Hardware Configuration Audit

The first step towards understating the health of a MySQL database instance is identifying the hardware configuration of a server. Doing so is essential to be able to relate any information gathered in the subsequent stages of the MySQL performance audit to the capacity or physical limits of the hardware. Additionally, we can verify if the configuration meets the requirements of our client.
