MySQL 5.7 Innodb performans issue


(again I must say).

Over a year ago I experienced a severe drop in the MySQL Innodb performance after ugrading to MySQL 
5.6. I did not found any solution to that so I downgraded back to 5.5.33 and lived with in until 

After a system disk crash I replaced the system disk with an identical disk, upgraded the test 
server to Fedora Core 21 and installed MySQL 5.7.7 by downloading RPM files.

Now I'm facing the same problem with poor Innodb performance.

How have I messured the performance? I got a data collector system that get new data from mails 
(stored as files). The system read the files, store data in the database and then prerform a lot of 
calulcations on the data.

The performance is messured by how many jobs the system can process when putting months of mails 
into a queue at once. While I was using 5.5.53 it processed about 2000 "jobs" per minute with a peak 
up to 2500.

Each time I test the system I use an initial database and the same mail files, so the input is 
always the same.

With 5.7.7 the performance has dropped by a factor 4 - about 500-600 jobs per minute.

I have played with the settings in my.cnf file but nothing seem to have any influence on the 
performance. So I'm using more or less the same settings for both version.

Another thing I have noticed is that when running the test with MySQL 5.5.33, the hard disk LED was 
mostly dark. But now, it is flashing like h**l. So it seems like the problem has to do with the disk 

I would be very glad to get some feedback on this that would bring my performance back to "normal" 

About the server:
System disk (where the binlogs are stored) is a regular magnetic disk.

All Innodb files are stored on a SSD disk mounted with "defaults, 

The system got 32 Gb memory and have an AMD 8-core CPU (AMD FX-8120).

This is my.cnf I'm currently using:
