Extended SELECT INTO OUTFILE/DUMPFILE¶
Percona Server for MySQL has extended the
SELECT INTO ... OUTFILE and
to add support for UNIX sockets and named pipes. Before this was implemented
the database would return an error for such files.
This feature allows using
LOAD DATA LOCAL INFILE in combination with
SELECT INTO OUTFILE to quickly load multiple partitions across the network
or in other setups, without having to use an intermediate file that wastes
space and I/O.
Version specific information¶
- 8.0.12-1: The feature was ported from Percona Server for MySQL 5.7.
- MySQL bug: #44835
