This was presented at Percona Live MySQL Conference and Expo 2015 at https://www.percona.com/live/mysql-conference-2015/sessions/database-defense-depth
"It looks like a database problem"
This is a pretty common phrase that comes up when triaging a production issue if MySQL is in the critical path. Often enough, the problems can be tracked down to new query patterns, edge cases in our company's applications, or even bugs in MySQL.
In this talk, I'll describe the tools built by the DBAs at Box to help proactively monitor and defend their MySQL infrastructure. I'll also discuss our learnings from running these defenses over the past 3 years and how it has
influenced new procedures and software development patterns for MySQL at Box.
