Mysql 8 which linux / Unix Distro would have better performance (2021 topic)

All we need is an easy explanation of the problem, so here it is.

I want to setup a mysql 8 with MyRocks engine and BUILD from source with my custom parameters.

Is there any recommendation on which linux / unix distro would have better performances ?

CentOS stream
Fedora 34

HARDWARE that I have access to :
Premium Intel with NVMe SSD

I searched on the web for benchmarks but search engines throw anything but that…. 🙁

If it’s the wrong forum to ask this, please tell me where I could ask those questions.


How to solve :

I know you bored from this bug, So we are here to help you! Take a deep breath and look at the explanation of your problem. We have many solutions to this problem, But we recommend you to use the first method because it is tested & true method that will 100% work for you.

Method 1

The performance differences between those distros are so subtle that any of them could be the best choice for a given workload. The only way to get a definitive answer for your workload is for you to run your own benchmarks.

None of them are likely to be a great bottleneck on MySQL, or a great advantage over the others.

I’d recommend that you just pick the one which you are most experienced with, to make administration easier.

Note: Use and implement method 1 because this method fully tested our system.
Thank you 🙂
