As recommended in
i replaced the driver of my mysql connections to mariadb
bar<-config::get("foo",file = "../config.yml") con2 <- dbConnect( drv = RMariaDB::MariaDB(), #new driver # drv = RMySQL::MySQL(), old driver username = bar$username, password = bar$pwd, host = bar$host, port = bar$port, dbname = bar$schema )
as a consequence all my scripts with dbWriteTable() ran into poor performance or didn't finish at all
this very detailed github issue report boils down my current situation
do you have similar experiences with a switch to mariaDB driver?
are there some points i am missing (additional installations,..)?
are there any alternatives?
thanks for your understanding
