is glad to announce the release of Percona Server 5.6.30-76.3 on May 25, 2016. Download the latest version from the Percona web site or the Percona Software Repositories.

Based on MySQL 5.6.30, including all the bug fixes in it, Percona Server 5.6.30-76.3 is the current GA release in the Percona Server 5.6 series. Percona Server is open-source and free – this is the latest release of our enhanced, drop-in replacement for MySQL. Complete details of this release can be found in the 5.6.30-76.3 milestone on Launchpad.

Bugs Fixed:

  • When Read Free Replication was enabled for TokuDB, and there was no explicit primary key for the replicated TokuDB table, there could be duplicated records in the table on update operation. The fix disables Read Free Replication for tables without an explicit primary key and does rows lookup for UPDATE and DELETE binary log events and issues warning. Bug fixed #1536663 (#950).
  • Attempting to execute a non-existing prepared statement with Response Time Distribution plugin enabled could lead to a server crash. Bug fixed #1538019.
  • TokuDB was using using different memory allocators; this was causing safemalloc warnings in debug builds and crashes because memory accounting didn’t add up. Bug fixed #1546538 (#962).
  • Fixed heap allocator/deallocator mismatch in Metrics for scalability measurement. Bug fixed #1581051.
  • Percona Server is now built with system zlib library instead of the older bundled one. Bug fixed #1108016.
  • Reduced the memory overhead per page in the InnoDB buffer pool. The fix was based on Facebook patch #91e979e. Bug fixed #1536693 (upstream #72466).
  • CREATE TABLE ... LIKE ... could create a system table with an unsupported enforced engine. Bug fixed #1540338.
  • Change buffer merge could throttle to 5% of I/O capacity on an idle server. Bug fixed #1547525.
  • Slave_open_temp_tables would fail to decrement on the slave with a disabled binary log if the master was killed. Bug fixed #1567361.
  • The server will now show a more descriptive error message when Percona Server fails with errno == 22 "Invalid argument", if innodb_flush_method was set to ALL_O_DIRECT. Bug fixed #1578604.
  • Killed connection threads could get their sockets closed twice on shutdown. Bug fixed #1580227.
  • AddressSanitizer build with LeakSanitizer enabled was failing at gen_lex_hash invocation. Bug fixed #1580993 (upstream #80014).
  • apt-cache show command for percona-server-client was showing innotop included as part of the package. Bug fixed #1201074.
  • mysql-systemd would fail with PAM authentication and proxies due to a regression introduced when fixing #1534825 in Percona Server 5.6.29-76.2. Bug fixed #1558312.
  • Upgrade logic for figuring if TokuDB upgrade can be performed from the version on disk to the current version was broken due to a regression introduced when fixing bug #684 in Percona Server 5.6.27-75.0. Bug fixed #717.
  • If ALTER TABLE was run while tokudb_auto_analyze variable was enabled it would trigger auto-analysis, which could lead to a server crash if ALTER TABLE DROP KEY was used because it would be operating on the old table/key meta-data. Bug fixed #945.
  • The TokuDB storage engine with tokudb_pk_insert_mode set to 1 is safe to use in all conditions. On INSERT IGNORE or REPLACE INTO, it tests to see if triggers exist on the table, or replication is active with !BINLOG_FORMAT_STMT before it allows the optimization. If either of these conditions is met, then it falls back to the “safe” operation of looking up the target row first. Bug fixed #952.
  • Bug in TokuDB Index Condition Pushdown was causing ORDER BY DESC to reverse the scan outside of the WHERE bounds. This would cause a query to hang in a sending data state for several minutes in some environments with large amounts of data (3 billion records) if the ORDER BY DESC statement was used. Bugs fixed #988, #233, and #534.

Other bugs fixed: #1399562 (upstream #75112), #1510564 (upstream #78981), #1496282 (#964), #1496786 (#956), #1566790, #1552673, #1567247, #1567869, #718, #914, #970, #971, #972, #976, #977, #981, #637, and #982.

