The best way to understand your application’s performance is to have good instrumentation in your application. This session will teach you how to instrument your application’s usage of MySQL and Memcached. This will enable you to measure where bottlenecks come from, which is always the first step. Next, you’ll see how to analyze the data you’ve gathered, so you can understand what performance optimizations are most important. We will focus on a PHP application using MySQL and Memcached to provide real-life examples, but the approaches presented in this application are generally applicable.
