Partitioning Limitations

The following limitations apply to partitioning in MariaDB:

  • Currently, queries are never parallelized, even when they involve multiple partitions.
  • A table can only be partitioned if the storage engine supports partitioning.
  • All partitions must use the same storage engine. For a workaround, see Using CONNECT - Partitioning and Sharding.
  • A partitioned table cannot contain, or be referenced by, foreign keys.
  • The query cache is not aware of partitioning and partition pruning. Modifying a partition will invalidate the entries related to the whole table.
