Bugs Fixed

  • Disk Data: Extremely large inserts into Disk Data tables could lead to data node failure in some circumstances. (Bug #27942)

  • Cluster API: In a multi-operation transaction, a delete operation followed by the insertion of an implicit NULL failed to overwrite an existing value. (Bug #20535)

  • Setting MaxNoOfTables very low and relative to DataMemory caused Out of memory in Ndb Kernel errors when inserting relatively small amounts of data into NDB tables. (Bug #24173)
