  • Revision #3455 Thu 2012-06-21 21:17:34 +0200
    • MDEV-342: Do not mark old binlog file as cleanly closed during rotate until the new file is fully synced to disk and binlog index. This fixes a window where a crash would leave next server restart unable to detect that a crash occured, causing recovery to fail.
  • Revision #3454 Thu 2012-06-21 19:02:53 +0200
    • MDEV-359: Fix another case where switch-off semisync could cause a race that ended with server crash.
    • This one was when the code releases and reaquires the lock with pthread_cond_wait() - and semisync is switched off meanwhile.
  • Revision #3453 Thu 2012-06-21 17:39:21 +0200
    • Use the portable form of INSTALL PLUGIN in rpl_mdev359.test
  • Revision #3452 Thu 2012-06-21 14:00:19 +0200
    • fixing the order of includes in the rpl_mdev359.test
  • Revision #3451 Thu 2012-06-21 11:52:54 +0200
    • MDEV-359: Server crash when SET GLOBAL rpl_semi_sync_master_enabled = OFF
    • The semisync code does a fast-but-unsafe check for enabled or not without lock, followed by a slow-but-safe check under lock. However, if the slow check failed, the code still referenced not valid data (in an assert() expression), causing a crash.
    • Fixed by not running the incorrect assert when semisync is disabled.
  • Revision #3450 Thu 2012-06-21 11:26:53 +0200
    • MDEV-349 5.5 xtradb innodb_prefix_index_liftedlimit crash with valgrind
    • This is XtraDB bug Bug #1015109, introduced by innodb_split_buf_pool_mutex.patch
    • Comment the offending assertion, until the fixed XtraDB is available
  • Revision #3449 Thu 2012-06-21 00:49:24 +0200
    • MDEV-361 - Fix handle leak in os_thread_create (Windows)
  • Revision #3448 Wed 2012-06-20 14:23:23 +0200
    • Fix memory leak introduced with merge of mysql 5.5.
    • MySQL introduced a class Deferred_log_events. This class keeps a pointer last_added. The code was keeping this pointer around even after the memory pointed to was freed, and later comparing the bogus pointer against other allocated memory. This is illegal, and can randomly produce false equal comparisons depending on whatever the malloc() subsystem decides to return.

        • Revision #2502.563.1 Mon 2012-06-11 22:12:47 -0700
          • Fixed Bug #1008293.
          • One of the reported problems manifested itself in the scenario when one thread tried to to get statistics on a key cache while the second thread had not finished initialization of the key cache structure yet. The problem was resolved by forcing serialization of such operations on key caches.
          • To serialize function calls to perform certain operations over a key cache a new mutex associated with the key cache now is used. It is stored in the field op_lock of the KEY_CACHE structure. It is locked when the operation is performed. Some of the serialized key cache operations utilize calls for other key cache operations. To avoid recursive locking of op_lock the new functions that perform the operations of key cache initialization, destruction and re-partitioning with an additional parameter were introduced. The parameter says whether the operation over op_lock are to be performed or are to be omitted. The old functions for the operations of key cache initialization, destruction,and re-partitioning now just call the corresponding new functions with the additional parameter set to true requesting to use op_lock while all other calls of these new function have this parameter set to false.
          • Another problem reported in the bug entry concerned the operation of assigning an index to a key cache. This operation can be called while the key cache structures are not initialized yet. In this case any call of flush_key_blocks() should return without any actions.
          • No test case is provided with this patch.

