Evaluating Performance Improvements in MariaDB 10.5.5

Performance Improvements in MariaDB 10.5.5

Recently, I published a series of posts on MySQL and MariaDB, where MariaDB 10.5.4 does not necessarily perform well in some scenarios:

How MySQL and MariaDB Perform on NVMe Storage
Checkpointing in MySQL and MariaDB
How MySQL 8.0.21 and MariaDB 10.5.4 Perform in IO-Bound Scenarios on SATA SSD and NVMe Storage

In comments left on How MySQL and MariaDB […]

How Many innodb_buffer_pool_instances Do You Need in MySQL 8?

Following up on my recent benchmark posts on MySQL and MariaDB, MySQL and MariaDB on Enterprise SSD Storage and How MySQL and MariaDB Perform on NVMe Storage, I wanted to dig a little deeper and understand how different MySQL parameters affect performance.
One of the obscure MySQL Parameters (in my opinion) is innodb_buffer_pool_instances. In particular, […]

MySQL 8.0.21 and MariaDB 10.5.4 Perform in IO-Bound Scenarios

Continuing with the same topic and evaluating new versions of MariaDB and MySQL on Enterprise SSD Storage and How MySQL and MariaDB Perform on NVMe Storage, this time let’s take a look at how MySQL 8.0.21 and MariaDB 10.5.4 perform in IO-bound scenarios on both SATA SSD and NVMe storage.
To emulate the IO-bound scenario, […]

MySQL and MariaDB on NVMe Storage  – The Great Equalizer
Continuing with the checkpointing topic I restarted a month ago with MongoDB, followed with PostgreSQL, and then with MySQL and MariaDB on Enterprise SSD Storage, this time let’s take a look at how MySQL and MariaDB perform on NVMe storage.
Benchmark
To evaluate MariaDB and MySQL, I […]
