InnoDB Buffer Pool Instances is too small

If you are using MariaDB/MySQL 5.5 and newer you should use several InnoDB Buffer Pool Instances for performance reasons.
Some rules to size InnoDB Buffer Pool instances are:

  • One InnoDB Buffer Pool Instance should be at least 1 Gibyte in size (innodb_buffer_pool_size / innodb_buffer_pool_instances >= 1 Gib).
  • InnoDB Buffer Pool Instances you can set equal to the number of cores of your machine.

Warming up the InnoDB Buffer Pool during start-up

Taxonomy upgrade extras: 

Abstract: Heating up the InnoDB Buffer Pool during the MySQL instance startup should significantly improve InnoDB Performance in the beginning of the life of the Instance. This is achieved by sequential scans of the needed data instead of random I/O reads which would happen when we just let the system work it out by itself.
How to find the database objects which can be loaded during MySQL start-up and how to load them automatically is described in this article.
