Obtaining MySQL NDB Cluster 7.3.  MySQL NDB Cluster 7.3 source code and binaries can be obtained from

For an overview of changes made in MySQL NDB Cluster 7.3, see What is New in NDB Cluster 7.3.

This release also incorporates all bug fixes and changes made in previous NDB Cluster releases, as well as all bug fixes and feature changes which were added in mainline MySQL 5.6 through MySQL 5.6.39 (see Changes in MySQL 5.6.39 (2018-01-15, General Availability)).

Bugs Fixed

  • NDB Replication: On an SQL node not being used for a replication channel with sql_log_bin=0 it was possible after creating and populating an NDB table for a table map event to be written to the binary log for the created table with no corresponding row events. This led to problems when this log was later used by a slave cluster replicating from the mysqld where this table was created.

    Fixed this by adding support for maintaining a cumulative any_value bitmap for global checkpoint event operations that represents bits set consistently for all rows of a specific table in a given epoch, and by adding a check to determine whether all operations (rows) for a specific table are all marked as NOLOGGING, to prevent the addition of this table to the Table_map held by the binlog injector.

    As part of this fix, the NDB API adds a new getNextEventOpInEpoch3() method which provides information about any AnyValue received by making it possible to retrieve the cumulative any_value bitmap. (Bug #26333981)

  • A query against the INFORMATION_SCHEMA.FILES table returned no results when it included an ORDER BY clause. (Bug #26877788)

  • Following TRUNCATE TABLE on an NDB table, its AUTO_INCREMENT ID was not reset on an SQL node not performing binary logging. (Bug #14845851)

  • The NDBFS block's OM_SYNC flag is intended to make sure that all FSWRITEREQ signals used for a given file are synchronized, but was ignored by platforms that do not support O_SYNC, meaning that this feature did not behave properly on those platforms. Now the synchronization flag is used on those platforms that do not support O_SYNC. (Bug #76975, Bug #21049554)
