long transaction of MySQL lock series (9)

Posted by hostseller on Wed, 29 May 2019 19:08:39 +0200


Recently, at 05:00 a.m., I always get warnings from the SQL firewall:

group_name id user host db command time info state
BASE 1059712468 xx xx.xx.xx.xx aea Query 34 UPDATE approve SET operator = 0', operator_name ='system', comment ='departure', status ='1'WHERE (id = 48311') updating

When I first saw this data, the first reaction was probably the affected SQL. I had no time to pay attention to it, but after several early morning warnings, I had to analyze it in depth.

  • Symptom characteristics
  1. Primary key update
  2. The status is updating
  3. Execution time is more than 30 seconds
  4. command is query

All this seems particularly normal.

Two, environment

  • MySQL version
mysql  Ver 14.14 Distrib 5.6.16, for linux-glibc2.5 (x86_64) using  EditLine wrapper

  • Table structure
CREATE TABLE `approve` (
  `reim_id` int(11) NOT NULL DEFAULT '0' ,
  `user_name` varchar(20) NOT NULL DEFAULT '',
  `user_ids` varchar(100) NOT NULL DEFAULT '',
  `user_email` text COMMENT 'Be used for mail',
  `status` tinyint(1) NOT NULL DEFAULT '0' ,
  `stagesub` smallint(3) NOT NULL DEFAULT '0' ,
  `stage` smallint(3) NOT NULL DEFAULT '0' ,
  `flag` tinyint(1) NOT NULL DEFAULT '0' ,
  `operator` int(11) NOT NULL DEFAULT '0' ,
  `operator_name` varchar(20) NOT NULL DEFAULT '',
  `comment` text,
  `cs_userid` int(11) NOT NULL DEFAULT '0' ,
  `cs_status` tinyint(4) NOT NULL DEFAULT '0' ,
  `is_deficit` tinyint(1) NOT NULL DEFAULT '1' ,
  `approve_type` tinyint(4) NOT NULL DEFAULT '1',
  PRIMARY KEY (`id`),
  KEY `list` (`user_ids`,`status`),
  KEY `next` (`flag`,`status`),
  KEY `detail` (`reim_id`),
  KEY `ix_userid` (`cs_userid`)

III. Analytical process

  • Analysis of SQL statement itself
1. This statement is normal, but also the primary key update, execution plan everything is normal.
2. State in show process list, command=Query, state=updating

  • Manual execution

No problem, it's done in an instant.

dba> UPDATE approve SET `operator` = '0',`operator_name` = 'system',`comment` = 'Quit',`status` = '1' WHERE (`id` = '49384');
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.00 sec)
Rows matched: 1  Changed: 1  Warnings: 0
  • Possible causes of the problem
1. Will the problem of splicing SQL statements cause full-table scanning updates in the early morning when SQL has special characters?
    1.1 In order to solve this problem, we simulate N times and print out all special characters. This problem is eliminated.

2. Server pressure problem, is it possible that in the early morning io, cpu pressure is particularly high, resulting in slow updating?
    2.1 Looking at the monitoring at that time, all indicators are normal, so it is also excluded.

3. The database itself, MySQL has a bug?
    3.1 No bug information has been found in this area.

4. Lock problem, the SQL statement was locked at that time?
    4.1 No lock s are seen in the show process list.

  • Lock-related exclusion
1. Initially, all troubleshooting came from the monitoring system and show processlist,Then check that the lock artifact is not in use, that is show engine innodb status \G

2. The following conclusions can be drawn from the above fragment information

    2.1 UPDATE approve Statement waiting for primary key index record lock,lock_mode X locks rec but not gap , space id 746 page no 624, Recorded as primary key 49384 row
    2.2 TRANSACTION 51055827249, ACTIVE 20 sec , This transaction lasts 20 seconds.
    2.3 TRANSACTION 51055825099, ACTIVE 21 sec , This transaction lasts for 21 seconds, and according to this information, it is likely that it is held by the transaction. UPDATE approve Needed record lock
    2.4 TRANSACTION 51055825099, 1 row lock(s) , Based on this information, the transaction can be further inferred. thread id 1060025172 Hold the record lock.

3. Unfortunately, I don't know what it is. SQL Statement that has been executed

  • Verification
1. How to verify the above inference?

2. How to find which SQL holds locks?

3. First, let's start with the table and find out which tables are written to SQL.
    Through Performance Schema, two suspicious-looking SQL s were discovered

digest sql count db dbgroup date
0c95e7f2105d7a3e655b8b4462251bf2 UPDATE approve SET operator = ? , operator_name = ? , comment = ? , status = ? WHERE ( id = ? ) 15 xx BASE 20170829
591226ca0ece89fe74bc6894ad193d71 UPDATE approve SET STATUS = ? , operator = ? , operator_name = ? , COMMENT = ? WHERE approve . id = ? 15 xx BASE 20170829
  • Further verification
1. Through the above-mentioned SQL, if they update the same id, it is likely to lead to lock waiting.

2. To satisfy the above conjecture, a necessary condition must also be satisfied: the following statement must be executed before the above statement, and there is no commit

3. We went to the server for tcpdump grabbing and found the following:

Capturing on Pseudo-device that captures on all interfaces
Aug 29, 2017 10:20:23.560491000 xx.xx.xx.xx UPDATE approve SET status=1, operator=1, operator_name='system', comment='\xe7\xa6\xbb\xe8\x81\x8c' WHERE approve.id = 49384
Aug 29, 2017 10:20:23.589586000 xx.xx.xx.xx UPDATE approve SET `operator` = '0',`operator_name` = 'system',`comment` = '\xe7\xa6\xbb\xe8\x81\x8c',`status` = '1' WHERE (`id` = '49384')

It just validates our inferences.

4. Manual simulation of this situation, the phenomenon is consistent with our fault, that is, the cause of the problem and find out.
  • Problem solving
1. Get the developed code and find that it's python's code, and there's no auto_commit option.

2. The first transaction does not end and there is no commit, resulting in the next transaction waiting for resources to be locked.

3. Why do we need to update the same record twice? We need to know more about the code and business.

Four, summary

1. Next time you encounter a similar problem, you can avoid being confused by the surface phenomena of processlist and be good at understanding the mechanism of lock and the investigation of lock information.

2. When writing code, try to do small transactions, generally use auto_commit, if you need to show open transactions, you should also try to use as much commit as possible.

3. If MySQL can print out the lock directly in the show process list, the waiting lock status will be more humane.

4. Why can't you see which SQL statement holds the lock when showing engine InnoDB status? MySQL can help DBA diagnose problems better if it can provide such information.
