    ib_logfile - InnoDB Configuration

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

    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?

    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:


    to the [mysqld] section of:


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