The internet is littered with stories of startups and big companies that have run into scaling or performance problems related to MySQL. It’s often not completely their fault. MySQL’s out-of-the-box performance lulled them into a false sense of security that resulted in little plannning or performance tuning.
In this session, we’ll look at common mistakes, configuration errors, and decisions that can make or break performance. Real-world examples will come from high profile web sites like Yahoo, Craigslist, and Friendster.
Jeremy joined craigslist after over eight years in a variety of roles at Yahoo! He hacks on MySQL, search, and various back-end bits of the craigslist infrastructure.
Jeremy blogs at http://jeremy.zawodny.com/blog/ and flies both small airplanes and gliders in his spare time.
