WHM/Cpanel – Percona 5.1.55 & 5.5.8 MySQL Installation

Tried and tested MySQL 5.5.10 on WHM Cpanel server, so next up is Percona 5.1.55 rel 12.6 and Percona 5.5.8-20 Beta installations. The purpose is in preparation for MySQL benchmarks on Quad Intel Xeon L7555 Nehalem-EX Octo-Core server (64 cpu cores) with 64GB DDR3 memory.

I’ll end up comparing MySQL 5.0.92, MySQL 5.1.55, MySQL 5.5.10, MariaDB 5.2.5 and Percona 5.1.55 and 5.5.8 beta for both MyISAM and InnoDB performance and how each respective version scales from 1 to 64 cpu cores. Interesting results when you benchmark against different linux schedulers – cfq, deadline and noop.

Follow me on twitter for notice when the benchmarks come out.
