Question regarding mariadb-dump/mysqldump and rocksdb


Hi MariaDB,

in Myrocks / Facebook MySQL there was a useful addition to mysqldump which
makes queries issued by the dumper not add to the block cache of the
rocksdb instance. It was added quite some time ago:


The corresponding server variable used is *rocksdb_skip_fill_cache*

Is this active in MariaDB's version of mysqldump as well? The server
variable exists in MariaDB's MyRocks (checked for 10.6.12) but I have not
found a reference in MariaDB's source code when searching for

If it is not active it would be great if it could be added in a future
