How to minimize the InnoDB page evictions in a MySQL full in-memory db?

systems28347systems28347 EntrantInactive User Role Beginner
I have a Percona 5.6 MySQL server, on a server which has enough memory to contain the entire dataset.


`Total memory allocated`: 98901688320
`Innodb_buffer_pool_bytes_data`: 79246950400

Periodically, I observe batches of disk reads (via `Innodb_buffer_pool_reads`, and through the `pool hit rate` entries of the `ENGINE INNODB STATUS`).

Although such batches are not so big (order of dozens of MB), along with other factors, they are causing performance problems to the server.

Since there is more than enough memory, I would expect no evictions (and consequently, no disk reads) to happen; on startup, I load all the records of the DB (via SELECT), so all the pages should be loaded in memory.

How can I tweak InnoDB to evict as little pages as possible, possibly virtually none?
