With servers having the power of supercomputers from a few years ago, MySQL and other applications now have plenty of horsepower available to them.
For those cases where you need to wring all the power available, there are some specific tuning interactions between Linux and MySQL that can help speed things along, and make efficient use of all the resources.
Of course, testing in the real world is required to know if any tuning helps or hurts, so we’ll cover some techniques for that, too.
