    Hum, okay. But I’ll ask one question that everyone finding this post via Google will ask anyways:


  3. Why? Obviously because you want to tune your query cache.

    .. ahem.. sorry…

    The MySQL query cache can be a very useful tool, but if you have a high volume of queries and you don’t tune it properly it can become a bottleneck. By tuning the QC you eliminate that bottleneck and (hopefully) improve performance.

      How does one tune away the mutex contention? It does not scale on multi-core servers.

    • Julian says:

      So 0 is the best tuning you can have. Sure.

  4. I like it, and I advertised it.

    But I liked your optimization operator more.

    This is a bug report for your online query cache tuner.

    It doesn’t also say to set query_cache_type = 0 if your MySQL version is 5.5 or higher, to eliminate taking the qc mutex.

    Bet you never thought you’d get a bug report on that. :)
