TokuDB is a high-performance, transactional storage engine for MySQL and MariaDB. For more details, see our product page.

This repository contains the MySQL plugin that uses the TokuKV core.

There are also patches to the MySQL and MariaDB kernels, available in our forks of mysql and mariadb.


The scripts/ directory contains a script that can be used to build a working MySQL or MariaDB with Tokutek patches, and with the TokuDB storage engine, called make.mysql.bash. This script will download copies of the needed source code from github and build everything.

To build MySQL with TokuDB 7.1.0:

scripts/make.mysql.bash --mysqlbuild=mysql-5.5.30-tokudb-7.1.0-linux-x86_64

To build MariaDB with TokuDB 7.1.0:

scripts/make.mysql.bash --mysqlbuild=mariadb-5.5.30-tokudb-7.1.0-linux-x86_64

Before you start, make sure you have a C++11-compatible compiler (GCC >= 4.7 is recommended), as well as CMake >=2.8.8, and the libraries and header files for valgrind,zlib, and Berkeley DB.

On CentOS, yum install valgrind-devel zlib-devel libdb-devel

On Ubuntu, apt-get install valgrind zlib1g-dev libdb-dev

You can set the compiler by passing --cc and --cxx to the script, to select one that's new enough. The default is scripts/make.mysql.bash --cc=gcc47 --cxx=g++47, which may not exist on your system.

To build a debug MySQL with TokuDB using the head of the Tokutek github repositories, run this:
