The Proper Care and Feeding of a MySql Database for Linux Administrators - Dave Stokes, Oracle

Sign up or log in to save this event to your list and see who's attending!


MySql Database Administrators are in short supply and high demand. Linux admins can quickly pick up the skills needed to become a DBA. Often Linux Admins 'inherit' MySql instances and find them troublesome, stubborn, and willful. This session will cover how databases are different than other servers, how to best spend scare upgrade funds, what to monitor to see if your databases are happy, and how to optimize systems to keep users happy. Topics covered include backups, replication, configuration, high availability, where problems will appear, what you can ignore, and basic security. You should be an entry to mid-level Linux Admin and understand filesystems before attending. Additional information on new features of MySql 5.6 as how they will make life easier for DBAs will be included where appropriate. Become a MySql DBA as they are in high demand!
