Full log here:

Note: This is a UNIV_DEBUG only crash, release builds shouldn't crash for this. However, it needs to be checked why this may be happening.

a) Adding Percona Server as well since it seems to be related to that.

b) Seems that assert was removed in but added back in

c) Also note, this is a hard to trigger bug.

a) Sysbench cmdline:

sysbench --test=./oltp.lua --db-driver=mysql --mysql-engine-trx=yes --mysql-table-engine=innodb --mysql-socket=/pxc/datadir/pxc.sock --mysql-user=root --mysql-password=test --oltp-table-size=30000 prepare


sysbench --test=./oltp.lua --db-driver=mysql --mysql-engine-trx=yes --mysql-table-engine=innodb --mysql-socket=/pxc/datadir/pxc.sock --mysql-user=root --mysql-password=test --oltp-table-size=30000 --num-threads=32 --init-rng=on --max-requests=0 --oltp-auto-inc=off --max-time=3000 --max-requests=100000 run

b) I wonder if this is related to , however, this should have been fixed in 5.5.31 (I am running this on merge of PS 5.5.31).

I have been able to crash it under gdb. Attached bt and 'thread
apply all bt full' (latter is really comprehensive) outputs. It also has the log.

However, after analysis and from crash, it looks like:

#2 0x00000000008772d2 in row_sel_store_mysql_rec (
     mysql_rec=mysql_rec@entry=0x7fff8800ff10 "\377\344:", prebuilt=prebuilt@entry=0x7fff880107d8,
     rec=rec@entry=0x7fffd42fa6af "", rec_clust=rec_clust@entry=0, offsets=0x7fffac0efdb0)
     at /media/Tintin/Work/code/percona-xtradb-cluster/release-5.5.31/Percona-Server/storage/innobase/row/row0sel.c:2724
 #3 0x000000000087c565 in row_search_for_mysql (buf=0x7fff8800ff10 "\377\344:", mode=2,
     prebuilt=0x7fff880107d8, match_mode=1, direction=0)

rec is empty in #2.

a)row_sel_try_search_shortcut_for_mysql called by row_search_for_mysql does a:

 if (rec_get_deleted_flag(rec, dict_table_is_comp(index->table))) {


b) row_search_for_mysql also checks: ut_ad(!rec_get_deleted_flag(rec, comp));

   switch (row_sel_try_search_shortcut_for_mysql(
     &rec, prebuilt, &offsets, &heap,
     &mtr)) {
   case SEL_FOUND:
    ut_a(0 == cmp_dtuple_rec(search_tuple,
        rec, offsets));
    /* At this point, rec is protected by
    a page latch that was acquired by
    The latch will not be released until
    mtr_commit(&mtr). */
    ut_ad(!rec_get_deleted_flag(rec, comp));

    if (!row_sel_store_mysql_rec(buf, prebuilt,
            rec, FALSE,
            offsets)) {

c) Finally row_sel_store_mysql_rec also checks ut_ad(!rec_get_deleted_flag(rec, rec_offs_comp(offsets))):

 ut_ad(rec_offs_validate(rec, NULL, offsets));
 ut_ad(!rec_get_deleted_flag(rec, rec_offs_comp(offsets)));

Interesting pat is that: ut_ad(!rec_get_deleted_flag(rec, comp));
in b is not triggered rather c after that is triggered.

Also, note that this is not that hard to trigger but required
sometime to be triggered. (30-40 min of sysbench)

summary: - Crash during sysbench
+ Crash during sysbench with debug build

I've tried to crash -debug builds of upstream MySQL 5.5.32 and Percona Server 5.6.11 on Fedora and Debian 7 for a long time but with no luck. How many CPUs/cores do you have on the box where this crash/assertion failure is repeatable?

I need to test the crash with 5.5.32 builds, however, note that
this happens after a high uptime with sysbench (on a 2 node cluster). The CPUs on my
laptop is 8 but it doesn't matter in this case I think. Also, no
need to test 5.6.11 or 5.6 series (since PXC is not on 5.6 yet).

Pasting the log here (since jenkins rotates):

Another crash Log:

This time (after latest fixes), it doesn't crash as much but here it crashed at different but related location.

Since there is no debug build-based sysbench of PS, I will need to run that locally and/or jenkins to investigate further.

Not seeing the crash anymore:

Need a few more runs to verify before closing.

The issue seems to repeat only when innodb_flush_method is default and not O_DIRECT. This is due to running the tests on VM, the VM doesn't handle the fsync correctly, this can happen due to dual caching on VM and on host. So this shouldn't occur normally.

Hence, closing the issue for now. (as fix committed since a merge fix was fixed there)

I saw a crash with O_DIRECT, switching this to "In Progress", need to investigate that further (whether due to device or due to a real bug).

Changed in percona-xtradb-cluster:
status: Fix Committed → In Progress

I tested with PS debug build and so far I have not been able to reproduce this (I have to test with jenkins further to confirm), so the issue may be in wsrep patches. (unless this is not reproduceable with vanilla mysql)
