Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 866781
Server not throwing "Packet too large" error if max_allowed_packet >= 16M
Last modified: 2013-06-27 05:26:02 EDT
Description of problem:
In MySQL Server 5.1.52 a packet is not rejected if it is over the server's max_allowed_packet bytes and max_allowed_packet is set to 16M or higher.
If the server's max_allowed_packet is set to anything lower than 16M it behaves correctly.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
$ cat /etc/redhat-release
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server release 6.1 (Santiago)
Upstream report: http://bugs.mysql.com/bug.php?id=58887
According to it, it's fixed in 5.1.55, 5.5.9, 5.6.2 versions.
Would be possible to backport this patch to 5.1.52 or is there a planned update for the MySQL component in 6.1 version?
While I've not actually tried to test this, the upstream report says it's fixed in 5.1.55 and later, so the problem should be gone as of RHEL6.2. Why haven't you updated?
This request was not resolved in time for the current release.
Red Hat invites you to ask your support representative to
propose this request, if still desired, for consideration in
the next release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
Closing as per comment #2, this bug should be fixed in RHEL-6.2 or later. Feel free to re-open if it isn't.
