Based on MySQL 5.7.17, including all the bug fixes in it, Percona Server 5.7.17-12 is the current GA release in the Percona Server 5.7 series. All of Percona‘s software is open-source and free, all the details of the release can be found in the 5.7.17-12 milestone at Launchpad
Percona Server has implemented new mysqldump
--order-by-primary-descoption. This feature tells
mysqldumpto take the backup by descending primary key order (
PRIMARY KEY DESC) which can be useful if storage engine is using reverse order column family for a primary key.
mysqldump will now detect when MyRocks is installed and available by seeing if there is a session variable named
rocksdb_skip_fill_cacheand setting it to
1if it exists.
mysqldump will now automatically enable session variable
rocksdb_bulk_loadif it is supported by target server.
If the variable
thread_handlingwas set to
pool-of-threadsin the MySQL configuration file, server couldn’t be gracefully shut down by a
