Many operations folk know the many Linux filesystems like EXT4 or XFS, they know of the schedulers available, they see the OOM killer coming and more. However, appropriate configuration is necessary when you're running your databases at scale.

Learn best practices for Linux performance tuning for MySQL, PostgreSQL, MongoDB, Cassandra and HBase. Topics that will be covered include: filesystems, swap and memory management, I/O scheduler settings, using the tools available (like iostat/vmstat/etc), practical kernel configuration, profiling your database, and using RAID and LVM.

There is a focus on bare metal as well as configuring your cloud instances such as Amazon EC2 and other cloud platforms.
