Charset and Collation Settings Impact on MySQL Performance

Following my post MySQL 8 is not always faster than MySQL 5.7, this time I decided to test very simple read-only CPU intensive workloads, when all data fits memory. In this workload there is NO IO operations, only memory and CPU operations.

My Testing Setup

Environment specification

  • Release | Ubuntu 18.04 LTS (bionic)
  • Kernel | 4.15.0-20-generic
  • Processors | physical = 2, cores = 28, virtual = 56, hyperthreading = yes
  • Models | 56xIntel(R) Xeon(R) Gold 5120 CPU @ 2.20GHz<
  • Memory Total | 376.6G
  • Provider | x2.xlarge.x86 instance

I will test two workloads, sysbench oltp_read_only and oltp_point_select varying amount of threads

sysbench oltp_read_only --mysql-ssl=off --report-interval=1 --time=300 …

Another example is in the case of upgrading a master x master replication topology.

Officially, replication is only supported between consecutive major MySQL versions, and only from a lower version master to a higher version slave. Here is an example of a supported scenario:

5.7 master –> 8.0 slave

while the opposite is not supported:

8.0 master –> 5.7 slave

In this blog post, I’ll walk through how to overcome the …

Many MySQL novices find MySQL character sets support puzzling. But after you understand how it is designed, you will find it much more powerful than many other competing database solutions.

MySQL allows to specify a character set for every object, and change it online. For years this has helped to create fast applications that can work …
