When it comes to the query tuning, EXPLAIN is one the most important tools in the DBA’s arsenal. Why is a given query slow, what does the execution plan look like, how will JOINs be processed, is the query using the correct indexes, or is it creating a temporary table?

You can now sign up for the webinar, which takes place at the end of this month on September 27th. We’ll look at the EXPLAIN command and see how it can help us answer these questions.

We will also look into how to use database indexes to speed up queries. More specifically, we’ll cover the different index types such as B-Tree, Fulltext and Hash, deepdive into B-Tree indexes, and discuss the indexes for MyISAM vs. InnoDB tables as well as some gotchas.
