Plastic SCM Mysql Database Config

October 30, 2014 Leave a comment

This is step-by-step to Change Mysql Server Configuration before migrating plastic scm database from MS SQL Server (CE)

  1. Edit the my.cnf file, normally located in /etc or /etc/mysql in Linux, or the c:\Program Files\MySQL\my.ini file in Windows. Add or edit the lines below.
  2. The innodb_buffer_pool_size should be around half of the memory of your server machine. This is the most important value. Note that due to a limitation in MySQL, this value should be maximum 4GB (more details here):
    innodb_buffer_pool_size = 2G
  3. innodb_additional_mem_pool_size should be a 5% of the innodb_buffer_pool_size:
    innodb_additional_mem_pool_size = 100M
  4. Set innodb_log_file_size to 25% of buffer pool size.
    innodb_log_file_size = 500M
  5. innodb_log_buffer_size can be around 2% of the buffer pool size or, at a minimum, 8MB.
    innodb_log_buffer_size = 40M
  6. Also, don’t forget to set the max_allowed_packet to 10MB. This is mandatory for correct Plastic SCM operation:
    max_allowed_packet = 10M
  7. Once these settings are in place, restart the MySQL service.
