While traditionally MySQL has been deployed on Linux hosts, a significant percentage of users are running it on Microsoft® Windows. Accordingly, many MySQL DBAs with a Unix/Linux sysadmin background can feel lost working within this environment.
Join Percona Sr. Consultant Fernando Ipar as he reviews the main differences that can be found when running MySQL in these two environments. He will also discuss which Percona Toolkit tools work with Windows. The focus will be on helping Linux-based experts feel more comfortable with Windows. However, the information presented will also be useful for experienced Windows administrators who may not have enough MySQL knowledge.
Percona Toolkit contains advanced command-line tools to help MySQL administrators perform a variety of MySQL server and system tasks that are too difficult or complex to perform manually. Percona Toolkit supports all versions of MySQL including Percona Server, MariaDB, and MySQL by Oracle. For more information and to download this free software, visit the Percona Toolkit page.
