Subject:Available parallelism in MySQL community edition 5.1.34?
View as plain text  
If I have a computer with many cores and multiple disks, disjoint 
filesystems on those disks, and enough I/O bandwidth in the machine to 
keep the disks busy, can MySQL keep those disks busy if I have it working 
on different databases at the same time?  If so, can one MySQL server 
process do that, or do I need multiple server processes?  If one process 
is enough, presumably I have to say something clever in my.cnf to make it 
happen; what would that be?  If it can be done with multiple server 
processes, can I get that from one MySQL installation (and if so, how) or 
do I need to somehow fool my package management system (RPM on RHEL) into 
doing multiple installations?

Thanks,
Mike Spreitzer
