Luxbet, MariaDB and Melbourne Cup
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Yesterday was Melbourne Cup day in Australia – the biggest annual horse race event in the country, and in the state of Victoria it’s even a public holiday.

Open Query does work for Luxbet (part of Tabcorp), and Melbourne Cup day is by far their biggest day of the year in terms of traffic. It’s not just a big spike, there’s orders of magnitude difference so you can really say that the rest of the year is downright quiet (in relative terms). So, a very interesting load pattern.

Since last year Luxbet has upgraded from stock MySQL to MariaDB, and with our input made some other infrastructure modifications including moving to a pure solid state storage (FusionIO) solution as a SAN just won’t deliver the resilience and performance required. This

Effect from innodb log block size 4096 bytes
+2 Vote Up -2Vote Down

In my post MySQL 5.5.8 and Percona Server: being adaptive I mentioned that I used innodb-log-block-size=4096 in Percona Server to get better throughput, but later Dimitri in his article MySQL Performance: Analyzing Percona's TPCC-like Workload on MySQL 5.5 sounded doubt that it really makes sense. Here us quote from his article:

"Question: what is a potential impact on buffered 7MB/sec writes if we'll use 4K or 512 bytes block size to write to the buffer?.. )
There will be near no or no impact at all

MySQL 5.5.8 – in search of stability
+2 Vote Up -2Vote Down

A couple of days ago, Dimitri published a blog post, Analyzing Percona's TPCC-like Workload on MySQL 5.5, which was  a response to my post, MySQL 5.5.8 and Percona Server: being adaptive. I will refer to Dimitri's article as article [1]. As always, Dimitri has provided a very detailed and thoughtful article, and I strongly recommend reading if you want to understand how InnoDB works. In his post, Dimitri questioned some of my conclusions, so I decided to take a more detailed look at my findings. Let me show you my results.

Article [1] recommends using the innodb_max_dirty_pages_pct and

Virident tachIOn: New player on Flash PCI-E cards market
+4 Vote Up -0Vote Down

(Note: The review was done as part of our consulting practice, but is totally independent and fully reflects our opinion)

In my talk on MySQL Conference and Expo 2010 "An Overview of Flash Storage for Databases" I mentioned that most likely there are other players coming soon. I actually was not aware about any real names at that time, it was just a guess, as PCI-E market is really attractive so FusionIO can't stay alone for long time. So I am not surprised to see new card provided by Virident and I was lucky enough to test a pre-production sample Virident tachIOn 400GB SLC card.

I think it will be fair to say that Virident targets where right now FusionIO has a monopoly, and it will

FlashCache: tpcc workload with FusionIO card as cache
+3 Vote Up -0Vote Down

This run is very similar what I had on Intel SSD X25-M card, but now I use FusionIO 80GB SLC card. I chose this card as smallest available card (and therefore cheapest. On Dell.com you can see it for about $3K). There is also FusionIO IO-Xtreme 80GB card, which is however MLC based and it could be not best choice for FlashCache usage ( as there high write rate on FlashCache for both reading and writing to/from disks, so lifetime could be short).

Also Facebook team released WriteThrough module for FlashCache, which could be good trade-off if you want extra warranty for data consistency and your

MySQL 5.5.4 in tpcc-like workload
+4 Vote Up -0Vote Down

MySQL-5.5.4 ® is the great release with performance improvements, let's see how it performs in
tpcc-like workload.

The full details are on Wiki page
http://www.percona.com/docs/wiki/benchmark:mysql:554-tpcc:start

I took MySQL-5.5.4 with InnoDB-1.1, tpcc-mysql benchmark with 200W ( about 18GB worth of data),
InnoDB log files are 3.8GB size, and run with different buffer pools from 20GB to 6GB. The storage is FusionIO 320GB MLC card with XFS-nobarrier. .

While the raw results are available on Wiki, there are graphical results.

I intentionally put all line on the same graph to show trends.

The innodb_plugin – a pleasant surprise!
+4 Vote Up -0Vote Down

I’ve heard about the innodb_plugin but not had time to put it to the test.

Recently though due to some problems I’ve been having with the MySQL Enterprise Monitor (http://www.mysql.com/products/enterprise/monitor.html" target="_blank) (Merlin) I’ve had to try a few changes and had the opportunity to try out the innodb plugin.

I have been using Merlin for some time and like it a lot. It is not perfect but does a good job for me.  However, since upgrading to version 2.1 I have been having some database load problems. I long ago split the merlin server into a front- and back-end server with the backend running a standard MySQL 5.1 Advanced package. That has been working fine.

I have been monitoring more and more mysqld servers and recently the
