Blogs on InnoDB
As you know, HailDB is based on the InnoDB Storage Engine (to be specific, currently based on the last release of Embedded InnoDB). It is the goal of HailDB to continue to provide an API to the InnoDB engine that can directly be used in applications (e.g. a database server such as Drizzle). There have been improvements in InnoDB in later MySQL releases, and we do aim to bring these to HailDB.
If you are interested in how various InnoDB (and hence HailDB) internals work, I’d recommend a few blogs:
- Transactions on InnoDB – the InnoDB team at Oracle talking about InnoDB.
- MySQL At Facebook – if you care about high performance in production, you should be reading this anyway.
- MySQL Performance Blog – the Percona blog
- Ramblings – My (Stewart’s) blog. Sometimes contains HailDB related things.
