RocksDB v3.13.0 Release Notes

Release Date: 2015-08-06 // over 6 years ago
  • ๐Ÿ†• New Features

    • โช RollbackToSavePoint() in WriteBatch/WriteBatchWithIndex
    • Add NewCompactOnDeletionCollectorFactory() in utilities/table_properties_collectors, which allows rocksdb to mark a SST file as need-compaction when it observes at least D deletion entries in any N consecutive entries in that SST file. Note that this feature depends on an experimental NeedCompact() API --- the result of this API will not persist after DB restart.
    • โฑ Add DBOptions::delete_scheduler. Use NewDeleteScheduler() in include/rocksdb/delete_scheduler.h to create a DeleteScheduler that can be shared among multiple RocksDB instances to control the file deletion rate of SST files that exist in the first db_path.

    Public API Changes

    • Deprecated WriteOptions::timeout_hint_us. We no longer support write timeout. If you really need this option, talk to us and we might consider returning it.
    • Deprecated purge_redundant_kvs_while_flush option.
    • โœ‚ Removed BackupEngine::NewBackupEngine() and NewReadOnlyBackupEngine() that were deprecated in RocksDB 3.8. Please use BackupEngine::Open() instead.
    • ๐Ÿ—„ Deprecated Compaction Filter V2. We are not aware of any existing use-cases. If you use this filter, your compile will break with RocksDB 3.13. Please let us know if you use it and we'll put it back in RocksDB 3.14.
    • Env::FileExists now returns a Status instead of a boolean
    • โž• Add statistics::getHistogramString() to print detailed distribution of a histogram metric.
    • Add DBOptions::skip_stats_update_on_db_open. When it is on, DB::Open() will run faster as it skips the random reads required for loading necessary stats from SST files to optimize compaction.
