MariaDB Server on macOS

Does it make sense to even try?


Current MariaDB Server GA versions are formally not supported on macOS 10.x and 11.y. But it;s relatively easy to set up the environment and build it from current 10.2 - 10.7 GitHub sources, with few minor issues to resolve in the process depending on maxOS and major server version used. This talk is a summary of my related experience, with a quick review of related fixed and open bugs, as well as some unique features like DTrace support that one may benefit from on macOS.

Current MariaDB Server GA versions are formally not supported (and probably not even regularly built or tested) on macOS 10.x and 11.y. But it's relatively easy to set up the environment and build MariaDB Server from current 10.2 - 10.7 GitHub sources, with few minor issues to resolve in the process, depending on maxOS and major server version used.

This talk is a summary of my related experience on 10.13 High Sierra that I had a chance to work on recently, with additional quick review of related fixed and open bugs, as well as some unique features like DTrace support that one may benefit from on macOS. Actually, studying DTrace in context of MariaDB Server troubleshooting and performance tuning was one of the goals why I started to use macOS again.
