Mo’ Data, Mo’ Problems
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Welcome to blog #2 in a series about the benefits of the Fractal Tree. In this post, I’ll be explaining Big Data, why it poses such a problem and how Tokutek can help. Given the fact that I am a lifelong fan of both Hip-hop and Big Data, the title was a no-brainer and, given the artist, a bit of a pun.

 I am as tired as you of hearing the term “Big Data.” It’s so overused, that it ceases to have specific meaning anymore. You see, data hardly ever starts as “big” or a “problem.” Rather, it starts small and easily manageable, but gradually grows to some unimaginable size and becomes a beast in need of slaying, like …

Fractal Tree Greatness: The Nexus
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

In my recent travels, I’ve been speaking with database users at various meetups and trade shows worldwide. Very often, I got questions centering around the best use cases for our products, be it TokuDB, our MySQL storage engine, or, TokuMX, our distribution of MongoDB. Over 90% of the time, I responded Cloud, Big Data or both. You see, in the software industry we’re like kindergartners, we like things to fit into neat categories. If you know any software sales people, you’ll recognize this as a fitting analogy (at least in terms of energy and attention span), but I digress. This strategy helps allocate resources where they are most likely to make an impact, …

Should vegetarians open steakhouse restaurants?

"Should vegetarians open steakhouse restaurants?"

Though someone will probably give me several examples of why they should, I'll argue that they absolutely should not. How can someone who doesn't eat steak convince others to eat at their "steak-only" restaurant?

But this is something a "professional technology benchmarker" (PTB) struggles with on a regular basis. Hello, I'm Tim Callaghan, and I'm a PTB.
professional technology benchmarker, or PTB (noun) : One who compares two technologies as part of their job. One of these technologies is usually the product of the PTB's employer, the other is almost …

Can we improve the current state of benchmarketing?

I'm starting off 2015 with the following New Year's Resolution, to improve the state of benchmarking. About a month ago I noticed the following tweet:
Hey @tokutek, please look at this: http://stssoft.com/products/stsdb-4-0/benchmark …. Are the benchmarks rigged or correctly done? I'm curious to know!While I've never met Ian Campbell (@iamic) he certainly knew how to call me to action. I immediately checked out the …

Testing TokuDB’s Group Commit Algorithm Improvement
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

The MySQL 5.6 Release has introduced some changes to how two phase commit works and is managed.  In particular, the commit phase of transactions to the binary log is now serialized and this behavior is something we identified fairly immediately.  We implement a group commit algorithm that needed to be altered so that TokuDB’s group commit to its recovery log would function effectively.

As part of our effort to verify the new Binary Log Group Commit functionality introduced in TokuDB 7.5.4 for Percona Server, we wanted to demonstrate the substantial increase in throughput scaling but also show the bottleneck caused by the …

Scaling TokuDB Performance with Binlog Group Commit
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

TokuDB offers high throughput for write intensive applications, and the throughput scales with the number of concurrent clients.  However, when the binary log is turned on, TokuDB 7.5.2 throughput suffers.  The throughput scaling problem is caused by a poor interaction between the binary log group commit algorithm in MySQL 5.6 and the way TokuDB commits transactions.   TokuDB 7.5.4 for Percona Server 5.6 fixes this problem, and the result is roughly an order of magnitude increase in SysBench throughput for in memory workloads.

MySQL uses two phase commit protocol to synchronize the MySQL binary log with the …

MySQL compression: Compressed and Uncompressed data size
+1 Vote Up -0Vote Down

MySQL has information_schema.tables that contain information such as “data_length” or “avg_row_length.” Documentation on this table however is quite poor, making an assumption that those fields are self explanatory – they are not when it comes to tables that employ compression. And this is where inconsistency is born. Lets take a look at the same table containing some highly compressible data using different storage engines that support MySQL compression:

TokuDB Read Free Replication : Details and Use Cases
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

The biggest innovation in TokuDB v7.5 is Read Free Replication (RFR). I blogged a few days ago posting a benchmark showing how much additional throughput can be achieved on a replication slave, while at the same time lowering the read IO operations to almost zero. The official documentation on the feature is available …
