MySQL Performance Audit

Baron Schwartz of Percona wrote up an interesting post on how they go about doing a MySQL performance audit. There is a lot of MySQL goodness in there as well as good information on how to gather performance metrics from a Linux installation.

One of the funny things I read there was finding 32-bit operating systems installed on 64-bit machines, which is exactly the case with a server I am currently working on. Not that it matters too much since the server only has 2GB of RAM.

On the other hand I have come across people running 32-bit apps on 64-bit operating systems, which seems to me a little like trying to run a race with one hand and one foot tied together.
