Bugs Fixed

  • As of this release, the Agent sets sql_mode=NO_AUTO_CREATE_USER in addition to STRICT_TRANS_TABLES and NO_ENGINE_SUBSTITUTION. This is set to prevent repeated occurrences of the following error from MySQL 5.7.x:

    Warning | 3129 | Unsetting sql mode 'NO_AUTO_CREATE_USER' is deprecated. It will be made read-only in a future release.

  • Bug #21127348

    Section 1.1, “Prerequisites” listed SUPER as one of the privileges required by the Oracle Enterprise Manager Agent. SUPER is not required.

  • If a boolean attribute's value was not present, it was reported as False.

    As of this release, if the value is not present, nothing is displayed.

  • No values were retrieved for innodb_max_dirty_pages_pct and innodb_max_dirty_pages_pct_lwm variables on MySQL 5.7.7, or higher. NaN was displayed instead.

  • The Slave Has Been Stopped metric reported that replication had stopped although replication was running normally.
