Topic: "Drupal just wants to hug your database"

Description: "Drupal is one of the more widely adopted CMSs. It is open source and has a huge developer base. However, I rarely hear a DBA mention having to administer Drupal with anything but frustration and pessimism. At Acquia, we have thousands of Amazon instances running Drupal databases. Most sites are quite different from each other, but some basic principles apply to all. Being the DBA for Drupal does not have to be a negative experience! In addition to covering the generic Drupal MySQL configuration tips, I will cover optimization methods for specific features like semaphores, sessions, Views, and the various Drupal caching layers. I’ll also cover the use of query cache in the Drupal context, which while normally frowned upon in the MySQL community, is often beneficial in maintaining a healthy Drupal site. "

There will be pizza, so please register at meetup so that we can order the proper amount. http://www.meetup.com/Portland-MySQL-User-Group-PDX-MUG/events/224733639/

Due to various scheduling conflicts, the August month's meeting has been delayed and wrapped into an early September one.
