Slow database in your PHP stack? Don't blame the DBA! - PHPConf.Asia 2016

Published on: Sunday, 28 August 2016

Speaker: Harald Zeitlhofer (@HZeitlhofer)

Your users complain about the bad performance of your app or website? Developers blame the database? How can we find the cause for the performance hotspot?

Far too often the database is held responsible for performance or scalability problems. It seems to be main contributor to the overall web request response time. However, in many cases it’s not the database itself, but the way, how the application is using the database! Too many database statements, inefficient queries and poor index selection are among the common problem patterns.

Based on real life examples, you will learn how to approach performance problems, how to figure out if the database is really to blame and how to end the finger pointing between developers and DBAs.
