Traditional mysqldump is 2 times faster than MyDumper

Asked by George on 2012-08-24

Hello,

We need to dump et load a database each day.
This database has more than 200 tables and the biggest table has more than 7 Million lines.

Currently we use the "traditional" mysqldump to export data.
We have read some articles about MyDumper & MyLoader and benchmark are clear : MyDumper is incredibly fast.

But after test with 4, 8 and 32 thread, mysqldump is two times faster than MyDumper in each case.

Command is executed via SSH as root.
OS and Mysql are on RAID 1.
Databases are on RAID 10.
(All RAID are in the same machine)

Can you help to find why ?

MORE INFORMATIONS :
CPU : 4 x 6 Cores (Intel Xeon)
RAM : 192 Gb
MySQL : 5.1.61
OS : CentOS 6.3

Thanks,
George.

mysqldump relies on server performance, if you have scalability issues on your server, then they may affect mydumper operation.

George (george1) said : #4

Hello Domas Mituzas,

This server is a MySQL server. Only MySQL is running (+ Samba and SSH).

We didn't start mysqldump and mydumper at the same time.
Just test mydumper with 4, 8 and 32 thread. And going back to mysqldump.

It's a new server (July 2012) with 4 x 6 Cores and 192Gb RAM. We don't understand what can affect Mydumper performance.

Do we need some special edit in my.cnf for Mydumper ?

Can you help with this problem?
