Webinar recording is available here

ClickHouse is famously fast, but a small amount of extra work makes it much faster. Join us for the latest version of our popular talk on single-node ClickHouse performance. We start by examining the system log to see what ClickHouse queries are doing. Then we introduce standard tricks to increase speed: adding CPUs, reducing I/O with filters, restructuring joins, adding indexes, and using materialized views, plus many more. In each case we show how to measure the results of your work. There will as usual be time for questions as well at the end. Sign up now to polish your ClickHouse performance skills!

Webinar. Strength in Numbers: Introduction to ClickHouse Cluster Performance

April 29, 202
with Robert Hodges
ClickHouse clusters apply the power of dozens or even hundreds of nodes to vast datasets. In this webinar we'll show you how to use the basic tools of replication and sharding to create high performance ClickHouse clusters. We'll study the plumbing of inserts into sharded datasets and how to determine the correct number of shards for your desired writes. We'll similarly look at distributed queries and show how to scale read capacity to desired levels using replicas. Finally, we'll look at techniques for scaling up both shards and replicas to accommodate growth in your dataset.
