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.

InnoDB, The Choice for High Concurrency Database Systems

InnoDB has proven to be a reliable data storage engine for modern, high concurrency database systems. It is fully ACID compliant, and supports a wide range of isolation modes, from READ-UNCOMMITEED to SERIALIZABLE.

InnoDB multiversion concurrency control (MVCC) enables records and tables to be updated without the overhead associated with row-level locking mechanisms. The MVCC implementation in InnoDB largely eliminates the need to lock tables or rows during updates, and enables good performance for high concurrency workloads.

To learn more about this subject and related performance tuning topics tuning, take the MySQL Performance Tuning training course. This 4-day, instructor-led course is available as:

  • Training-on-Demand: Start training within 24 hours of registration. You will follow lecture material at your own pace through streaming video and you can book time on a lab environment to suit your schedule.

Optimizing MySQL, Improving Performance of Database Servers

Optimization involves improving the performance of a database server and queries that run against it. Optimization reduces query execution time and optimized queries benefit everyone that uses the server. When the server runs more smoothly and processes more queries with less, it performs better as a whole. To learn more about how a MySQL developer can make a difference with optimization, take the MySQL Developers training course.

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

  • Live-Virtual Event: Attend a live class from your own desk - no travel required. Choose from a selection of events on the schedule to suit different timezones.

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.
