More than 3 months after 5.7.18 we' ve got MySQL 5.7.19 released
recently. This is my quick review of the release notes with interesting fixed bug
(reported in public) highlighted in the areas I am usually
Let's start with InnoDB. The following bug fixes attracted my attention:
- Bug #85043 is still private. You know how much I hate those. At least we can see it was about the fact that "The server allocated memory unnecessarily for an operation that rebuilt the table." Let's hope this is no longer the case.
- Bug …

In our last blog poll, we looked at what OS you use for your production database. Now we would like to see what you use for your development database.
As databases grow to meet more challenges and expanding application demands, they must try and get the maximum amount of performance out of available resources. How they work with an operating system can affect many variables, and help or hinder performance. The operating system you use for your database can impact consumable choices (such as hardware and memory). The operating system you use can also impact your choice of database engine as well (or vice versa).
When new projects, new applications or services or testing new architecture …[Read more]

So far in this series I had written only/mostly about MySQL
server bugs. Does it mean that there are no unique or interesting
bugs in other MySQL-related software or MySQL forks and projects
that use MySQL code?
Surely no, it doesn't. So, today I'd like to present a short list of currently active (that is, new or probably not yet resolved) bugs that I had reported for Percona's software at Launchpad over the years I use it. The list is based on this link, but I excluded minor reports and those that probably are just forgotten, while the problem is fixed long time ago.
Let me start with bugs in XtraBackup, the tool that plays a key role in most MySQL environments that are not using Oracle's Enterprise …

Join Percona’s Chief Evangelist, Colin Charles as he presents Securing Your MySQL/MariaDB Data on Tuesday, July 11, 2017 at 7:00 am PDT / 10:00 am EDT (UTC-7).
This webinar will discuss the features of MySQL/MariaDB that when enabled and used improve the default usage of MySQL. Many cloud-based applications fail to:
- Use appropriate filesystem permissions
- Employ TLS/SSL for connections
- Require TLS/SSL with MySQL replication
- Use external authentication plugins (LDAP, PAM, Kerberos)
- Encrypt all your data at rest …
This week in Support was busy enough for me. Among other things I had to study all possible reasons (other than obvious query cache impact) for queries hanging in "query end" status and noted Bug #80652 related to binlog group commit and fixed in MySQL 5.7.17+ and 8.0.1+ only. The case I had to review was related to Galera though, and I suggest you to note that "query end" may be related to Galera replication stall. Studying this path further soon brought lp:1197771 - "Cluster stalls while distributing transaction" to my attention again, so I asked about proper status for it on Facebook. As it happens way too often recently, I've got few 'Likes" but no further comments, neither …[Read more]
