Table rebuild with alter compression=’none’

As doc states:

To disable page compression, set COMPRESSION=None using ALTER TABLE. Writes to the tablespace that occur after setting COMPRESSION=None no longer use page compression. To uncompress existing pages, you must rebuild the table using OPTIMIZE TABLE after setting COMPRESSION=None.


With regular table there is no table rebuild:

mysql> alter table sbtest4 compression='none';
Query OK, 0 rows affected (0,01 sec)
Records: 0 Duplicates: 0 Warnings: 0

So the rebuild will be on optimize table run.

But if you want table rebuild each time when you run compression=’none’ you can add encryption=’N’ option

How to get rid of orphaned tables in MySQL?

This post is about situation where comments in BUG reports are really valuable in term of learning and getting some internal view of going process.
Let’s take a look at ->

The report is about how you can not drop general tablespace if it was a crash of MySQL instant while running alter statement.

mysql> create tablespace ts1 add datafile '/var/lib/mysql_tablespaces/ts1.ibd' engine=innodb;
Query OK, 0 rows affected (0,02 sec)

Kill -9 process while altering:

mysql> alter table sbtest1 tablespace ts1;
ERROR 2013 (HY000): Lost connection to MySQL server during query

CREATE TABLE `sbtest1` (
`id` int(10) unsigned NOT NULL AUTO_INCREMENT,
`k` int(10) unsigned NOT NULL DEFAULT '0',

How to get confused about buffer pool size allocation?

How it feels when you realize that, something going to be scary in term of question – “Wait, why? how?”
Let’s see:

I am trying to allocate 9G buffer pool size with 64 instances:


From error log it said that:

InnoDB: Initializing buffer pool, total size = 16G, instances = 64, chunk size = 128M

“Wait, why? how?” N1

From select it is also allocated 16G:

mysql> select @@innodb_buffer_pool_size/1024/1024/1024;
| @@innodb_buffer_pool_size/1024/1024/1024 |
| 16.000000000000 |

Just continue to increase pool size:

If you give 17G:

The magical abandoned .ibd files after crash recovery with MySQL 5.7.10

If you are running ‘OPTIMIZE TABLE’ or altering ‘TABLESPACE’ just be careful not to kill MySQL service while running these commands
Here is a test case:
We have a table:

CREATE TABLE `sbtest1` (
`id` int(10) unsigned NOT NULL AUTO_INCREMENT,
`k` int(10) unsigned NOT NULL DEFAULT '0',
`c` char(120) NOT NULL DEFAULT '',
`pad` char(60) NOT NULL DEFAULT '',
KEY `k_1` (`k`)

After a while we want to ‘OPTIMIZE’ this table:

mysql> optimize table sbtest1;
ERROR 2013 (HY000): Lost connection to MySQL server during query

Uups MySQL process was killed/crashed.

[root@ps-5 mysql]# ls -l dbtest/
total 1092792
-rw-r-----. 1 mysql mysql 65 фев 4 03:43 db.opt

How to lose General Tablespace in MySQL 5.7.10

If you have not be careful with General Tablespaces in MySQL 5.7.10, you must be at least from now.
I have reported several bugs related to General Tablespaces for eg.:

* #77814 -> Altering table twice,with same tablespace will increase general tablespace size (verfied)

* #77556 -> Segmentation fault while creating general tablespace in disk full Linux (fixed/closed)

* #77830 -> “ALGORITHM=INPLACE is not supported” no error with tablespace alter (open)

* #80070 -> allocated_size and file_size differ if create general tablespace outside datadir (verified)

OOM killer vs. MySQL 5.7.10 epic results with over-allocating memory

Recently i have figured out that we can over-allocate InnoDB buffer pool size as I have already reported:


So as a result I can start MySQL with 300GB buffer pool size in my 16G laptop.



Started as:

2016-01-05 15:23:58 16211 [Note] InnoDB: Initializing buffer pool, size = 300.0G
2016-01-05 15:24:31 16211 [Note] InnoDB: Completed initialization of buffer pool

If you think that it is not harmful, let’s examine another report:


With MySQL 5.7.10 in my VM on CentOS 7:

I have:

[root@mysql-57 ~]# free -m
total used free shared buff/cache available
Mem: 3428 …

MySQL Group Replication plugin issues with 5.7.8-rc2

Well the new things are cool to test and learn. But it is not possible every time, to have smooth testing process. if you can’t get right software on your hand.

So there are great articles about this new plugin here you can follow all of them: Group Replication Topics

I must say that, plugin available for download as source code and as for Oracle Linux 6 x86_64 from ->

So if you want to try it with MySQL 5.7.8-rc2 on Ubuntu you should compile it with MySQL. But you will not be able to compile due to well known ‘boost’ dependency -> see BUG #78600

UPDATE to BUG 78600:

Getting SIGABRT -> Assertion `is_binlog_empty()’ failed with MySQL 5.7.7-rc

What about inserting data to MySQL 5.7.7-rc-debug with GTID/binary log enabled. It is OK until you hit disk full condition while inserting data. It will crash on the way and likely you will lose MySQL. Error log indicates related problem:

Altering tablespace of table – new in MySQL 5.7

Dear community, maybe you have already tested, there are new added features in MySQL 5.7. See previous post -> About 5.7.7-rc BUGs

“General Tablespace” feature -> From now you can place tables to separate tablespaces. Prior, on our hands there were only “System TableSpace” and “InnoDB file per table” options. Today’s topic is altering table to use this “General Tablespace”.

Our sample table structure:

mysql> show create table t1;

    | Table | Create Table 
    | t1    | CREATE TABLE `t1` (
      `id` int(11) DEFAULT NULL,
      `c1` varchar(85) DEFAULT NULL
    ) /*!50100 TABLESPACE innodb_file_per_table */ ENGINE=InnoDB DEFAULT CHARSET=utf8 

Note that there is a comment about tablespace of our table -> /*!50100 TABLESPACE …
