WL#3137: Maria - optional log partitioning
Status: Un-Assigned — Priority: Medium
The original idea is <quote> If we say that the log is the hot spot (the mutex to write to its end is used 100%, assume this is a multi-CPU machine, Gray says this can happen): we could have two logs (one on one disk, the other on another different disk). Here it's not mirrored logs (no redundancy), it's "log partitioning" or "log load balancing" for performance: 1) if transaction_id is even, it will write its log entries to log file "log_even" 2) if transaction_id is odd, it will write its log entries to log file "log_odd" (the transaction_id odd/even thing is stable through restarts) 3) there has to be a shared counter "global LSN" so that there is an order between entries of log_even and of log_odd (one can know which event is before the other, needed at recovery). Atomic_add could do it cheap. </quote> The original idea and the discussion which followed are in the mailarchive, Message-ID: <20060203103336.GC5813@mysql.com>
