Care and Feeding of a MySQL Server for Linux Administrators

I will be presenting Care and Feeding of a MySQL Server for Linux Adminstrators twice in August. The first is August 2nd at the Oracle Office in Frisco, Texas at 4:30 PM (Suite 300 ,7640 Warren Parkway, Frisco, TX). We will have refreshments, door prizes, and a discussion about having a meeting (or two) in the Irving office.

The second will be August 19th, in Plaza B, Hyatt Regency Vancouver at 3PM at Linuxcon North America.

This presentation developed from requests from Linux Administrators who know MySQL runs great on commodity hardware. But they want to make sure that they get their servers set up to get the best possible performance. This is a presentation to turn anyone into a DBA after forty minutes. But it will help a Linux admin create the foundation for great MySQL servers. Topics cover including disk caches, configuration, replication, CPU selection, I/O and monitoring.

Hope to see you at both!
