Description

System administrators invariably write scripts to help automate the work they do, but rarely have time to learn a language from top to bottom. They just need enough to get the job done. In this course, Python Quick Start for Linux System Administrators, you'll quickly get immersed in the Python language in the context of realistic system administration tasks. First, you'll survey the various development environments and learn the core language features. Next, you'll meet the key library modules that allow Python scripts to interact with the rest of the Linux system. Finally, you'll explore processing and modifying text files. When you're finished with this course, you'll have the skills to write simple (and not so simple) sysadmin scripts in Python and have an understanding of the "pythonic" mindset.

Hi Everyone,

My Name is Pinal Dave, welcome to my course, Monitoring MySQL with Performance Schema.

I am a Database Tuning Expert at SQLAuthority.com.

Data is very important for any application but database performance is even more important. Everybody wants maximum performance for their application.

Monitoring database for resource consumption and bottleneck is very important task for any DBA. Once we know how each of the resources are consumed we can come up with tricks to optimize the consumption of the same.

Some of the major topics in this course we will cover include:

  • Getting Started with performance schema
  • Identifying Resource Bottlenecks
  • Understanding Resource Utilization and finally,
  • Addressing Common Monitoring Real World Scenarios
By the end of this course, you will know how to monitor your MySQL with the help of Performance Schema.

I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn Monitoring MySQL with Performance Schema.
