Paul McCullagh answers your questions about PBXT

Following on from our earlier announcement, Paul McCullagh has responded with the answers to your questions – as well as a few I gathered from other Percona folks, and attendees of OpenSQL Camp. Thank you Paul! What’s the “ideal” use case for the PBXT engine, and how does it compare in performance?  When would I […]

Will Percona Support Drizzle ?

People are asking me if Percona will support Drizzle and what is in general our position regarding this project. First about Support. We surely will support the customers if they select to run the Drizzle instead of MySQL Server. For us it is same as supporting MySQL Server with custom patches, which we do. In […]

The tool I’ve been waiting for years

I’ve just been pointed to the nice tool which I was waiting for years to see. It is fincore – little perl script which allows you to see what pages of file are cached in OS memory. This is really cool.

Choosing innodb_buffer_pool_size

My last post about Innodb Performance Optimization got a lot of comments choosing proper innodb_buffer_pool_size and indeed I oversimplified things a bit too much, so let me write a bit better description.

Number of vendors would claim they are in Commodity Software or Hardware business but few would probably mention they are doing it for Commodity People, because few people would like to be called […]

UC2007 Presentation and Notes

I can’t write I’m just back from MySQL Users Conference both because I’m still in USA visiting customers and because it has ended almost a week ago but I was too busy to write anything about it or post my presentations. This was my 5th MySQL Users Conference so I met a lot of good […]

PBXT benchmarks

The PBXT Storage Engine (http://www.primebase.com/xt/) is getting stable and we decided to benchmark it in different workloads. This time I tested only READ queries, similar to ones in benchmark InnoDB vs MyISAM vs Falcon (http://www.mysqlperformanceblog.com/2007/01/08/innodb-vs-myisam-vs-falcon-benchmarks-part-1) The difference is I used new sysbench with Lua scripting language, so all queries were scripted for sysbench.
