Mark Callaghan runs some benchmarks against MySQL 5.6.11:
Using MySQL 5.6.11 and InnoDB with a few hacks the peak throughput was about
240,000 QPS and 210,000 block reads/second. The test server has 32 cores (16
physical cores, 32 logical cores with HT enabled). This is a great result
that can probably be even better. Contention on fil_system->mutex was the
bottleneck and I think that can be improved (see feature request #69276). I
wonder if 400,000 block reads/second is possible?
