Description:
On occasions, we are getting this error both from the application writing to the master, as well as the slave:

Error 'Binary logging not possible. Message: Statement-based format required for this statement, but not allowed by this combination of engines' on query.

This problem is very intermittent, and not at all duplicable, which makes it ever so maddening. It is stress testing our monitoring though :)

This is happening with the innodb storage engine, which is what we use exclusively on these servers, so I don't quite understand the meaning of the error message.

Here is the high level of steps:

1. App creates 9 new tables for staging data to be loaded. All tables are InnoDB and created with option ROW_FORMAT=COMPACT.  Everytime a table is created, it appends an identifier to make a unique name for the table.
2. Data is inserted using INSERT statements to this new table.
3. The base tables are then populated from the staging table with SQL like this:
insert into creative_iobudget_monthly_local(buyer_entity_id,io_id,line_item_id,campaign_id,creative_id,adv_learn_type,is_adjustment,imps,clicks,amt_paid_to_seller,roi_value,ymdh,id) select buyer_entity_id,io_id,line_item_id,campaign_id,creative_id,adv_learn_type,is_adjustment,imps,clicks,amt_paid_to_seller,roi_value,date_format(ymdh, '%Y-%m-01 00:00:00'),id from creative_iobudget_g08081523 where load_attempt=1 order by ymdh,id on duplicate key update creative_iobudget_monthly_local.imps = creative_iobudget_monthly_local.imps + VALUES(imps),creative_iobudget_monthly_local.clicks = creative_iobudget_monthly_local.clicks + VALUES(clicks),creative_iobudget_monthly_local.amt_paid_to_seller = creative_iobudget_monthly_local.amt_paid_to_seller + VALUES(amt_paid_to_seller),creative_iobudget_monthly_local.roi_value =......

There are quite a few of these statements, all with a transaction (the create table is not)
4. After the transaction is committed, the tables are dropped

Here are the relevant innodb parameters from our config file:

innodb_additional_mem_pool_size = 20M
innodb_buffer_pool_size = 24000M
innodb_data_home_dir = /var/lib/mysql/inno
innodb_data_file_path = data:1G:autoextend
innodb_log_group_home_dir = /var/lib/mysql/log/inno
innodb_log_file_size = 2000M
innodb_log_files_in_group = 2
innodb_log_buffer_size = 8M
innodb_flush_log_at_trx_commit = 1
innodb_autoextend_increment = 32
#innodb_status_file
innodb_thread_concurrency = 8
innodb_lock_wait_timeout = 120
#innodb_force_recovery = 1
innodb_flush_method = O_DIRECT
innodb_rollback_on_timeout
#skip-innodb_doublewrite
#skip-innodb_adaptiv_hash_index
innodb_file_per_table
innodb_open_files = 20000

And for binary logging:
log-bin = /var/lib/mysql/log/bin/binlog
max_binlog_size = 250M
binlog-format = STATEMENT

How to repeat:
Not able to repeat on a consistent basis. Even on a slave that errors out with this message, we are able to start the slave and the transaction will complete successfully.

Thank you for the report.

I can not repeat same error message with only InnoDB tables: always get meaningful " 1598: Binary logging not possible. Message: Transaction level 'READ-UNCOMMITTED' in InnoDB is not safe for binlog mode 'STATEMENT'"

Please find a query which produces this error, find which TRANSACTION ISOLATION LEVEL you use when error occurs (SELECT @@tx_isolation;) and provide the query and output of SHOW CREATE TABLE for all underlying tables.
[28 Aug 2008 7:47] Partha Dutta
My default transaction level is REPEATABLE-READ.

Here is a sample of one of the SQL statements exactly like the failure we had. The only difference is the source table name:

insert into creative_iobudget_monthly_local(buyer_entity_id,io_id,line_item_id,campaign_id,creative_id,adv_learn_type,is_adjustment,imps,clicks,amt_paid_to_seller,roi_value,ymdh,id) select buyer_entity_id,io_id,line_item_id,campaign_id,creative_id,adv_learn_type,is_adjustment,imps,clicks,amt_paid_to_seller,roi_value,date_format(ymdh, '%Y-%m-01 00:00:00'),id from creative_iobudget_g08081223 where load_attempt=1 order by ymdh,id on duplicate key update creative_iobudget_monthly_local.imps = creative_iobudget_monthly_local.imps + VALUES(imps),creative_iobudget_monthly_local.clicks = creative_iobudget_monthly_local.clicks + VALUES(clicks),creative_iobudget_monthly_local.amt_paid_to_seller = creative_iobudget_monthly_local.amt_paid_to_seller + VALUES(amt_paid_to_seller),creative_iobudget_monthly_local.roi_value = creative_iobudget_monthly_local.roi_value + VALUES(roi_value);

This is the definition of creative_iobudget_g08081223:

Thank you for the feedback.

I still can not repeat described behavior. Please try current version 5.1.26-rc and if problem still exists provide error log file.
[5 Sep 2008 17:27] Partha Dutta
Still trying to find a way to reproduce this consistenly. Tried changing innodb_open_files from 20000 to 10000. The servers were okay for about a day, and then the slaves stopped with the same error message.

One thing to add...During the course of data inserts/updates 9 different innodb tables are created as staging tables, and later dropped. Perhaps something with open files causing the issue?

