When reloading the redo log during a node or system restart, and
greater than or equal to 42, it was possible for metadata to be
read for the wrong file (or files). Thus, the node or nodes
involved could try to reload the wrong set of data.
If the Transaction Coordinator aborted a transaction in the “prepared” state, this could cause a resource leak. (Bug #14208924)
A shortage of scan fragment records in
resulted in a leak of concurrent scan table records and key
DUMP 2303 in the ndb_mgm
client now includes the status of the single fragment scan
record reserved for a local checkpoint.
In some circumstances, transactions could be lost during an online upgrade. (Bug #13834481)
When trying to use ndb_size.pl
to connect to a MySQL server running on a nonstandard port, the
port argument was ignored.
(Bug #13364905, Bug #62635)
Attempting to add both a column and an index on that column in
the same online
statement caused mysqld to fail. Although
this issue affected only the mysqld shipped
with MySQL Cluster, the table named in the
TABLE could use any storage engine for which online
operations are supported.
When an NDB API application called
again after the previous call had returned end-of-file (return
code 1), a transaction object was leaked. Now when this happens,
NDB returns error code 4210 (Ndb sent more info than
length specified); previouslyu in such cases, -1 was
returned. In addition, the extra transaction object associated
with the scan is freed, by returning it to the transaction
coordinator's idle list.
