MySQL’s configuration file is often the focus of too much attention, and too much tweaking of variables that make no difference—or worse, have the potential to negatively impact performance. The sample default configuration files that come with MySQL are unfortunately not very helpful or good, either. You’ll learn a practical approach to generate a sensible configuration file that sets what’s needed and omits what isn’t. The result will be a more stable and performant server that’s resistant to many common problems.
Peter managed the High Performance Group within MySQL until 2006, when he founded Percona. Peter has a Master’s Degree in Computer Science and is an expert in database kernels, computer hardware, and application scaling.
