We did our best to eliminate bugs and problems during the testing this release, but this is a software, so bugs are expected. If you encounter them, please report them to our bug tracking system.



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

  • Steve,

    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: http://www.mysqlperformanceblog.com/2013/04/24/percona-server-5-5-30-with-tokudb-for-mysql/


  • Vadim,

    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?


  • 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

  • Dan,

    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.
