    ib_logfile - InnoDB Configuration

    • Article Type: General
    • Product: SFX
    • Product Version: 3

    Description:
    I was taking a look at the recovery options for the MySQL datatbase, and I was confused about the 'ib_logfile' files in /exlibris/sfx_ver/sfx_version_3/data
    I am not familiar with these. Is it possible to disable the InnoDB storage engine or is that being used by the system?

    Resolution:
    SFX does not use InnoDB processes– so any of the innodb logs in /app/mysql/data are not related to SFX.
    If you would like to stop using them, you can add:

    skip-innodb

    to the [mysqld] section of:

    /app/mysql/data/my.cnf

    and then restart mysql using option 1 of our server_admin_util tool.
