Percona Server for MongoDBPercona announces the release of Percona Server for MongoDB 3.2.8-2.0 on August 11, 2016. Download the latest version from the Percona web site or the Percona Software Repositories.

Percona Server for MongoDB 3.2.8-2.0 is an enhanced, open-source, fully compatible, highly scalable, zero-maintenance downtime database supporting the MongoDB v3.2 protocol and drivers. It extends MongoDB with MongoRocks, Percona Memory Engine, and PerconaFT storage engine, as well as enterprise-grade features like external authentication and audit logging at no extra cost. Percona Server for MongoDB requires no changes to MongoDB applications or code.


We deprecated the PerconaFT storage engine. It will not be available in future releases.

This release is based on MongoDB 3.2.8, and includes the following additional changes:

  • Introducing the new Percona Memory Engine, which is based on a special configuration of WiredTiger that stores data in memory instead of the disk.
  • --auditDestination can now be set to file, syslog, or console.
  • --auditFormat can now be set to JSON or BSON.


    For more information, see Audit Logging.

  • The MongoRocks engine now supports LZ4 compression. This is an upstream feature of MongoRocks contributed by Percona.To enable it, use the --rocksdbCompression option when running PSMDB with the MongoRocks storage engine. For example:

    If you want to configure this permanently, set the following parameters in the /etc/mongod.conf file:

The release notes are available in the official documentation.
