Publisher Comments:

Now that MySQL has proven to be a robust product for large, demanding environments, both programmers and administrators want more information on how to get the most out of it. High Performance MySQL goes beyond the basics to explain how MySQL works under the hood so that experienced users can understand why it's fast and, conversely, what can slow it down. In this new edition, you'll learn how to maximize the speed and robustness of MySQL through advanced configuration, and methods to optimize everything from schemas, queries, server settings and applications to operating systems, and hardware — topics that typical MySQL books don't cover very well. Other requirements for scaling MySQL, such as replication, backups, and load balancing, are thoroughly discussed as well. This is not a book on MySQL theory — it's a collection of hands-on methods for solving real-world problems, by authors who have the experience to back it up. High Performance MySQL includes: Clustering solutions Impacts of new features of MySQL 5.0/5.1, including stored procedures, partitioned databases, triggers, and views Expanded comparisons of storage engines and optimization techniques specific to each one Federation (scaling by dividing data among different servers or different clusters) Optimization of subqueries Use of the new information schema to retrieve data about the server and your databases Optimization of advanced querying features, such as full text searches and the use of cursors With this book, you'll discover good practices for large demanding environments, and learn about MySQL's weaknesses and how to work around them. High Performance MySQL offers the advanced solutions you need to ensure asmoothly functioning database-driven website.

Book News Annotation:

Schwartz, a software engineer, et al. instruct readers on the advanced techniques of MySQL 5.0 and 5.1, explaining how to design schemas, indexes, and queries, and advanced features. They overview its architecture, then discuss benchmarking and profiling, improving its performance, security, and other topics. This edition has been revised and expanded, and emphasizes performance and reliability. It covers storage engines, new features, building large scalable systems, new options for backups and replication, and the optimization of advanced querying features. Four appendices have been added, on transferring large files, using EXPLAIN and Sphinx, and debugging locks. Annotation ©2008 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

Users of MySQL find they have to deal with issues of reliability, scalability, and performance. This book is an insider's guide to these variables that are not well documented, but are critical to a smoothly functioning site.

Synopsis:

High Performance MySQL is the definitive guide to building fast, reliable systems with MySQL. Written by noted experts with years of real-world experience building very large systems, this book covers every aspect of MySQL performance in detail, and focuses on robustness, security, and data integrity.

High Performance MySQL teaches you advanced techniques in depth so you can bring out MySQL's full power. Learn how to design schemas, indexes, queries and advanced MySQL features for maximum performance, and get detailed guidance for tuning your MySQL server, operating system, and hardware to their fullest potential. You'll also learn practical, safe, high-performance ways to scale your applications with replication, load balancing, high availability, and failover.

This second edition is completely revised and greatly expanded, with deeper coverage in all areas. Major additions include:

  • Emphasis throughout on both performance and reliability
  • Thorough coverage of storage engines, including in-depth tuning and optimizations for the InnoDB storage engine
  • Effects of new features in MySQL 5.0 and 5.1, including stored procedures, partitioned databases, triggers, and views
  • A detailed discussion on how to build very large, highly scalable systems with MySQL
  • New options for backups and replication
  • Optimization of advanced querying features, such as full-text searches
  • Four new appendices

The book also includes chapters on benchmarking, profiling, backups, security, and tools and techniques to help you measure, monitor, and manage your MySQL installations.

About the Author

A former manager of the High Performace Group at MySQL AB, Peter Zaitsev now runs the mysqlperformanceblog.com site. He specializes in helping administrators fix issues with Web sites handling millions of visitors a day, dealing with terabytes of data using hundreds of servers. He is used to making changes and upgrades both to hardware to software (such as query optimization) in order to find solutions. He also speaks frequently at conferences.

Vadim Tkachenko was a Performance Engineer in at MySQL AB. As an expert in multithreaded programming and synchronization, his primary tasks were benchmarks, profiling, and finding bottlenecks. He also worked on a number of features for performance monitoring and tuning, and getting MySQL to scale well on multiple CPUs.

Jeremy Zawodny and his two cats moved from Northwest Ohio to Silicon Valley in late 1999 so he could work for Yahoo!--just in time to witness the .com bubble bursting first-hand. He's been at Yahoo!® ever since, helping to put MySQL and other Open Source technologies to use in fun, interesting, and often very big ways. Starting with the popular and high-traffic Yahoo! Finance site, he worked to make MySQL part of the site's core infrastructure in large batch operations as well as real-time feed processing and serving content directly on the site. He then helped to spread "the MySQL religion" to numerous other groups within Yahoo!, including News, Personals, Sports, and Shopping. Nowadays he acts as Yahoo!'s MySQL guru, working with Yahoo!'s many engineering groups to get the most out of their MySQL deployments.

In 2000, he began writing for Linux Magazine and continues to do so today as a columnist and contributing editor. After over a year of active participation on the MySQL mailing list, he got the idea to write a book about MySQL. (How hard could it be, really?) You can still find him answering questions on the list today. Since 2001, Jeremy has been speaking about MySQL at various conferences (O'Reilly's Open Source Conference, PHPCon, The MySQL User Conference, etc.) and user groups in locations as far away as Bangalore, India. His favorite topics are performance tuning, replication, clustering, and backup/recovery. In more recent times, he's rediscovered his love of aviation, earning a Private Pilot Glider license in early 2003. Since then he's spent far too much of his free time flying gliders out of Hollister, California and Truckee, near Lake Tahoe. He hopes to soon earn his Commercial Pilot license and then go on to become a certified flight instructor someday. Occasional MySQL consulting also helps to pay for his flying addiction.

Derek J. Balling has been a Linux system administrator since 1996. He
has helped build and maintain server infrastructure for companies like
Yahoo, and institutions like Vassar College. He has also written
articles for The Perl Journal and a number of online magazines, and is
on the Program Committee for the 2008 LISA Conference. He is currently
employed as the Data Center Manager for Answers.com.

When not working on computer-related issues, Derek enjoys spending
time with his wife Debbie, and their posse of animals (4 cats and a
dog). He also makes his opinion known on current events or whatever is
