dbbenchmark.com – MySQL (basic) connection pool support added
+1 Vote Up -0Vote Down

In this latest release I’ve added a basic MySQL connection pool to the benchmarking script which improves the method in which connections to MySQL are handled and reused. In addition, there have been some optimizations made to the thread handler functions for better debug reporting. Download the latest release now and see how your MySQL server performs against the rest of the community! Download here: download page.

dbbenchmark.com – automated installer now available
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

As previously mentioned, Darren Cassar has been working on a new automated installer for the DBbenchmark program. It’s now available for download: click here. All you need to do is save it to the directory that you want to install to and then make sure it’s executable: “chmod 700 installer.sh”, then run it “./installer.sh”.

dbbenchmark.com – vote on next supported OS now!
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

So far the benchmarking script supports Linux, FreeBSD, and OSX. I’m installing virtual machines today to get ready for development on the next OS that the community wants to have supported. Vote today for your choice. Development will begin Friday 2010-09-03.

dbbenchmark.com – MySQL benchmarking now with FreeBSD support
+1 Vote Up -2Vote Down

The development cycle is moving right along for the community’s newest MySQL benchmarking script. I’m pleased to announce that we now officially support FreeBSD (version 8.1 tested) so go ahead and download now and test your FreeBSD, Linux, or OSX MySQL server! Click here for the download.

Courtesy of Darren Cassar and some generous coding this weekend, we’re going to be releasing a auto-installer / updater for the application which you can use to automate that part of the process. Stay tuned for information on that release.

dbbenchmark.com – MySQL benchmarking now supports multiple threads!
+1 Vote Up -3Vote Down

We had a very successful weekend of Planet.mysql users submitting their database statistics so I’ve pushed some code into a new release today so that everyone can benefit from some new features. The biggest change is to the threading logic. Previously the benchmarking script was serializing MySQL operations and only making use of a secondary thread (not the invoking thread) to query the database. Now you have the option of running with “–threads=x” to make use of your multi-core server. A good example of this improvement was on my Macbook Pro; before the threading change it was inserting ~700/sec, after the code change I tried –threads=4 and saw an improvement to ~900/sec. Rather significant.

Download the new script now and see how your server compares to the ones in the central database!

dbbenchmark.com – now supporting MySQL on OSX 10.6
+2 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Just a quick note to let everyone know that our new benchmarking script now supports OSX 10.6 on Intel hardware. That means you can run one simple command and get all of the sequential and random INSERT and SELECT performance statistics about your database performance. As usual the script is open source and released under the new BSD license. Give is a try by downloading now! See the download page for more details.

SSD Market Continues to Heat Up

I had originally posted this on the 16th of September, but I had been changing hosting providers and such and it has managed to drop through the cracks.  So, if you didn’t see it before here it is..

I have long held the opinon that SSD (Solid State Disk) drives are going to be a major part of the database future. I just checked and I wrote a blog posting about them two years ago. I am not alone in this opinion.  It has long been realized that both I/O access speed and throughput increases have not kept pace with the increases in CPU power and the steadily decreasing cost of RAM. Storage space has increased, but both access speed and throughput performance have only had marginal increases in performance.

Solid state disks have long held the promise of lowered access speeds, especially when it comes to random access.  Even so, prices for SSD drives

I am publishing my MySQL related bookmark collection http://www.mysqlpreacher.com/bookmarks/.

Feel free to send me links you think might be good to add in order to help others.

Remember, SHARING IS CARING!!! …. we get so much for free, why shouldn’t we give some back?

Seeking public data for benchmarks
+3 Vote Up -0Vote Down

I have several side projects when time permits and one is that of benchmarking various MySQL technologies (e.g. MySQL 5.0,5.1,5.4), variants (e.g. MariaDB, Drizzle) and storage engines (e.g. Tokutek, Innodb plugin) and even other products like Tokyo Cabinet which is gaining large implementations.

You have two options with benchmarks, the brute force approach such as Sysbench, TPC, sysbench, Juice Benchmark, iibench, mysqlslap, skyload. I prefer the realistic approach however these are always on client’s private data. What is first needed is better access to public data for benchmarks. I have compiled this list to date and I am seeking additional sources for reference.
