By Jennifer Glore on May 01, 2009
Hopefully, at this point, you have heard about the new MySQL release, MySQL 5.4, which focuses on performance improvements (mainly for Innodb). Details on benchmarks that were run for this release can be found at Allan Packer's blog here. He talks about Sysbench performance on Nehalem with 5.4 (Linux and Solaris) as well as scalability of sysbench on 64-way CMT systems.
