Having seen that several others (Radwin: HTTP Caching and Cache-busting, Kruckenberg: Using MySQL for Binary Storage, Brad: LiveJournal's backend and memcached; past, present, and future) have blogged about their OSCON 2004 presentations being accepted, I thought I'd do the same.
This year I proposed two talks. The abstracts are pretty limited so far, but here's what I've got:
MySQL Performance Workshop
This is a 3 hour tutorial style talk aimed at all MySQL users.
This session will cover the various factors that affect MySQL server and application performance. The session will begin with a high-level overview of performance limiting factors before digging into each of the topics in more detail. Included in the discussion are: hardware, OS choices, MySQL's storage engines, and application design decisions. From there, we'll look at the tools and techniques required to diagnose performance bottlenecks. We'll spend the remainder of the time discussing techniques for growing applications beyond a single MySQL server, including replication, clustering, partitioning.
MySQL High Availability Options
This is a 90 minute talk aimed at experienced MySQL users.
One can achieve varying degrees of high-availability for MySQL using a variety of techniques as well as free and commercial software. This session will provide an overview of the options, discuss the pros and cons of each and make general recommendations
I used some of the input from the MySQL Talk Ideas Needed post to formulate those. Thanks to everyone who responded in public and private.
