High InnoDB Log File Usage

leeusleeus ContributorInactive User Role Beginner
I installed an InnoDB database yesterday on a new database server I am working on. Using the latest Percona 5.7 release from the apt repo.

The database contains 2 tables of highly transient data. One table has a high update rate and the other has a high insert & delete rate.

I installed PMM and was shocked at the attached graph!

Thing is I can actually sacrifice some durability of the data as the data is almost immediately invalidated by upstream sensors that feed in the data and I don't need to keep the changes made. Obviously what I don't want to sacrifice is that in the event of a crash being unable to open the tables, I don't mind losing some data though!

My config file is as follows...
# The Percona Server 5.7 configuration file.
# One can use all long options that the program supports.
# Run program with --help to get a list of available options and with
# --print-defaults to see which it would actually understand and use.
# For explanations see
