Changes in MySQL NDB Cluster 7.5.31 (5.7.43-ndb-7.5.31) (2023-07-18, General Availability)

MySQL NDB Cluster 7.5.31 is a new release of MySQL NDB Cluster 7.5, based on MySQL Server 5.7 and including features in version 7.5 of the NDB storage engine, as well as fixing recently discovered bugs in previous NDB Cluster releases.

Obtaining MySQL NDB Cluster 7.5.  MySQL NDB Cluster 7.5 source code and binaries can be obtained from

For an overview of changes made in MySQL NDB Cluster 7.5, see What is New in NDB Cluster 7.5.

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 5.7 through MySQL 5.7.43 (see Changes in MySQL 5.7.43 (2023-07-18, General Availability)).

Functionality Added or Changed

  • NDB 7.5 is now built with support for OpenSSL 3.0. (WL #15614)

Bugs Fixed

  • Backups using NOWAIT did not start following a restart of the data node. (Bug #35389533)

  • When deferred triggers remained pending for an uncommitted transaction, a subsequent transaction could waste resources performing unnecessary checks for deferred triggers; this could lead to an unplanned shutdown of the data node if the latter transaction had no committable operations.

    This was because, in some cases, the control state was not reinitialized for management objects used by DBTC.

    We fix this by making sure that state initialization is performed for any such object before it is used. (Bug #35256375)

  • A pushdown join between queries featuring very large and possibly overlapping IN() and NOT IN() lists caused SQL nodes to exit unexpectedly. One or more of the IN() (or NOT IN()) operators required in excess of 2500 arguments to trigger this issue. (Bug #35185670, Bug #35293781)

  • The buffers allocated for a key of size MAX_KEY_SIZE were of insufficient size. (Bug #35155005)

  • Some calls made by the ndbcluster handler to push_warning_printf() used severity level ERROR, which caused an assertion in debug builds. This fix changes all such calls to use severity WARNING instead. (Bug #35092279)

  • When a connection between a data node and an API or management node was established but communication was available only from the other node to the data node, the data node considered the other node live, since it was receiving heartbeats, but the other node did not monitor heartbeats and so reported no problems with the connection. This meant that the data node assumed wrongly that the other node was (fully) connected.

    We solve this issue by having the API or management node side begin to monitor data node liveness even before receiving the first REGCONF signal from it; the other node sends a REGREQ signal every 100 milliseconds, and only if it receives no REGCONF from the data node in response within 60 seconds is the node reported as disconnected. (Bug #35031303)

  • The log contained a high volume of messages having the form DICT: index index number stats auto-update requested, logged by the DBDICT block each time it received a report from DBTUX requesting an update. These requests often occur in quick succession during writes to the table, with the additional possibility in this case that duplicate requests for updates to the same index were being logged.

    Now we log such messages just before DBDICT actually performs the calculation. This removes duplicate messages and spaces out messages related to different indexes. Additional debug log messages are also introduced by this fix, to improve visibility of the decisions taken and calculations performed. (Bug #34760437)
