Installation Installing Percona Distribution for MySQL

Percona Distribution for MySQL is a single solution with the most critical enterprise components from the MySQL open source community, designed and tested to work together.

Percona Distribution for MySQL provides two deployment variants: one is based on Percona Server for MySQL and another one is based on Percona XtraDB Cluster.

This release of Percona Distribution for MySQL is focused on the Percona XtraDB Cluster-based deployment variant. It is based on Percona XtraDB Cluster 8.0.30-22

Release highlights

The following lists a number of the bug fixes for MySQL 8.0.30, provided by Oracle, and included in Percona XtraDB Cluster and Percona Distribution for MySQL:

  • Supports Generated Invisible Primary Keys(GIPK). This feature automatically adds a primary key to InnoDB tables without a primary key. The generated key is always named my_row_id. The GIPK feature is not enabled by default. Enable the feature by setting sql_generate_invisible_primary_key to ON.

  • The InnoDB_doublewrite system has two new settings:

  • DETECT_ONLY. This setting allows only metadata to be written to the doublewrite buffer. Database page content is not written to the buffer. Recovery does not use the buffer to fix incomplete page writes. Use this setting only when you need to detect incomplete page writes.

  • DETECT_AND_RECOVER. This setting is equivalent to the current ON setting. The doublewrite buffer is enabled. Database page content is written to the buffer and the buffer is accessed to fix incomplete page writes during recovery.

  • The --skip_host_cache server option is deprecated and will be removed in a future release. Use SET GLOBAL host_cache_size= 0 or set host_cache_size = 0.
