50 minutes conference
Too many DBAs focus solely on MySQL configuration, without considering the tremendous benefits that can be achieved on the systems side. This presentation will provide a high level overview of how linux internals work (covering such topics as memory management, filesystems, networking, and process scheduling) and talk specifically about how they interact with MySQL. Attendees will be able to understand better how MySQL interacts with Linux and how they can use system configuration and tools to better manage their MySQL instances.
