We created a checklist of common but deadly MySQL problems to make your life easier.  If handled reactively, these issues can lead to unacceptable downtime, unnecessary costs, malicious attacks, frustrated users, and lost business.

This white paper will help busy DBAs and their management better identify and understand common MySQL implementation, performance, and recovery problems. You can minimize or prevent these problems through proactive and diligent MySQL administration best practices. 

The white paper provides real-world examples from Percona customers for each problem. Tips and related resources from our MySQL experts for each issue can help with your MySQL environment.

Please note that this version combines and updates the 3-part series published in 2014.