Release notes for Percona Server 5.6.30-76.3 are available in the online documentation. Please report any bugs on the launchpad bug tracker.


Faster restarts for MySQL and Percona Server 5.6.21+

Faster restarts for MySQL and Percona Server 5.6.21+By default in MySQL 5.6, each time MySQL is started (regular start or crash recovery), it iterates through all the binlog files when GTIDs are not enabled. This can take a very long time if you have a large number of binary log files. MySQL and Percona Server 5.6.21+ have a fix with the simplified-binlog-gtid-recovery option. Let’s explore this issue.

Understanding the issue

It was first reported by Yoshinori @ Facebook (bug #69097).

Let’s start by looking at a MySQL 5.6 instance where binary logging is enabled but GTIDs are disabled.

If we restart MySQL with strace, we’ll see:

# strace -e open service mysql start
open("/var/lib/mysql5621/mysql-bin.000004", O_RDONLY) = 13
open("/var/lib/mysql5621/mysql-bin.000003", O_RDONLY) = 13
open("/var/lib/mysql5621/mysql-bin.000002", O_RDONLY) = 13
open("/var/lib/mysql5621/mysql-bin.000001", O_RDONLY) = 13

MySQL opens all binary log files in reverse order. This can bite if you have lots of binlog files or if the binlog files are large.

This does not happen with MySQL 5.5, so why such a change? The reason is … GTIDs. If you look at the bug report, MySQL tries to initialize a few GTID-related settings even if gtid_mode = OFF

The same kind of issue happens when you have binlog files with GTIDs and binlog files without GTIDs:

# strace -e open service mysql start
open("/var/lib/mysql5621/mysql-bin.000010", O_RDONLY) = 13
open("/var/lib/mysql5621/mysql-bin.000001", O_RDONLY) = 13
open("/var/lib/mysql5621/mysql-bin.000002", O_RDONLY) = 13
open("/var/lib/mysql5621/mysql-bin.000003", O_RDONLY) = 13
open("/var/lib/mysql5621/mysql-bin.000004", O_RDONLY) = 13
open("/var/lib/mysql5621/mysql-bin.000005", O_RDONLY) = 13
open("/var/lib/mysql5621/mysql-bin.000006", O_RDONLY) = 13  -> First binlog file with GTIDs

Actually you can see that MySQL will do 2 scans: a reverse scan and a forward scan. Here not all binlogs need to be opened: MySQL will stop scanning files as soon as it finds GTID information. But that can again bite if you have just turned on GTIDs (and therefore most binlog files do not contain any GTID information).

Now what happens if you set gtid_mode = ON from the start or if all the binlog files without any GTID information have been removed?

# strace -e open service mysql start
open("/var/lib/mysql5621/mysql-bin.000011", O_RDONLY) = 13
open("/var/lib/mysql5621/mysql-bin.000006", O_RDONLY) = 13

Only the newest and the oldest binlog files are opened, which is expected.

The fix

The fix is easy: simply add simplified-binlog-gtid-recovery = 1 in your configuration file. When this is set, MySQL will open at most 2 binlog files: the newest one and the oldest one. See the documentation.

Let’s see what happens with our server containing some binlog files without GTID information:

# strace -e open service mysql start
open("/var/lib/mysql5621/mysql-bin.000012", O_RDONLY) = 13
open("/var/lib/mysql5621/mysql-bin.000001", O_RDONLY) = 13

What is the performance overhead of the binlog scans? Of course YMMV, but I did a quick test on my laptop by creating 80x 100MB binlog files: by default, startup takes 6s while with simplified-binlog-gtid-recovery=1 it only takes 2s. 3x improvement with a single setting, not bad!


