My question is in reference to the 1st and 2nd graphs on this page.
While testing the performance of the databases given in this graph, the
one thing that sticks out is that when Mysql uses the myisam engine with
the ULE schedular, performance drops quite considerably regardless of
mysql version. The clearly shows ULE to perform worst at higher work
loads than 4BSD, at least in this one example.
Now, I read that lockmgr code is still a work in progress, but I'm
unsure if that applies specifically to this specific problem that I'm
providing. What I'm hoping for quite frankly is a "yes, this is
because...." type of response.
This isn't a problem per se, but rather a curiosity type of question.
myisam has huge lock contention, so probably ULE is more efficiently
scheduling the processes and increasing contention yet further, leading
to a net drop of performance. That kind of thing is fairly common when
you have a workload with high contention; if you improve performance at
one bottleneck the performance at a later bottleneck can get worse.
Performance will still be better on other workloads, or when further
work improves the other bottlenecks.
