Release highlights

Percona XtraDB Cluster is based on Percona Server for MySQL. Find a complete list of improvements and bug fixes in the Percona Server for MySQL 8.0.32-24 (2023-03-20) release notes.

Percona decided to revert the following MySQL bug fix:

The data and the GTIDs backed up by mysqldump were inconsistent when the options --single-transaction and --set-gtid-purged=ON were both used. It was because in between the transaction started by mysqldump and the fetching of GTID_EXECUTED, GTIDs on the server could have increased already. With this fixed, a FLUSH TABLES WITH READ LOCK is performed before the fetching of GTID_EXECUTED to ensure its value is consistent with the snapshot taken by mysqldump.

The MySQL fix also added a requirement when using –single-transaction and executing FLUSH TABLES WITH READ LOCK for the RELOAD privilege. (MySQL bug #109701, MySQL bug #105761)

The Percona Server version of the mysqldump utility, in some modes, can be used with MySQL Server. This utility provides a temporary workaround for the “additional RELOAD privilege” limitation introduced by Oracle MySQL Server 8.0.32.

For more information, see the Percona Performance Blog A Workaround for the “RELOAD/FLUSH_TABLES privilege required” Problem When Using Oracle mysqldump 8.0.32.

Improvements and bug fixes introduced by Oracle for MySQL 8.0.32 and included in Percona Server for MySQL are the following:

  • A replica can add a Generated Invisible Primary Keys(GIPK) to any InnoDB table. To achieve this behavior, the GENERATE value is added as a possible value for the CHANGE REPLICATION SOURCE TO statement’s REQUIRE_TABLE_PRIMARY_KEY_CHECK option.

  • The REQUIRE_TABLE_PRIMARY_KEY_CHECK = GENERATE option can be used on a per-channel basis.

  • Setting sql_generate_invisible_primary_key on the source is ignored by a replica because this variable is not replicated. This behavior is inherited from the previous releases.

  • An upgrade from 8.0.28 caused undetectable problems, such as server exit and corruption.

  • A fix for after an upgrade, all columns added with ALGORITHM=INSTANT materialized and have version=0 for any new row inserted. Now, a column added with ALGORITHM=INSTANT fails if the maximum possible size of a row exceeds the row size limit, so that all new rows with materialized ALGORITHM=INSTANT columns are within row size limit. (Bug #34558510)

  • After a drop, adding a specific column using the INSTANT algorithm could cause a data error and a server exit. (Bug #34122122)

  • An online rebuild DDL no longer crashes after a column is added with ALGORITHM=INSTANT. Thank you Qingda Hu for reporting this bug. (Bug #33788578, Bug #106279)

Bug fixes

  • PXC-3936: State transfer with disabled SSL in wsrep_provider_options option crashed the Receiver and Donor nodes.

  • PXC-4162: When doing a rolling upgrade from 5.7 to 8.0, wsrep_cluster_size was 0.

  • PXC-4163: The pxc_strict_mode option did not detect version mismatch.
