MySQL 5.6.23 Overview and Highlights

MySQL 5.6.23 was recently released (it is the latest MySQL 5.6, is GA), and is available for download here.

For this release, there is 1 “Security Note”, 3 “Functionality Changed”, and 5 “Compilation Notes”, all benign, but let me address them:

  1. Security Note: The linked OpenSSL library for the MySQL Commercial Server has been updated from version 1.0.1j to version 1.0.1k. Issues fixed in the new version are described at
  2. Functionality Changed: Support for the SSL 2.0 and SSL 3.0 protocols has been disabled because they provide weak encryption. (Bug #19820550, Bug #19921150)
  3. Functionality Changed: yaSSL was upgraded to version …

Resolving Error: master and slave have equal MySQL server UUIDs

If you’ve run into the following error, then there area couple quick fixes:

Errno: 1593
Fatal error: The slave I/O thread stops because master and slave
have equal MySQL server UUIDs; these UUIDs must be different for
replication to work.

To give some background first, starting in MySQL 5.6, the server generates a true UUID in addition to the –server-id supplied by the user. This is ultimately to help with new replication features.

From a under-the-hood view, when starting, the MySQL server automatically obtains a UUID as follows (per the manual):

  1. Attempt to read and use the UUID written in the file data_dir/auto.cnf (where data_dir is the server’s data directory); exit on success.
  2. Otherwise, generate a new UUID and save it to this file, creating the file if necessary.

Not a cool new feature for Master_Host

I was surprised to find on a customer MySQL server this new syntax for Master_host in SHOW SLAVE STATUS.

*************************** 1. row ***************************
               Slave_IO_State: Connecting to master
                  Master_Host: or 10.XXX.XX.XXX
                  Master_User: repl
                  Master_Port: 3306
                Connect_Retry: 60
              Master_Log_File: db1-354215-bin-log.000005
          Read_Master_Log_Pos: 1624
               Relay_Log_File: db2-354214-relay-log.000001

Is this a fancy new Percona Server feature? No. It’s operator error.

We read a little further to find.

             Slave_IO_Running: Connecting

                Last_IO_Errno: 2005
                Last_IO_Error: error connecting to master 'repl@ or 10.XXX.XX.XXX' - retry-time: 60  retries: 86400

Discover MyXplain, another way to learn, search, find and stroll



I’m very glad to announce you that MyXplain is released today.

This project is the result of many weeks of work for my friend Max and I and we are obviously very proud to present it.

Please take a time to browse it and find all the surprises that awaiting you.

We wanted to make an unique place, a gathering place where you can find all you want to know about the most useful MySQL commands.
We started with the explain command because we consider it as one of the most important.
show processlist and show slave status will be the next proposed commands on MyXplain.

The concept is pretty simple, we would like to offer you a new documentation to access all needed …

MySQL: Using CONNECT to Quickly Verify Replication Health

One very helpful use of the technique Sheeri described in Remote connections without leaving the mysql shell is making sure that replication is working properly.

According to the MySQL Reference Manual’s section on SHOW SLAVE STATUS Syntax, it shows information corresponding to the slave thread in the slave server. When replication is broken, however, or not working properly due to network issues between master and slave, this information may not be accurate. This has improved over recent releases, but it’s still not perfect.

The question, then, is: how to be 100% sure (or as close as you can get to 100%) that replication is running fine? The answer, as offered by Sheeri: use CONNECT.

Example …

When SHOW SLAVE STATUS and the error log Disagree

Or, When MySQL Lies!

When I do a show slave status\G, sometimes mysqld will lie to me and give me a wrong Exec_Master_Log_Pos. Let me explain with a situation from last night.

This is the output of show slave status\G from mysql version 5.0.41-community-log:

mysql> show slave status \G
