Percona 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 and flushing, from a performance and scalability point of view. We will describe the motivation behind the features in Percona Server XtraDB 5.7 (buffer pool mutex split; multi-threaded LRU flusher; parallel doublewrite), 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.
