Not to stray off-topic, but also look at implementing performance/failover from a software standpoint and not just hardware. Hardware RAID active/active is great and you can build cheap SAN's that do that, but you can also significantly increase performance by using a MySQL cluster.

MariaDB is from the author of MySQL, and they have their Galera cluster product with multi-master active/active support. Combine that with TokuDB engine and you can dramatically improve INSERTs over a typical InnoDB config.

I am considering converting from InnoDB to TokuDB.


Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
