Re: Mysql 5.6: Are these calculations for innodb_buffer_pool_size and instances correct?

?! Again, instances may affect concurrency performance, they are not a remedy for a too-small ib buffer. A warning "difficult to find free blocks in the buffer pool" suggests more RAM may be needed.
Your post says you're running MySQL 5.6, which is EOL in three months. Your log entry says you're running MariaDB 10.0, which has already passed its EOL date. Each successive MySQL version needs more RAM.

If it's me, I upgrade to 8.0 then run diagnostics (eg "cheatsheet" at and calculate the growth rate to see how much RAM is needed now and how much is likely to be needed in the next year or two.

And again, buffer pool instances are more relevant to concurrency---is that a current issue or not?
