Changes in MySQL Cluster NDB 7.1.32 (5.1.73-ndb-7.1.32) (2014-07-15)

MySQL Cluster NDB 7.1.32 is a new release of MySQL Cluster,
incorporating new features in the NDBCLUSTER storage engine and
fixing recently discovered bugs in previous MySQL Cluster NDB 7.1
releases.

Obtaining MySQL Cluster NDB 7.1. The latest MySQL Cluster NDB 7.1
binaries for supported platforms can be obtained from
http://dev.mysql.com/downloads/cluster/. Source code for the
latest MySQL Cluster NDB 7.1 release can be obtained from the same
location. You can also access the MySQL Cluster NDB 7.1
development source tree at
https://code.launchpad.net/~mysql/mysql-server/mysql-cluster-7.1.

This release also incorporates all bugfixes and changes made in
previous MySQL Cluster releases, as well as all bugfixes and
feature changes which were added in mainline MySQL 5.1 through
MySQL 5.1.73 (see Changes in MySQL 5.1.73 (2013-12-03)
(http://dev.mysql.com/doc/relnotes/mysql/5.1/en/news-5-1-73.html))
.

Functionality Added or Changed

   * Cluster API: Added as an aid to debugging the ability to
     specify a human-readable name for a given Ndb object and later
     to retrieve it. These operations are implemented,
     respectively, as the setNdbObjectName() and getNdbObjectName()
     methods.
     To make tracing of event handling between a user application
     and NDB easier, you can use the reference (from getReference()
     followed by the name (if provided) in printouts; the reference
     ties together the application Ndb object, the event buffer,
     and the NDB storage engine's SUMA block. (Bug #18419907)

Bugs Fixed

   * Processing a NODE_FAILREP signal that contained an invalid
     node ID could cause a data node to fail. (Bug #18993037, Bug
     #73015)
     References: This bug is a regression of Bug #16007980.

   * ndbmtd supports multiple parallel receiver threads, each of
     which performs signal reception for a subset of the remote
     node connections (transporters) with the mapping of
     remote_nodes to receiver threads decided at node startup.
     Connection control is managed by the multi-instance TRPMAN
     block, which is organized as a proxy and workers, and each
     receiver thread has a TRPMAN worker running locally.
     The QMGR block sends signals to TRPMAN to enable and disable
     communications with remote nodes. These signals are sent to
     the TRPMAN proxy, which forwards them to the workers. The
     workers themselves decide whether to act on signals, based on
     the set of remote nodes they manage.
     The current isuue arises because the mechanism used by the
     TRPMAN workers for determining which connections they are
     responsible for was implemented in such a way that each worker
     thought it was responsible for all connections. This resulted
     in the TRPMAN actions for OPEN_COMORD, ENABLE_COMREQ, and
     CLOSE_COMREQ being processed multiple times.
     The fix keeps TRPMAN instances (receiver threads) executing
     OPEN_COMORD, ENABLE_COMREQ and CLOSE_COMREQ requests. In
     addition, the correct TRPMAN instance is now chosen when
     routing from this instance for a specific remote connection.
     (Bug #18518037)

   * Executing ALTER TABLE ... REORGANIZE PARTITION after
     increasing the number of data nodes in the cluster from 4 to
     16 led to a crash of the data nodes. This issue was shown to
     be a regression caused by previous fix which added a new dump
     handler using a dump code that was already in use (7019),
     which caused the command to execute two different handlers
     with different semantics. The new handler was assigned a new
     DUMP code (7024). (Bug #18550318)
     References: This bug is a regression of Bug #14220269.

