Areas to Tune When Improving MySQL Database Performance

When looking to improve the performance of a MySQL Database, remember that the database is not the only factor that affects performance. Applications or the infrastructure that support them can cause significant bottlenecks which are independent of the database. Therefore, start by taking a big picture view of performance and as well as tuning the MySQL server instance, consider application tuning or operating system tuning.

To learn more about this and other key performance tuning topics, take the MySQL Performance Tuning training course. You can take this 4-day course through the following formats:

  • Training-on-Demand: Start training within 24 hours of registering, following lecture material at your own pace through streaming video and booking time on a lab environment to suit your schedule.
  • Live-Virtual Event: Attend a live event from your own desk, choosing from a selection of events on the schedule to suit different timezones.
  • In-Class Event: Travel to an education center to take this class. Below is a selection of the events already on the schedule.

    MySQL and PHP, Two Technologies for High-Performing Web Sites

    MySQL and PHP are two technologies that are popular in the web developer community based on their combined strengths. Those responsible for these technologies work hard to provide you with easy to use interfaces ensuring smooth integration that helps you create high performing websites.

    To learn more, take the MySQL and PHP - Developing Dynamic Web Applications training course.

    You will learn about topics including how to:

    • Use SQL query commands to retrieve data from the MySQL database
    • Change table data using the SQL Data Manipulation Language (DML) commands
    • Retrieve data from multiple MySQL tables using Joins
    • Create web based forms that interact with the end user and the data within MySQL
    • Use session handling to authenticate and monitor user identities
    • Describe the purpose of template systems

    You can take this 4-day instructor-led course by traveling to an education center such as in Rome, Italy on the 3rd-6th of November 2014, where delivery will be in Italian.

    For easier access, you can take this course from your own desk through a live-virtual event. There are live-virtual events on the schedule to suit different time-zones. Dates include 7th October and 11th November 2014 and 20th January, 31st March, and 26th May 2015.