It is good to see that regressions introduced in MySQL 5.6 are being fixed over time. This one is pretty nasty as most people not using GTIDs will never think that something related to GTIDs can actually create performance issues. Is there any drawback if you enable this setting? I can’t think of any, so I’m hoping it will be enabled by default in 5.7.

How Percona tested Percona Server 5.6: A world premiere in advanced testing

8PM. One of the servers found a critical bug. Hop online and discuss, log bug. 10PM. Patch ready. 10:30PM. New build ready. 10:45PM. New RQG run initiated. This was by no means an uncommon sight during the months of testing that went into Percona Server 5.6, in fact it was commonplace.

At a certain point, we had 3 very high end servers (modern cpu’s, heaps of cores and memory), all equipped with either fast SSD’s or Fusion-io flash storage, executing thousands of trials, 8 in parallel per server, each executing 1 to 25 mysql threads per running mysqld instance.

And that was just the final months of testing. Before that much work was done on finding “every last bug out there”. We discovered many bugs in both upstream (Oracle’s MySQL 5.6) and in Percona Server 5.6. I personally logged around 100 bugs, but the total count would be much higher still.

My colleague Laurynas (lead of Percona Server) stated at some point during the testing that Percona Server 5.6 is the most qualitative release we have ever made. I agree wholeheartedly with him, and would add to it that we have also included a long list of upstream bugs present in Oracle’s MySQL 5.6.

During the many months of testing, we would have executed around 15000-20000 individual trial runs in RQG (start mysqld, test, stop mysqld), if not more, and each trial lasting around 5 minutes.

So what is the world premiere mentioned in the title all about you may wonder? During the testing, it became clear (and paramount) that testing the ever growing number of options in both upstream and Percona Server could not proceed as it had in the past.

With 35+ options, each of those to be tested in 2-way and 3-way combinations, and each of those being having multiple valid value settings, the number of combinations quickly became dazzling. “2 Years for testing” is just not an option.

The solution came by starting to use advanced option combinatorics, also called “pairwise testing”. For example, if you test abc (where a,b,c are options), and you are testing 2-way combinations, any other combinations with “bc” or “ab” or “ac” could potentially be excluded from the stream.

For the full article and information on how to get into combinatorics, see here. As far as I know, this was the first time this technique was used (worldwide) for mysqld option testing! It was exhilarating to see that instead of thousands of trials, we eventually only needed 133 trials across 3 build types.

Sidenote: When testing using the RQG, we usually focus on 3 types of Percona Server builds: optimized (the “production” binary), debug (with debug instrumentation activated, enabling us to check more developer asserts etc.), and finally Valgrind (with valgrind instrumentation, enabling us to see if developers made mistakes like forgetting to release memory, etc.)

Besides this extensive RQG testing, Percona relies on a huge Jenkins farm to do much of it’s automated regression and performance check testing. For each code push, we execute thousands of tests across a myriad of OS platforms. Each day, we also do an automated performance sanity check to ensure that server performance did not suddenly drop due to an inadvertent change. Finally, patches to the server are reviewed by two developers.

As you can see, when you use Percona Server 5.6, you can sleep at night, knowing that your database is running on software tested by one of the most advanced testing techniques in use today, as well as having been evaluated by top-notch testing frameworks, and people who care about the quality of their product!

Percona Server 5.6 Webinar follow-up and Q&A

Good news everyone! I recently presented a webinar: Percona Server 5.6: Enterprise Grade MySQL. It was also recorded so you can watch along or view the slide deck. As with all my talks, I am not simply reading the slides so it really is worth to listen to the audio rather than just glance through the slide deck.

There were a number of great questions asked which I’ll answer below:

Q: How does Stewart feel about this version of 5.6 taking into consideration “Stewart’s .20 rule?” (ref 2013 Percona Live Conference).

A: For those who aren’t familiar with it, I have a rule which I call “Stewart’s dot twenty rule” which I’ve posted a few times about on my personal blog. It states: “a piece of software is never really mature until a dot twenty release.” I would say that MySQL 5.6 (and Percona Server 5.6) are both in really good states currently.

