Multi-instance memcached performance
Employee +0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

As promised, here are more results running memcached on Sun's X2270 (Nehalem-based server). In my previous post, I mentioned that we got 350K ops/sec running a single instance of memcached at which point the throughput was hampered by the scalability issues of memcached. So we ran two instances of memcached on the same server, each using 15GB of memory and tested both 1.2.5 and 1.3.2 versions. Here are the results :

The maximum throughput was 470K ops/sec using 4 threads in memcached 1.3.2. Performance of 1.2.5 was just very slightly lower. At this throughput, the network capacity of the single 10gbe card was reached as the benchmark does a lot of small packet transfers. See my

GF + MySQL + Nehalem = 2925.18 JOPS
Employee_Team +0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

We have published a new SPECjAppServer 2004 result: 2925.18 JOPS@Standard. Total list price for the configuration, software and hardware together, is $78,834.00, yielding $26.95 per $/JOPS (or, if you are brave enough to go without support, $13.29).

The setup includes GlassFish v2.1 and MySQL (http://mysql.com)

MySQL 5.4 Scaling on Nehalem with Sysbench
Employee +1 Vote Up -0Vote Down
As a final followup to my MySQL 5.4 Scalability on 64-way CMT Servers blog, I'm posting MySQL 5.4 Sysbench results on a Sun Fire X4270 platform using the Intel x86 Nehalem chip (2 sockets/8 cores/16 threads). All CPUs were turned on during the runs. The my.cnf was the same as described in the previous blog.

The Sysbench version used was 0.4.12, and the read-only runs were invoked with the following command:

sysbench --max-time=300 --max-requests=0 --test=oltp --oltp-dist-type=special --oltp-table-size=10000000 \
   --oltp-read-only=on --num-threads=[NO_THREADS] run

The "oltp-read-only=on" parameter was omitted for the read-write tests. The my.cnf file listed in my previous blog was also used unchanged for these tests.

Here are the results graphically running on Linux.

Memcached Performance on Sun's Nehalem System
Employee +0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Memcached is the de-facto distributed caching server used to scale many web2.0 sites today. With the requirement to support a very large number of users as sites grow, memcached aids scalability by effectively cutting down on MySQL traffic and improving response times.

Memcached is a very light-weight server but is known not to scale beyond 4-6 threads. Some scalability improvements have gone into the 1.3 release (still in beta). With the new Intel Nehalem based systems improved hyper-threading providing twice as much performance as current systems, we were curious to see how memcached would perform on these systems. So we ran some tests, the results of which are shown below :

Scaling Olio on Sun's Nehalem Systems and Amber Road
Employee +0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

I introduced Olio a little while ago as a toolkit to help web developers and deployers as well as performance/operations engineers. Olio includes a web2.0 application as well as the necessary software required to drive load against it. Today, we are showcasing the first major deployment of Olio on Sun's newest Intel Nehalem based systems - the SunFire X2270 and the SunFire X4270. We tested 10,000 concurrent users (with a database of 1 million users) using over 1TB of storage in the unstructured object store.

The diagram below shows the configuration we tested.

MySQL Scalability on Nehalem systems (Sun Fire X4270)

Today Sun announced multiple servers based on Intel's Nehalem Processor. I had early access to a Sun Fire X4270 server (2 socket) for a couple of weeks. I used this opportunity to test some of latest MySQL performance and scalability enhancements. For someone unfamiliar with this system, this is a 2 socket 2U server with support for a max of 144GB of memory. With hyperthreading turned on, the operating system sees 16 CPUs.

Before I share the results of my findings, lets get clear on the terminology. Socket refers to physical sockets on the motherboard. CPU refers to the number of processors seen by the operating system. Core refers to the physical processing unit. A Nehalem socket has 4 cores. Thread refers to the hyperthreading threads. One Nehalem core has 2 threads. Using

HP Joins Solaris Community (Live Free or Die)
Employee +0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

In 1809, a hero in America's Revolutionary War, General John Stark, was forced to decline an invitation to a military reunion due to ill health. He sent a toast to be read in his absence that began, "Live Free or Die." That phrase is now the official motto of the American state of New Hampshire (where Stark lived), known for a fierce sense of independence (and no income taxes).

Hold that thought for a moment.

Today, we're announcing the single biggest and most important OEM/distribution agreement Sun's ever signed for the open source Solaris operating system - through
