20-30% Performance Hit from the Spectre Bug Fix on Ubuntu

In this blog post, we’ll look at the performance hit from the Spectre bug fix on Ubuntu.

Recently we measured the performance penalty from the Meltdown fix on Ubuntu servers. It turned out to be negligible.

Today, Ubuntu made a Spectre bug fix on Ubuntu available, shipped in kernel 4.4.0-112. As with the Meltdown fix, we measured the effect of this update. Unfortunately, we observed a major performance penalty on MySQL workloads with this new kernel.

Our benchmark used the following:


  • CPU:
    • 2 x Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU E5-2680 v3 @ 2.50GHz (Codename Haswell)
    • /proc/cpuinfo has 48 …

Meltdown and Spectre: CPU Security Vulnerabilities

In this blog post, we examine the recent revelations about CPU security vulnerabilities.

The beginning of the new year also brings to light fresh and new CPU security vulnerabilities. Today’s big offenders originate on the hardware side – more specifically, the CPU. The reported hardware kernel bugs allow for direct access to data held in the computer/server’s memory, which in turn might leak sensitive data. Some of the most popular CPUs affected by these bugs are Intel, AMD and ARM.

The most important thing to know is that this vulnerability is not exploitable remotely, and requires that someone execute the malicious code locally. However, take extra precaution when running in virtualized environments (see below for more information).

A full overview (including a technical, in-depth …

Using NVMe Command Line Tools to Check NVMe Flash Health

In this blog post, I’ll look at the types of NVMe flash health information you can get from using the NVMe command line tools.

Checking SATA-based drive health is easy. Whether it’s an SSD or older spinning drive, you can use the


 command to get a wealth of information about the device’s performance and health. As an example:

root@blinky:/var/lib/mysql# smartctl -A /dev/sda
smartctl 6.5 2016-01-24 r4214 [x86_64-linux-4.4.0-62-generic] (local build)

we use tcpcopy to make real traffic on our core systems. Many problems will be found in advance if we enlarge queries several times.


Infiniflash Benchmark

Sandisk (FusionIO) and Nexenta are working together to build this SDS solution.

Infiniflash is a very large SDS production, which manages for very large DW system who requires large storage space and also high IOPS.

We test infiniflash system ,read this Infiniflash_benchmark

Hello dear readers and attendees,

This is the post that I will be/ will have been referencing during my presentation to the Seattle Central Community College’s Byte club on Thursday, December 10th at 1500-1630.

I will begin with a bit of an autobio and find out what kind of students we have in attendance. Please feel free to comment if you’d like to keep in touch before or after the presentation. I will discuss some of the bits and pieces of some industry standard platforms which I’ve developed, deployed, maintained, managed, co-operated, administered and replaced. We can discuss some of the patterns that work well in the industry, and some that are a bit harder to tame.

Once we have touched most of the areas of specialization represented at the meeting, I will dive in to an AngularJS demo I am developing in github here:

NVMFS Supports Atomic Writes

Benchmark for NVMFS (supports atomic writes ,so we can close double-write option on specific MySQL version )

tips: some Flash-based cards could support large block map , the main idea is to avoid fractured page writes.