I strongly recommend the excellent series of “Fun With Bugs” posts by Valeriy Kravchuk. The latest Fun With Bugs post is: Fun with Bugs #20 – welcome MySQL 5.6.13! and certainly worth a read. I’m rather safe in saying that the first GA release of MySQL 5.6 was by far the best first GA release of any MySQL version ever and subsequent MySQL 5.6 releases have improved upon that. It is quite likely that 5.6 will work perfectly for you today.

If you are really conservative with software upgrades and want as few surprises as possible, then you can of course wait – but I’d certainly recommend kicking the tyres of 5.6 over the next few months and starting to plan a migration.

Q: Any estimate on availability of XtraDB Cluster using 5.6?

A: Since Percona XtraDB Cluster is built upon both Percona Server and Galera it’s only natural to build upon a GA release of Percona Server and a GA release of Galera.

Q: What’s the birds name?

Spike the cockatiel

Spike the cockatiel

A: (Background: at one point during the Webinar you could hear one of our pet birds start to burst into song). I’m glad you asked as it gives me an excellent opportunity to include gratuitous photos of our birds! They’re both Cockatiels. People will often think cockatoo (specifically the Sulphur-Crested Cockatoo)and not cockatiel. A cockatoo is any of the 21 species belonging to the bird family Cacatuidae and the cockatiel is the smallest of the 21 species.

Beaker helping out with our next release

Beaker the cockatiel helping with Percona Server 5.6

We have both a boy (Spike) and a girl (Beaker). Spike is the one who sings (while Beaker, like the muppet, goes meep) and could be heard for a moment during the webinar. Beaker has also been spotted helping with Percona Server 5.6 releases.

Q: The ‘first in Percona Server’ optimizations, did Oracle implement Percona code or write their own?

A: It would be accurate to say that there are changes in MySQL 5.6 that have been inspired by our work, and previously there has been Percona code that has made its way into MySQL (see COPYING.Percona in the MySQL bzr repository). For a multitude of reasons that aren’t worth going into here, it has historically been problematic getting code into MySQL if you didn’t work for the company that owned MySQL. This has been true of MySQL AB, Sun and Oracle and is certainly nothing new or unique to Oracle. What is different now is that things seem to be changing for the better and there is likely to be more cooperation with Oracle going forward.

Q: Has HandlerSocket been cooked into your 5.6 releases yet? Have there been any other improvements on that front?

A: We don’t currently have HandlerSocket in Percona Server 5.6. There has been a very small amount of adoption of HandlerSocket and we’ve taken the approach that we’ll see if the HandlerSocket team ports to 5.6 and if there is adequate demand for HandlerSocket in 5.6. So far, you’re the first person to request it.

Q: What Oracle 5.6 features have not yet been copied or reimplemented in Percona 5.6?

A: Everything in Oracle MySQL 5.6 is in Percona Server 5.6 and has been from the very first Percona Server 5.6 release.

Q: Was innodb fake changes picked up by Oracle?

A: No, at least not yet :)

Q: Has Percona developed or found some solutions for migrating a production Percona server 5.5 to a production Percona server 5.6 without any downtime. Previously I solved this by making a newer version of Percona server as a replica of an older version of either Percona server or mysql db. Then I would point the application servers to the new replica to complete the deployment with a trivial downtime. It seems like this approach is not valid given the new replication design.

A: You can do the old replication trick

Q: Can Xtrabackup 5.6 be used on a system running Percona Server 5.5?

A: Percona XtraBackup 2.1 (the current stable release, which works with MySQL 5.6 and Percona Server 5.6) will also work with MySQL 5.5, Percona Server 5.5, Percona Server 5.1 and MySQL 5.1 running the innodb plugin. There is also support for various MariaDB versions.

