“When data grows, MySQL multiplies.” When data grows, a standard configuration does not fit anymore. This hands-on lab walks through the ways MySQL has to adapt to an ever-increasing amount of data in context of tuning, under the heading “multiplication”:
—Scaling up through partitioning and how partitioning can help manage/archive data
—How to relocate binlog, undo, redo, tablespaces, and more on different mount points to take advantage of multiple storages
—All improvements to parallel slave replication
—A quick OS approach, to verify swapping and affinity tuning take the most out of the machine.
