Slides from ‘Capacity Planning for LAMP’ talk at MySQL Conf 2007

This was a fun talk. I saw a lot of nods in the audience when I mentioned things pertaining to social applications (unpredictable usage, etc.). A lot of folks ask questions about how we use ganglia at Flickr.

A PDF of my slides are here. If anyone can tell me how to get Keynote2 slides into an HTML format, I’d appreciate it.


  1. Very nice talk, with most of the issues I’m constantly confronted about capacity planing. I totally agree with you: you can’t predict the future without knowing the past and the present.

  2. Hmm it appears like your website ate my first comment (it was super long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I had written and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog. I as well am an aspiring blog blogger but I’m still new to everything. Do you have any tips and hints for rookie blog writers? I’d genuinely appreciate it.

  3. Thank you a lot for sharing this with all people you really realize what you
    are talking about! Bookmarked. Please additionally consult with my site =).
