MySQL “No space left on device from storage engine”

We have planned for archiving the data to improve the DB performance and to reclaim the space. We were evaluating Compression in InnoDB and TokuDB. To find out the best compression method. We started benchmarking the compression ratio between InnoDB and TokuDB.

Everything goes well for some time, but after a few hours got an error message that can’t able to insert the data into the TokuDB table due to storage being full. It is so strange and the host has enough free space.

Table structure:-

mysql> show create table mydbops.tokudb\G
*************************** 1. row ***************************
       Table: tokudb
Create Table: CREATE TABLE `tokudb` (
  `Name` longtext,
  `Image` blob
) ENGINE=TokuDB DEFAULT CHARSET=utf8mb4 COLLATE=utf8mb4_0900_ai_ci
1 row in set (2.18 sec)

mysql> show create table mydbops.innodb\G
*************************** 1. row …

Handling case sensitive column in pt-archiver

To copy the data of the particular column of the table to another table/server, We have an option to export the data as CSV and import the data back to a different table. But when the table size is large and we need to copy the data only for the required data to the target table will cause the load in the server since the table scanning is huge.

To overcome this, we have the pt-archiver copy the data from the source table to the destination as a whole or only for required columns. And also we can do this in a controlled manner as well. So there will be no performance impact even on the production time.

Source table structure :

mysql> show create table source\G
*************************** 1. row ***************************
       Table: source
Create Table: CREATE TABLE `source` (
  `id` int unsigned NOT NULL …

If you’re thinking to yourself, “It’s an automatic update, so why should I care?” the answer is no.

Whilst, the upgrade seems to be automatic but sometimes the aftermath is catastrophic. Listed below are the significant impact which few organization face after the automatic upgrade:

After downloading and installing MySQL 8.0.24 yesterday, I opened a command shell. In the command shell, I could access the MySQL Shell (mysqlsh.exe) but not the MySQL Client (mysql.exe). Typing in the following:


It returned:

'mysql' is not recognized as an internal or external command,
operable program or batch file.

The MySQL Client (mysql.exe) was installed because MySQL Workbench relies on it. However, the MySQL Microsoft Software Installer (MSI) does not put the mysql.exe file’s directory in the common Windows %PATH% environment variable. You can find the required %PATH% directory variable by opening the File Manager and searching for the mysql.exe file.

You should return several directories and programs but the directory you want is:

C:\Program …

How to migrate your data from the MySQL Database Service (MDS) to MDS High Availability

On March 31st, 2021, MySQL introduced a new MySQL Database Service (MDS) option named MDS High Availability (MDS H/A).

“The High Availability option enables applications to meet higher uptime requirements and zero data loss tolerance. When you select the High Availability option, a MySQL DB System with three instances is provisioned across different availability or fault domains. The data is replicated among the instances using a Paxos-based consensus protocol implemented by the MySQL Group Replication technology. Your application connects to a single endpoint to read and write data to the database. In case of failure, the MySQL Database Service will automatically failover within minutes to a secondary instance without data loss and without requiring to reconfigure the application. See the documentation to learn more about MySQL Database Service High Availability.” From: …
