MySQL (InnoDB) setzt einen globalen lock auf alle Datenbanken
wenn man ein “DROP DATABASE testdb” Statement ausführt. Bei 100- 200ms pro Tabelle
kann es bei größeren Datenbanken zu einem Stillstand der Abarbeitung aller Anfragen
von mehreren Sekunden kommen.

Dies kann man mit folgendem kleinem bash script nachstellen.


while true
    mysql -uroot -p****** anotherdb -e "SELECT NOW(), id FROM table LIMIT 1"
    sleep 1

Während das script läuft, kann man dann in bspw. einer 2. Konsole
das “DROP DATABASE irgendeinedb” Statement ausführen.
Man kann dann in der ersten Konsole sehen das die Abarbeitung der Anfragen

Nachfolgende Prozedur kann Abhilfe schaffen.
(Man muss die Prozedur an eine Datenbank binden,
am besten nicht an die, die man löschen möchte.)

Die Prozedur löscht erst alle Tabellen der DB einzeln und erst am Ende
wird auf die quasi leere DB ein DROP DATABASE Statement angewendet.


CALL drop_database(‘irgendeinedb’);



CREATE PROCEDURE drop_database(IN _database VARCHAR(60))


FROM information_schema.TABLES



OPEN _cur;
FETCH _cur INTO _table;

SET @QUERY = CONCAT('DROP TABLE ', _database, '.', _table);

EXECUTE query;


CLOSE _cur;



EXECUTE query;

16:59 TodoInTX tanj: many people have contributed to getting us to where we are today.
16:59 domas they think I’m trolling though and want to ban me
17:00 domas and all I do is careful benchmarking :)
17:00 Isotopp i have a SELECT … FROM t WHERE (room_name_id, language_code ) IN ( ( 153701, “en”) ) yields in a Illegal mix of collations (latin1_swedish_ci,IMPLICIT) and (utf8_general_ci,COERCIBLE) for operation ‘=’
17:00 CorticalStack with perl pack and unpack functions you don’t really need rdbms anyway.
17:00 TodoInTX hehe
17:00 thumbs domas: to be fair, not knowing you, you could come out as a troll.
17:00 Isotopp but SELECT … FROM t WHERE `room_name_id`=153701 AND `language_code` = “en”; works just fine
17:00 tanj TodoInTX: I know. I’m just jumping on the monty bandwagon :=)
17:00 Isotopp is this a mysql tuple equivalency processing problem again?
17:01 domas isotopp: this is coerciveness issue
17:01 thumbs Isotopp: check the collation on both columns.
17:01 Server spetrunia (n=spetruni@ hat den Kanal betreten.
17:01 domas isotopp: but probably a bug too
17:01 Isotopp domas: language_code is a latin1 column, and i am on a SET NAMES utf8 connection
17:01 domas isotopp: probably coerciveness doesn’t work that well with IN(())
17:01 Isotopp domas: also, IN ( ( 153701, _latin1 “en”) ) works fine
17:02 domas it assumes that whole ((),(),()) set can have different charsets
17:02 tanj implicit cast in the 2nd case, prolly
17:02 Isotopp domas: but it is unclear to me why the WHERE … AND … works, whereas the IN (()) does not
17:02 domas isotopp: ^^^

17:28 domas montywi: MySQL separately from InnoDB does not either
17:29 salle montywi: I do have my own company Salle LTD. Do you say I can certainly manage MySQL better than Oracle?
17:29 Therion montywi: MySQL without that engine does not usefully compete with Oracle
17:29 MLord montywi: if Oracle had killed InnoDB or revoked the license than MySQL would NOT compete in any real way
17:29 Therion montywi: Otherwise, you wouldn’t have spent the last however many years on Maria
17:29 fission6 oracle is going to own MySql :(
17:29 salle montywi: You know me and know I have no interest in killing it.
17:29 domas and falcon!
17:29 lng hi! is it possible to use foreign key constraint to delete data in child tables if parent row is deleted?
17:29 MLord montywi: so MySQL only supposedly competes with Oracle because they’ve let it. Ironic isn’t it?
17:29 Therion lng: yes
17:29 domas lng: cascade
17:30 fission6 SixThreeOh: show slave status; ?

17:33 xzilla fission6: i think i have done it both ways
17:33 xzilla fission6: but most recent was different db nodes
17:33 montywi MLord: No, MySQL competes with Oracle because we are in the same market. Oracle buying InnoDB didn’t change that (We had a contract for many years that allows us to continue to sell licenses)
17:33 Server ajm ( hat den Kanal betreten.
17:33 nils_ montywi: with no way for Oracle to kill InnoDB?
17:33 fission6 you think heh? my question being from a mysql how do i make it transparent to developers to write queries and have them execute on the right db nodes within a sharded achetcture
17:33 MLord montywi: Our original license agreement ended AFTER they bought Innobase. You know that!

