This comment is in regard to this InnoDB blog page. Trying to post a message says you need to be logged in, but there’s no register/login page I could see…
Anyway the page talks about a new feature which allows you to save on shutdown an InnoDB buffer pool and to load this on startup, this ensuring that once loaded the database will perform with this “hot” cache.
That sounds interesting as I have seen on numerous occasions that if the buffer pool is not warm then performance can be a magnitude worse.
This looks like a very welcome feature. However, a couple of things are not clear to me.
