MySQL 5.5.8 and Percona Server on Fast Flash card (Virident tachIOn)

This is to follow up on my previous post and show the results for MySQL 5.5.8 and Percona Server on the fastest hardware I have in our lab: a Cisco UCS C250 server with 384GB of RAM, powered by a Virident tachIOn 400GB SLC card. To see different I/O patterns, I used different innodb_buffer_pool_size settings: 13G, […]

PBXT in tpcc-like benchmark

Finally I was able to run PBXT 1.0.11 pre-GA in tpcc-like workload, apparently there was bug with did not allow me to get the result earlier, and I am happy to see that PBXT team managed it. For initial runs I took tpcc 100 warehouses ( about 10GB of data) which fully fits into memory […]

Introducing percona-patches for 5.1

Our patches for 5.0 have attracted significant interest.  You can read about SecondLife’s experience here, as well as what Flickr had to say on their blog.  The main improvements come in both performance gains and improvements to diagnostics (such as the improvements to the slow log output, and INDEX_STATISTICS).

Thank you Paul! What’s the “ideal” use case for the PBXT engine, and how does it compare in performance?  When would I […]

XtraDB in CPU-bound benchmark

Peter said me that previous results http://www.percona.com/blog/2008/12/18/xtradb-benchmarks-15x-gain/ are too marketing, and we should show other results also. Here is the run for CPU Bound,or it would be more correctly to say in-cache benchmark, because there is a lot of CPU remains idle. This run is exactly the same as Disk Bound but with innodb_buffer_pool_size=8G which […]

It’s 100% backwards-compatible with standard InnoDB, so you can use it as a drop-in replacement in your current environment.
