MySQL 5.6 Configuration Optimization Webinar, Sept. 25

 | September 24, 2013 |  Posted In: Insight for DBAs, MySQL, MySQL Webinars


Webinar: MySQL 5.6 Configuration OptimizationThis Wednesday in our next webinar I’ll share how to configure a better-performing MySQL 5.6 server. You’ll lean a practical approach to generating a sensible configuration file that sets what is needed and omits what is not.

Why dedicate an entire webinar to the new configuration settings within MySQL 5.6? Mainly because the default configuration files that come with MySQL 5.6 are not designed for high volume production use, and I’ve seen many MySQL incidents caused by poor configuration. Hopefully my advice will save you the headache of tweaking the variables within MySQL’s configuration files in order to work within your organization’s unique business environment.

And while I’ll be doing most of the talking, I do look forward to your questions during the webinar, titled “MySQL 5.6 Configuration Optimization.” It will begin at 10 a.m. Pacific time and run for about an hour. So please tune in on Wednesday, Sept. 25 at 10 a.m. You can register here to reserve your spot.

I welcome your questions both during the webinar and in the comments section below. See you Wednesday!
