It was quite an exciting time to be at the MySQL conference and i could experience the upbeat in the land of MySQL. Here is my quick comments on few of the sessions i liked:
Best Practices for Database Administrators
DTrace and MySQL
Best Practices for Deploying MySQL on the Solaris Platform
Just-In-Time Scalability: Agile Methods to Support Massive Growth
Performance Guide to MySQL Cluster, Helping InnoDB Scale on Servers with Many CPU Cores and Disks
- Sheeri from Pythian, covered a great deal of DB Admin practices around Monitoring services, Backup/Restore, Documentation, Trouble Shootiong. Overall the session was very entertaining with all her cartoons and style of preso.
- This sesssion was even cooler. Just with a few simple lines of dtrace scripts, you could watch what queries are being processed by mysql daemon
- Solaris and MySQL - the combo looked like theey are made for each other for production deployments. The 64bit support and SMF service on Solaris for MySQL makes it easier and robust. Dtrace Chime tool looks good too.
- Excellent case study where IMVU started with a small setup and worked on it iteratively to build an architecture with which they could scale as well work on HA setup."
These sessions on Performance benchmarking and MySQL Cluster that were really good and very informative.