17:34 domas montywi: for how many years?
17:34 SixThreeOh tanj thanks.
17:34 MLord montywi: at the very least they could have let it idle or die, which they didn’t.
17:34 montywi If the would stopped developing it, then MySQL could have caused a fork
17:34 xzilla domas: well yes, you can do it how skype did it, but I dont think there is a way to do it in mysql (not with any level of complex app anyway)

17:35 montywi domas: you mean licenses? For 4 years, but they extended the contract after negotiations with us
17:35 xzilla montywi: istm that innodb has actually seen more development than any other table engine between the time oracle purchased it and now
17:35 montywi MLord: they used InnoDb to stop us from growing, and they where very successful with that
17:36 Leithal xzilla: that is true
17:36 montywi xzilla: no
17:36 Leithal balls
17:36 Therion montywi: We grew enormously after their purchase. You’re not even playing in reality, here.
17:36 xzilla montywi: mysql grew under Sun, how can you say they stopped you from growing?!?
17:36 MLord montywi: how so? that makes no sense
17:36 montywi All the new storage engines, PBXT, Calpoint, Infobright is doing much more
17:36 Therion No trolling here

17:36 Therion Take it somewhere else

17:37 MLord montywi: yeah, they’re doing much more… ok

Der PRIMARY KEY `Id` ist per Definition UNIQUE, dennoch wird das DISTINCT vom Query OPTIMIZER
bei der Ausführung des Query nicht ignoriert.
Das schlägt sich natürlich erheblich auf die Ausführungszeit.

| count(DISTINCT Id) |
|                    71301 |
1 row in set (0.68 sec)
| count(*) |
|    71301 |
1 row in set (0.03 sec)

Das Problem besteht zumindest noch in Version 5.0.32

| VERSION()                |
| 5.0.32-Debian_7etch3-log |

Um die Ergebnismenge doch noch zu verfeinern (MBR Problem)
bzw. den Abstand der gefundenen Ergebnisse zum Ursprungspunkt anzuzeigen hilft folgende



	DECLARE rlat1, rlat2, rlon1, rlon2 DOUBLE;

	SET rlat1 = RADIANS(lat1),
		rlon1 = RADIANS(lon1),
		rlat2 = RADIANS(lat2),
		rlon2 = RADIANS(lon2);

		(SIN(rlat2)*SIN(rlat1)) +
	) * EARTH, 0), 2);



Geo Koordinaten Umkreis Suche unter Verwendung von Spatial (R-Tree) Indizes
und der Mysql Geometry Funktionen.

Für die Suche wird eine Tabelle mit folgender oder ähnlicher Struktur benötigt:
Dump incl. Testdaten (geo.sql)

   `id` int(10) unsigned NOT NULL auto_increment,
   `coordinate` geometry NOT NULL,
   `zip` int(5) unsigned zerofill NOT NULL,
   PRIMARY KEY  (`id`),
   SPATIAL KEY `coordinate` (`coordinate`),
   KEY `zip` (`zip`)

Die folgende SQL Function bekommt die Geographische Länge und Breite, den Umkreisradius in KM und die Anzahl
der Ecken des Umkreises (Genauigkeit) übergeben. Als Rückgabe liefert die Funktion ein MySQL GEOMETRY Object
welches auf die Tabelle `geo` angewendet werden kann.




IF (edges<3 || edges>360 || radius>500) THEN

SET result=CONCAT(lat+radius/111.12,' ',lon,',');

WHILE (i<edges)
    SET c=RADIANS(360/edges*i);
    SET a=lat+COS(c)*radius/111.12;
    SET b=lon+SIN(c)*radius/(COS(RADIANS(lat + COS(c)*radius/111.12/111.12))*111.12);
    SET result=CONCAT(result,a,' ',b, ',');
    SET i=i+1;

RETURN GEOMFROMTEXT(CONCAT('POLYGON((',result,lat+radius/111.12,' ',lon,'))'));


Der Query in dem die Function GEOPOLYGON() verwendet wird, liefert
als Ergebnis eine Liste mit und
Im Funktionsaufruf kann Umkreis und in der WHERE Bedingung des sub- selects die Postleitzahl
des Mittelpunktes vom Umkreis definiert werden.

	id,	zip

		GEOPOLYGON(X(coordinate),Y(coordinate), 5, 12)
	FROM geo
	WHERE zip = 06116 LIMIT 1

MySQL implementiert die Funktion CONTAINS() unter anderen zurzeit noch nicht entsprechend der Spezifikation. Die, die implementiert werden, geben dasselbe Ergebnis wie die entsprechenden MBR-basierten Funktionen zurück.

MBR steht für “minimum bounding rectangle” (kleinstes umschließendes Rechteck).
Das berechnete Polygon welches die GEOPOLYGON Funktion zurück liefert ist also eigentlich nur das kleinstmögliche Rechteck, zumindest solange bis MySQL die Funktionen entsprechend implementiert hat, was gerade so um das Polygon herum passt.