        • The problem is that some fix_fields do not call Item_func::fix_fields and do not collect with subselect_information.
      • Revision #2502.562.2 Wed 2012-05-23 18:18:08 +0300
        • Fix Bug #1001506
        • This is a backport of the (unchaged) fix for MySQL bug #11764372, 57197.
        • Analysis:
          • When the outer query finishes its main execution and computes GROUP BY, it needs to construct a new temporary table (and a corresponding JOIN) to execute the last DISTINCT operation. At this point JOIN::exec calls JOIN::join_free, which calls JOIN::cleanup -> TMP_TABLE_PARAM::cleanup for both the outer and the inner JOINs. The call to the inner TMP_TABLE_PARAM::cleanup sets copy_field = NULL, but not copy_field_end.
          •  
          • The final execution phase that computes the DISTINCT invokes: evaluate_join_record -> end_write -> copy_funcs The last function copies the results of all functions into the temp table. copy_funcs walks over all functions in join->tmp_table_param.items_to_copy. In this case items_to_copy contains both assignments to user variables. The process of copying user variables invokes Item_func_set_user_var::check which in turn re-evaluates the arguments of the user variable assignment. This in turn triggers re-evaluation of the subquery, and ultimately copy_field.
          •  
          • However, the previous call to TMP_TABLE_PARAM::cleanup for the subquery already set copy_field to NULL but not its copy_field_end. This results in a null pointer access, and a crash.
          •  
        • Fix:
          • Set copy_field_end and save_copy_field_end to null when deleting copy fields in TMP_TABLE_PARAM::cleanup().
      • Revision #2502.562.1 Tue 2012-05-22 08:48:10 +0300

