Identify, analyze, and improve poorly performing queries that damage user experience and lead to lost revenue for your business. This book will help you make query tuning an integral part of your daily routine through a multi-step process that includes monitoring of execution times, identifying candidate queries for optimization, analyzing their current performance, and improving them to deliver results faster and with less overhead. Author Jesper Krogh systematically discusses each of these steps along with the data sources and the tools used to perform them. MySQL 8 Query Performance Tuning aims to help you improve query performance using a wide range of strategies. You will know how to analyze queries using both the traditional EXPLAIN command as well as the new EXPLAIN ANALYZE tool. You also will see how to use the Visual Explain feature to provide a visually-oriented view of an execution plan. Coverage of indexes includes indexing strategies and index statistics, and you will learn how histograms can be used to provide input on skewed data distributions that the optimizer can use to improve query performance. You will learn about locks, and how to investigate locking issues. And you will come away with an understanding of how the MySQL optimizer works, including the new hash join algorithm, and how to change the optimizer's behavior when needed to deliver faster execution times. You will gain the tools and skills needed to delight application users and to squeeze the most value from corporate computing resources. What You Will Learn Monitor query performance to identify poor performers Choose queries to optimize that will provide the greatest gain Analyze queries using tools such as EXPLAIN ANALYZE and Visual Explain Improve slow queries through a wide range of strategies Properly deploy indexes and histograms to aid in creating fast execution plans Understand and analyze locks to resolve contention and increase throughput Who This Book Is For Database administrators and SQL developers who are familiar with MySQL and need to participate in query tuning. While some experience with MySQL is required, no prior knowledge of query performance tuning is needed.

Learn the new Document Store feature of MySQL 8 and build applications around a mix of the best features from SQL and NoSQL database paradigms. Don't allow yourself to be forced into one paradigm or the other, but combine both approaches by using the Document Store. MySQL 8 was designed from the beginning to bridge the gap between NoSQL and SQL. Oracle recognizes that many solutions need the capabilities of both. More specifically, developers need to store objects as loose collections of schema-less documents, but those same developers also need the ability to run structured queries on their data. With MySQL 8, you can do both! Introducing the MySQL 8 Document Store presents new tools and features that make creating a hybrid database solution far easier than ever before. This book covers the vitally important MySQL Document Store, the new X Protocol for developing applications, and a new client shell called the MySQL Shell. Also covered are supporting technologies and concepts such as JSON, schema-less documents, and more. The book gives insight into how features work and how to apply them to get the most out of your MySQL experience. The book covers topics such as: The headline feature in MySQL 8 MySQL's answer to NoSQL New APIs and client protocols What You'll Learn Create NoSQL-style applications by using the Document Store Mix the NoSQL and SQL approaches by using each to its best advantage in a hybrid solution Work with the new X Protocol for application connectivity in MySQL 8 Master the new X Developer Application Programming Interfaces Combine SQL and JSON in the same database and application Migrate existing applications to MySQL Document Store Who This Book Is For Developers and database professionals wanting to learn about the most profound paradigm-changing features of the MySQL 8 Document Store