Q: question on replication: my database has no partitioned table, multi-thread replication (feature of 5.6) is not going to help. Am I right?

A: Currently the multi-threaded replication slave will partition work up across database schema. It doesn’t matter if your tables are partitioned or not, it matters what database (schema) they’re in. If all your tables are in the same schema, then parallel slave will not currently help.

Q: Is Percona Server 5.6 a drop in replacement for 5.5 or is there an upgrade process? If so, what is involved to roll back to 5.5 if necessary?

A: The upgrade process should be fairly painless and could well be a simple drop-in replacement. It does, of course, depend on what features you may be using along with the type and size of workload. We have a In-Place upgrading from Percona Server 5.5 to Percona Server 5.6 section in our Percona Server 5.6 manual and along with the Changed in Percona Server 5.6 section this should provide a fair amount of insight into what you may expect from the Percona Server side of things. There is also the Upgrading from MySQL 5.5 to 5.6 section of the MySQL manual which is well worth a read.

There is a section in the MySQL manual on downgrading from 5.6 to 5.5 and I don’t think there should be any extra limitations imposed by Percona Server on going from 5.6 back to 5.5. That being said, downgrading is certainly not as well tested as upgrading and I would consider it more of a last resort than something to jump to quickly.

Q: When does production Percona server 5.6 release?

A: Soon. The current Percona Server 5.6 releases are fairly solid and I can certainly recommend trialling them.

Q: Are there any known mysqllib binding issues or deprecations for 5.6?

A: None that I’m aware of.

Q: Is there a white paper or other docs on migratiing from 5.1 Percona server to 5.6 Percona server?

A: Not currently. Generally, the recommended practice is to go through each major version (going through 5.5 before heading to 5.6). There is upgrade documentation for upgrading 5.1 to 5.5 and for 5.5 to 5.6 – and you can certainly run 5.5 for only a few minutes before upgrading to 5.6.

Q: Will you offer training on 5.6?

A: Yes! There is a Moving to MySQL 5.6 training course offered by Percona which covers both MySQL 5.6 and Percona Server 5.6.

Q: I didn’t notice any mention of the improved NUMA support in PS 5.5 ( Is this carried over to Oracle and/or Percona 5.6?

A: Yes it has made it into Percona Server 5.6. See for the 5.6 documentation on it. I am not aware of Oracle having implemented it though.

Q: Have you made tests of user_stats overhead compared to performance_schema in 5.6?

A: I’m not aware of any published benchmarks for 5.6 although it would be great to see some.

Q: Does this release support the live table changes?

A: For some types of changes, yes.

Q: Is “Warning: Using a password on the command line interface can be insecure.” error being filtered out in the Percona release?

A: No. It’s not a good idea to provide passwords on the command line.

Q: He also promised a migration blog post ;-)

A: As promised, I am right now going to pester people about writing various posts on migrating from 5.5 to 5.6.

I’m personally looking forward to Matt Aslett’s keynote on Thursday morning of the Percona Live MySQL Conference. Matt is the Research Director, Data Management and Analytics for 451 Research. The description for his talk, “The State of the MySQL Ecosystem“, summarizes what we’re all coming to understand:

“It is now over three years since Oracle acquired MySQL along with Sun Microsystems. Fears for the open source database’s survival appear to have been misplaced as Oracle has increased investment in MySQL development. At the same time, a thriving ecosystem of potential alternatives and complementary products has emerged to provide MySQL users with greater choice in terms of both functionality and support. As a result of that choice, we are seeing the increasing independence of the ecosystem of MySQL-related products and services from MySQL itself – both in terms of a commercial product, and also a development project. The continued maturity of vendors such as Percona and SkySQL, as well as the formation of the MariaDB Foundation, has the potential to accelerate that trend. The MySQL ecosystem is far from fragmenting, but 451 Research’s updated survey of database users indicates that the center of gravity has begun to shift towards an increased state of independence.”

