During our session we will give these 5 minute DBA’s the tools and skills to start helping to efficiently find bottlenecks and resolve them . This intro into database troubleshooting and optimization will walk through at a high-level various tools and tricks of the trade (top, iostat, sar, cacti, explain, maatkit, etc) and give examples on how they can be used when it really hits the fan.