        • Merge the fix for Bug #944706, MDEV-193
        • Revision #3402.1.5 Fri 2012-06-01 14:10:15 +0300
          • Fixed bug MDEV-288
          • CHEAP SQ: Valgrind warnings "Memory lost" with IN and EXISTS nested subquery, materialization+semijoin
          • Analysis:
            • The memory leak was a result of the interaction of semi-join optimization with early optimization of constant subqueries. The function: setup_jtbm_semi_joins() created a dummy temporary table "dummy_table" in order to make some JOIN_TAB objects complete. Normally, such temporary tables are freed inside JOIN_TAB::cleanup.
            •  
            • However, the inner-most subquery is pre-optimized, which allows the optimization fo the MAX subquery to determine that its WHERE is TRUE, and thus to compute the result of the MAX during optimization. This ultimately allows the optimize phase of the outer query to find that it WHERE clause is FALSE. Once JOIN::optimize finds that the result set is empty, it sets zero_result_cause, and returns *before* it ever reached make_join_statistics(). As a result the query plan has no JOIN_TABs at all. Since the temporary table is supposed to be cleanup via JOIN_TAB::cleanup, this never happens because there is no JOIN_TAB for this table. Hence we get a memory leak.
            •  
          • Solution:
            • Whenever there are no JOIN_TABs, iterate over all table reference in JOIN::join_list, and free the ones that contain semi-join temporary tables.
        • Revision #3402.1.4 Wed 2012-05-30 00:18:53 +0300
          • Patch for MDEV-287: CHEAP SQ: A query with subquery in SELECT list, EXISTS, inner joins takes hundreds times longer
          • Analysis:
            • The fix for Bug #944706 introduces early subquery optimization. While a subquery is being optimized some of its predicates may be removed. In the test case, the EXISTS subquery is constant, and is evaluated to TRUE. As a result the whole OR is TRUE, and thus the correlated condition "b = alias1.b" is optimized away. The subquery becomes non-correlated.
            •  
            • The subquery cache is designed to work only for correlated subqueries. If constant subquery optimization is disallowed, then the constant subquery is not evaluated, the subquery remains correlated, and its execution is cached. As a result execution is fast.
            •  
            • However, when the constant subquery was optimized away, it was neither cached by the subquery cache, nor it was cached by the internal subquery caching. The latter was due to the fact that the subquery still appeared as correlated to the subselect_XYZ_engine::exec methods, and they re-executed the subquery on each call to Item_subselect::exec.
            •  
          • Solution:
            • The solution is to update the correlated status of the subquery after it has been optimized. This status consists of:
            •  
              • st_select_lex::is_correlated
              • Item_subselect::is_correlated
              • SELECT_LEX::uncacheable
              • SELECT_LEX_UNIT::uncacheable
            •  
            • The status is updated by st_select_lex::update_correlated_cache(), and its caller st_select_lex::optimize_unflattened_subqueries. The solution relies on the fact that the optimizer already called st_select_lex::update_used_tables() for each subquery. This allows to efficiently update the correlated status of each subquery without walking the whole subquery tree.
            •  
            • Notice that his patch is an improvement over MySQL 5.6 and older, where subqueries are not pre-optimized, and the above analysis is not possible.
        • Revision #3402.1.3 Thu 2012-05-24 14:08:28 +0300
          • Test case for Bug #1001117, MySQL BUG#12330344
          • Analysis:
            • The problem in the original MySQL bug is that the range optimizer performs its analysis in a separate MEM_ROOT object that is freed after the range optimzier is done. During range analysis get_mm_tree calls Item_func_like::select_optimize, which in turn evaluates its right argument. In the test case the right argument is a subquery.
            •  
            • In MySQL, subqueries are optimized lazyly, thus the call to val_str triggers optimization for the subquery. All objects needed by the subquery plan end up in the temporary MEM_ROOT used by the range optimizer. When execution ends, the JOIN::cleanup process tries to cleanup objects of the subquery plan, but all these objects are gone with the temporary MEM_ROOT. The solution for MySQL is to switch the mem_root.
            •  
            • In MariaDB with the patch for bug Bug #944706, all constant subqueries that may be used by the optimization process are preoptimized. Therefore Item_func_like::select_optimize only triggers subquery execution, and the above problem is not present.
            •  
            • The patch however adds a test whether the evaluated right argument of the LIKE predicate is expensive. This is consistent with our approach not to evaluate expensive expressions during optimization.
        • Revision #3402.1.2 Fri 2012-05-18 14:52:01 +0300
          • Fixed bug MDEV-277 as part of the fix for Bug #944706
          • The cause for this bug is that the method JOIN::get_examined_rows iterates over all JOIN_TABs of the join assuming they are just a sequence. In the query above, the innermost subquery is merged into its parent query. When we call JOIN::get_examined_rows for the second-level subquery, the iteration that assumes sequential order of join tabs goes outside the join_tab array and calls the method JOIN_TAB::get_examined_rows on uninitialized memory.
          • The fix is to iterate over JOIN_TABs in a way that takes into account the nested semi-join structure of JOIN_TABs. In particular iterate as select_describe.
        • Revision #3402.1.1 Thu 2012-05-17 13:46:05 +0300
          • Fix for bug Bug #944706, task MDEV-193
          • The patch enables back constant subquery execution during query optimization after it was disabled during the development of MWL#89 (cost-based choice of IN-TO-EXISTS vs MATERIALIZATION).
          • The main idea is that constant subqueries are allowed to be executed during optimization if their execution is not expensive.
          • The approach is as follows:
            • Constant subqueries are recursively optimized in the beginning of JOIN::optimize of the outer query. This is done by the new method JOIN::optimize_constant_subqueries(). This is done so that the cost of executing these queries can be estimated.
            •  
            • Optimization of the outer query proceeds normally. During this phase the optimizer may request execution of non-expensive constant subqueries. Each place where the optimizer may potentially execute an expensive expression is guarded with the predicate Item::is_expensive().
            •  
            • The implementation of Item_subselect::is_expensive has been extended to use the number of examined rows (estimated by the optimizer) as a way to determine whether the subquery is expensive or not.
            •  
            • The new system variable "expensive_subquery_limit" controls how many examined rows are considered to be not expensive. The default is 100.
            •  
          • In addition, multiple changes were needed to make this solution work in the light of the changes made by MWL#89. These changes were needed to fix various crashes and wrong results, and legacy bugs discovered during development.

