Many InnoDB scalability problems seem fixed in InnoDB-plugin-1.0.3 and I expect InnoDB-plugin will run fine on 16-24 cores boxes for many workloads. And now it is time to look on systems with 32GB+ of RAM which are not rare nowadays. Working with real customer systems I have wish-list of features I would like to see soon:
As you see the list list is not about performance but mostly about operations tasks, but with current amount of data and memory on servers they become critical. I do not know what is InnoDB plans about it and would like to hear if this is will be implemented anytime soon or never. Anyway I was asked what are our current plans about XtraDB with recent InnoDB-pluging release, as performance improvements in plugin may make XtraDB out of game – so I consider list above as roadmap for XtraDB and hope some or all features are implemented this year.
Do you have any other features you miss in current InnoDB ?
