Worrying about the ‘InnoDB: detected cycle in LRU for buffer pool (…)’ message?
+1 Vote Up -0Vote Down

If you use Percona Server 5.5 and you have configured it to use multiple buffer pool instances than sooner or later you’ll see the following lines on the server’s error log and chances are you’ll be worried about them:

InnoDB: detected cycle in LRU for buffer pool 5, skipping to next buffer pool.
InnoDB: detected cycle in LRU for buffer pool 3, skipping to next buffer pool.
InnoDB: detected cycle in LRU for buffer pool 7, skipping to next buffer pool.

Worry not as this is mostly harmless. It’s becoming a February tradition for me (Fernando) to face a question about this subject (ok, …

Performance Impact of InnoDB Transaction Isolation Modes in MySQL 5.7
Employee_Team +1 Vote Up -0Vote Down

During the process of reviewing our server defaults for MySQL 5.7, we thought that it might be better to change the default transaction isolation level from REPEATABLE-READ to READ-COMMITTED (the default for PostgreSQL, Oracle, and SQL Server). After some benchmarking, however, it seems that we should stick with REPEATABLE-READ as the default for now.

It’s very easy to …

Regarding MySQL 5.6 temporary tables format
+1 Vote Up -0Vote Down

default_tmp_storage_engine variable was introduced in 5.6.3, allowing the configuration of the default engine for temporary tables. This seems to be in the direction, as I commented before, of making MyISAM an optional engine. In 5.7, a separate tablespace is being created to hold those tables in order to reduce its performance penalty (those tables do not need to be redone if the server crashes, so extra writes are avoided).

However, …

Is MySQL’s innodb_file_per_table slowing you down?
+1 Vote Up -0Vote Down

MySQL’s innodb_file_per_table is a wonderful thing – most of the time. Having every table use its own .ibd file allows you to easily reclaim space when dropping or truncating tables. But in some use cases, it may cause significant performance issues.

Many of you in the audience are responsible for running automated tests on your codebase before deploying to production. If you are, then one of your goals is having tests run as quickly as possible so you can run them as frequently as possible. Often times you can change …

MySQL Dumping and Reloading the InnoDB Buffer Pool
Employee_Team +0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

MySQL’s default storage engine as of version 5.5 is InnoDB. InnoDB maintains a storage area called the buffer pool for caching data and indexes in memory. By keeping the frequently-accessed data in memory, related searches are retrieved much faster than reading from disk.

When you stop or restart MySQL, you lose the cached data stored in the buffer pool. There is a feature in MySQL 5.6 which allows you to dump the contents of the buffer pool before you …

Extent Descriptor Page of InnoDB
Employee_Team +3 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Within the MySQL data directory, the InnoDB storage engine creates two types of files — the data files and the redo log files. Each data file (or ibd file) belongs to exactly one tablespace. Each tablespace is given a unique identifier called the space_id. One tablespace can have 1 or more data files. If a tablespace has more than one data file, then the data files have a specific order or sequence. The data files can be thought of as being concatenated to each other in that specific order.

The data file is made up of a …

MySQL & NoSQL – Memcached Plugin
+2 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Send to Kindle

Many of you have already heard about NoSQL databases and one of the the most used tool is Memcached, where you add a cache layer between the application and database. Since MySQL version 5.6, a new plugin is available to do the integration between MySQL and Memcached. On this article, we will learn how to install it on linux, and some basic configurations of it.

Pre-requirements:
Install libevent

Installation:
To install memcached support we will need to create a few tables responsible for MySQL and memcached integration. MySQL already includes the file which creates those …

Using Percona Cloud Tools to solve real-world MySQL problems
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

For months when speaking with customers I have been positioning Percona Cloud Tools (PCT) as a valuable tool for the DBA/Developer/SysAdmin but only recently have I truly been able to harness the data and make a technical recommendation to a customer that I feel would have been very difficult to accomplish otherwise.

Let me provide some background: I was tasked with performing a Performance Audit for one of …

Looking deeper into InnoDB’s problem with many row versions
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

A few days ago I wrote about MySQL performance implications of InnoDB isolation modes and I touched briefly upon the bizarre performance regression I found with InnoDB handling a large amount of versions for a single row. Today I wanted to look a bit deeper into the problem, which I also filed as a bug.

First I validated in which conditions the problem happens. It seems to happen only in REPEATABLE-READ isolation mode and only …

MySQL performance implications of InnoDB isolation modes
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Over the past few months I’ve written a couple of posts about dangerous debt of InnoDB Transactional History and about the fact MVCC can be the cause of severe MySQL performance issues. In this post I will cover a related topic – InnoDB Transaction Isolation Modes, their relationship with MVCC (multi-version concurrency control) and how they impact MySQL performance.

The …
