Faster, better, stronger: The new InnoDB

  • Marko Mäkelä, Lead Developer, MariaDB

For MariaDB Enterprise Server 10.5, the default transactional storage engine, InnoDB, has been significantly rewritten to improve the performance of writes and backups. Next, we removed a number of parameters to reduce unnecessary complexity, not only in terms of configuration but of the code itself. And finally, we improved crash recovery thanks to better consistency checks and we reduced memory consumption and file I/O thanks to an all new log record format.

In this session, we walk through all of the improvements to InnoDB, and dive deep into the implementation to explain how these improvements help everything from configuration and performance to reliability and recovery.
