I believe that innodb has a single read thread. However, with MariaDB you can set multiple read threads. I'm unsure what the recommended value would be.


  • Does anyone have any experience with MariaDB and performance tuning?
  • Can you think of any features within MariaDB that XtraDB uses that MySQL does not?
  • Are there any similar settings that can I can use to fully exploit XtraDB and Maria's enhanced functionality?

InnoDB in Percona Server 5.0.91 and MySQL 5.5.x has three options

These options were introduced in MySQL 5.1.38 InnoDB Plugin

Tuning these will engage more CPUs within InnoDB/XtraDB

I have discussed this in past posts in the DBA StackExchange along with other InnoDB tuning suggestions

Click here for the XtraDB features that the InnoDB Plugin does not have.
