Understanding MySQL Internals
Discovering and Improving a Great Database
Although MySQL's source code is open in the sense of being publicly available, it's essentially closed to you if you don't understand it. This book provides a comprehensive tour of MySQL 5 that shows you how to figure out the inner-workings of this powerful database. You'll learn how data structures and convenience functions operate, how to add new storage engines and configuration options, and much more.
