Awesome MySQL 5.7 improvements
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Recently, I’ve had reason to poke at MySQL performance on some pretty cool hardware. Comparing MySQL 5.6 to MySQL 5.7 is a pretty interesting thing to do when you have many CPU cores.

The improvements to creating read views in InnoDB is absolutely huge for small statements with large concurrency – MySQL 5.7 completely removes this as a bottleneck – as much as doubling maximum SQL queries per second, which is a pretty impressive improvement.

I haven’t poked at the similar improvements in Percona Server on this hardware setup – so I can only really guess as to the performance characteristics of it… If comparing to older MySQL versions, Percona Server 5.5 is likely to outperform MySQL 5.5 thanks to

    Innodb Multi-core Performance
    +0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

    There's been a lot of rumors floating around internally at Yahoo that it's best to turn off some of your CPU cores when using Innodb, especially if you have a machine with > 4 cores.  At this point there's no question in my mind that Innodb doesn't perform much better when you double your cores from 4 to 8, but I really wanted to know if 8 actually performed worse. 
    To test, I used a Dell 2950 with 6 drives and a simple mysqlslap test script.  There's basically no I/O going on here, just a small table in memory being queried a lot.  To be fair, I actually got this test from Venu.  I used maxcpu=4 in my grub.conf to limit the cpus (I also tested with tasksel and it seemed to have the same effect as maxcpu).
