MariaDB Database Administration Course Overview

This MariaDB Database Administration course is designed for MariaDB Database Administrators who have a basic understanding of a MariaDB database and a good working knowledge of SQL commands.

The course provides an understanding of MariaDB Architecture and practical experience in setting up, configuring and maintaining a MySQL server, backing up and recovering data and optimising query performance.

This MariaDB Database Administration course also covers MySQL replication and its role in high availability and scalability.

The delegate will learn and acquire skills as follows:

  • Using Client Programs for MariaDB DBA work
  • Using MySQL Workbench
  • Obtaining metadata
  • Configuring the Server
  • Install and configure the MariaDB Server and client programs
  • Administering and tuning a server
  • Upgrading a Running Server
  • Setting up Character Set Support
  • Configuring log files and using them to monitor database activity
  • Interpreting error messages
  • Locking and transactions
  • Using different storage engines
  • Table Maintenance
  • Implementing a backup strategy
  • Performing physical and logical backups of data
  • Administering Users and Privileges
  • Securing the Server from common security threats
  • Identify and Optimise poorly tuned queries
  • Tuning Tables and Indexes
  • Using the Event Scheduler
  • Creating Partitioned Tables
  • Replication
  • Configure simple and complex replication topologies
  • Administer a replication topology

Who will the Course Benefit?

Database Administrators, Database Developers and Technical Consultants who need to setup, administer, monitor and support MariaDB databases and servers.

Course Objectives

At the end of the MariaDB Database Administration course, delegates will have the knowledge to use all the features available to administer, monitor and support MariaDB 10.1 and 10.2 databases and servers.

Requirements

A working knowledge of MariaDB is required. Delegates should have knowledge of relational database concepts; have knowledge of MySQL data types; be able run Queries using SQL; join tables and run basic DDL and DML statements. This can be gained by attendance on the Introduction to MariaDBcourse.

This course is run on a Linux operating system, a basic knowledge of UNIX/Linux is recommended but is not essential.

Note:

Delegates who are also considering attending the 3 Day FastTrack to MariaDB Database Administration should note that fewer topics are covered on this course and it is delivered at a much faster pace due to the delegates already having substantial experience of administering other databases.
