Percona Toolkit UDFs

Three Percona Toolkit UDFs that provide faster checksums are provided:

  • libfnv1a_udf
  • libfnv_udf
  • libmurmur_udf

Version Specific Information

  • 5.6.11-60.3: Began distributing libfnv1a_udf, libfnv_udf, and libmurmur_udf.

Other Information

  • Author / Origin: Baron Schwartz


These UDFs are part of the Percona Server packages. To install one of the UDFs into the server, execute one of the following commands, depending on which UDF you want to install:

mysql -e "CREATE FUNCTION fnv1a_64 RETURNS INTEGER SONAME 'libfnv1a_udf.so'"
mysql -e "CREATE FUNCTION fnv_64 RETURNS INTEGER SONAME 'libfnv_udf.so'"
mysql -e "CREATE FUNCTION murmur_hash RETURNS INTEGER SONAME 'libmurmur_udf.so'"

Executing each of these commands will install its respective UDF into the server.


If you get the error:

ERROR 1126 (HY000): Can't open shared library 'fnv_udf.so' (errno: 22 fnv_udf.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory)

Then you may need to copy the .so file to another location in your system. Try both /lib and /usr/lib. Look at your environment’s $LD_LIBRARY_PATH variable for clues. If none is set, and neither /lib nor /usr/lib works, you may need to set LD_LIBRARY_PATH to /lib or /usr/lib.
