MariaDB + PBXT


Hi All,

I am not sure of the procedure myself.

I have just proposed merge of the maria-pbxt tree into lp:maria.

It resulted in me, and all other captains, getting a HUGE diff in an e- mail - SORRY! Mac Mail really struggled, Yikes!

Anyway, here is the what the change includes:

This branch includes the current MariaDB revision (2689) and the PBXT storage engine. The only changes are the addition of a storage/pbxt and a mysql-test/suite/pbxt directory.

The mysql-test/suite/pbxt directory contains a test suite for PBXT. The test includes 167 test files. All tests run through without error. To run the tests use:

./mysql-test-run  --mysqld=--default-storage-engine=pbxt --suite=pbxt

In other words, you have to set the default storage engine to PBXT for this test to run.

PBXT only creates files when the first PBXT table is created.

So when you start MariaDB you will only know that PBXT is installed because of the startup message it prints in the log. It does not create any files in the database root directory.

Please let me know if this is OK for merge.

Best regards,
