Is INSERT slower in xtradb when compared to innodb?

acerolaacerola ContributorCurrent User Role Novice
I recently changed hardware for my database. I also changed form MySQL 5.6 to Percona 5.6.

I noticed that insertions are much slower, like 10+ times slower. I am using the same database and the same configuration I used before. I only use InnoDB tables.

Is Percona known to be slower for insertions than MySQL?

Here is my.cnf. The server has 32GB RAM.


innodb_strict_mode = ON
innodb_buffer_pool_size = 24G
innodb_file_per_table = ON
innodb_file_format = Barracuda

innodb_log_files_in_group = 2
innodb_log_file_size = 1G
innodb_log_buffer_size = 128M
innodb_flush_log_at_trx_commit = 1
#innodb_print_all_deadlocks = ON
innodb_thread_concurrency = 8

max_allowed_packet = 1G

tmp_table_size = 1G
max_heap_table_size = 1G

    Insersion 10 times slower than innoDB is not a correct expection. I would suggest you run the database on the same hardware configuration and see further results.

    Could you provide details regarding the hardware changes made along with any other operating system changes that you may be aware of.
