Subject:Deciding whether to convert to InnoDB
View as plain text  

I'm sure this has been asked before, but I cannot find solid evidence as 
to whether switching would provide us with any benefits.

We currently run MyIsam tables on 4.1.x and we are continuously 
processing 24 hours/day and using about 20 tables heavily.  The process 
is generally doing Updates or Inserts depending on whether the row is 
available for updates, otherwise new rose is inserted and then updates 
until the next time bucket.  It's always a different time bucket though, 
not always the same row being used.  We found that running 3 processing 
threads seems to be around optimal (10 was too many, 1 was too little) 
for being able to process the maximum amount.  Mysql runs at 100% pretty 
much constantly. 

Now would InnoDB help in this situation?  Would it allow us to increase 
the thread count to push more through in a shorter amount of time 
(because the tables wouldn't be locking)? 

And if so, would it be enough to justify the extra space required for
