View as plain text  
Dear MySQL Users,

MySQL Cluster is the distributed, shared-nothing variant of MySQL.
This storage engine provides:

   - In-Memory storage - Real-time performance
   - Transparent Auto-Sharding - Read & write scalability
   - Active-Active/Multi-Master geographic replication
   - 99.999% High Availability with no single point of failure
     and on-line maintenance
   - NoSQL and SQL APIs (including C++, Java, http, Memcached
     and JavaScript/Node.js)

MySQL Cluster 7.4 makes significant advances in performance;
operational efficiency (such as enhanced reporting and faster restarts
and upgrades) and conflict detection and resolution for active-active
replication between MySQL Clusters.

MySQL Cluster 7.4.12, has been released and can be downloaded from

where you will also find Quick Start guides to help you get your
first MySQL Cluster database up and running.

The release notes are available from

MySQL Cluster enables users to meet the database challenges of next
generation web, cloud, and communications services with uncompromising
scalability, uptime and agility.

Enjoy !

Changes in MySQL Cluster NDB 7.4.12 (5.6.31-ndb-7.4.12) (2016-07-18)

    MySQL Cluster NDB 7.4.12 is a new release of MySQL Cluster
    7.4, based on MySQL Server 5.6 and including features in
    version 7.4 of the NDB storage engine, as well as fixing
    recently discovered bugs in previous MySQL Cluster releases.

    Obtaining MySQL Cluster NDB 7.4.  MySQL Cluster NDB 7.4
    source code and binaries can be obtained from

    For an overview of changes made in MySQL Cluster NDB 7.4, see
    What is New in MySQL Cluster NDB 7.4

    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 5.6
    through MySQL 5.6.31 (see Changes in MySQL 5.6.31
tml <>)).

    Functionality Added or Changed

      * ClusterJ: To make it easier for ClusterJ to handle fatal
        errors that require the SessionFactory to be closed, a
        new public method in the SessionFactory interface,

has been created. When it returns zeros
        for all pooled connections, it means all sessions have
        been closed, at which point the SessionFactory can be
        closed and reopened. See Reconnecting to a MySQL Cluster

for more detail.
        (Bug #22353594)

    Bugs Fixed

      * Incompatible Change: When the data nodes are only
        partially connected to the API nodes, a node used for a
        pushdown join may get its request from a transaction
        coordinator on a different node, without (yet) being
        connected to the API node itself. In such cases, the
        NodeInfo object for the requesting API node contained no
        valid info about the software version of the API node,
        which caused the DBSPJ block to assume (incorrectly) when
        aborting to assume that the API node used NDB version
        7.2.4 or earlier, requiring the use of a backward
        compatability mode to be used during query abort which
        sent a node failure error instead of the real error
        causing the abort.
        Now, whenever this situation occurs, it is assumed that,
        if the NDB software version is not yet available, the API
        node version is greater than 7.2.4. (Bug #23049170)

      * Although arguments to the DUMP command are 32-bit
        integers, ndb_mgmd used a buffer of only 10 bytes when
        processing them. (Bug #23708039)

      * During shutdown, the mysqld process could sometimes hang
        after logging NDB Util: Stop ... NDB Util: Wakeup. (Bug
        References: See also: Bug #21098142.

      * During an online upgrade from a MySQL Cluster NDB 7.3
        release to an NDB 7.4 (or later) release, the failures of
        several data nodes running the lower version during local
        checkpoints (LCPs), and just prior to upgrading these
        nodes, led to additional node failures following the
        upgrade. This was due to lingering elements of the
        EMPTY_LCP protocol initiated by the older nodes as part
        of an LCP-plus-restart sequence, and which is no longer
        used in NDB 7.4 and later due to LCP optimizations
        implemented in those versions. (Bug #23129433)

      * Reserved send buffer for the loopback transporter,
        introduced in MySQL Cluster NDB 7.4.8 and used by API and
        management nodes for administrative signals, was
        calculated incorrectly. (Bug #23093656)
        References: This issue is a regression of: Bug #21664515.

      * During a node restart, re-creation of internal triggers
        used for verifying the referential integrity of foreign
        keys was not reliable, because it was possible that not
        all distributed TC and LDM instances agreed on all
        trigger identities. To fix this problem, an extra step is
        added to the node restart sequence, during which the
        trigger identities are determined by querying the current
        master node. (Bug #23068914)
        References: See also: Bug #23221573.

      * Following the forced shutdown of one of the 2 data nodes
        in a cluster where NoOfReplicas=2, the other data node
        shut down as well, due to arbitration failure. (Bug

      * The ndbinfo.tc_time_track_stats table uses histogram
        buckets to give a sense of the distribution of latencies.
        The sizes of these buckets were also reported as
        HISTOGRAM BOUNDARY INFO messages during data node
        startup; this printout was redundant and so has been
        removed. (Bug #22819868)

      * A failure occurred in DBTUP in debug builds when
        variable-sized pages for a fragment totalled more than 4
        GB. (Bug #21313546)

      * mysqld did not shut down cleanly when executing
        ndb_index_stat. (Bug #21098142)
        References: See also: Bug #23343739.

      * DBDICT and GETTABINFOREQ queue debugging were enhanced as

           + Monitoring by a data node of the progress of
             GETTABINFOREQ signals can be enabled by setting
             DictTrace >= 2.

           + Added the ApiVerbose configuration parameter, which
             enables NDB API debug logging for an API node where
             it is set greater than or equal to 2.

           + Added DUMP code 1229 which shows the current state
             of the GETTABINFOREQ queue. (See DUMP 1229
        See also The DBDICT Block
(Bug #20368450)
        References: See also: Bug #20368354.

      * Cluster API: Deletion of Ndb objects used a
        dispoportionately high amount of CPU. (Bug #22986823)
