Since MariaDB 10.4 is still in development, information on this page may change rapidly.

The following is a comparison of variables that either appear only in MariaDB 10.4 or MySQL 8.0, or have different default settings in MariaDB 10.4, and MySQL 8.0. The current development version of MariaDB 10.4 and MySQL 8.0.11, with only default plugins enabled, were used for the comparison.

The most notable differences are that MariaDB includes, by default, the Aria storage engine (resulting in extra memory allocation), Galera Cluster, and has a different thread pool implementation. For this reason, a default implementation of MariaDB 10.4 will use more memory than MySQL 8.0. MariaDB 10.4 and MySQL 8.0 also have different GTID implementations.

MariaDB's extra memory usage can be handled with the following rules of thumb:
