Fun with Bugs #74 - On MySQL Bug Reports I am Subscribed to, Part XI

For some reason the Committee of FOSDEM 2019 MySQL, MariaDB & Friends Devroom of all my talks submitted picked up the one on how to create a useful MySQL bug report, so I have no options but continue to write about MySQL bugs, as long and MySQL Community wants and even prefers to listen and read about them... That's what I do, with pleasure.

Today I'll continue my series of posts about community bug reports I am subscribed to with the review of bugs reported since October 1, 2018, starting from the oldest and skipping those MySQL 8 regression ones I've already commented on:

MySQL 8: Drop Several Stored Events, Procedures, or Functions


Maybe the biggest new feature in MySQL 8 is the new transaction data dictionary that improves the consistency of schema objects among other things. To further protect the data in the data dictionary, the data dictionary tables are hidden and their content only exposed through the Information Schema. (One exception is when you use the debug binary, then it is possible to get direct access to the data dictionary tables. This is not recommended at all on production systems!)

A side effect of the data dictionary tables being hidden is that those that have had a habit of manipulating the tables directly in MySQL 5.7 and earlier (I will not recommend doing that) will no longer be able to do so. Examples of manipulating the tables include …

Using AI and satellite imagery for disaster insights


A framework for using convolutional neural networks (CNNs) on satellite imagery to identify the areas most severely affected by a disaster. This new method has the potential to produce more accurate information in far less time than current manual methods. Ultimately, the goal of this research is to allow rescue workers to quickly identify where aid is needed most, without relying on manually annotated, disaster-specific data sets.


Researchers from Facebook and CrowdAI train models on CNNs to detect human-made features, such as roads. Existing approaches for disaster impact analysis require data sets that can be expensive to produce because they require time-consuming manual annotation (for instance, annotating buildings damaged by fire as a new class) to train on. This new method only uses general road and building data sets. These are readily available and can be scalable to other, …

Database Backup Encryption - Best Practices

Offsite backup storage should be a critical part of any organisation’s disaster recovery plan. The ability to store data in a separate physical location, where it could survive a catastrophic event which destroys all the data in your primary data center, ensures your data survival and continuity of your organisation. A Cloud storage service is quite a good method to store offsite backups. No matter if you are using a cloud provider or if you are just copying data to an external data center, the backup encryption is a must in such cases. In one of our previous blogs, we discussed several methods of encrypting your backups. Today we will focus on some best practices around backup encryption.

Ensure that your secrets are safe …
