Want a free copy of High Performance MySQL, Third Edition? If you register before the early-bird pricing expires for the MySQL Conference in April, and use the discount code PL-Book, you’ll get to take a free copy home from the conference!

VividCortex is the startup I founded in 2012. It’s the easiest way to monitor what your servers are doing in production. It does TCP network traffic analysis. VividCortex offers MySQL performance monitoring and PostgreSQL performance management among many other features.

And now, a status update: I’m currently proofing the QC2 (quality control #2) revision of the book; after this, the book goes to manufacturing. The PDF is now 820 pages, which is a lot of work to proofread. You can imagine how much more in-depth we’ve been able to go with so many more pages.

The free sample online is Chapter 8, on optimizing MySQL configuration. Liz van Dijk just tweeted this about it:

The sample chapter of High Perf MySQL 3rd Ed is both amazingly to the point and hilarious at times. Instant buy for me.

If you haven’t yet, I encourage you to take a look at the sample. Then go register for the conference to get your free copy, and I’ll see you in Santa Clara! We’re also arranging a book-signing at the conference, so you can get some scribbles on your copy if you want!
