  Using MySQLtuner 2.0 to monitor and improve mysql performance

Speaker: Sheeri K. Cabral

With help from Major Hayden, mysqltuner's original author, Sheeri
K. Cabral of the Pythian Group has modified mysqltuner to be more
comprehensive, to output information and to have a "spreadsheet" mode
where the results of mysqltuner are outputted as a single column, so
that you can easily compare subsequent runs of the modified mysqltuner
- -- for example, running it monthly or weekly to see how performance is
progressing (or degrading). There is also a truly offline mode that
requires no database connectivity where files containing the output of
go through how the the modified mysqltuner works including how easy it
is to change what is checked and the thresholds, so that you can
easily do one-off sanity checks as well as regular monitoring.

Sheeri K. Cabral (The Pythian Group) is a noted MySQL community
activist who recently wrote The MySQL Administrator's Bible.
