Arg: relay_log_space_limit is (still) not dynamic !

This will be a short rant: why is relay_log_space_limit still not dynamic ?

This is obviously a rhetorical question.  I see no reason why this MySQL System Variable is not (yet) dynamic.  Obviously, changing the value of this variable could need replication to be stopped (like for slave_parallel_type, slave_parallel_workers and slave_preserve_commit_order), but at least it would not need a MySQL

Another Post on the Percona Community Blog, Bug Activities on Replication Crash Safety, and Percona Live Europe

I published another article on the Percona Community Blog.  This time, it is about Semi-Synchronous Replication.  You can read the post here:

Question about Semi-Synchronous Replication: the Answer with all the Details

I previously wrote about my motivation to publish on the Percona Community Blog.  Things have not changed: I still believe it is a great community initiative that I want to

Question about Semi-Synchronous Replication: the Answer with All the Details

I was recently asked a question by mail about MySQL Lossless Semi-Synchronous Replication. As I think the answer could benefit many people, I am answering it in a blog post. The answer brings us to the internals of transaction committing, of semi-synchronous replication, of MySQL (server) crash recovery, and of storage engine (InnoDB) crash recovery. I am also debunking some misconceptions that I have often seen and heard repeated by many. Let’s start by stating one of those misconceptions.

One of those misconceptions is the following (this is NOT true): semi-synchronous enabled slaves are always the most up-to-date slaves (again, this is NOT true). If you hear it yourself, then please call people out on it to avoid this spreading more. Even if some slaves have semi-synchronous replication disabled (I will use semi-sync for …

A crashing bug in MySQL: the CREATE TABLE of death (more fun with InnoDB Persistent Statistics)

I ended one of my last posts - Fun with InnoDB Persistent Statistics - with a cryptic sentence: there is more to say about this but I will stop here for now.  What I did not share at the time is the existence of a crashing bug somehow related to what I found.  But let's start with some context.

In Bug#86926, I found a way to put more than 64 characters in the field table_name of the

A Mystery with open_files_limit

In this blog, we’ll look at a mystery around setting the open_file_limit variable in MySQL and Percona Server for MySQL.

MySQL Server needs file descriptors to run. It uses them to open new connections, store tables in the cache, create temporary tables to resolve complicated queries and access persistent ones. If mysqld is not able to open new files when needed, it can stop functioning correctly. A common symptom of this issue is error 24: “Too many open files.”

The number of file descriptors

mysqld

 can open simultaneously is defined by the configuration

open_files_limit

 option. You would expect it to work like any other MySQL Server option: set in the configuration file, …
