Best Laid Plans, Innodb Plugin

We had this plan.

We were going to show off the latest Innodb plugin.

We imported into the tree... got a benchmark and then...

We found a race condition in our code that showed up once we added the new plugin to our code.

Is the plugin faster?

Sure seems to be... but make up your own mind.

You can play with it here: (which includes Solaris/Sparc support now)

Curious about the numbers? Below is a current run of sysbench from one of our 16core systems. Very soon now Jay will have the public regression system available.

What will it do? Anyone who wants to follow our efforts on performance will be able too.

Want to see if we regress? If we are getting faster?

You will be able to do that :)