I will also try looking at 5.1.26 as well.
[14 Sep 2008 16:01] Valeriy Kravchuk
Please, try to repeat with a newer version, 5.1.28, and inform about the results.
[1 Oct 2008 20:02] Partha Dutta
Trying 5.1.28 right now to reproduce the problem. I would still like to understand when these error messages occur, or what triggers them.
[2 Oct 2008 22:42] Partha Dutta
This is still happening after upgrading the server to version 5.1.28. This happened on the slave server:

Thank you for the feedback.

We need some time to think about how to consistently repeat the problem/what to check also.
[18 Oct 2008 0:37] Partha Dutta
Repeatable test case below. Note this happens with innodb tables that are partitioned!

Start up a mysql server : mysqld --log-bin --binlog-format=STATEMENT --console

Create a partitioned table:
CREATE TABLE test1
(
  id smallint not null,
  primary key (id)
) engine=innodb
partition by range (id)
(
  partition p1 values less than (2),
  partition p2 values less than (4),
  partition p3 values less than (10)
);

flush tables;
insert into test1 values (1),(2),(3);
quit;

In another concurrent session:
set transaction isolation level read committed;
select * from test1;

Start a new session and connect to db:
mysql> set transaction isolation level repeatable read;
Query OK, 0 rows affected (0.00 sec)

mysql> insert into test1 values (8);
ERROR 1598 (HY000): Binary logging not possible. Message: Statement-based format
 required for this statement, but not allowed by this combination of engines
mysql>
mysql> flush tables;
Query OK, 0 rows affected (0.00 sec)

mysql> insert into test1 values (1);
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.00 sec)

It appears that this statement will fail until flush tables is called.

It is belived that the culprit is in how the table flags are set. In the case of a pure innodb table (non partitioned) then tx_isolation of the current thread is used to determine if statement based format is allowed.  With the partition handler, the table flag is checked only on table open. So if the very first statement that runs after a table is opened is a SELECT statement, then no insert, delete, update statements will work.

Thank you for the feedback.

I still can not repeat described behavior.

You wrote:

select * from test1;

Start a new session and connect to db:

Query OK, 0 rows affected (0.00 sec)

mysql> insert into test1 values (8);

Just to be sure: do you issue "set transaction isolation level repeatable read;" and "insert into test1 values (8);" in the same session?
[19 Oct 2008 10:14] Partha Dutta
The trick is that the table file handle should not be open:

SESSION #1
----------
1. FLUSH TABLES;
2. SET TRANSACTION ISOLATION READ COMMITTED;
3. SELECT * FROM test1;

Do not close this session to the db. Start a new concurrent session:

SESSION #2
----------
1. SET TRANSACTION ISOLATION LEVEL REPEATABLE READ;
2. INSERT INTO test1 VALUES(7);

Session 2 will fail. When session #1 has to open the table, the partition handler code will call the underlying storage engines table_flags() method and cache the state in the m_table_flags var.

I am proposing a patch for the partition engine so that it does not cache the table_flags:

Thank you for the feedback.

Finally verified as described.

Test case for MySQL test suite:

$cat bug39084.test
--source include/have_log_bin.inc
--source include/have_innodb.inc

set session transaction isolation level repeatable read;

CREATE TABLE test1
(
  id smallint not null,

) engine=innodb
partition by range (id)
(
  partition p1 values less than (2),
  partition p2 values less than (4),
  partition p3 values less than (10)
);

flush tables;
insert into test1 values (1),(2),(3);

FLUSH TABLES;
SET TRANSACTION ISOLATION LEVEL READ COMMITTED;
SELECT * FROM test1;

connect (addconroot, localhost, root,,);
connection addconroot;

SET TRANSACTION ISOLATION LEVEL REPEATABLE READ;
INSERT INTO test1 VALUES(7);

This shows that table flags is not static between open and close for a handler, which partitioning assumes, the patch is in the right direction, but I will try to remove the m_table_flags completely, since it cannot be trusted.

I will instead enforce that all partition handlers have the same table flags when initializing partitions and when opening a partitioned table, and always use the first partition for checking the table flags.
[24 Oct 2008 7:39] Mats Kindahl
Note that InnoDB decides table flags on a per-statement basis, so caching the flags inside partition is not a good idea, since they might change with the next statement.

Also, the table flags are only requested at the beginning of the statement, and the server caches the value for the duration of the statement, so there is no need for the partition engine to handle the caching internally.

      Bug#39084: Getting intermittent errors with statement-based binary logging
      
      Problem was that partitioning cached the table flags.
      These flags could change due to TRANSACTION LEVEL changes.
      
      Solution was to remove the cache and always return the table flags
      from the first partition (if the handler was initialized).

Hello,

I have the same problem over here running 
- windows vista 64
- mysql 5.1.29
- odbc 5.15

It used to work running earlier server versions I assume that was e.g. 5.1.28

The application is adding records towards a table, when this happens. I do not know yet if it hapens first record or not, but it does occur almost immediately.

Do not had time yet to see if I can work arround this, or that I have to go back to 5.2.28,

Sincerely,

Louis

Can you please indicate when a windows 64 binnary including the fix will become available?

Unless this is within days I have to go back to 5.1.28
