We conducted a survey of several hundreds software engineers who have experience in manage servers with installed MySQL
and asked them how do they improve performance of their servers and how long does this process take?
Here are some results:
- More than 60 percent of all engineers analyze MySQL Monitoring reports to detect performance degradation.
- More than 70 percent of all engineers optimize MySQL configuration routinely and manually to improve performance and reduce costs.
- MySQL configuration files optimization (per one server) takes from 30 minutes to several hours.
We made the infographic that summarizes results of this survey.
