    1. Does this release include a patch to start/stop query logging on the fly (generate_log variables)?
    2.Does the Percona 5.0 change the format of the data on disk?
    I want to use it in out production machine that is running ubuntu 8.04 server and mysql-5.0.51a.
    If I move to percona-5.0.86-b19 and later decide to switch back to 5.0.51a, would it work?

    Thanks for you great contribution to the Mysql community.

    I tried the lenny repo you listed, and I was also seeing if you had a testing repo I could track. Both 404 (I expected 404 on testing).

    1. If you mean logging slow queries, than the answer is yes.
    2. The patches don’t change data format, so you should be safe doing downgrade. But backups are strongly advised anyway when you change MySQL version

  4. Aleksandr Kuzminsky says


    The problem is there are no packages for i386 platform. We support only x86_64.

  5. obfuscated says

    I need a way to enable/disable logging all queries not just the slow ones.
    In 5.1+ this could be done with generate-log variables on the fly.
