More analysis of InnoDB Thread Concurrency

When I worked with Dimitri on the analysis of the
Split Rollback Segment Mutex he came up with numbers
on InnoDB Thread Concurrency set to 16 and 32 and I was curious
to see if 24 was the optimal setting. So he made some new runs and
some new graphs that I found interesting.

The first graph analyses behaviour of MySQL 5.4.0 on a SPARC
Server using InnoDB Thread Concurrency set to 0, 16, 24 and 32.
Interestingly for both readonly and readwrite benchmarks the
optimal setting for concurrency is 16 whereas the top numbers
(at 32 threads) is achieved with concurrency set to 24 or 32.

More data on InnoDB Thread Concurrency

Here is the performance graph comparing using
InnoDB Thread Concurrency equal to 0 and
InnoDB Thread Concurrency equal to 24 using
sysbench readwrite with the new InnoDB
Thread concurrency algorithm as introduced
in MySQL 5.4.0.

MySQL 5.4 Patches: InnoDB Thread Concurrency

When benchmarking MySQL with InnoDB we quickly discovered
that using InnoDB Thread Concurrency set to 0 was an
improvement to performance since the implementation of
InnoDB Thread Concurrency used a mutex which in itself was
a scalability bottleneck.

Given that InnoDB Thread Concurrency is a nice feature that
ensures that one gets good performance also on an overloaded
server I was hoping to find a way to make the implementation
of this more scalable.

I tried out many different techniques using a combination of
mutexes and atomic variables. However every technique fell to
the ground and was less performant than setting it to 0 and not
using the InnoDB Thread Concurrency implementation. So I was
ready to give up the effort and move on to other ideas.

However after sleeping on it an inspirational idea came up.
Why use a mutex …
