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.

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.

Configuring MySQL Server for Optimal Performance

Configuring MySQL Server, with the dozens of options available, has always been perceived as a bit of a black art. In MySQL Database 5.6, configuring your MySQL server for optimal performance is easier than ever before.

In the MySQL for Database Administrators course you can learn more.

MySQL 5.6 is configured to work faster out of the box in a wide range of installation scenarios and it is easier than ever to set up the server by adjusting only a small number of settings which cause others to be set. In addition, you get a new default my.cnf file with instructions guiding your through adjusting key settings. The MySQL for Database Administrators course describes many of these settings, allowing you to make an informed choice on how best to configure your server.

You can take this instructor-led course through different delivery methods:

  • Training-on-Demand: You can take this course at your own pace, starting training within 24 hours of registration.
  • Live-Virtual Event: You can attend a live event from your own desk, no travel required. Choose from a selection of events on the schedule to suit different time zones.
