MySQL 5.7: Introduction for Operational DBAs

MySQL 5.7 is a great release, providing valuable features for both daily operations and ongoing development. In this, part two of our ongoing 5.7 webinar series, we will look into the new MySQL 5.7 features and enhancements that improve operations, with a specific focus on monitoring. These include:





  • An improved optimizer, including updates to EXPLAIN and enhanced JSON support
  • Performance and scalability improvements for the InnoDB storage engine, including temp tables, spatial types and full text search parsing
  • Security improvements, such as a password expiration policy
  • Performance and sys schema improvements, such as memory usage, metadata locks, monitoring capabilities and reduced footprint/overhead
  • Better online server management
  • Improved replication functions, including new statements for multi-source replication and better monitoring

MySQL 5.7 promises to be faster, more robust, and more secure. We look forward to seeing you at the webinar!