   * A local checkpoint (LCP) is tracked using a global LCP state
     (c_lcpState), and each NDB table has a status indicator which
     indicates the LCP status of that table (tabLcpStatus). If the
     global LCP state is LCP_STATUS_IDLE, then all the tables
     should have an LCP status of TLS_COMPLETED.
     When an LCP starts, the global LCP status is LCP_INIT_TABLES
     and the thread starts setting all the NDB tables to
     TLS_ACTIVE. If any tables are not ready for LCP, the LCP
     initialization procedure continues with CONTINUEB signals
     until all tables have become available and been marked
     TLS_ACTIVE. When this initialization is complete, the global
     LCP status is set to LCP_STATUS_ACTIVE.
     This bug occurred when the following conditions were met:

        + An LCP was in the LCP_INIT_TABLES state, and some but not
          all tables had been set to TLS_ACTIVE.

        + The master node failed before the global LCP state
          changed to LCP_STATUS_ACTIVE; that is, before the LCP
          could finish processing all tables.

        + The NODE_FAILREP signal resulting from the node failure
          was processed before the final CONTINUEB signal from the
          LCP initialization process, so that the node failure was
          processed while the LCP remained in the LCP_INIT_TABLES
          state.
     Following master node failure and selection of a new one, the
     new master queries the remaining nodes with a MASTER_LCPREQ
     signal to determine the state of the LCP. At this point, since
     the LCP status was LCP_INIT_TABLES, the LCP status was reset
     to LCP_STATUS_IDLE. However, the LCP status of the tables was
     not modified, so there remained tables with TLS_ACTIVE.
     Afterwards, the failed node is removed from the LCP. If the
     LCP status of a given table is TLS_ACTIVE, there is a check
     that the global LCP status is not LCP_STATUS_IDLE; this check
     failed and caused the data node to fail.
     Now the MASTER_LCPREQ handler ensures that the tabLcpStatus
     for all tables is updated to TLS_COMPLETED when the global LCP
     status is changed to LCP_STATUS_IDLE. (Bug #18044717)

   * The logging of insert failures has been improved. This is
     intended to help diagnose occasional issues seen when writing
     to the mysql.ndb_binlog_index table. (Bug #17461625)

   * Employing a CHAR column that used the UTF8 character set as a
     table's primary key column led to node failure when restarting
     data nodes. Attempting to restore a table with such a primary
     key also caused ndb_restore to fail. (Bug #16895311, Bug
     #68893)

   * Cluster Replication: When using NDB$EPOCH_TRANS, conflicts
     between DELETE operations were handled like conflicts between
     updates, with the primary rejecting the transaction and
     dependents, and realigning the secondary. This meant that
     their behavior with regard to subsequent operations on any
     affected row or rows depended on whether they were in the same
     epoch or a different one: within the same epoch, they were
     considered conflicting events; in different epochs, they were
     not considered in conflict.
     This fix brings the handling of conflicts between deletes by
     NDB$EPOCH_TRANS with that performed when using NDB$EPOCH for
     conflict detection and resolution, and extends testing with
     NDB$EPOCH and NDB$EPOCH_TRANS to include "delete-delete"
     conflicts, and encapsulate the expected result, with
     transactional conflict handling modified so that a conflict
     between DELETE operations alone is not sufficient to cause a
     transaction to be considered in conflict. (Bug #18459944)

   * Cluster API: When an NDB data node indicates a buffer overflow
     via an empty epoch, the event buffer places an inconsistent
     data event in the event queue. When this was consumed, it was
     not removed from the event queue as expected, causing
     subsequent nextEvent() calls to return 0. This caused event
     consumption to stall because the inconsistency remained
     flagged forever, while event data accumulated in the queue.
     Event data belonging to an empty inconsistent epoch can be
     found either at the beginning or somewhere in the middle.
     pollEvents() returns 0 for the first case. This fix handles
     the second case: calling nextEvent() call dequeues the
     inconsistent event before it returns. In order to benefit from
     this fix, user applications must call nextEvent() even when
     pollEvents() returns 0. (Bug #18716991)

   * Cluster API: The pollEvents() method returned 1, even when
     called with a wait time equal to 0, and there were no events
     waiting in the queue. Now in such cases it returns 0 as
     expected. (Bug #18703871)
