Percona Blog Poll Results: What Database Engine Are You Using to Store Time Series Data?

In this blog post, we talk about the results of Percona’s time series database poll “What Database Engine Are You Using to Store Time Series Data?”

Time series data is some of the most actionable data available when it comes to analyzing trends and making predictions. Simply put, time series data is data that is indexed not just by value, but by time as well – allowing you to view value changes over time as they occur. Obvious uses include the stock market, web traffic, user behavior, etc.

With the increasing number of smart devices in the Internet of Things (IoT), being able to track data over time is more and more important. With time series data, you can measure and make …

Write-heavy workloads with MyRocks

MyRocks is based on RocksDB and RocksDB is write-optimized, so why don't write-heavy workloads always run faster on MyRocks than on InnoDB? I will start with a summary of MyRocks versus InnoDB: MyRocks has better space & write efficiency, frequently has better write latency and sometimes has better read latency. Better space & write efficiency means you use less SSD and it will last longer.

Don't forget that better write and space efficiency with MyRocks can lead to better read latency. When a database engine does fewer writes to storage there is more IO capacity available for reads which is a big deal with disk and can be a big deal with slower SSD. When a database engine uses less space in storage then it is likely to cache more data in RAM and have better cache hit rates on reads. Many of the benchmarks that I run …
