Functionality Added or Changed
NDB error codes to MySQL
storage engine error codes has been improved.
An insufficiently descriptive and potentially misleading Error 4006 (Connect failure - out of connection objects...) was produced when either of the following two conditions occurred:
There were no more transaction records in the transaction coordinator
NDB object in the NDB API
was initialized with insufficient parallelism
Separate error messages are now generated for each of these two cases. (Bug #11313)
NDB event was left behind
but the corresponding table was later recreated and received a
new table ID, the event could not be dropped.
The description of the
Attempting to restore a backup made on a cluster host using one endian to a machine using the other endian could cause the cluster to fail. (Bug #29674)
For micro-GCPs, the assignment of “fake” CGI events no longer cause buckets to be sent out of order. Now, when assigning a GCI to a non-GCI event (that is, creating a pseudo-GCI or “fake” CGI), the GCI that is to arrive is always initiated, even if no known GCI exists, which could occur in the event of a node failure. (Bug #30884)