    • Revision #2502.561.5 Fri 2012-06-15 11:33:24 +0300
      • Fix Bug #1008686
      • Analysis:
        • The fix for bug Bug #985667 implements the method Item_subselect::no_rows_in_result() for all main kinds of subqueries. The purpose of this method is to be called from return_zero_rows() and set Items to some default value in the case when a query returns no rows. Aggregates and subqueries require special treatment in this case.
        •  
        • Every implementation of Item_subselect::no_rows_in_result() called Item_subselect::make_const() to set the subquery predicate to its default value irrespective of where the predicate was located in the query. Once the predicate was set to a constant it was never executed.
        •  
        • At the same time, the JOIN object of the fake select for UNIONs (the one used for the final result of the UNION), was set after all subqueries in the union were executed. Since we set the subquery as constant, it was never executed, and the corresponding JOIN was never created.
        •  
        • In order to decide whether the result of NOT IN is NULL or FALSE, Item_in_optimizer needs to check if the subquery result was empty or not. This is where we got the crash, because subselect_union_engine::no_rows() checks for unit->fake_select_lex->join->send_records, and the join object was NULL.
        •  
      • Solution:
        • If a subquery is in the HAVING clause it must be evaluated in order to know its result, so that we can properly filter the result records. Once subqueries in the HAVING clause are executed even in the case of no result rows, this specific crash will be solved, because the UNION will be executed, and its JOIN will be constructed. Therefore the fix for this crash is to narrow the fix for Bug #985667, and to apply Item_subselect::no_rows_in_result() only when the subquery predicate is in the SELECT clause.
    • Revision #2502.561.4 Thu 2012-06-14 17:03:09 +0300
      • Fix Bug #1008773
      • Analysis:
        • Queries with implicit grouping (there is aggregate, but no group by) follow some non-obvious semantics in the case of empty result set. Aggregate functions produce some special "natural" value depending on the function. For instance MIN/MAX return NULL, COUNT returns 0.
        •  
        • The complexity comes from non-aggregate expressions in the select list. If the non-aggregate expression is a constant, it can be computed, so we should return its value, however if the expression is non-constant, and depends on columns from the empty result set, then the only meaningful value is NULL.
        •  
        • The cause of the wrong result was that for subqueries the optimizer didn't make a difference between constant and non-constant ones in the case of empty result for implicit grouping.
        •  
      • Solution:
        • In all implementations of Item_subselect::no_rows_in_result() check if the subquery predicate is constant. If it is constant, do not set it to the default value for implicit grouping, instead let it be evaluated.

      • Fixed Bug #1010729.
      • The bug prevented acceptance of UNION queries whose non-first select clauses contained join expressions with degenerated single-table nests as valid queries.
      • The bug was introduced into mysql-5.5 code line by the patch for bug 33204.

      • Bug #1008334 : Speedup specific datetime queries that got slower with introduction of microseconds in 5.3
        • Item::get_seconds() now skips decimal arithmetic, if decimals is 0. This significantly speeds up from_unixtime() if no fractional part is passed.
        • replace sprintfs used to format temporal values by hand-coded formatting
        • Query1 (original query in the bug report)
          • BENCHMARK(10000000,DATE_SUB(FROM_UNIXTIME(RAND() * 2147483648), INTERVAL (FLOOR(1 + RAND() * 365)) DAY))
        • Query2 (Variation of query1 that does not use fractional part in FROM_UNIXTIME parameter)
          • BENCHMARK(10000000,DATE_SUB(FROM_UNIXTIME(FLOOR(RAND() * 2147483648)), INTERVAL (FLOOR(1 + RAND() * 365)) DAY))
        • Prior to the patch, the runtimes were (32 bit compilation/AMD machine)
          • Query1: 41.53 sec
          • Query2: 23.90 sec
        • With the patch, the runtimes are
          • Query1: 32.32 sec (speed up due to removing sprintf)
          • Query2: 12.06 sec (speed up due to skipping decimal arithmetic)

      • Fixed Bug #1000649
      • Analysis:
        • When the method JOIN::choose_subquery_plan() decided to apply the IN-TO-EXISTS strategy, it set the unit and select_lex uncacheable flag to UNCACHEABLE_DEPENDENT_INJECTED unconditionally.
        •  
        • As result, even if IN-TO-EXISTS injected non-correlated predicates, the subquery was still treated as correlated.
        •  
      • Solution:
        • Set the subquery as correlated only if the injected predicate(s) depend on the outer query.

