In RocksDB 4.3, we added a new set of features that makes managing RocksDB options easier. Specifically:

  • Persisting Options Automatically: Each RocksDB database will now automatically persist its current set of options into an INI file on every successful call of DB::Open(), SetOptions(), and CreateColumnFamily() / DropColumnFamily().

  • Load Options from File: We added LoadLatestOptions() / LoadOptionsFromFile() that enables developers to construct RocksDB options object from an options file.

  • Sanity Check Options: We added CheckOptionsCompatibility that performs compatibility check on two sets of RocksDB options.
