Sysbench OLTP Performance: Atlantis HyperScale and Intel Xeon E5-2600 v4 CPUs
As part of our commitment to making available the latest processor models on Atlantis HyperScale hyperconverged appliances, we were able to test Intel’s newly released Xeon® E5-2600 v4 “Broadwell-EP” based processors starting with the Sysbench OLTP MySQL database. We took an existing HyperScale CX-12 that ships with Intel Xeon E5-2600 v3 “Haswell” processors and replaced the CPUs with Intel Xeon E5-2697A v4 processor, which are 2.6GHz (16C/32C) processor. With 16 cores of compute power per CPU and 8 CPUs in a 4-node 2 Rack Unit Atlantis HyperScale CX-12, we have 128 CPU cores at our disposal. With this impressive amount of processing power, we were able to achieve 2783 transaction per second on a single appliance. To put this in perspective, Wikipedia uses MySQl and has peak database transactions of 25,000 transactions per second (TPS)[i]. This means that nine Atlantis HyperScale CX-12 appliances could handle the transaction load of the entire Wikipedia database.[ii]
Sysbench OLTP Benchmark
Sysbench is a system performance benchmark that includes an Online Transaction Processing (OLTP) test profile. The OLTP test is not an approximation of an OLTP test, but is rather a true database-backed benchmark that conducts transactional queries to an instance of MySQL in a CentOS environment.
