I will be presenting The Care and Feeding of a MySQL Database for Linux System Administrators at Linuxcon. This is a short talk on what Linux Admins can do to get their MySQL instances performing properly, where to budget your server money, and some other tips to make life easier. It can not turn a good system admin into a good DBA no more than a 40 minute talk on being a Linux Admin will make a DBA a good Linux Admin. But it is a good overview of the subject. And for the sake of the environment, I will be recycling all my old jokes again. So see you Friday, 3:00 in Plaza B in the Hyatt Regency in Vancouver.
