We recently switched to Percona SQL.
After moving first server, we noticed that it has very optimized configuration out of the box except innodb_file_format is set to “Antelope”.
I believe that barracuda is newer and may be better. But I used to think compression storage will save disk-space at the cost of CPU-cycles.
So which “innodb_file_format” is recommended?
We need to stick to one as we are planning to move more than a dozen setups this weekend.
