Q: Does MySQL support ACID? A: Yes
+2 Vote Up -0Vote Down

I was recently asked this question by an experienced academic at the NY Oracle Users Group event I presented at.

Does MySQL support ACID? (ACID is a set of properties essential for a relational database to perform transactions, i.e. a discrete unit of work.)

Yes, MySQL fully supports ACID, that is Atomicity, Consistency, Isolation and Duration. (*)

This is contrary …

Recently I received a question from a user about one of my earlier blog posts. Since it wasn’t sent as a comment, I will answer it here. The question:

Fun with Bugs #43 - Bugs Fixed in MySQL 5.7.13
+1 Vote Up -0Vote Down

For some reason I do not see numerous public announcements about recent MySQL 5.7.13 release, even though it happened a couple of days ago formally. Maybe that's because we do not have any really "big" new features in this release (new ->> operator for introduced though for those who, unlike me, care about JSON). Still there are many fixes for bugs previously reported by Community (or Oracle engineers, but still in …

Percona Server 5.7: multi-threaded LRU flushing
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

In this blog post, we’ll discuss how to use multi-threaded LRU flushing to prevent bottlenecks in MySQL.

In the previous post, we saw that InnoDB 5.7 performs a lot of single-page LRU flushes, which in turn are serialized by the shared doublewrite buffer. Based on our 5.6 experience we have decided to attack the single-page flush issue first.

Let’s start with describing a single-page flush. If the working set of a database instance is bigger than the available buffer pool, existing data pages will have to be evicted or flushed (and then evicted) to make …

Fun with Bugs #42 - Bugs Fixed in MySQL 5.7.12
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

MySQL 5.7.12 was released more than 2 weeks ago. New features introduced there in a form of "rapid plugins" are widely discussed, but I am more interested in bugs reported by MySQL Community users that are fixed there. Unfortunately I do not see MySQL Community Release Notes by Morgan (like this) for quite a some time, so I have to continue describing key bug fixes and name people who reported and verified bugs in my "Fun with Bugs" series.

Employee_Team +2 Vote Up -0Vote Down

InnoDB in MySQL 5.7 introduced for the first time the ability to create a general tablespace and assign multiple tables to it.  These tablespaces can be assigned anywhere on the system.  They can even be assigned a smaller block size so that they can contain compressed tables that use that size as their key_block_size.…

TokuDB impacts InnoDB Performance?
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

This blog discusses how TokuDB impacts InnoDB performance when the two run in the same environment.

You would think MySQL storage engines are fairly independent of each other, even in the same environment. Enabling one, or changing its configuration, logically should have no impact on the performance of other engines (such as InnoDB) when they are accessing tables. The reality, however, is more complicated than that!    

Now that we’ve shipped …
