[News] MySQL Runs Nicely on SSD While Microsoft Struggles with It

Hash: SHA1

Benchmarking SSD for MySQL

,----[ Quote ]
| Today I bought Intel X25-M, to test its performance and consider if we could 
| replace a HDD used in our slave database of Pathtraq with a solid state disk.

| As in 1.6 GHz Intel Atom. So it still comes with Linux pre-installed on the
| 4GB SSD drive and includes 1GB of RAM which is more than plenty. My original
| Eee PC was pretty zippy when running Linux with just half of that.

| The article on El Reg begins with what I think is a highly debatable (at
| best) or dubious (in reality) statement: namely, that you should opt for a
| netbook with an SSD, or solid state drive, instead of a model with a more
| traditional hard drive. "We'd argue that the solid-state drive is what the
| SCC is all about," El Reg argues, "capacity enough for the OS and a sub-set
| of your data, with the resilience you want from a throw-around machine."

| Tweak #4: Ditch the journal and RAID your SSDs.  File system journaling is
| done primarily for increased reliability, but it’s a drag on performance.
| Given that SSDs by their nature are going to be less prone to reliability
| quirks than a conventional drive, Mandrake suggests creating a RAID1 of two
| SSD units and formatting the file system to ext2, or formatting them to ext3
| and mounting them as ext2 in the /etc/fstab. Dump your MySQL database on a
| RAID of ext2 SSDs, and you’ll be in performance hog heaven.

If your SSD sucks, blame Vista, says SSD vendor

,----[ Quote ]
| It's Windows Vista's fault that solid-state storage isn't performing as well
| as its proponents predicted. So said SanDisk CEO Eli Harari, but at least he
| didn't go as far as saying it's Microsoft's problem to fix.



Vista - How Much Memory Can I Have With Windows Vista?

,----[ Quote ]
| We'd say that if you're running a 32bit version of Vista (or XP for that
| matter), not to bother putting in more than 3GB of memory - you just won't
| get the use of anything more. Certain companies such as Dell actively market
| PCs with 32bit Vista and 4GB of RAM - surely a waste although their small
| print does warn you'll only get to use 3GB of it.
