I again work with the system which needs high insertion rate for data which generally fits in memory. Last time I worked with similar system it used MyISAM and the system was built using multiple tables. Using multiple key caches was the good solution at that time and we could get over 200K of inserts/sec.
This time I worked with Innodb tables... it was a different system with different table structure, not to mention different hardware so It can't be compared directly, still it is nice to see you can get the numbers as high with Innodb too.
I will spare you all experiments we went through and just share final numbers. On 8 core Opteron Box we were able to achieve 275K inserts/sec at which time we started to see load to get IO bound because of log writes and flushing dirty buffers. I'm confident you can get[Read more...]
