during stability tests MySQL Cluster failed with the following bug reports:

How to repeat:
1. Run MySQL cluster on two physical nodes with 1 data node on each physical node (here hostnames are pelton1/pelton2)
2. Run some test applications on pelton1 (first node)
3. Repeatedly kill -9 on ndbmtd (also during its recovery restart)
4. Error occurs

Full logs have been uploaded to bug-data-44952.tar.bz2 on FTP server.

I forgot some details:

The kill -9 was done on second node, i.e. pelton2 here.

The bug might be related or identical to http://bugs.mysql.com/bug.php?id=42564 reported some month ago. Suggest to close the old one and continue here if its the same issue.

Hi Guido, 

I've now manage to produce a reproducible test case!
The bug occurs when a GCI marker is written in the first page of a mega-byte,
and that node is later killed during restart after having processed that page
(marker) but before completing it's LCP. roughly :-)

I've also written a fix, but would like to run our internal regression suite
before sending it to you. This takes ~24 hours, so if all goes well, i'll send you a patch on monday morning (or sunday evening)

Is this good enough for you?


ps. bug#42564 is a duplicate of this.

Hello Jonas,

> Is this good enough for you?

yes, this is fine with us, we shall wait until Monday morning for the fix.
Please post the patch either here or send direct email, whatever you prefer.

Thank you for providing the patch.  e have updated to the latest bazaar version (including the patch). Tests will most likely be continued tomorrow. We will report the outcome here provided the bug report is not closed earlier (in this case, we will open a new bug report if the bug can still be reproduced).

Documented bugfix in the NDB-6.2.18, 6.3.26, and 7.0.6 changelogs as follows:

        In some cases, master takeover immediately following a sucessful
        node restart caused the restarted node to send back incorrect
        global checkpoint data. The resulting (nonexistent) GCI was
        saved to system files, so that if the node were restarted again,
        it would try to recover using this invalid GCI.
[26 May 2009 9:13] Jonas Oreland
Jon: your description is 0.3% correct.
The bug fixed is what is decribed in my comment from 22 May 11:33
[26 May 2009 9:22] Jon Stephens
Updated changelog entry as suggested by Jonas:

        When a data node had written its GCI marker to the first page of
        a megabyte, and that node was later killed during restart after
        having processed that page (marker) but before completing a LCP,
        the data node could fail with filesystem errors.
