MySQL performance tuning

MySQL tuning is often the fastest way to accelerate the performance. While most monitoring tools look at server health only, a true performance analysis tool focuses on response time. DPA’s multi-dimensional database performance analysis correlates database activity, wait times, SQL statements, application requests, and other dimensions to help pinpoint the exact cause of database slowdowns. It presents the results in easy-to-understand bar charts with alarms that lead to more detailed data surrounding an issue. Tuning advisors point to problems that need immediate attention, and provide clear, actionable tuning advice.
