XtraDB 5.7: Key Performance Algorithms
In this session we will discuss selected areas of InnoDB and XtraDB 5.7 internals that are mostly related to buffer pool management, from a performance and scalability point of view. We will describe the motivation behind the new features in Percona Server XtraDB 5.7, given that MySQL InnoDB 5.7 has reimplemented many similar features that we have in XtraDB 5.6 -- especially for disk-bound RW workloads. The talk will be technical, and assumes you have familiarity with InnoDB internals. The target audience for the talk is InnoDB and performance engineers.
Percona Server Lead, Percona
Laurynas joined Percona in 2011 as a member of the Percona Server, Percona XtraDB and Percona XtraBackup development group. Before coming to Percona, Laurynas was a PhD student at Aalborg University, in Denmark, where he did research on physical database indexes.
Performance Engineer, Percona
Alexey Stroganov is a Performance Engineer at Percona, where he works on improvements and features that makes Percona Server even more flexible, faster and scalable. Before joining Percona he worked on the performance testings/analysis of MySQL server and it components at MySQL AB/Sun/Oracle for more than ten years. During this time he was focused on performance evaluations, benchmarks, analysis, profiling, various optimizations and tunings.
