Based on MySQL 5.5.13, Percona Server Percona Server 5.5.13-20.4 is now the current stable release in the 5.5 series. All of Percona’s software is open-source and free, all the details of the release can be found in the 5.5.13-20.4 milestone at Launchpad.
The ”SHM” buffer pool patch, which provided the ability to use a shared memory segment for the buffer pool to enable faster server restarts, has been removed. Instead, we recommend using the LRU Dump/Restore patch which provides similar improvements in restart performance.
Replacement is due to
SHM buffer pool both being very invasive and not widely used. Improved restart times are better provided by the much safer
LRU D/R patch which has the advantage of also persisting across machine restarts.
The configuration variables for
my.cnf have been kept for compatibility and warnings will be printed for the deprecated options (
innodb_buffer_pool_shm_checksum) if used.
Instructions for disabling the
SHM buffer pool can be found here.
Instructions on setting up LRU dump/restore can be found here.
