I had done number of iterations for benchmark run and I used dedicated physical hardware box so external … 5.6 performance post

I ran small (1M rows) benchmark so data was well fitting in memory and Read Only one to simplify things and get more repeatable results without spending too much time on it. I used Ubuntu 12.04 on some old Dell PowerEdge 2850 server. The questions I tried to answer are how much slower 5.6 is for such simple workload ? How much of this slowness comes from Performance Schema ? Whenever we get difference higher or lower with high concurrency compared to …
