Choosing right Hardware components, configuring them properly, and optimizing Linux settings are very important for MySQL and other database server deployments. But they are frequently overlooked. I have seen many cases that H/W and Linux settings were wrongly configured on production environments. Changing configurations after going live is not easy. Some Linux settings such as I/O scheduler can be changed dynamically, but many of the settings can not be changed without stopping MySQL.

It is essential to understand how your system performs at different workloads to measure the impacts of changes and growth and to understand how those impacts will manifest. Measuring the performance of current workloads is not trivial and the creation of a staging environment where different workloads need to be tested has it's own set of challenges.

The Sakila sample database makes for a great mini-tutorial on how to design, create, load and use a data warehouse. This is the main thread of this mini tutorial. While the main thread of the turorial focuses on general business intelligence and data warehouse concepts, the tutorial also contains hands-on parts. The hands-on parts are a great way to get introduced to a variety of open source tools (mainly focused on the Pentaho) for building and developing data warehouses and business intelligence applications. To facilitate attendees in participating themselves in the hands-on parts, I...

MySQL security is critical to most organizations. This tutorial takes an in-depth look at using white-hat google hacking (the good kind of hacking, where you have permission) techniques to show you what the "bad guys" can do. You will learn about the following hacking strategies and how they are done: SQL injection, cross-site scripting (XSS), cross-site request forgery (CSRF), gateway vulnerabilities and social engineering, all without violating Google's Terms of Service. We will also discuss how to minimize impact and how to perform forensics.

The performance of a DBMS system depends on its two main components - optimizer and storage engine (typically InnoDB). The primary focus of MySQL community has been the storage engine, however, recent versions of both MySQL and MariaDB have (partially overlapping) improved optimizer features, better optimizer control and diagnostics. The goal of this tutorial is to empower the MariaDB/MySQL user with the knowledge how to utilize and control both new and old optimizer features to achieve performance improvements from several times up to several orders of magnitude.
