The best way to performance tune a system is to find out what your bottlenecks are, and attacking those first. In the first part of this session, I'll be looking at some of the issues faced with common database workloads. From there, I'll then be showing how you can get more information out of MySQL and your Operating System to find out about your workload. This session is designed for beginner to intermediate MySQL users.
Andrew Aksyonoff speaks at the April 2009 Los Angeles MySQL User Group about how to use Sphinx, the free open source full-text search engine.

At the March Boston MySQL User Group meeting, Jacob Nikom of MIT's Lincoln Laboratory presented "Optimizing Concurrent Storage and Retrieval Operations for Real-Time Surveillance Applications."
