PerconaFT is a high-performance, transactional key-value store, used in the TokuDB storage engine for Percona Server and MySQL, and in TokuMX, the high-performance MongoDB distribution.
PerconaFT is provided as a shared library with an interface similar to Berkeley DB.
To build the full MySQL product, see the instructions for Percona/percona-server. This document covers PerconaFT only.
PerconaFT is built using CMake >= 2.8.9. Out-of-source builds are
recommended. You need a C++11 compiler, though only some versions
of GCC >= 4.7 and Clang are tested. You also need zlib development
yum install zlib-devel or
apt-get install zlib1g-dev).
You will also need the source code for jemalloc, checked out in
git clone git://github.com/Percona/PerconaFT.git percona-ft cd percona-ft git clone git://github.com/Percona/jemalloc.git third_party/jemalloc mkdir build cd build CC=gcc47 CXX=g++47 cmake \ -D CMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Debug \ -D BUILD_TESTING=OFF \ -D USE_VALGRIND=OFF \ -D CMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=../prefix/ \ .. cmake --build . --target install
This will build
libtokuportability.so and install it,
some header files, and some examples to
percona-ft/prefix/. It will also
build jemalloc and install it alongside these libraries, you should link
to that if you are planning to run benchmarks or in production.
PerconaFT is supported on 64-bit Centos, Debian, and Ubuntu and should work on other 64-bit linux distributions, and may work on OSX 10.8 and FreeBSD. PerconaFT is not supported on 32-bit systems.
Transparent hugepages is a feature in newer linux
kernel versions that causes problems for the memory usage tracking
calculations in PerconaFT and can lead to memory overcommit. If you have
this feature enabled, PerconaFT will not start, and you should turn it off.
If you want to run with transparent hugepages on, you can set an
TOKU_HUGE_PAGES_OK=1, but only do this for testing,
and only with a small cache size.
PerconaFT uses CTest for testing. The CDash testing dashboard is not currently public, but you can run the tests without submitting them.
There are some large data files not stored in the git repository, that will be made available soon. For now, the tests that use these files will not run.
In the build directory from above:
cmake -D BUILD_TESTING=ON .. ctest -D ExperimentalStart \ -D ExperimentalConfigure \ -D ExperimentalBuild \ -D ExperimentalTest
Please report bugs in PerconaFT to the issue tracker.
We have two publicly accessible mailing lists for TokuDB:
- firstname.lastname@example.org is for general and support related questions about the use of TokuDB.
- email@example.com is for discussion of the development of TokuDB.
