As a special service "Fossies" has tried to format the requested text file into HTML format (style: standard

1 Q. What is the FederatedX pluggable storage engine?
3 A. It is a fork of the Federated Storage Engine that Brian Aker and I
4 (Patrick Galbraith) developed originally . It is a storage engine that
5 uses a client connection to a remote MySQL data source as its data
6 source instead of a local file on disk.
8 Q. Why did you fork from Federated?
10 A. To enhance the storage engine independently of the
11 MySQL Server release schedule. Many people have been
12 mentioning their dissatisfaction with the limitations
13 of Federated. I think the engine is a great concept and
14 have a sense of obligation to continue to improve it.
15 There are some patches already that are in dire need
16 of being applied and tested.
18 Q. What do you plan to do with FederatedX?
20 A. Many things need addressing:
22 - Outstanding bugs
23 - How do deal with huge result sets
24 - Pushdown conditions (being able to pass things like LIMIT
25 to the remote connection to keep from returning huge
26 result sets).
27 - Better transactional support
28 - Other connection mechanisms (ODBC, JDBC, native drivers
29 of other RDBMSs)
31 Q. What FederatedX is and is not?
33 A. FederatedX is not yet a complete "federated" solution in
34 the sense that other venders have developed (IBM, etc). It
35 is essentially a networked storage engine. It is my hope
36 to make it a real federated solution.
38 Q. In which MySQL distributions/forks/branches can I find FederateX
40 A. MariaDB (http://www.mariadb.com)
