Johan Nilsson is currently working as a MySQL-DBA on a large-scale installation with zero downtime requirements at one of Europe's largest supplier of smart alarms for homes and small businesses. He started his career as an UNIX systems and network administrator in 1999, and gradually shifted to working with database administration on systems with high uptime demands. This became the main focus in 2008. He also holds a Oracle 11g DBA OCP.
The presentation will be a real-life study on how we use PMM for monitoring of 120+ MySQL and ProxySQL-servers, as well as query optimisation
During the project, we found a few caveats, that others embarking this journey should be aware of. We've also found a few "hidden features", where we're able to use PMM in ways beyond the standard interfaces, due to the fact that it's all built on open and battle-tested software.
