MySQL – Alter table-change datatype of column with foreign key
+1 Vote Up -0Vote Down
Schema alteration is a big headache especially when it has already reached to production and things get worse when the relations are involved. Below is a short example for altering tables having foreign key constraints. SQL for tables used in example: create database temp;use temp; drop table if exists city; drop table if exists country; […]
Simple Query to identify Foreign Key references on Deadlocked Tables
+2 Vote Up -0Vote Down

The other day, I was troubleshooting a deadlock, and I wondered if any of the table’s columns were referenced by any foreign keys (fks) from any other tables in the instance.

Well, this is actually very simple with information_schema (I_S):

SELECT * FROM INFORMATION_SCHEMA.KEY_COLUMN_USAGE
WHERE REFERENCED_TABLE_NAME='parent';

Where `parent` is the name of the table you’re searching for.

Note this query does not restrict on the database, or schema, name, but that could easily be added (or any other number of conditions). Here is an example where I only return the most useful columns (which could be useful for determining said conditions):

SELECT CONSTRAINT_SCHEMA, CONSTRAINT_NAME, TABLE_SCHEMA,
	TABLE_NAME, COLUMN_NAME, REFERENCED_TABLE_SCHEMA,
	REFERENCED_TABLE_NAME, REFERENCED_COLUMN_NAME
FROM INFORMATION_SCHEMA.KEY_COLUMN_USAGE

Advanced InnoDB Deadlock Troubleshooting – What SHOW INNODB STATUS Doesn’t Tell You, and What Diagnostics You Should be Looking At
+5 Vote Up -0Vote Down

One common cause for deadlocks when using InnoDB tables is from the existence of foreign key constraints and the shared locks (S-lock) they acquire on referenced rows.

The reason I want to discuss them though is because they are often a bit tricky to diagnose, especially if you are only looking at the SHOW ENGINE INNODB STATUS output (which might be a bit counter-intuitive since one would expect it to contain this info).

Let me show a deadlock error to illustrate (below is from SHOW ENGINE INNODB STATUS\g):
