Optimizing MySQL Database Application Performance with DTrace
By Nicholas Slipp on Jan 29, 2009
In today’s increasingly web based business environment, new services and applications are emerging daily. In that spirit it’s becoming increasingly important for enterprises to harness efficient and flexible environments that can scale and adapt, deploy new services quickly, and keep valuable information secure.
The complete SAMP (Solaris™ Operating System (OS), Apache, MySQL™ database, Perl) application stack grouped with high-performance servers and storage (Open Storage anyone?) positions organizations to create environments that are capable of supporting rapidly evolving and highly trafficked Web sites.
In that spirit, check out a new Sun BluePrints™ white paper that illustrates the benefits in taking advantage of Solaris Dynamic Tracing (DTrace) probes to help simplify MySQL database application tuning.
