Fun with Bugs #90 - On MySQL Bug Reports I am Subscribed to, Part XXIV

Previous post in this series was published 3 months ago and the last Bug #96340 from it is already closed as fixed in upcoming MySQL 8.0.19. I've picked up 50+ more bugs to follow since that time, so I think I should send quick status update about interesting public MySQL bug reports that are still active.

As usual I concentrate mostly on InnoDB, replication and optimizer bugs. Here is the list, starting from the oldest:

  • Bug #96374  - "binlog rotation deadlock when innodb concurrency limit setted". This bug was reported by …

Fun with Bugs #89 - On MySQL Bug Reports I am Subscribed to, Part XXIII

I have to celebrate the anniversary of my last day in Oracle (that was 7 years ago!) somehow, and I think writing yet another blog post about Oracle MySQL bugs is a good way to do this. I am actually surprised (and happy) that public bugs database is still alive, maintained and considered important in Oracle, and I know who in Oracle was working hard all these years for this to happen!

In my previous post in this series I've stopped on Bug #95954 and had not completed review of interesting MySQL bug reports that I've subscribed to in June 2019. So, below I start with the next bug in my list, complete review for June and cover some bugs reported in July. There were many.

Fun with Bugs #88 - On MySQL Bug Reports I am Subscribed to, Part XXII

It's Saturday night. I have a week of vacation ahead that I am going to spend at home, working on things I usually do not have time for. I already did something useful (created a couple of test cases for MariaDB bugs here and there, among other things), so why not to get some fun and continue my previous review of recent interesting MySQL bug report...

So, here is the list of 15 more MySQL community bug reports that I've subscribed to back in May and June 2019:

  • Bug #95491 - "The unused wake up in simulator AIO of function reserve_slot". I am impressed by …

Fun with Bugs #87 - On MySQL Bug Reports I am Subscribed to, Part XXI

After a 3 months long break I'd like to continue reviewing MySQL bug reports that I am subscribed to. This issue is devoted to bug reports I've considered interesting to follow in May, 2019:

  • Bug #95215 - "Memory lifetime of variables between check and update incorrectly managed". As demonstrated by Manuel Ung, there is a problem with all InnoDB MYSQL_SYSVAR_STR variables that can be dynamically updated. Valgrind allows to highlight it.
  • Bug #95218 - "Virtual generated column altered …

Fun with Bugs #86 - On Some Public Bugs Fixed in MySQL 5.7.27

This week new minor releases of MySQL server were announced. Of them all I am mostly interested in MySQL 5.7.27. I plan to concentrate on InnoDB, replication and optimizer bugs reported in public MySQL bugs database and fixed in MySQL 5.7.27. As usual I name bug reporters explicitly and give links to their remaining currently active bug reports, if any.

Let me start with InnoDB bug fixes:

  • Bug #94699 - "Mysql deadlock and bugcheck on aarch64 under stress test". This bug report with a fix for insufficient memory barriers in the rw-lock implementation was contributed by Cai Yibo.
  • Bug #93708 - "Page Cleaner will sleep for long …

MySQL Support Engineer's Chronicles, Issue #10

As promised, I am trying to write one blog post in this series per week. So, even though writing about InnoDB row formats took a lot of time and efforts this weekend, I still plan to summarize my findings, questions, discussions, bugs and links I've collected over this week.

I've shared two links this week on Facebook that got a lot of comments (unlike links to my typical blog posts). The first one was to Marko Mäkelä's blog post at MariaDB.com, "

Fun with Bugs #85 - On MySQL Bug Reports I am Subscribed to, Part XX

We have a public holiday here today and it's raining outside for a third day in a row already, so I hardly have anything better to do than writing yet another review of public MySQL bug reports that I've subscribed to recently.

Not sure if these reviews are really considered useful by anyone but few of my readers, but I am still going to try in a hope to end up with some useful conclusions. Last time I've stopped on Bug #94903, so let me continue with the next bug in my list:

Fun with Bugs #84 - On Some Public Bugs Fixed in MySQL 5.7.26

Oracle released minor MySQL Server versions in all supported branches on April 25, 2019. MySQL 5.7.26 is just one of them, but recently I prefer to ignore MySQL 8 releases (after checking that I can build them from source code at least somewhere, even if it takes 18G+ of disk space and that they work in basic tests), as there are more chances for MySQL 5.7 bug fixes to affect me (and customers I care about) directly.

So, in this yet another boring blog post (that would never be a reason for any award) I plan to concentrate …

Fun with Bugs #83 - On MySQL Bug Reports I am Subscribed to, Part XIX

I have not much yet to say on a popular topic of upgrading everything to MySQL 8, so let me just continue reviewing public MySQL bug reports that I've subscribed to recently. After my previous post at least one bug, Bug #94747, got enough comments and clarifications (up to specific commit that introduced this regression pointed out by Daniel Black!) to have it re-classified and verified as InnoDB code bug. So, I see good reasons to continue attracting wide public attention …

Fun with Bugs #82 - On MySQL Bug Reports I am Subscribed to, Part XVIII

I've got few comments to my post on references to MariaDB in MySQL bug reports (not in the blog, but via social media and in personal messages), and all but one comments from current and former colleagues whose opinion I value a lot confirmed that this really looks like a kind of attempt to advertise MariaDB. So, from now on I'll try to keep my findings on how tests shared by MySQL bug reporters work in MariaDB for myself, MariaDB JIRA and this blog (where I can and will advertise whatever makes sense to me), and avoid adding them to MySQL bug reports.

That said, I still think that it's normal to share links to MariaDB bug reports that add something useful (like patches, …
