Doing performance tuning on distributed systems is no joking matter. It's much more complicated than on a single node server, and bottlenecks can pop up anywhere, from system resources in a single node or subcomponent, to cooperation between nodes, to even network bandwidth. Performance tuning is a practice that aims to find these bottlenecks and address them, in order to reveal more bottlenecks and address them as well, until the system reaches an optimal performance level. In this article, I will share some best practices on how to tune "write" operations in TiDB to achieve maximum performance.

At the crack of dawn on February 1, I landed in Brussels, Belgium, for the first time in my life. The goal of my trip wasn't to taste the local cuisine, tour world-famous museums, or grab a pint of the local brew. It was to deliver a talk three days later at FOSDEM 2018 Rust Devroom about our experience at PingCAP using Rust to build TiKV, a distributed transactional Key-Value storage engine.

At re:Invent 2017, Amazon Web Services (AWS) announced Amazon Time Sync Service which is a highly accurate and reliable time reference that is natively accessible from Amazon EC2 instances. It is much like the Google TrueTime which was published in 2012. Why do Google and AWS both want to make efforts to provide global time service? Is there any inspiration for building distributed database? This topic is important to think about.

Paxos or Raft is frequently used to ensure data consistency in the distributed computing area. But Paxos is known for its complexity and is rather difficult to understand while Raft is very simple. Therefore, a lot of emerging databases tend to use Raft as the consensus algorithm at its bottom layer. TiKV is no exception.

Every developer has his/her favorite programming language. For the TiKV team members, it's Rust.
