This presentation will teach you the InnoDB internals you need to know for performance optimization and operational tasks. You’ll learn topics such as how InnoDB allocates space on the filesystem and in memory, how InnoDB recovery works, and how MVCC and locking work. We’ll also cover the insert buffer and doublewrite buffer, and how InnoDB purges old data. We will not get into code-level details, but will go deep enough that you can conceptually understand the InnoDB architecture and predict its behavior.
