Wed, 30 May 2012 17:22:00 +0000

MySQL statistics are used by the optimizer for query plans. Having up to date statistics helps the optimizer “choose” the least expensive way to execute a query.

Man time goes by fast. Only about a week left before Tek. I have to admit to being rather excited about it. I will be giving a tutorial on Optimizing MySQL Essentials that will cover many areas including queries and the server. I also have a regular session called “Why be Normal” that will be […]

Sat, 02 Apr 2011 12:00:41 +0000

Short Braindump: – undo log == rollback segment – everything kept within the tablespace – primarily for removing data changes that had been written to disk when a crash occurred, but should not have been written, because they were for uncommitted transactions.” – “History list length 6 is number of unpurged transactions in undo space.
