Re: signal handling in mysql cli

Nobody concerned by this case?
Simple question: is it safe or not to do a KILL QUERY in a SIGINT signal handler?

Hi all,

I have a similar question regarding KILL QUERY usage:

We have a C client program using libmysqlclient.so, it is a single-threaded program.

When running a long query, how can I send the KILL QUERY command when a SIGINT (CTRL-C)
is caught? (of course we implement a signal handler, so we keep the control)

=> Is is safe to establish a new connection to the server in the signal handler, using
mysql_init() + mysql_real_connect(), and execute the KILL QUERY with the mysql thread
id I got from the initial mysql_init() / mysql_real_connect()?

I made some tests, and it seems to work fine, the long query returns SQL error -1317:
"Query execution was interrupted" (which is expected)

We want to support SQL interruption properly, so please someone from the dev team,
give me a clear answer... I don't want to use a side effect or undocumented feature.

Doing all this stuff in a signal handler is certainly risky... no?

I could not find the information in the documentation (mysql_real_connect).

I wish there would be an API like mysql_cancel_query(), similar to Oracle's OCI

hi list,

when i use CTRL-C to break a query that works fine in interactive mode.

mysql> select sleep(10) ;
^CCtrl-C -- sending "KILL QUERY 24289" to server ...
Ctrl-C -- query aborted.
| sleep(10) |
1 row in set (0.86 sec)

but when i use the noninteractive mode
   timeout 5 mysql -BAN -e "select now(); select sleep (100) ; select now() "

i looks like that  but "show full processlist;" shows otherwise and that is true
as a list of long running querys showed.

Is there a way to make it behave like the interactive version ?
Now it is a bit confusing for everyone.
