Description Levente Farkas 2012-07-21 11:21:29 UTC
when i try to dump our current database i always got errors and crash in mysqld log files after a simple:
mysqldump --all-databases
where one of the database is google maps (provides by google).


upstream bug: http://bugs.mysql.com/bug.php?id=65971

here is the log from mysql:
120721 13:13:50 mysqld_safe Starting mysqld daemon with databases from /var/lib/mysql
120721 13:13:51  InnoDB: Initializing buffer pool, size = 8.0M

This could be because you hit a bug. It is also possible that this binary
or one of the libraries it was linked against is corrupt, improperly built,
or misconfigured. This error can also be caused by malfunctioning hardware.
We will try our best to scrape up some info that will hopefully help
diagnose the problem, but since we have already crashed, 
something is definitely wrong and this may fail.

It is possible that mysqld could use up to 
key_buffer_size + (read_buffer_size + sort_buffer_size)*max_threads = 572953 K  bytes of memory
Hope that's ok; if not, decrease some variables in the equation.

Attempting backtrace. You can use the following information to find out
where mysqld died. If you see no messages after this, something went
terribly wrong...

Thank you for reporting. I've gone through the discussion at [1], but I'm still not able to reproduce such failure. Are you able to reproduce it with the test case attached at [1] on a fresh datadir? If so, are there any other steps required or does it fail even on a fresh and empty DB on your machine?

Comment 3 Levente Farkas 2012-07-27 11:33:25 UTC
it's always happened on our server. and even mysql (ie. oracle) can reproduce it (as you can see in the above bz). unfortunately the database is the commercial google maps api so i assume i can't send it to you.

anyway we try to drop the database and import it then the same happened:-(

so currently either mysql fix it and gives a patch or we'd have to update from 5.1 to 5.5 in which this's already fixed.

Comment 4 Honza Horak 2012-07-27 12:33:54 UTC
Is it possible to provide your my.cnf file, please?

Comment 6 Honza Horak 2012-07-31 16:04:32 UTC
Thank you for the my.cnf file. Unfortunately, I'm still not able to reproduce the failure. I believe a better backtrace could help, so I'd like to ask you for the following:

1. install mysql-debuginfo package if not done already
2. run mysqld with "--core-file" option (otherwise no coredump is generated)
3. generate a backtrace using the coredump file and e.g. gdb's "bt full" command 

Please, be aware that the coredump file is usually very large and check the backtrace and hide all sensitive data if needed.

Comment 7 Honza Horak 2012-08-01 15:35:44 UTC
Created attachment 601772 [details]

I've finally reproduced it, using:
$ valgrind --malloc-fill=ff /usr/libexec/mysqld --core-file

and it is also possible using:
MALLOC_PERTURB_=250 /usr/libexec/mysqld --core-file

The attached file is a coredump file.

Comment 8 Levente Farkas 2012-08-03 20:38:38 UTC
mysql has a fix for it. dare i ask for an src.rpm from rh?

The way to get the priority of this bug raised to the point where it might get fixed in RHEL6 (without any upstream fix) is to open an issue through your regular customer support contact.
