Benchmarking MySQL Performance

Benchmarking lets you test how a system responds when it is given work to do, and removes the guesswork from your performance tuning efforts. The workloads you use when benchmarking are very different from real life deployments, which can be extremely variable. If you remember this, benchmarking is extremely useful, enabling you to measure current performance and determine the performance impact of any changes. Such changes could be the addition of new hardware or opening up your application to more users.

Benchmarking is one of the topics that you can learn more about by taking the MySQL Performance Tuning course. You can take this course in the following formats:

  • Training-on-Demand: Start training within 24 hours of registration, following lecture delivery at your own pace and scheduling time on a lab environment at your convenience.
  • Live-Virtual Events: Attend a live event from your own desk, no travel required. You can choose from a selection of events on the schedule to suit different timezones.
  • In-Class Events: Travel to an education center to take this course. Below is a selection of the events already on the schedule.

Developing with MySQL and NoSQL

MySQL adopts a very different approach to 'NoSQL' than other databases. With the memcached plugin, MySQL provides the speed and high availability benefits of a standard 'NoSQL' database solution, while mitigating many of the drawbacks to this approach.

A traditional memcached application bypasses the SQL layer entirely, and stores all its data in memory. This makes data access extremely fast, but there is a risk that the data will disappear in the event of a system problem. 

The MySQL memcached plugin for InnoDB also bypasses the SQL and optimization layers, resulting in excellent performance. It goes further, writing key-value data directly to  InnoDB tables. The result is fast data access while retaining the advantages provided by the existing relational database infrastructure, such as the ability to run complex queries with SQL, maintain data integrity, provide real-time analytics to the business, and work with big data platforms such as Hadoop.

MySQL Developers can learn about topics such as using NoSQL and memcached, as well as much more in the MySQL for Developers course.

This live 5-day instructor-led course is available as a:

  • Live-Virtual Event: Take this course from your own desk, no travel required. Choose from a selection of events on the schedule to suit different timezones.
