InnoDB exhibited thread thrashing with more
than 50 concurrent connections under an update-intensive
workload. (Bug #22868)
InnoDB showed substandard performance with
multiple queries running concurrently. (Bug #15815)
User-defined variables could consume excess memory, leading to
a crash caused by the exhaustion of resources available to the
MEMORY storage engine, due to the fact that
this engine is used by MySQL for variable storage and
intermediate results of
GROUP BY queries.
SET had been used, such a condition
could instead give rise to the misleading error message
You may only use constant expressions with
SET, rather than Out of memory (Needed
NNNNNN bytes). (Bug #23443)
