In a MySQL 5.7 master-slave setup that uses the default semisynchronous replication setting for rpl_semi_sync_master_wait_point, a crash of the master and failover to the slave is considered to be lossless. However, when the crashed master comes back, you may find that it has transactions that are not present in the current master (which was previously a slave). This behavior may be puzzling, given that semisynchronous replication is supposed to be lossless, but this is actually an expected behavior in MySQL. Why exactly this happens is explained in full detail in the …[Read more]

This release fixes a rare crash as well as a regression bug introduced in 13.1.0.
–Fixed a regression bug introduced in 13.1.0, an error was returned on adding or editing the data in the ‘Result’ tab. The same steps also caused SQLyog to crash sometimes. This is fixed now.
Although only available as a Release Candidate, MySQL 8 is already proving itself to be a huge leap forward in many regards. Error logging is no exception. The MySQL development team just announced that they have redesigned the error logging subsystem to use a new component architecture.
The redesign will allow the filtering of log events, as well as the routing of error log output to multiple destinations, via the enabling of multiple sink components. This will make it possible to send error log events to third-party systems for additional formatting and analysis.
In today’s blog, we’ll explore how to employ MySQL 8’s component-based error logging to achieve a variety of logging configurations. Note that all this is specific for MySQL 8 and is not available in earlier versions and also not in MariaDB. However, MariaDB has an option to write the error log to the system “syslog” on systemd-based Linux variants – …[Read more]

Although there is no official software release for MySQL 8.0 as of yet, most insiders believe that it’s likely to arrive sometime in 2018.

New Database Roles
A role is a named collection of privileges that define what a user can and cannot do within a database. Roles play a vital part of database security by limiting who can connect to the server, access the database, or even access individual database objects and data.
Although prior to version 8, MySQL did provide a set of Privileges and Administrative Roles, the up-coming release will also support a set of flexible and properly …[Read more]
