Fun with Bugs #96 - On MySQL Bug Reports I am Subscribed to, Part XXX

My weekdays are still busy even during this lockdown period, but weekend is a perfect time for yet another blog post about MySQL bugs I considered interesting. Very few followers read my posts on other topics anyway, especially if they have the "M....DB" word...

So, here is a new list of optimizer, replication, InnoDB and few other bugs in GA versions of MySQL that I've subscribed to since the end of February, 2020:

  • Bug #98675 - "LIMIT clause in derived table garbles EXPLAIN Note". It's not a big deal and in specific case presented by

Fun with Bugs #95 - On MySQL Bug Reports I am Subscribed to, Part XXIX

With conferences cancelled or postponed and people forced to stay at home due to COVID-19 wide spreading, what can be better than to give my readers a new list of MySQL bugs to check? Useful reading should help! So today I continue my previous post with a quick review of bugs I've subscribed to in February, 2020, while things were still going as usual for most of us...

Here is the list of InnoDB, replication, optimizer and some other bugs to note while working with recent MySQL 5.7.x and 8.0.19 releases:

  • Bug #98473 - "group replication will be block after lock table". This problem report by

Fun with Bugs #94 - On MySQL Bug Reports I am Subscribed to, Part XXVIII

I may get a chance to speak about proper bugs processing for open source projects later this year, so I have to keep reviewing recent MySQL bugs to be ready for that. In my previous post in this series I listed some interesting MySQL bug reports created in December, 2019. Time to move on to January, 2020! Belated Happy New Year of cool MySQL Bugs!

As usual I mostly care about InnoDB, replication and optimizer bugs and explicitly mention bug reporter by name and give link to his other active reports (if any). I also pick up examples of proper (or improper) reporter and Oracle engineers attitudes. Here is the list:

  • Bug #98103 - "unexpected behavior while logging an aborted query in the slow query log".  …

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 #79 - On MySQL Bug Reports I am Subscribed to, Part XV

More than 3 weeks passed since my previous review of public MySQL bug reports I am subscribed to, so it's time to present some of the bugs I've considered interesting in January, 2019.

As usual, I'll review them starting from the oldest and try to summarize my feelings about these bugs at the end of this post. Here they are:

  • Bug #93806 - "Document error about ON DUPLICATE KEY UPDATE". Years pass, but fine MySQL manual still does not explain some cases of InnoDB locking properly. Xiaobin Lin found yet another case that it does not explain properly. Or, maybe, the manual is correct and the problem in …

Fun with Bugs #78 - On Some Public Bugs Fixed in MySQL 5.7.25

Today I'd like to continue my tradition of ignoring MySQL 8 (after all, I can not even build 8.0.14 any more on my Ubuntu 14.04, it's not supported suddenly because of old gcc version) and, of all MySQL server versions released by Oracle this week, concentrate on bugs reported in public bugs database and fixed in the latest minor release of MySQL 5.7 branch, 5.7.25.

This time there is only one InnoDB community-reported bug fixed, Buig #87423 - "os0file.cc assertion failed 'offset > 0' in os_file_io_complete", from Vasily Nemkov. See also it's duplicate, …

Fun with Bugs #71 - On Some Public Bugs Fixed in MySQL 5.7.24

Oracle released many new MySQL versions back on Monday, but I had no time during this very busy week to check anything related (besides the fact that MySQL 8.0.13 can be complied from source on my Fedora 27 box). I am sure you've read a lot about MySQL 8.0.13 elsewhere already, even patches contributed by Community are already presented in a separate post by Jesper Krogh.

I am still mostly interested in MySQL 5.7. So, here is my typical quick review of some selected bugs reported in public by MySQL Community users and fixed in MySQL …

On MySQL XA Transactions

One of the features I missed in my blog post on problematic MySQL features back in July is XA transactions. Probably I was too much in a hurry, as this feature is known to be somewhat buggy, limited and not widely used outside of Java applications. My first related feature request, Bug #40445 - "Provide C functions library implementing X/OPEN XA interface for Bea Tuxedo", was created almost 10 years ago, based on the issue from one of MySQL/Sun customers of that time. I remember some …

On MySQL Replication Bugs

While writing about problematic Oracle MySQL features previously I concentrated mostly on InnoDB problems that I have to fight with really often and deliberately skipped replication from even the preliminary list of features to study in details for that blog post. First of all, I mostly work with MariaDB users now, and implementation of many replication features in MariaDB is notably different already (and has its own list of known problems). But this happened also because (asynchronous) replication plays a key role in most MySQL environments and deserves a detailed study in a separate post.

Fun with Bugs #70 - On MySQL Bug Reports I am Subscribed to, Part VIII

More than 2 months passed since my previous review of active MySQL bug reports I am subscribed to, so it's time to describe what I was interested in this summer.

Let's start with few bug reports that really surprised me:

  • Bug #91893 - "LOAD DATA INFILE throws error with NOT NULL column defined via SET". The bug was reported yesterday and seem to be about a regression in MySQL 8.0.12 vs older versions. At least I have no problem to use such a way to generate columns for LOAD DATA with MariaDB 10.3.7.
  • Bug #91847 - "Assertion `thread_ids.empty()' failed.". As usual, Roel Van de Paar
