Description:
MySQL Serevr crushes while prepareing data.

The data are generated by DBGEN (TPC-H data generator).
*http://www.tpc.org/tpch/
(I had to add "-D_LARGEFILE_SOURCE -D_FILE_OFFSET_BITS=64"
  to CFLAGS in Makefile for Largefile support.)

shell> dbgen -s 3
(generate data (ScaleFactor=3))

I tried several patterns.
--------------------------------------
(create table) -> (LOAD) -> (add PKEY) -> (add FKEY) : No problems
(create table) -> (add PKEY) -> (add FKEY) -> (LOAD) : *crushed at LOAD
(create table) -> (add PKEY) -> (LOAD) -> (add FKEY) : *crushed at FKEY

There is 100% reproducibility in my environment...

Hi!

This is really strange. When you create a new InnoDB installation, it should print:

"
InnoDB: Doublewrite buffer not found: creating new
InnoDB: Doublewrite buffer created
"

Those lines are missing from your .err log!

Could it be that another mysqld server was running at the same time, and it stamped the doublewrite buffer magic number to the page in the ibdata file?

If you create a new InnoDB installation, does it then print that it is creating the doublewrite buffer?

Regards,

Heikki

Hi!

Ok, I see. You have probably specified

skip-innodb-doublewrite

in your my.cnf.

Normally, you should use the doublewrite buffer. That new option is currently mostly used in benchmarking.

I am assigning Vadim to this. I think the doublewrite buffer SHOULD be created when a new InnoDB installation is created. The disable operation should just skip its use.

Regards,

Heikki
