Webinar Wednesday, May 9, 2018: MySQL Troubleshooting and Performance Optimization with Percona Monitoring and Management (PMM)

MySQL Troubleshooting

MySQL TroubleshootingPlease join Percona’s CEO, Peter Zaitsev as he presents MySQL Troubleshooting and Performance Optimization with PMM on Wednesday, May 9, 2018, at 11:00 AM PDT (UTC-7) / 2:00 PM EDT (UTC-4).

Optimizing MySQL performance and troubleshooting MySQL problems are two of the most critical and challenging tasks for MySQL DBAs. The databases powering your applications must handle heavy traffic loads while remaining responsive and stable so that you can deliver an excellent user experience. Further, DBAs’ bosses expect solutions that are cost-efficient.

In this webinar, Peter discusses how you can optimize and troubleshoot MySQL performance and demonstrate how Percona Monitoring and Management (PMM) enables you to solve these challenges using free and open source software. We will look at specific, common MySQL problems and review the essential components in PMM that allow you to diagnose and resolve them.

Webinar Wednesday 4/12: Tuning MongoDB Consistency

Tuning MongoDB

Tuning MongoDBPlease join Percona’s Senior Technical Operations Architect Tim Vaillancourt as he presents Tuning MongoDB Consistency on April 12, 2017 at 10:00 am PDT /
1:00 pm EDT (UTC-7).

 Welcome to part two of Percona’s tuning series. In our previous webinar, we mentioned some of the best practices for MongoDB tuning. What if you still need better performance after following the tuning advice in the first webinar? Part two takes a closer look at some of the some of the other options to consider when tuning queries.

In this webinar, we will cover:

  • Consistency, atomicity and isolation in MongoDB
  • Replica set rollbacks, and the risks to your data
  • Integrity vs. scalability tradeoffs to consider during development
  • Using read concerns and write concerns to tune your application data consistency
  • When to use Read Preference, and the tradeoffs of doing so
  • Tuning your MongoDB deployment and server configuration for data integrity/consistency
  • Performing cluster-wide consistent backups

By the end of the webinar you will have a better understanding of how to use MongoDB’s features to achieve a required balance of consistency and scalability.

Webinar Thursday, June 16: MongoDB Schema Design

MongoDB Schema Design

MongoDB Schema DesignPlease join Jon Tobin, Director of Solutions Engineering at Percona on Thursday, June 16, 2016 10:00am PDT (UTC-7) for a webinar on “MongoDB® Schema Design.”

Jon will discuss the most common misconception when evaluating the use of MongoDB: that it is “schemaless.” THIS IS NOT TRUE. MongoDB has a document structure, and thus, a schema. While the structure is much more dynamic than that of most relational database models, choices that you make can and will pay themselves forward (or haunt you forever).

In this webinar, we’ll cover what a document is, how they can be structured, and what structures work (and don’t work) for a particular use case. We will also touch on design decisions and how they affect the ability of the cluster to scale in the future. Some of the topics that will be covered are:

  • Document Structure
  • Embedding vs Referencing
  • Normalization vs De-Normalization
  • Atomicity
  • MongoDB Sharding

Register here.
