If you happen to wander by The O'Reilly and Associates web site soon, you'll notice a new book featured in the "Hot off the Press" section of the home page:
High Performance MySQL is an insider's guide to the poorly documented issues of MySQL reliability, scalability, and performance. The book gives in-depth coverage of MySQL indexing and optimization so you can make better use of these key features. You'll learn practical replication, backup, and load-balancing strategies with information that goes beyond available tools to discuss their effects in real-life environments. And you'll learn the supporting techniques you need to carry out these tasks, including advanced configuration, benchmarking, and investigating logs. Sample Chapter 7, Replication, is available free online.
In related news, I got my first physical copy of the book today. (Had I gone to work on Friday, I would have had it then like Derek did.) Over on the High Performance MySQL weblog, you can read about the first review as well as other book news as it comes in.
I'm headed to the MySQL User Conference in Orlando for the week (and I almost have my slides done too!), so blogging will probably be light and MySQL related when it happens. Hopefully the WiFi is up and running well.
O'Reilly plans to have copies available at the conference. Why not join us in Orlando and get an autographed copy? You can buy one before they're available in stores! :-)
