securing database servers

securing database serversPlease join Percona’s Chief Evangelist Colin Charles on Thursday, June 28th, 2018, as he presents Securing Database Servers From External attacks at 7:00 AM PDT (UTC-7) / 10:00 AM EDT (UTC-4).

 

A critical piece of your infrastructure is the database tier, yet people don’t pay enough attention to it judging by how many are bitten via poorly chosen defaults, or just a lack understanding of running a secure database tier. In this talk, I’ll focus on MySQL/MariaDB, PostgreSQL, and MongoDB, and cover external authentication, auditing, encryption, SSL, firewalls, replication, and more gems from over a decade of consulting in this space from Percona’s 4,000+ customers.

Webinar 6/27: MySQL Troubleshooting Best Practices: Monitoring the Production Database Without Killing Performance

performance troubleshooting MySQL monitoring tools

performance troubleshooting MySQL monitoring toolsPlease join Percona’s Principal Support Escalation Specialist Sveta Smirnova as she presents Troubleshooting Best Practices: Monitoring the Production Database Without Killing Performance on Wednesday, June 27th at 11:00 AM PDT (UTC-7) / 2:00 PM EDT (UTC-4).

 

During the MySQL Troubleshooting webinar series, I covered many monitoring and logging tools such as:

  • General, slow, audit, binary, error log files
  • Performance Schema
  • Information Schema
  • System variables
  • Linux utilities
  • InnoDB monitors
  • PMM

However, I did not spend much time on the impact these instruments have on overall MySQL performance. And they do have an impact.

And this is the conflict many people face. MySQL Server users try exploring these monitoring instruments, see that they slow down their installations, and turn them off. This is unfortunate. If the instrument that can help you resolve a problem is OFF, you won’t have good and necessary information to help understand when, how and why the issue occurred. In the best case, you’ll re-enable instrumentation and wait for the next disaster occurrence. In the worst case, you try various fix options without any real knowledge if they solve the problem or not.

This is why it is important to understand the impact monitoring tools have on your database, and therefore how to minimize it.

Understanding and controlling the impact of MySQL monitoring tools

In this webinar, I cover why certain monitoring tools affect performance, and how to minimize the impact without turning the instrument off. You will learn how to monitor safely and effectively.

Query performance is essential in making any application successful. In order to finely tune your queries you first need to understand how MySQL executes them, and what tools are available to help identify problems.

In this session you will learn:

  1. The common tools for researching problem queries
  2. What an Index is, and why you should use one
  3. Index limitations
  4. When to rewrite the query instead of just adding a new index
