I just want to share about a strange behavior of one of our MySQL server yesterday.
This server is a 5.1.50 MySQL server on debian 4.0 (Yes, I know…)
When a “mysqld got signal 6” error occurred yesterday, the MySQL server crashed and didn’t want to restart.
Then, I found these informations in the error log file :
/usr/local/mysql/bin/mysqld: File '*** glibc detected *** malloc():memory corruption: 0x00002aac2d5ab460 ***' not found (Errcode: 2) 120306 17:19:47 [ERROR] Failed to open log (file '*** glibc detected *** malloc():memory corruption: 0x00002aac2d5ab460 ***', errno 2) 120306 17:19:47 [ERROR] Could not open log file 120306 17:19:47 [ERROR] Can't init tc log 120306 17:19:47 [ERROR] Aborting
