- The server part of MyRocks cross-engine consistent physical backups has been implemented by introducing rocksdb_disable_file_deletions and rocksdb_create_temporary_checkpoint session variables. These variables are intended to be used by backup tools. Prolonged use or other misuse can have serious side effects to the server instance.
- RocksDB WAL file information can now be seen in the performance_schema.log_status table.
