Upgrade mariaDB on frdb1003 to >= 10.2
Closed, ResolvedPublic


There are some features of mariaDB which are not available in our current version, such as window functions (ROW_NUMBER(), RANK(), etc) and CTEs which would be very valuable to have. Would it be possible to upgrade to a newer mariaDB version?

@EYener the newer OS updates should do this. We are trying to get an ETA for that. Most likely some time in Q1.

These functions were added in the 10.2 version of mariadb. When we do the OS upgrades, we will be moving up to version 10.4.

Awesome! Two in one. Thanks!

@EYener We will need to find a time when we can take the host down for the upgrade. I anticipate the upgrade will take up to 45 minutes and then we'll want to make sure all the functionality is present. Given that this DB is used regularly by you and with superset, is there a time that works best for it to be offline for 2-3 hours?

Good question - let me check and get back to you. Thanks @Dwisehaupt

Hi @Dwisehaupt how about 9PM UTC / 5PM Eastern / 2 PM Pactific on Monday? Alternately, the same time on Tuesday or Thursday would be preferable.

9pm UTC on Monday 06/22 works for me. I'll add it to my calendar and get the prep rolling.

Upgrade to buster has completed. MariaDB now running 10.4.13. Verified normal behavior through superset and mysql command line.
