Database systems as a distinct software technology is now coming of age, and it is time to look at the history. Where did it start, what was driving the changes, what made SQL so successful and what is the next big thing? With so many database professionals at one place with diverse backgrounds, this could turn into a real interesting debate.
Are you interested in splitting your application's reads and writes, so writes go to the master and SELECT queries go to slaves? This session is for you. Learn common patterns, pitfalls, and solutions.
Disks are often credited with being the biggest performance bottleneck to any database system. This session introduces you to Linux diagnostic tools, hardware purchasing options, and how you should be thinking about IO.
Database operations gets interesting when it involves several thousand databases, a high-profile site and you have a small core team of DBAs. Among other things, we will give a high-level overview of Facebook database architecture, Backup (and recovery) strategy and the mysql upgrade process.
Many people view topics like Map/Reduce and queue systems as advanced concepts that require in-depth knowledge and time consuming software setup. Gearman is changing all that by making this barrier to entry as low as possible with an open source, distributed job queuing system. This session looks at advanced use cases that demonstrate the power and flexibility of distributed architectures.
This talk is for those that know the basics of replication but want to take it to another level. We will show you how replication can solve complicated problems, give you better performance, and avoid excess downtime.
Discuss what to look at when regular monitoring information is not descriptive enough. Review how to obtain useful status snapshots and how to interpret the results using real world examples covering items like: replication health, memory allocation, network issues and performance.
