We regularly benchmark Percona TokuMX to help identify performance bottlenecks and validate the results of changes to software.

TokuMX vs InnoDB in LinkBench

July 2015 Vadim Tkachenko benchmarked TokuMX using a modified LinkBench in a heavy IO-load, he compared InnoDB without compression, InnoDB with 8k compression, TokuDB with quicklz compression. Uncompressed datasize was 115GiB, and cachesize was 12GiB for InnoDB and 8GiB + 4GiB OS cache for TokuDB.

Key Results:

  • TokuDB outperforms InnoDB almost two times

Results on Crucial M500 (throughput, more is better)
