Issues Fixed

Can result in unexpected behavior

  • When a connection pool is connected to a readconnroute service, the session command response verification unnecessarily stores prepared statements, which increases CPU usage for each prepared statement. (MXS-4726)

  • SELECTSELECT statements targeting the information_schema are cached and fail to invalidate appropriately, for example when a table is dropped. (MXS-4717)

    • Starting with this release, SELECT statements that target the information_schema are not cached.

  • When the ALTER, DROP, and RENAME statements are performed on a table, cache fails to invalidate cached SELECTSELECT statements on the table that has been changed. (MXS-4706)
