This is the third segment of the MySQL Performance Optimization four-part article series. Before we begin, I urge you to go back and check out the earlier parts.

Within the first article, the most important benchmarking concepts and strategies were pointed out. The second segment presented benchmarking applications and other useful tools to apply what we have learned and test our own performance.

As promised, in this third article we're going to delve into optimizations and present most of the popular tips and hints regarding schema design and query optimizations. We need to grasp the concepts in order to be able to adapt them to your own needs (i.e.; database requirements).

Right after this part, the final part will cover really useful server tuning techniques and advice. Our purpose is to help you get the most out of your server.

Now that you already know what to expect from this segment, let's begin. Enjoy!
