LinkBenchX: benchmark based on arrival request rate
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

An idea for a benchmark based on the “arrival request” rate that I wrote about in a post headlined “Introducing new type of benchmark” back in 2012 was implemented in Sysbench. However, Sysbench provides only a simple workload, so to be able to compare InnoDB with TokuDB, and later MongoDB with Percona TokuMX, I wanted to use more complicated scenarios. (Both TokuDB and TokuMX are part of Percona’s product line, in the case you missed …

Measuring the impact of tcpdump on Very Busy Hosts
+1 Vote Up -0Vote Down

A few years back Deva wrote about how to use tcpdump on very busy hosts. That post sparked my interest about exploring how to measure the impact of tcpdump on very busy hosts. In this post, I wanted to highlight how much of an impact there really is and what options you have to make the query collection much more effective.

Some things you need to know:

  • The test is a sysbench read-only workload, 8 tables, 8 threads, 1000000 rows each with 16G of buffer pool. Dataset fully in memory.
  • sysbench …

MySQL benchmarks on eXFlash DIMMs
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

In this blog post, we will discuss MySQL performance on eXFlash DIMMs. Earlier we measured the IO performance of these storage devices with sysbench fileio.

Environment

The benchmarking environment was the same as the one we did sysbench fileio in.

CPU: 2x Intel Xeon E5-2690 (hyper threading enabled)
FusionIO driver version: 3.2.6 build 1212
Operating system: CentOS 6.5
Kernel version: 2.6.32-431.el6.x86_64

In this case, we used a separate machine for testing which had a 10G ethernet …

Looking deeper into InnoDB’s problem with many row versions
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

A few days ago I wrote about MySQL performance implications of InnoDB isolation modes and I touched briefly upon the bizarre performance regression I found with InnoDB handling a large amount of versions for a single row. Today I wanted to look a bit deeper into the problem, which I also filed as a bug.

First I validated in which conditions the problem happens. It seems to happen only in REPEATABLE-READ isolation mode and only …

FATAL: failed to initialize database driver! with Sysnbech 0.4.X

Recently, I came through with this error. It was weird because I have never seen this error earlier.

Monitoring MySQL flow control in Percona XtraDB Cluster 5.6
+2 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Monitoring flow control in a Galera cluster is very important. If you do not, you will not understand why writes may sometimes be stalled. Percona XtraDB Cluster 5.6 provides 2 status variables for such monitoring: wsrep_flow_control_paused and wsrep_flow_control_paused_ns. Which one should you use?

What is flow control?

Flow control does not exist with regular MySQL replication, but only with Galera replication. It is simply the mechanism nodes are using when they are not able to keep up with …

Lua sysbench – crash course
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

This is a follow-up on my previous blog post about using Lua enabled sysbench. Today I will dive into how to write Lua scripts for sysbench. Look at this simple example:

function prepare ()
  local i
  print("creating table sbtest.t1 ...")
  db_query("create table t1 (c1 int unsigned primary key, c2 int)")
  db_query("begin")
  for i= 1, 1000 do
    db_query("insert into t1 values (" .. i .. "," .. i .. ")")
  end
  db_query("commit")
end

function cleanup()
  db_query("drop table t1")
end

function help()
  print("sysbench Lua demo; no special command line options available")
end

function …

Using Lua-enabled sysbench
+2 Vote Up -0Vote Down

A quite common benchmark for MySQL is sysbench. It was written nearly 10 years ago by Alexey Kopytov.

Sysbench has modes to benchmark raw CPU performance, mutex speed, scheduler overhead and file IO performance. The probably most often used sysbench mode is OLTP. This benchmark mimics a OLTP scenario with small transactions hitting an optimized database. There are many variables to play with, most important is the number of simulated application threads (option --num-threads). The OLTP benchmark can be run read-only, then it does 14 SELECT queries per transaction. Or it can be run read-write …

ScaleArc: Benchmarking with sysbench
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

ScaleArc recently hired Percona to perform various tests on its database traffic management product. This post is the outcome of the benchmarks carried out by Uday Sawant (ScaleArc) and myself. You can also download the report directly as a PDF here.

The goal of these benchmarks is to identify the potential overhead of the ScaleArc software itself and the potential benefits of caching. The benchmarks were carried out with the trunk version of sysbench. For this reason, we used a very small set of data, so the measurements will be …

Virident vCache vs. FlashCache: Part 2
+1 Vote Up -0Vote Down

This is the second part in a two-part series comparing Virident’s vCache to FlashCache. The first part was focused on usability and feature comparison; in this post, we’ll look at some sysbench test results.

Disclosure: The research and testing conducted for this post were sponsored by Virident.

First, some background information. All tests were conducted on Percona’s Cisco UCS C250 test machine, and both the vCache and FlashCache tests used the same 2.2TB Virident FlashMAX II as the cache storage device. EXT4 is the …
