Real World Scalability and MySQL Tuning tutorial with MySQLs Jay Pipes.
First half (from me): Scalability Architecture and various tricks and hacks
Second half (from Jay Pipes): MySQL Tuning
(Los Angeles Perl Mongers also got a version of this talk in March 2007)
The outline is roughly as below, but the 60 minute version - ~90 slides. Now with information on high availability, disaster recovery and more!
Aka Real World Web Scalability - MySQL Edition
An extended version of last years talk! Now more than 70 slides full of content in 45 minutes, lots of fun!
45 minutes of fast paced elegant tips, dirty tricks, and hard-learned lessons.
- Learn how to build your overall architecture to beat the pants off yesterdays micro-optimizations
- Horizontal scaling: the geek girl next door
- Caching here, there, and everywhere
- MySQL configuration
- Table types and tweaks
- Replication strategies
- When to use what where
- How to avoid scaling vertically on the backend
- Partition your data the right way when your database can't keep up
- The when, where, and what about session data
- Offload light jobs to light processes
- Manage your resources to get the most out of your hardware
- Make a job queue to gracefully deal with big traffic peaks
YOU can play with the Big Boys and do thousands of dynamic requests per second. Some extra thought into the overall architecture beats the pants off any amount of micro-optimizations. You'll learn exactly how to do it.
Why horizontal scaling rocks. Why vertical scaling sucks. Which caching strategies work best when and why. Benchmarking techniques -- How to measure accurately. How to avoid scaling vertically on the backend. Scaling your database systems without shelling out for that gazillion dollar Sun box. Segment your data the right way when your database can't keep up. The when, where and what about session data. Manage your resources to get the most out of your hardware. Make a job queue to gracefully deal with big traffic peaks.
Ask Bjørn Hansen once architected and built the core of a major internet advertising system plastering ads on hundreds of thousands of screens every minute. The session will also touch experiences from Citysearch and the insane peak loads at Ticketmaster.com.
