    We at Tokutek are proud to be included in this Alpha release, it took a considerable amount of engineering and quality assurance. Looking forward to the GA party!

    Tim, on our side (Percona) I should say we really appreciate a cooperation from Tokutek and we enjoy working with you on this project!

    Please say it doesn’t store all the files in the root of datadir like the standard Toku distribution…!

    @SteveJackson, it does. That is something we at Tokutek has to change, and is not a Percona effort. We plan on making several file system changes/improvements this year.

    We can’t do anything without Tokutek help in this regard.
    Please note there is tokudb_data_dir variable, with it you can change
    where TokuDB stores files (still all in the single dir)

    Does the test release of v5.5 with TokuDB support these features or do they have to be implemented by Percona?

    5.5 version I’m referring to:

    5.5 was a purely experimental build, and no longer recommended to use, it is almost 1 year old.
    Since that TokuDB had a lot of improvements and fixes.

    I’m currently looking into Percona Server w/ TokuDB to run an archive server because of it’s compression. Do you have any idea when there will be a stable release?

    We are looking to have a stable release by early May, 2014.

    I’ve failed to compile percona-server-5.6.16-64.0-tokudb-7.1.5-rc.3 again and again… 🙁

    gcc –version
    gcc (GCC) 4.7.3
    Copyright (C) 2012 Free Software Foundation, Inc.
    This is free software; see the source for copying conditions. There is NO

    cmake –version
    cmake version

    tokudb was ignored while running Cmake. And it seems the check bellow was failed…

    struct a {int b; int c; };
    struct a d = { .b=1, .c=2 };
    int main() { return 0; }
    ” TOKUDB_OK)

    any advice ?
    thanks in advance

    Do you have any estimate on when XtraBackup will include support for live backup of TokuDB tables ?

    June 13, 2014 at 10:26 am
  • Vadim Tkachenko


    At this time we do not have plans to include TokuDB support into Percona XtraBackup.
    From OpenSource solutions we propose to use LVM backup or mydumper to backup TokuDB tables.
    You also can get an Enterprise backup from Tokutek.
