Software Configuration Audit

Properly configured system is a foundation for any well performing database. Even a small mistake or omission may result in a considerable degradation of MySQL performance, unstable behaviour or even lead to downtime. During this stage of an audit, we carefully examine the way the operating system has been set up – from the most basic parameters to the choice of a filesystem or even network configuration – anything that may directly impact MySQL performance or availability.

What will be examined?

  • Storage and disk I/O settings
  • Network configuration
  • Swap space configuration
  • Partition alignment
  • Filesystem options
  • Time synchronization
