s3_debug

  • Description: Generates a trace file from libmarias3 on stderr (mysqld.err) for debugging the S3 protocol.
  • Commandline: --s3-debug{=0|1}
  • Scope: Global
  • Dynamic: No
  • Data Type: Boolean
  • Valid Values: 0 or 1
  • Default Value: 0
  • Introduced: MariaDB 10.5.4

  • Scope: Globa;
  • Dynamic: No
  • Data Type: String
  • Default Value: s3.amazonaws.com
  • Introduced: MariaDB 10.5.4

s3_pagecache_age_threshold

  • Description: This characterizes the number of hits a hot block has to be untouched until it is considered aged enough to be downgraded to a warm block. This specifies the percentage ratio of that number of hits to the total number of blocks in the page cache.
  • Commandline: --s3-pagecache-age-threshold=val
  • Scope: Global
  • Dynamic: Yes
  • Data Type: Numeric
  • Default Value: 300
  • Range: 100 to 18446744073709551615

s3_pagecache_buffer_size

  • Description: The size of the buffer used for index blocks for S3 tables. Increase this to get better index handling (for all reads and multiple writes) to as much as you can afford. Size can be adjusted in blocks of 8192.
  • Commandline: --s3-pagecache-buffer-size=val
  • Scope: Global
  • Dynamic: No
  • Data Type: Numeric

  • Data Type: Numeric
  • Default Value: 100
  • Range: 1 to 100
  • Introduced: MariaDB 10.5.4

s3_pagecache_file_hash_size

  • Scope: Global
  • Dynamic: No
  • Data Type: Numeric
  • Default Value: 512
  • Range: 32 to 16384
  • Introduced: MariaDB 10.5.4

s3_protocol_version

  • Description: Protocol used to communication with S3. One of "Auto", "Amazon" or "Original" where "Auto" is the default.

The reason for this variable is that Amazon has changed some parts of the S3 protocol since they originally introduced it but other service providers are still using the original protocol.
  • Commandline: --s3-protocol-version=val
  • Scope: Global
  • Dynamic: Yes
  • Data Type: Enum

  • Scope: Global
  • Dynamic: No
  • Data Type: Boolean
