Is my MySQL server configured properly? Should I run Community MySQL, MariaDB, Percona or WebScaleSQL? How many innodb buffer pool instances should I run? Why should I NOT use the query cache? How do I size the innodb log file size and what IS that innodb log anyway? All answers are inside.
Aurimas Mikalauskas is a former Percona performance consultant and architect currently writing and teaching at speedemy.com. He's been involved with MySQL since 1999, scaling and optimizing MySQL backed systems since 2004 for companies such as BBC, EngineYard, famous social networks and small shops like EstanteVirtual, Pine Cove and hundreds of others.
