5.3.8 Defining the System

The [system] section is used for parameters applying to the cluster as a whole. The Name system parameter is used with MySQL Enterprise Monitor; ConfigGenerationNumber and PrimaryMGMNode are not used in production environments. Except when using NDB Cluster with MySQL Enterprise Monitor, is not necessary to have a [system] section in the config.ini file.

Restart types.  Information about the restart types used by the parameter descriptions in this section is shown in the following table:

Table 5.196 NDB Cluster restart types

Symbol Restart Type Description
N Node The parameter can be updated using a rolling restart (see Section 7.5, “Performing a Rolling Restart of an NDB Cluster”)
S System All cluster nodes must be shut down completely, then restarted, to effect a change in this parameter
I Initial Data nodes must be restarted using the --initial option

More information about these parameters can be found in the following list:

  • ConfigGenerationNumber

    Table 5.197 This table provides type and value information for the ConfigGenerationNumber system configuration parameter

    Property Value
