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.
