What stopped MySQL? Tracing back signals sent to MySQL
+1 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Have you ever had a case where you needed to find a process which sent a HUP/KILL/TERM or other signal to your database? Let me rephrase. Did you ever have to find which process messed up your night? If so, you might want to read on. I’m going to tell you how you can find it.

Granted, on small and/or meticulously managed systems tracking down the culprit is probably not a big deal. You can likely identify your process simply by checking what processes have enough privileges to send mysqld a HUP/KILL/TERM signal. However, frequently we see cases where this may not work or the …

Taxonomy upgrade extras: partitionrenameDDL

Before I forget it and have to search again here a short note about how to rename a MySQL Partition:

My dream:

ALTER TABLE history RENAME PARTITION p2015_kw10 INTO p2015_kw09;

In reality:

PARTITION p2015_kw09 VALUES LESS THAN (UNIX_TIMESTAMP('2015-03-02 00:00:00'))

The design of the SCAN algorithm within one LDM instance
Employee +1 Vote Up -1Vote Down

As part of optimising scan execution by about 50% in MySQL Cluster 7.4
we made an effort to also write down a description of the scan protocol
locally within the LDM threads. This is documented in the source code of
MySQL Cluster 7.4 and here is an excerpt from the source code.

DBLQH controls the execution of scans on tables on behalf of DBTC and
DBSPJ. Here follows a signal overview of how a scan is performed within
one LDM instance. For a description of the global scan protocol
see DbtcMain.cpp as a comment before execSCAN_TABREQ.

DBLQH only controls execution of a …

Handling hierarchy and travesing Social networks in MySQL with OQGraph
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

From time to time we detect query patterns that are not well fitted to the BTree+ structures provided by InnoDB. One such situation is when you need to traverse a hierarchy (tree) or graph structure with many nodes. Specialist databases exist for this such as Neo4J. However there exists a simple solution in the form of  OQGraph which is distributed with MariaDB and is documented …

This is the 1st beta, and 4th overall, release of MariaDB 10.1, so there are a lot of new changes, functionalities added, defaults changed, and many bugs fixed (I counted 420 – 117 in 10.1.2 & 637 in 10.1.1, fwiw).

+1 Vote Up -0Vote Down

MySQL 5.5.42 was recently released (it is the latest MySQL 5.5, is GA), and is available for download here:

This release, similar to the last 5.5 release, is mostly uneventful.

There were only 3 “Functionality Added or Changed” bugs this time, all related to SSL, and only 9 bugs overall fixed.

Out of the 9 bugs, there were 2 InnoDB bugs, and 1 replication bug, all of which seemed rather minor or obscure. Here are the ones worth noting:

  • Support for the SSL 2.0 and SSL 3.0 protocols has …

+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

The CVE-2015-0204 FREAK SSL vulnerability abuses intentionally weak “EXPORT” ciphers which could be used to perform a transparent Man In The Middle attack. (We seem to be continually bombarded with not only SSL vulnerabilities but the need to name vulnerabilities with increasing odd names.)

Is your server vulnerable?

This can be tested using the following GIST

If the result is 0; the server is not providing the EXPORT cipher; and as such is not vulnerable.

Is your client vulnerable? …
