PHP/MySQL Database Optimization

Budget $100 - $500 USD
Bids 8
Average Bid $278

We need a MySQL optimization specialist to help to improve the performance of an existing web statistics script that uses MySQL and PHP.

This project requires a deep knowledge of MySQL and PHP - we are not looking for someone to recommend just adding more indexes!

This is more a consultative role than a development role - we have our developers ready to implement any suggested changes, but do not have the required knowledge of MySQL optimization in house.

## Deliverables

1. Benchmarks/tests to judge script and database performance and bottlenecks

2. Complete list of suggested improvements to the script or database format detailing:
? ? ? A) What the change is
? ? ? ? B) Any specific syntax/commands (if required)
? ? ? C) What? this aims to improve
? ? ? D) How this will improve the specific area/bottleneck

While the? above deliverables are the only deliverables,? we are looking for someone who will work through these issues with us, and be available (at an negotiated rate) to assist us with the implementation of these suggestions.

Before bidding on this project, please be aware that any suggestions or code provided may be used as part of a commercial product.

We will also provide you with a copy of the product (and full source code) in confidence, which must be destroyed after the completion of the project.
