ScaleArc: Real-world application testing with WordPress (benchmark test)
+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 me and ScaleArc co-founder and chief architect, Uday Sawant.

The goal of this benchmark was to identify ScaleArc’s overhead using a real-world application – the world’s most popular (according to wikipedia) content management system and blog engine: WordPress.

ScaleArc: Benchmarking with sysbench

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 …

When it’s faster to use SQL in MySQL NDB Cluster over memcache API
+3 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Memcache access for MySQL Cluster (or NDBCluster) provides faster access to the data because it avoids the SQL parsing overhead for simple lookups – which is a great feature. But what happens if I try to get multiple records via memcache API (multi-GET) and via SQL (SELECT with IN())? I’ve encountered this a few times now, so I decided to blog about it. I did a very simple benchmark with the following script:

#!/bin/bash
mysql_server="192.168.56.75"
mc_server="192.168.56.75"
mysql_cmd="mysql -h${mysql_server} --silent --silent"
mysql_schema="percona"
mysql_table="memcache_t"
mc_port=11211
mc_prefix="mt:"

As the application evolves, additional requirements will appear like hot backups, …
