MariaDB 10.0.5 storage engines – check the Linux packages
+3 Vote Up -1 Vote Down

Today before Ivan’s tutorial, he told me that in the 10.0.5 virtual machine images he created, he couldn’t find the Cassandra storage engine. I told him it had to be installed separately, and this is true – you have to install some engines separately!

When you do a yum install MariaDB-server MariaDB-client like the installation instructions tell you to do, you don’t get all storage engines (so running SHOW ENGINES might have you wondering what happened to a bunch of engines). This can easily be seen by doing a yum search MariaDB. On a CentOS 6.4 server with the MariaDB 10.0 repository configured, you should see the following:

MariaDB-cassandra-engine.x86_64 : MariaDB: a very fast and robust SQL database server
MariaDB-client.x86_64 : MariaDB: a very fast and robust SQL database server
MariaDB-common.x86_64 : MariaDB: a very fast and robust SQL database server
MariaDB-compat.x86_64 : MariaDB: a very fast and robust SQL database server
MariaDB-connect-engine.x86_64 : MariaDB: a very fast and robust SQL database server
MariaDB-devel.x86_64 : MariaDB: a very fast and robust SQL database server
MariaDB-server.x86_64 : MariaDB: a very fast and robust SQL database server
MariaDB-shared.x86_64 : MariaDB: a very fast and robust SQL database server
MariaDB-test.x86_64 : MariaDB: a very fast and robust SQL database server

So to get Cassandra or CONNECT engine support, don’t forget to install MariaDB-cassandra-engine and MariaDB-connect-engine.

Once you do that, don’t forget to actually load the engines – for example you do something like INSTALL SONAME 'ha_spider.so';.

In fact, why not check out what plugins exist in /usr/lib64/mysql/plugin? You can also see this from the MariaDB monitor: SHOW PLUGINS SONAME;. This shows active and non-installed plugins as well. Read the documentation for SHOW PLUGINS SONAME.
