Subject:Re: shall i jump from 5.1 to 5.5
View as plain text  
you noticed that most optimizing in 5.5 affects InnoDB
and if you are using MyISAm in your benchmark it
is useless?

having MySQL 5.5 running on InnoDB with some GB big tables
and REALLY concuerrent load as for a mailserver (dbmail)
you will notice a hughe performance increasment
