5.0.77 / 5.0.82 -build16 Percona binaries

 | June 11, 2009 |  Posted In: Percona Software


Dear community,

We are pleased to announce the build16 of MySQL server® with Percona patches.

Since the build13 there was a couple of customer specific releases, which explains cutover in numbering and a pause between the builds. Also we prepared build for both 5.0.77 and 5.0.82 versions.

Since that time new patches were added:

  • profiling_slow.patch
  • This patch adds information from SHOW PROFILE to query information in slow.log output.
    profiling_server. This variable ( ON / OFF ) enables profiling of all queries (in all connections).
    profiling_use_getrusage. This variable ( ON / OFF ) enables usage of getrusage function in profiling.
    Be careful, enabling profiling_server may cause performance degradation, especially with profiling_use_getrusage.

  • innodb_extra_rseg.patch
  • innodb_extra_rsegments. The number of extra user rollback segments created when new db is created.
    New information_schema table innodb_rseg shows information about all rollback segments

  • innodb_thread_concurrency_timer_based.patch

This patch provides the configuration variable backport from MySQL 5.4.

Fixed bugs:

  • Thanks for sticking with the 5.0 release of MySQL! I’m working on switching to 5.1, but it takes time to test and validate everything.

  • 5.0.82 debian server packages are broken, they do not contain /usr/share/mysql directory structure.
    Please change maintainer field, as this package is maintained by percona.
    What happened with highperf packages?

    Anyway, good work!

  • I don’t know if this is normal, but when i try to download srpm from:


    and highperf version, webserver report me a “forbidden”.
    It’s possible to restore normal download?
    Thank you

  • Building MySQL-percona-b16-5.0.82-0.rhel5.src.rpm fails because userstatv2.patch can’t be applied cleanly:

    patching file sql/mysqld.cc
    Hunk #10 FAILED at 5081.
    Hunk #11 succeeded at 6537 (offset -12 lines).
    1 out of 11 hunks FAILED — saving rejects to file sql/mysqld.c

    Here’s hunk #10:
    @@ -5056,6 +5081,7 @@

    And there is no OPT_PROFILING_USE_GETRUSAGE in mysqld.cc, just OPT_PROFILING.

    Next patch which fails is:

    Patch #12 (innodb_io_pattern.patch):

    And at that point I gave up.
