Description:
please, increase max_sp_recursion_depth up to 65535. Now max value is 255.

How to repeat:
set global max_sp_recursion_depth = 1024;

select @@max_sp_recursion_depth;
--> return 255

Thank you for a reasonable feature request.

Is there a plan to increase the maximum possible value?
[9 Aug 2010 13:12] Markus Schmid
No change in here?
Please increase that value, 255 is not enough for complex routines.

Any progress on this? I can't imagine it would be that hard. 255 is simply too small for complex routines or large datasets. For instance we use recursion to calculate and store nested set organizational tree but are stuck at 255 nodes.  Any modern hardware should have no problems with 65k+ as recommended.

I completely agree, please can you look to increase the maximum possible value?

Please increase it to 65k, 255 is not enough
