TokuDB Fast Update Benchmark

 | March 28, 2013 |  Posted In: Tokutek, TokuView

Last month my colleague Rich Prohaska covered the technical details of our “Fast Update” feature which we added to TokuDB in version 6.6.  The message based architecture of Fractal Tree Indexes allows us to defer certain operations while still maintaining the semantics that MySQL users require. In the case of Fast Updates, TokuDB is avoiding the read-before-write […]

Sysbench Benchmark for MongoDB

 | March 14, 2013 |  Posted In: Tokutek, TokuView

As we continue to test our Fractal Tree Indexing with MongoDB, I’ve been updating my benchmark infrastructure so I can compare performance, correctness, and resource utilization.  Sysbench has long been a standard for testing MySQL performance, so I created a version that is compatible with MongoDB.  You can grab my current version of Sysbench for […]

Webinar: Best Practices for a Successful TokuDB Evaluation

 | November 27, 2012 |  Posted In: Tokutek, TokuView

In this webinar we will show step by step how to install, configure, and test TokuDB for a typical performance evaluation. We’ll also be flagging potential pitfalls that can ruin the eval results. It will describe the differences between installing from scratch and replacing an existing MySQL / MariaDB installation. It will also review the […]

532x Multikey Index Insertion Performance Increase for MongoDB with Fractal Tree Indexes

 | November 13, 2012 |  Posted In: Tokutek, TokuView

In my three previous MongoDB blogs I wrote about our implementation of Fractal Tree(R) indexes on MongoDB, showing a 10x insertion performance increase, a 268x query performance increase, and a comparison of covered indexes and clustered indexes. These benchmarks show the difference that rich and efficient indexing can make to your MongoDB workload. Given the […]

Small Data

 | November 12, 2012 |  Posted In: Tokutek, TokuView

There is obviously much being written these days about Big Data. While the term has many different meanings to many different folks, our MySQL and MariaDB customers tend to find their data to be uncomfortably big when the tables become too large for memory. In this case, more storage has to be acquired, performance starts […]

MySQL Schema Agility on SSDs

 | September 29, 2012 |  Posted In: Tokutek, TokuView

TokuDB v6.5 adds the ability to expand certain column types without downtime.  Users can now enlarge char, varchar, varbinary, and integer columns with no interruption to insert/update/delete statements on the altered table.  Prior to this feature, enlarging one of these column types required a full table rebuild.  InnoDB blocks all insert/update/delete operations to a table […]

MongoDB Index Shootout: Covered Indexes vs. Clustered Fractal Tree Indexes

 | September 6, 2012 |  Posted In: Tokutek, TokuView

In my two previous blogs I wrote about our implementation of Fractal Tree Indexes on MongoDB, showing a 10x insertion performance increase and a 268x query performance increase. MongoDB’s covered indexes can provide some performance benefits over a regular MongoDB index, as they reduce the amount of IO required to satisfy certain queries.  In essence, […]

268x Query Performance Increase for MongoDB with Fractal Tree Indexes, SAY WHAT?

 | August 30, 2012 |  Posted In: Tokutek, TokuView

Last week I wrote about our 10x insertion performance increase with MongoDB. We’ve continued our experimental integration of Fractal Tree® Indexes into MongoDB, adding support for clustered indexes.  A clustered index stores all non-index fields as the “value” portion of the index, as opposed to a standard MongoDB index that stores a pointer to the […]

10x Insertion Performance Increase for MongoDB with Fractal Tree Indexes

 | August 23, 2012 |  Posted In: Tokutek, TokuView

The challenge of handling massive data processing workloads has spawned many new innovations and techniques in the database world, from indexing innovations like our Fractal Tree® technology to a myriad of “NoSQL” solutions (here is our Chief Scientist’s perspective). Among the most popular and widely adopted NoSQL solutions is MongoDB and we became curious if […]