Mirroring the growing diversity in the MySQL ecosystem, Percona Live MySQL Conference attendees have an opportunity to hear from a variety of server projects in both the keynotes and breakout sessions including presentations on Oracle MySQL, Percona Server, and MariaDB during the Percona Live MySQL Conference.

MySQL 5.6 Compatible Percona XtraBackup 2.0.6 Released

MySQL 5.6 Compatible Percona XtraBackup 2.0.6

MySQL 5.6 Compatible Percona XtraBackup 2.0.6 was released March 20.

Percona is glad to announce the release of Percona XtraBackup 2.0.6 for MySQL 5.6 on March 20, 2013. Downloads are available from our download site here and Percona Software Repositories.

This release is the current GA (Generally Available) stable release in the 2.0 series.

New Features:

  • XtraBackup 2.0.6 has implemented basic support for MySQL 5.6, Percona Server 5.6 and MariaDB 10.0. Basic support means that these versions are are recognized by XtraBackup, and that backup/restore works as long as no 5.6-specific features are used (such as GTID, remote/transportable tablespaces, separate undo tablespace, 5.6-style buffer pool dump files).

Bugs Fixed:

  • Individual InnoDB tablespaces with size less than 1MB were extended to 1MB on the backup prepare operation. This led to a large increase in disk usage in cases when there are many small InnoDB tablespaces. Bug fixed #950334 (Daniel Frett, Alexey Kopytov).
  • Fixed the issue that caused databases corresponding to inaccessible datadir subdirectories to be ignored by XtraBackup without warning or error messages. This was happening because InnoDB code silently ignored datadir subdirectories it could not open. Bug fixed #664986 (Alexey Kopytov).
  • Under some circumstances XtraBackup could fail to copy a tablespace with a high --parallel option value and a low innodb_open_files value. Bug fixed #870119 (Alexey Kopytov).
  • Fix for the bug #711166 introduced a regression that caused individual partition backups to fail when used with --include option in innobackupex or the --tables option in xtrabackup. Bug fixed #1130627 (Alexey Kopytov).
  • innobackupex didn’t add the file-per-table setting for table-independent backups. Fixed by making XtraBackup auto-enable innodb_file_per_table when the --export option is used. Bug fixed #930062 (Alexey Kopytov).
  • Under some circumstances XtraBackup could fail on a backup prepare with innodb_flush_method=O_DIRECT. Bug fixed #1055547 (Alexey Kopytov).
  • innobackupex did not pass the --tmpdir option to the xtrabackup binary resulting in the server’s tmpdir always being used for temporary files. Bug fixed #1085099 (Alexey Kopytov).
  • XtraBackup for MySQL 5.6 has improved the error reporting for unrecognized server versions. Bug fixed #1087219 (Alexey Kopytov).
  • Fixed the missing rpm dependency for Perl Time::HiRes package that caused innobackupex to fail on minimal CentOS installations. Bug fixed #1121573 (Alexey Bychko).
  • innobackupex would fail when --no-lock and --rsync were used in conjunction. Bug fixed #1123335 (Sergei Glushchenko).
  • Fix for the bug #1055989 introduced a regression that caused xtrabackup_pid file to remain in the temporary dir after execution. Bug fixed #1114955 (Alexey Kopytov).
  • Unnecessary debug messages have been removed from the XtraBackup output. Bug fixed #1131084 (Alexey Kopytov).

Other bug fixes: bug fixed #1153334 (Alexey Kopytov), bug fixed #1098498 (Laurynas Biveinis), bug fixed #1132763 (Laurynas Biveinis), bug fixed #1142229 (Laurynas Biveinis), bug fixed #1130581 (Laurynas Biveinis).

Release notes with all the bugfixes for Percona XtraBackup 2.0.6 for MySQL 5.6 are available in our online documentation. Bugs can be reported on the launchpad bug tracker.
