Functionality Added or Changed
data node configuration parameter. When enabled, this parameter
causes data nodes to handle corrupted tuples in a fail-fast
manner—in other words, whenever the data node detects a
corrupted tuple, it forcibly shuts down if
enabled. For backward compatibility, this parameter is disabled
When adding data nodes online, if the SQL nodes were not restarted before starting the new data nodes, the next query to be executed crashed the SQL node on which it was run. (Bug #13715216, Bug #62847)
References: This bug was introduced by Bug #13117187.
When a failure of multiple data nodes during a local checkpoint (LCP) that took a long time to complete included the node designated as master, any new data nodes attempting to start before all ongoing LCPs were completed later crashed. This was due to the fact that node takeover by the new master cannot be completed until there are no pending local checkpoints. Long-running LCPs such as those which triggered this issue can occur when fragment sizes are sufficiently large (see MySQL Cluster Nodes, Node Groups, Replicas, and Partitions, for more information). Now in such cases, data nodes (other than the new master) are kept from restarting until the takeover is complete. (Bug #13323589)
When deleting from multiple tables using a unique key in the
WHERE condition, the wrong rows were deleted.
UPDATE triggers failed when rows
were changed by deleting from or updating multiple tables.
(Bug #12718336, Bug #61705, Bug #12728221)
A SubscriberNodeIdUndefined error was previously unhandled, resulting in a data node crash, but is now handled by NDB Error 1429, Subscriber node undefined in SubStartReq. (Bug #12598496)
Shutting down a mysqld while under load caused the spurious error messages Opening ndb_binlog_index: killed and Unable to lock table ndb_binlog_index to be written in the cluster log. (Bug #11930428)
--database option generated
table mapping errors when used with
NDB tables, unless the binary log
was generated using
NDB tables having
more columns on the slave than on the master did not always work
correctly when any of the extra columns were
NULL, did not have a default value, or both.
