Why TokuDB Deprecated ?

hrnskyhrnsky EntrantLegacy User Role Novice
Hello, I've recently updated percona server from 5.7 to 8.0, It's too bad to hear that TokuDB will be deprecated as storage engine. What is the main reason ? Should I change the storage engine to MyRocks ?

    I'm not qualified to speak on behalf of Percona, but this announcement surprised me also. I strongly think Percona does not have the skillset or manpower to finish the remaining open topics from TokuDB or bring it to next level.

    I don't know.
    I am using tokudb for a Time Series Database with 5000Million registers
    Will Rockdb support that ?.

    Lotia I have a similar use case and tried to play with RocksDB. Compared to TokuDB, where a simple "alter table... engine=TokuDB" was all I needed, with RocksDB I encountered problems over problems, to the extend I was even considering diving deep in MySQL and fix TokuDB myself. Have you played with RocksDB until now? If yes, do you have some suggestions regarding good settings for timeseries?
