Description: Please include the Open Query GRAPH computation engine, or OQGRAPH as the engine itself is called, as part of the main MariaDB package. OQGRAPH allows MariaDB to handle hierarchies (tree structures) and complex graphs (nodes having many connections in several directions). This addition makes MariaDB one of the most compelling database management systems available today.

MariaDB officially includes OQGRAPH with the current stable release (e.g., mariadb-10.3.11-linux-systemd-x86_64.tar.gz for systems with systemd, found at It is also part of MariaDB in many other Linux distros. However, the Arch Linux package does not include it.

It requires shared library /usr/lib/mysql/plugin/ (part of the MariaDB source) and (not currently available in the Arch repositories). libJudy is a C library for creating and accessing dynamic arrays. As far as I know, those are the only two files required for OQGRAPH to be functional in MariaDB on Arch.

General information here:

OQGRAPH is available for many versions of MariaDB, including the version currently in the Arch repos.

"You can grab MariaDB 5.2 or higher at, and you can find the source in the oqgraph storage engine plugin directory of the mariadb tree on Launchpad. The oqgraph project on Launchpad tracks the historical implementation for MySQL 5.0, and was used for the newer persistent v3 (in MariaDB 10.0 and above)."

It would be nice to have at least MariaDB version 10.3.3 on Arch. Arch is currently on mariadb 10.1.37-1. The latest stable release is 10.3.11 at this time. See

See for background.