      • MDEV-136 Non-blocking "set read_only"
      • backport dmitry.shulga@oracle.com-20120209125742-w7hdxv0103ymb8ko from mysql-trunk:
        • Patch for bug#11764747 (formerly known as 57612): SET GLOBAL READ_ONLY=1 cannot progress when a table is locked with LOCK TABLES.
        •  
        • The reason for the bug was that mysql server makes a flush of all open tables during handling of statement 'SET GLOBAL READ_ONLY=1'. Therefore if some of these tables were locked by "LOCK TABLE ... READ" from a different connection, then execution of statement 'SET GLOBAL READ_ONLY=1' would be waiting for the lock for such table even if the table was locked in a compatible read mode.
        •  
        • Flushing of all open tables before setting of read_only system variable is inherited from 5.1 implementation since this was the only possible approach to ensure that there isn't any pending write operations on open tables.
        •  
        • Start from version 5.5 and above such behaviour is guaranteed by the fact that we acquire global_read_lock before setting read_only flag. Since acquiring of global_read_lock is successful only when there isn't any active write operation then we can remove flushing of open tables from processing of SET GLOBAL READ_ONLY=1.
        •  
        • This modification changes the server behavior so that read locks held by other connections (LOCK TABLE ... READ) no longer will block attempts to enable read_only.

      • Revision #2502.546.76 Fri 2012-06-01 14:56:47 +0200
        • MDEV-304: Insufficient buffer allocation for Query_log_event
        • The constructor for Query_log_event allocated 2 bytes too few for extra space needed by Query cache. (Not sure if this is reproducible in practice, as there are often a couple of extra bytes allocated for unused string zero terminators, but better safe than sorry).
      • Revision #2502.546.75 Wed 2012-05-30 19:10:18 +0300
        • Fix for Bug #1006231
        • Analysis:
          • When a subquery that needs a temp table is executed during the prepare or optimize phase of the outer query, at the end of the subquery execution all the JOIN_TABs of the subquery are replaced by a new JOIN_TAB that selects from the temp table. However that temp table has no corresponding TABLE_LIST. Once EXPLAIN execution reaches its last phase, it tries to print the names of the subquery tables through its TABLE_LISTs, but in the case of this bug there is no such TABLE_LIST (it is NULL), hence a crash.
          •  
        • Solution:
          • The fix is to block subquery evaluation inside Item_func_like::fix_fields and Item_func_like::select_optimize() using the Item::is_expensive() test.

        • Fix Bug #1002079
        • Analysis:
          • The optimizer detects an empty result through constant table optimization. Then it calls return_zero_rows(), which in turns calls inderctly Item_maxmin_subselect::no_rows_in_result(). The latter method set "value=0", however "value" is pointer to Item_cache, and not just an integer value.
          •  
          • All of the Item_[maxmin | singlerow]_subselect::val_XXX methods does:
          •  
            • if (forced_const)
              • return value->val_real();
          •  
          • which of course crashes when value is a NULL pointer.
          •  
        • Solution:
          • When the optimizer discovers an empty result set, set Item_singlerow_subselect::value to a FALSE constant Item instead of NULL.

  • Revision #3426 Mon 2012-06-04 18:06:00 +0300
    • Fix Bug #1008487
    • Analysis:
      • The crash is a result of Item_cache_temporal::example not being set (it is NULL). It turns out that the value of Item_cache_temporal may be set directly by calling Item_cache_temporal::store_packed without ever setting the "example" of this Item_cache. Therefore the failing assertion is too narrow.
      •  
    • Solution:
      • Remove the assert.
      •  
      • In principle we could overwrite this method for Item_cache_temporal, but it doesn't make sense just for this assert.
