MySQL 5.7: Performance & Scalability Benchmarks

New Features
3 April 1:00PM - 1:50PM @ Ballroom C

Experience level: 
50 minutes conference
This session will be interesting for any person who cares about making MySQL fly! Any published MySQL Benchmark results always involving a lot of discussions around, and a lot of misunderstanding too.. Some benchmark workloads are helping to understand and fix MySQL Performance issues. Some, even running MySQL, not testing it at all ;-) So, the goal of this talk is to clarify all these points, including: - common test workloads - problematic workloads - MySQL 5.7 improvements & resolved issues - "best" practices, tuning and workarounds for unresolved problems - MySQL 5.7 / 5.6 -vs- MariaDB -vs- Percona Server benchmark results Of course, the topic is pretty wide for a one hour talk, but most of the critical points will be covered (main MySQL/InnoDB contentions, InnoDB flushing, Thread Pool, Performance Schema, etc.)
