MongoDB benchmark: sysbench-mongodb IO-bound workload comparison

In this post I’ll share the results of a sysbench-mongodb benchmark I performed on my server. I compared MMAP, WiredTiger, RocksDB and TokuMXse (based on MongoDB 3.0) and TokuMX (based on MongoDB 2.4) in an IO-intensive workload. The full results are available here, and below I’ll just share the summary chart: I would like to […]

The MySQL ARCHIVE storage engine – Alternatives

In my previous post I pointed out that the existing ARCHIVE storage engine in MySQL may not be the one that will satisfy your needs when it comes to effectively storing large and/or old data. But are there any good alternatives? As the primary purpose of this engine is to store rarely accessed data in disk […]

InnoDB Full-text Search in MySQL 5.6 (part 1)

I’ve never been a very big fan of MyISAM; I would argue that in most situations, any possible advantages to using MyISAM are far outweighed by the potential disadvantages and the strengths of InnoDB. However, up until MySQL 5.6, MyISAM was the only storage engine with support for full-text search (FTS). And I’ve encountered many […]

MySQL Replication vs DRBD Battles

Well these days we see a lot of post for and against (more, more) using of MySQL and DRBD as a high availability practice. I personally think DRBD has its place but there are far more cases when other techniques would work much better for variety of reasons. First let me start with Florian’s comments […]

Efficient Boolean value storage for Innodb Tables

Sometimes you have the task of storing multiple of boolean values (yes/now or something similar) in the table and if you get many columns and many rows you may want to store them as efficient way as possible. For MyISAM tables you could use BIT(1) fields which get combined together for efficient storage:

MySQL Storage Engines – PBXT

I promised to write little articles about all storage engines which sessions I attended during MySQL Users Conference but I did not get too far yet, too busy. So today it is time for PBXT. I was very interested about session about PBXT because this is storage engine does not target the same general purpose […]

Countless storage engines

Today everybody writes about MySQL Conference & Expo and I am not an exclusion. I am under impression of count of storage engines were presented. In good old time when Oracle bought InnoDB, MySQL did one step – announced MySQL supports Plugginable Storage Architecture. In that time nobody was able to predict what is the […]
