Choosing right Hardware components, configuring them properly, and optimizing Linux settings are very important for MySQL and other database server deployments. But they are frequently overlooked. I have seen many cases that H/W and Linux settings were wrongly configured on production environments.

Changing configurations after going live is not easy. Some Linux settings such as I/O scheduler can be changed dynamically, but many of the settings can not be changed without stopping MySQL. It is important for infrastructure engineers to understand Linux and H/W tuning and monitoring best practices. Learning best practices will certainly improve performance and stability.

This tutorial will be based on what the speaker had a presentation at the MySQL Conference and Expo 2011, but will add many hot topics after that.
