Dynimizer: The Big Picture

In a nutshell, the purpose of Dynimizer is to help further the progress of general purpose computing performance. This progress has provided society with a steady stream of new computing applications that have helped us in myriad ways. Greater performance allows for more complex computing tasks, increasing the usefulness of software across all domains. Over the past ten years, the rate of improvement has been significantly reduced in several ways. The mission of Dynimize is to contribute towards the continuation of this progress through the development of CPU performance virtualization.


How is progress in processor performance made?

For the remainder of this post, we interchange the terms CPU (central processing unit), processor, and microprocessor, even though the true definitions may differ slightly.

Machine instructions are the building blocks of all software. A computer program can be seen as …

Dynimizer + MySQL Cross-Microarchitecture Analysis

In this blog post I will discuss how the Dynimizer cross microarchitecture performance results were obtained, followed by an analysis of these results.

You can download the scripts to generate similar graphs for your own system from here. Note this repository also contains the results generated for all the tests performed. A trace of the script executing each command was generated by using #!/bin/bash -x, and saved in the output.log files. A full run across all 5 benchmarks takes approximately 2 hrs on the systems I used.


In order to use these scripts, you must first install Dynimizer:

wget -O install
wget  …

Madrid MySQL Users Group worth creating?

I had a quick look around and could see no MySQL user groups locally, so it might be nice to create such a group and exchange ideas over a beer, coffee or cola every once in a while. If you’re in Madrid and are interested please let me know. I’ve created a temporary  email address: madrid-mysql-users-2013 AT (careful with the domain), which you can contact me on to confirm an interest.  Oh and I’d expect these meet ups to be in Spanish, but that’s not a requirement.

Estoy interesado en reunirme y compartir experiencias sobre el uso de MySQL y administración de servidores de MySQL con la gente aquí en Madrid. He echado un vistazo en Internet y no he visto ningún grupo de usuarios de MySQL a nivel local, por lo que sería bueno crear un grupo e intercambiar ideas mientras tomamos …
