Mariadb/MySQL - extremely slow performance in Slackware64-current


just curious if anybody else finds mariadb 10.3.12 in Slackware64-current performing very poorly ?

Some time ago I've upgraded from Slackware64 14.1 to Current and found out at one untouched Django project, its database initialisation (~200 tables creation etc) feels much slower then before - like from 10 seconds to 4 minutes. Very intensive disk access during that operation, but caching is enabled and only besides default server settings is use of utf8 encoding (collation-server = utf8mb4_unicode_ci, init-connect='SET NAMES utf8mb4' and character-set-server = utf8mb4).

I did also tested database initialisation for quite other application (Rails, diffrent db driver) and it also performed very poorly.

Is that some known issue or experience of some another Slackware user ?

Between 14.1 and current are quite big change in mariadb versions. If you use your custom my.cnf, there is probability that is is no longer optimal for newer one. If you use default config, the default options may be totally different, and in effect also performance.

So make sure your configuration is proper for newer mariadb.
