Fun with Bugs #19 - waiting for MySQL 5.6.13 and some real fun?
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

I feel like MySQL 5.6.12 was released ages ago, while in reality it was on June 3, less than 2 months ago. No wonder I feel so, after writing several posts about bugs fixed and not fixed in it... Anyway, we still have to wait for MySQL 5.6.13 for a week or even two probably and in the meantime I decided to write new post for this series based on good old idea of making a digest of my recent bugs-related posts at Facebook. I know, it's boring and annoying (same as waiting for the release of 5.6.13).

Let's start with …

Fun with Bugs #16 - read the fine MySQL 5.6 manual...
+1 Vote Up -2Vote Down

MySQL 5.6 has many new features and some of them change usual DBA procedures and formerly well known facts/limitations. It's important to have all these properly documented now, when MySQL 5.6 is GA for 6 months already and is supposed to be widely used in production. So, I think it's time to check what documentation problems still remain.

Here is the list of active bug reports in Server: Docs category for version 5.6, starting with recently reported:

  • Bug #69717 - "DML statements replicated via RBR are NOT logged in the …

Let me present a quick review of new and recently verified MySQL bug reports (mostly in 5.6.12, but not only). Surely I have to start with this request that many my colleagues had already mentioned in their blogs:

Bug #69558 - Put *all* know bugs into the public bug tracking system at We may argue on how and when this should apply to "security" bugs, but automatic bi-directional replication (even if delayed) with Oracle internals bugs database is what I was also asking for since we were forced to use it.

Schema changes – what’s new in MySQL 5.6?
+3 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Among many of the improvements you can enjoy in MySQL 5.6, there is one that addresses a huge operational problem that most DBAs and System Administrators encounter in their life: schema changes.

While it is usually not a problem for small tables or those in early stages of product life cycle, schema changes become a huge pain once your tables get a significant amount of data. Planning for maintenance is becoming more and more difficult, and your worldwide users want the service to be up and running 24/7, while on the other hand, …

Fun with Bugs #14 - InnoDB in MySQL 5.6
+2 Vote Up -1Vote Down

InnoDB improvements in MySQL 5.6 are well known. One of the key reasons to upgrade to MySQL 5.6 for most users is to get the benefits of improved performance, scalability, new monitoring features and fulltext indexes support in InnoDB.

Is there anything to double check before assuming that InnoDB in MySQL 5.6 is just better than any older version for any practical purposes? Let's review known public InnoDB-specific bug reports. Here is my "Top 10" list, as of MySQL 5.6.12, starting with most recent reports:

  1. Bug #69424  - …

Fun with Bugs #11 - Top 10 Optimizer Regression Bugs in MySQL 5.6
+1 Vote Up -0Vote Down

I've got a question from colleague last night on what bugs should users take into account if they plan to upgrade to MySQL 5.6 now. Simple answer is: it depends. If one of the new features or scalability improvements are really important, then bugs in other features or clearly identified problematic use cases may be just ignored or avoided.

But to be on a safe side users should at least check if they are (or may be) affected by a known regression bugs, when new version is slower or produce wrong results or crashes in cases that worked without problems before.

Fun with Bugs #10 - recently reported bugs affecting MySQL 5.6.12
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

MySQL 5.6.12 is available to community for more than a week already, so people started to test and use it. And, no wonder, new bug reports started to appear. Let's concentrate on them in this issue.

I'd like to start with a funny one.  Bug #69413 had scared some of my Facebook readers to death, as we see kernel mutex mentioned clearly in the release notes for 5.6.12. What, kernel mutex comes back again? No, it's just a result of null merge and, probably, …
