics uses reports produced by pt-query-digest, but it is quite different as it allows to see trends and dynamics of particular query, in contrast to pt-query-digest, which is just one static report.

Why looking into queries important? I gave an intro in my previous post from this series.

So Query Analytics give the report on the top queries. How to detect which

Drupal and MySQL Performance: Register now for Nov. 13 webinar
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Drupal is one of the most popular open source CMS applications available – and it runs primarily on a MySQL backend.  Out of the box, the schema is well tuned and indexed.  However, there are some ways to tweak the default installation to get more out of the system right from start.  Similarly, there is a fair bit of hidden flexibility (especially in the latest version) in terms of database configuration.

In a free MySQL webinar on Wednesday, November 13th at 1pm EST, I’ll go over some of the improvements in Drupal 7 in terms of database connectivity and operation as well as profile the default installation

This Wednesday in our next webinar I’ll share how to configure a better-performing MySQL 5.6 server. You’ll lean a practical approach to generating a sensible configuration file that sets what is needed and omits what is not.

Why dedicate an entire webinar to the new configuration settings within MySQL 5.6? Mainly because the default configuration files that come with MySQL 5.6 are not designed for high volume production use, and I’ve seen many MySQL incidents caused by poor configuration. Hopefully my

Amazon RDS with MySQL 5.6 – Configuration Variables

One longstanding complaint I have heard for the past several years, and still hear today, is that Amazon’s Relational Database Service (RDS) does not allow the configuration flexibility as running MySQL in an ec2 instance. While true, this ignores the consistent work that Amazon has done to provide access to the most important configuration variables needed to tune a MySQL instance (after all, how relevant is it for a customer to set bind_address in an RDS instance).

Good news everyone! I recently presented a webinar: Percona Server 5.6: Enterprise Grade MySQL. It was also recorded so you can watch along or view the slide deck. As with all my talks, I am not simply reading the slides so it really is worth to listen to the audio rather than just glance through the slide deck.

There were a number of great questions asked which I’ll answer below:

Q: How does Stewart feel about this version of 5.6 taking into consideration “Stewart’s .20 rule?” (ref 2013 Percona Live Conference).

Failure is an unavoidable part of IT life, but it does not always have to imply MySQL service downtime.
