Hi
previously i asked a question regarding having some issues with connections and have got some fairly reasonable answers

Yesterday i have seen these links regarding 'php' website connected to MySQL and optimising it so as to get better performance...the links for reference are
http://www-css.fnal.gov/dsg/external/freeware/mysqlTuning.html
http://www.getafreelancer.com/projects/sumitp83_302783.html

My application is a Java application and use the MySql and i wish if someone can help regarding similar topics like fine tuning MySQL to work perfectly(or somewhat better) using Java,Tomcat.
you can advice me on persistency,pooling,connection problems,stability,robustness ,faster processing tips etc...

Please provide some solid answers and as some the answers are too vague to actual implement and still requires me to do the homework.thanks

      Hi!

I suggest you take a look at the Optimization part of the Manual
http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.0/en/optimization.html

there you can find all the necessary information to tune your MySQL db to your app.

Also what you can do is do an EXPLAIN on your queries ( http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.0/en/explain.html )
or the log ( http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.0/en/mysql-explain-log.html ).
If you find in the results that queries are doing TABLESCAN then you should add an index on the
matching columns in the query's where clause to change it into INDEXSCAN for optimal performance on the table.

How to tune a database depends on how the application works i.e connects to
and manipulate the data in the db.
You have to look into the queries and see how they access the data and
configure the bufferpools, create neccesary indexes etc.
Ask your self:
How are the tables organized?
How are the relationship between the tables ?
Do you use MYISAM or InnoDB ?
Do you have massive inserts (batch), updates or deletes ?
Tuning the database to maximize the performance depends on how you
answer those questions as well as other questions related to disk and locking issues.
