Storing BLOBs inside MySQL
The suggested (and recommended) configuration stores all artifact information in MySQL while the artifact binary data is stored on the file system (under
While it is not recommended, it is possible to store BLOBs inside MySQL provided that the typical BLOB size is relatively small. Storing large BLOBs in MySQL can cause memory issues because MySQL buffers BLOBs rather than streaming them (please refer to MySQL Bug #15089) and may result in
OutOfMemory errors with large binaries depending on your JVM heap size.
To store BLOBs in MySQL, you will need to configure the Filestore with the Full-DB and Full-DB-Direct Binary Providers and change
max_allowed_packet to be higher than the maximum artifact size you intend to store in Artifactory.
