Percona Server: Key Performance Algorithms
We will discuss selected areas of Percona Server for MySQL 5.7 internals that are mostly related to InnoDB buffer pool management and flushing, from a performance and scalability point of view. We will describe the motivation behind the features in Percona Server for MySQL 5.7 (buffer pool mutex split; multi-threaded LRU flusher; parallel doublewrite), given that MySQL InnoDB 5.7 has re-implemented many similar features that we have in Percona Server for MySQL 5.6 -- especially for disk-bound RW workloads.
