@eva2000 the latest version of MariaDB went live today, and added innodb_buffer_pool_dump_pct For details, see note in changelog which includes links to the original Github PR. There's no docs on the MariaDB website, but MySQL has a few. Anyway, might be worth including in your custom my.cnf files. I suspect for most centminmod users who are hosting forums/blogs keeping the pct at 50% or great is probably most convenient--the buffer pools generally aren't larger than 1-2 gb. I know @Xon has mentioned he's running a 1GB buffer pool and he's managing one of the largest forums around.
