In a few weeks I’m presenting “Performance Benchmarking: Tips, Tricks, and Lessons Learned” at Percona Live London 2014 (November 3-4). I continue to learn lessons and improve my benchmarking capabilities, so the content is a full upgrade from my presentation at Percona Live Santa Clara in April 2013. Anyone interested in achieving and sustaining the best performance out of their software/hardware/application should attend.

Also, Tokutek is sponsoring so we’ll be available in the expo hall throughout the

Hello all,

I hope you're doing well. After the successful event last year it's a no brainer to arrange another community dinner when we're all together again in London this November. We had a fantastic turn-out for the meal last year, seating over 100 MySQLers in a venue whom were expecting only 60. So this year join the MySQL community again for a bite to eat and a beverage or two and discuss life, love and data.

How to improve InnoDB performance by 55% for write-bound loads
+2 Vote Up -0Vote Down

During April’s Percona Live MySQL Conference and Expo 2014, I attended a talk on MySQL 5.7 performance an scalability given by Dimitri Kravtchuk, the Oracle MySQL benchmark specialist. He mentioned at some point that the InnoDB double write buffer was a real performance killer. For the ones that don’t know what the innodb double write buffer is, it is a disk buffer were pages are written before being written to the actual data file. Upon restart, pages in the double write buffer are rewritten to their data files if complete. This is to avoid data file corruption with half written pages. I knew it has an impact on performance, on ZFS since it is transactional I always disable it, but I never realized how important the performance

Percona Live 2014 behind; MySQL ahead
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

I started using MySQL 11 years ago.  That’s not too long compared to other people in the industry, but nonetheless here’s my perspective on the state of the MySQL industry after attending Percona Live MySQL Conference & Expo 2104.

In short, the attitude around MySQL has changed from “Does it work?” to “Is it fast and reliable?” to “How do we manage it?” To further generalize, these periods correspond roughly to the original MySQL AB team, Percona and Oracle, and the last period is the current period so key players are emerging, like WebScaleSQL.

Does it work?

Percona Live 2014 Impressions
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Three weeks ago I had the privilege of attending my first Percona Live MySQL conference, which was incredible! In particular, there were two things that I found impressive about the conference.

First, was the amount of knowledge sharing and support that MySQL users provide each other; it truly is a community. Coming from EMC, I’ve attended several conferences in the past, but I’ve always considered them more of a marketing focused event, mostly spent doing product launches and company roadmaps and not much time fostering knowledge sharing and informal get-togethers: Percona Live was different. There were well thought out tutorials, information packed presentations, and keynotes rife with practical knowledge culled from the real world. I had many great conversations at our booth with people that have evaluated TokuDB or TokuMX or were planning to as soon as they got back into

The MySQL community continues to amaze me, everyone is friendly and always willing to answer questions and help others. It’s always nice to meet people in-person that I’ve met virtually in the last 12 months. Percona Live 2014 MySQL Conference and Expo in Santa Clara just wrapped up and I wanted to share my highlights of the event before I unplug for the weekend.
