Introducing tpce-like workload for MySQL

We have been using tpcc-mysql benchmark for long time, and there many results published in our blog, but that's just single workload. That's why we are looking into different benchmarks, and one
of them is TPCE. Yasufumi made some efforts to make TPCE working with MySQL, and we are making it available for public consideration.

You can download it from our Lauchpad Percona-tools project, it's
bzr branch lp:~percona-dev/perconatools/tpcemysql

Using this package you should agree with TPC-E License Agreement,

  • You can't compare results with results published on and you can't pretend the …

Percona is hiring a consultant

We're hiring. We are looking for the following qualifications:

  1. Expert knowledge of MySQL. Not just "certified" -- years of production experience with it. You need to know server internals, for example. You need to be able to do anything from optimizing difficult queries to moving high-volume services between data centers without interruption.
  2. Expert knowledge of InnoDB. You should understand its inner workings well enough to answer questions about its internals from memory, such as "how does the insert buffer work?" or "how does MVCC work on secondary indexes?" You should also know why it has trouble on some workloads and how to solve that.
  3. Expert knowledge of Linux systems administration. You need to know how to solve issues with filesystems, hardware, and networking. You need to be able to use tools such as gdb, strace, tcpdump, etc to solve weird problems.
  4. Expert with Apache, memcached, and other …
