3 hours tutorial


MySQL, Observability & Monitoring

Performance Schema is a powerful diagnostic instrument for:

- Query performance

- Complicated locking issues

- Memory leaks
- Resource usage
- Problematic behavior, caused by inappropriate settings
- More

It comes with hundreds of options which allow precisely tuning what to instrument. More than 100 consumers store collected data.

In this tutorial, we will try all the important instruments out. We will provide a test environment and a few typical problems which could be hardly solved without Performance Schema. You will not only learn how to collect and use this information but have experience with it.
