Goal Driven Performance Optimization for MySQL

Best Practices for Businesses
23 April 2:20pm - 3:10pm @ Ballroom C

Goal Driven Performance Optimization is a powerful method of performance analysis and optimization that focuses on delivering the results you need for maximum efficiency in application performance.

We will start with an introduction to performance metrics that correspond to the end user's take on system performance. We will look into what to measure and how to measure it.

Once we have defined the metrics, we can define current and future performance goals for the system, factoring in changing database loads and data size.

We will show you how to apply these principles in practice for MySQL, using the modern tools available.
