Displaying posts with tag: MySQL Patches (reset)

I had this patch for a while where one can get listing of both session and global temporary tables across all sessions. It really helped lot of times to understand the bottlenecks of some of the temporary table issues as MySQL never exposed them in the form of SHOW TABLES.

I also added a new status variable called ‘Created_tmp_heap_to_disk_tables‘, which keeps track of how many memory based temp tables are re-created back to disk based.

I’ve decided after much internal and external debate just to skip it all this year, including the side conferences and other stuff. Why? The reasons are basically:

Making connections more manageable

For the past few weeks off and on, as part of Proven Scaling’s project to improve the MySQL server, I’ve been helping Joel Seligstein to really dig into the MySQL source code and add some features, in preparation for a much bigger feature coming up (more on that at a future date). He has now finished three smaller projects that have been on Proven Scaling’s and my own to-do list for quite some time: SET CONNECTION STATUS status, KILL connection_id WITH QUERY query_id, and SHOW … FOR CONNECTION connection_id.1


This patch adds a new SET CONNECTION STATUS status command, which allows each session to set a status which will be shown in a new …
