Percona Server 5.7.12-5 is now available

percona server 5.6.30-76.3

percona server 5.6.30-76.3Percona is glad to announce the GA release of Percona Server 5.7.12-5 on June 6, 2016. Download the latest version from the Percona web site or from the Percona Software Repositories.

Based on MySQL 5.7.12, including all the bug fixes in it, Percona Server 5.7.12-5 is the current GA release in the Percona Server 5.7 series. All of Percona’s software is open-source and free, all the details of the release can be found in the 5.7.12-5 milestone at Launchpad.

Bugs Fixed:

  • MEMORY storage engine did not support JSON columns. Bug fixed #1536469.
  • 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 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).
  • Adding an index to an InnoDB temporary table while expand_fast_index_creation was enabled could lead to server assertion. Bug fixed #1554622.
  • Percona Server was missing the innodb_numa_interleave server variable. Bug fixed #1561091 (upstream #80288).
  • Running SHOW STATUS in parallel to online buffer pool resizing could lead to server crash. Bug fixed #1577282.
  • InnoDB crash recovery might fail if innodb_flush_method was set to ALL_O_DIRECT. Bug fixed #1529885.
  • 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.
  • CMake would fail if TokuDB tests passed. Bug fixed #1521566.
  • 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.
  • Parallel doublewrite memory was not freed with innodb_fast_shutdown was set to 2. Bug fixed #1578139.
  • Server will now show 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.
  • The error log warning Too many connections was only printed for connection attempts when max_connections + one SUPER have connected. If the extra SUPER is not connected, the warning was not printed for a non-SUPER connection attempt. Bug fixed #1583553.
  • apt-cache show command for percona-server-client was showing innotop included as part of the package. Bug fixed #1201074.
  • A replication slave would fail to connect to a master running 5.5. Bug fixed #1566642 (upstream #80962).
  • Upgrade logic for figuring if TokuDB upgrade can be performed from the version on disk to the current version was broken due to regression introduced when fixing bug #684 in Percona Server 5.7.11-4. Bug fixed #717.
  • Fixed jemalloc version parsing error. Bug fixed #528.
  • 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_pk_insert_mode session variable has been deprecated and the behavior will be that of the former tokudb_pk_insert_mode set to 1. The optimization will be used where safe and not used where not safe. 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 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: #1510564 (upstream #78981), #1533482 (upstream #79999), #1553166, #1496282 (#964), #1496786 (#956), #1566790, #718, #914, #937, #954, #955, #970, #971, #972, #976, #977, #981, #982, #637, and #982.

NOTE: X Plugin is a part of the MySQL community server so it’s part of the Percona Server 5.7.12-5 release as well. But users will need to install MySQL Shell from official MySQL repositories.

Release notes for Percona Server 5.7.12-5 are available in the online documentation. Please report any bugs on the launchpad bug tracker .

Percona XtraBackup 2.4.3 is now available

Percona XtraBackup 2.4.3


Percona XtraBackup 2.4.3Percona
is glad to announce the GA release of Percona XtraBackup 2.4.3 on May 23rd, 2016. Downloads are available from our download site and from apt and yum repositories.

Percona XtraBackup enables MySQL backups without blocking user queries, making it ideal for companies with large data sets and mission-critical applications that cannot tolerate long periods of downtime. Offered free as an open source solution, Percona XtraBackup drives down backup costs while providing unique features for MySQL backups

New Features:

  • Percona XtraBackup has implemented new --reencrypt-for-server-id option. Using this option allows users to start the server instance with different server_id from the one the encrypted backup was taken from, like a replication slave or a Galera node. When this option is used, xtrabackup will, as a prepare step, generate a new master key with ID based on the new server_id, store it into keyring file and re-encrypt the tablespace keys inside of tablespace headers.

Bugs Fixed:

  • Running DDL statements on Percona Server 5.7 during the backup process could in some cases lead to failure while preparing the backup. Bug fixed #1555626.
  • MySQL 5.7 can sometimes skip redo logging when creating an index. If such ALTER TABLE is being issued during the backup, the backup would be inconsistent. xtrabackup will now abort with an error message if such ALTER TABLE has been done during the backup. Bug fixed #1582345.
  • .ibd files for remote tablespaces were not copied back to the original location pointed by the .isl files. Bug fixed #1555423.
  • When called with insufficient parameters, like specifying the empty --defaults-file option, Percona XtraBackup could crash. Bug fixed #1566228.
  • The documentation states that the default value for –ftwrl-wait-query-type is all, however it was update. Changed the default value to reflect the documentation. Bug fixed #1566315.
  • When –keyring-file-data option was specified, but no keyring file was found, xtrabackup would create an empty one instead of reporting an error. Bug fixed #1578607.
  • If ALTER INSTANCE ROTATE INNODB MASTER KEY was run at the same time when xtrabackup --backup was bootstrapping it could catch a moment when the key was not written into the keyring file yet and xtrabackup would overwrite the keyring with the old copy of a keyring, so the new key would be lost. Bug fixed #1582601.
  • The output of the --slave-info option was missing an apostrophe. Bug fixed #1573371.

Release notes with all the bugfixes for Percona XtraBackup 2.4.3 are available in our online documentation. Bugs can be reported on the launchpad bug tracker.

Based on MySQL 5.7.11, including all the bug fixes in it, Percona Server 5.7.11-4 is the current GA release in the Percona Server 5.7 series. All of Percona’s software is open-source and free, all the details of the release can be found in the 5.7.11-4 milestone at Launchpad.

New Features:

Bugs Fixed:

  • If pid-file option wasn’t specified with the full path, Ubuntu/Debian sysvinit script wouldn’t notice if the server is actually running which would lead to timeout or in some cases even hang. Bug fixed #1549333.
  • Buffer pool may fail to remove dirty pages for a particular tablesspace from the flush list, as requested by, for example, DROP TABLE or TRUNCATE TABLE commands. This could lead to a crash. Bug fixed #1552673.
  • Audit Log Plugin worker thread may crash on write call writing fewer bytes than requested. Bug fixed #1552682 (upstream #80606).
  • Percona Server 5.7 systemd script now takes the last option specified in my.cnf if the same option is specified multiple times. Previously it would try to take all values which would break the script and server would fail to start. Bug fixed #1554976.
  • mysqldumpslow script has been removed because it was not compatible with Percona Server extended slow query log format. Please use pt-query-digest from Percona Toolkit instead. Bug fixed #856910.

Other bugs fixed: #1521120, #1549301 (upstream #80496), and #1554043 (upstream #80607).
