Aktualy I do now some profiling now we want to see the differences when switching 31-1.
We used myISAM since the biggest problem is speed and immoDB showed to be crash sensitive.
We store long time series data so the system is writing data all the time.
FYI: we consider for now both options reducing partitions sizes (downside that would explode
the number on fp), and switching back to mysql.
But it seems that tokuDB is good at inserts, maybe that is a point.
