TokuDB Troubleshooting: Q & A


TokuDBIn this blog, we will provide answers to the Q & A for the TokuDB Troubleshooting webinar.

First, we want to thank everybody for attending the March 22, 2017 webinar. The recording and slides for the webinar are available here. Below is the list of your questions that we were unable to answer during the webinar:

Q: Is it possible to load specific tables or data from the backup?

A: Do you mean the backup created by TokuBackup? No, this is not possible. You have to restore the full backup to a temporary instance, then perform a logical dump/reload of the specific tables you want to restore.

Q: Since it is not recoverable when corruption happens, we have a risk of losing data. Is incremental backup the only option?

A: TokuBackup currently does not support incremental backup options. You can only create a kind of incremental backup if you copy and store the binary logs on a separate server, and then apply them on top of a previous full backup.

The number of MySQL storage engines provide great flexibility for database users, administrators and developers. At the same time, engines add an extra level of complexity when it comes to troubleshooting issues. Before choosing the right troubleshooting tool, you need to answer the following questions (and often others):

  • What part of the server is responsible for my issue?
  • Was a lock set at the server or engine level?
  • Is a standard or engine-specific tool better?
  • Where are the engine-specific options?
  • How to know if an engine-specific command exists?

This webinar will discuss these questions and how to find the right answers across all storage engines in a general sense.

You will also learn:

  • How to troubleshoot issues caused by simple storage engines such as MyISAM or Memory
  • Why Federated is deprecated, and what issues affected that engine
  • How Blackhole can affect replication

. . . and more.

Register for the webinar here.

Note: We will hold a separate webinar specifically for InnoDB.
