Linux HugeTLBfs: Improve MySQL Database Application Performance
A pplications that perform a lot of memory accesses (several GBs) may obtain performance improvements by using large pages due to reduced Translation Lookaside Buffer (TLB) misses.

I now got answers to the second portions of the questions you asked Heikki.
il recommande clairement d'utiliser O_DIRECT pour éviter le double buffering by Nov 15
Properties: Description: This variable changes the way InnoDB open files and flush data to disk and is should be considered as very important for InnoDB performance.

très intéressant, innob_db_buffer_size prend en fait deux fois sa taille en ram ! by Nov 8
I’m often asked how one can evaluate IO subsystem (Hard drive RAID or SAN) performance for MySQL needs so I’ve decided to write some simple steps you can take to get a good feeling about it, it is not perfect but usually can tell you quite a lot of what you should expect from the system.

Percona MySQL Consulting can often recover lost or corrupted data from MyISAM and InnoDB tables or from corrupted MySQL binary logs and general query logs. We have created special data recovery software that can recover data from InnoDB tables. If you want to try InnoDB data recovery yourself, see Percona Data Recovery Tool for InnoDB .

7.9.8 Enabling Large Page Support
Although most Linux users are familiar with the role of process schedulers, such as the new O(1) scheduler, many users are not so familiar with the role of I/O schedulers.

Linux: How to clear the cache from memory Linux has a supposedly good memory management feature that will use up any "extra" RAM you have to cache stuff. This section of the memory being used is SUPPOSED to be freely available to be taken over by any other process that actually needs it, but unfortunately my Linux (three distros now, Mandriva 32 bit, and Mandriva 64 bit, and Opensuse 11 64 bit) thinks that cache memory is too important to move over for anything else that actually needs it.

Dans cet article, je vais tenter d'expliquer les différentes informations que le noyau Linux nous donne au travers du fichier /proc/meminfo . Comme support, je vais afficher les données qui concernent mon système.

Writing to this will cause the kernel to drop clean caches, dentries and inodes from memory, causing that memory to become free. To free pagecache:
