PostgreSQL Portland Performance Practice Project (P5)

A series of presentations
by
Mark Wong

This series will consist of 5 to 6 presentations aimed at PostgreSQL  
database users who wish to learn more about tuning their systems for  
performance. Attendees will learn how to generate and interpret  
operating system (Linux) and database statistics, and the effects of  
some system tuning techniques. This involves studying the well known  
Online Transaction Processing (OLTP) benchmark called TPC-C ( www.tpc.org 
  ). TPC-C was developed by a committee, representing all major  
players in the database marketplace, to be representative of typical  
online enterprise databases. TPC-C consists of a precisely defined  
schema and 19 queries. We will review the schema and queries and  
demonstrate how each tuning technique affects their performance. We  
will use an open source package that the speaker has developed, called  
DBT-2, which many DBAs have found useful.

Mark Wong has an MS in Computer Science from OGI and several years of  
experience developing and executing various database systems  
benchmarks. Most relevant to this series are his years spent at the  
OSDL developing and using a fair-use derivative of the TPC-C benchmark  
to characterize system performance of open source software. He now  
works at HP StorageWorks on their NAS products.

2nd THURSDAY OF EACH MONTH, BEGINNING JANUARY 8, 7:00 PM
