Percona Server for MySQL 5.6.13-60.6¶
Percona is glad to announce the fourth Release Candidate release of Percona Server for MySQL 5.6.13-60.6 on September 20th, 2013 (Downloads are available here and from the Percona Software Repositories.
Based on MySQL 5.6.13, including all the bug fixes in it, Percona Server for MySQL 5.6.13-60.6 is the fourth RC release in the Percona Server for MySQL 5.6 series. All of Percona‘s software is open-source and free, all the details of the release can be found in the 5.6.13-60.6 milestone at Launchpad.
Improved Buffer Pool Scalability feature has been ported from Percona Server for MySQL 5.5. This feature splits the single global InnoDB buffer pool mutex into several mutexes. The goal of this change is to reduce mutex contention, which can be very impacting when the working set does not fit in memory.
Multiple Adaptive Hash Search Partitions feature has been ported from Percona Server for MySQL 5.5. This feature splits the adaptive hash index across several partitions and decreases the AHI latch contention. This feature fixes the upstream bug #62018 (#1216804).
Percona Server for MySQL now provides additional information in the slow query log when
log_slow_rate_limitvariable is enabled.
A new variable
slow_query_log_always_write_timehas been introduced. It can be used to specify an additional execution time threshold for the slow query log, that, when exceeded, will cause a query to be logged unconditionally, that is,
log_slow_rate_limitwill not apply to it.
The unnecessary overhead from persistent InnoDB adaptive hash index latching has been removed, potentially improving stability of the Multiple Adaptive Hash Search Partitions feature as well. Upstream bug fixed #70216, bug fixed #1218347.
Adaptive hash indexing partitioning code has been simplified, potentially improving performance. Bug fixed #1218321.
