Changes in MySQL Cluster Manager 1.4.0 (2015-12-07)

   This section documents all changes and bug fixes that have
   been applied in MySQL Cluster Manager 1.4.0 since the release
   of MySQL Cluster Manager version 1.3.6.

   Functionality Added or Changed

     * Packaging: MySQL Cluster Manager is now built and shipped
       with GLib-2.44.0, OpenSSL 1.0.1p, and the MySQL 5.6
       client library. (Bug #22202878)

     * Agent: When using the import cluster command, before, if
       an SQL node was started at the command line with options
       outside of a special, pre-defined set, the import would
       fail with the complaint that those options were
       unsupported. Now, import will continue in the situation,
       as long as those options and their values also appear in
       the node's configuration created by MySQL Cluster Manager
       for import. (Bug #21943518)

     * Agent: A warning is now logged (if log-level=warning)
       when a failed process is not restarted because the
       parameter StopOnError has the value "true." (Bug

     * Agent: Two new options have been introduced for the
       upgrade cluster command: --retry and --nodeid. They,
       together with the --force option, allow a retry after an
       initial attempt to upgrade a cluster has failed. See
       description for upgrade cluster for detail. (Bug
       #20469067, Bug #16932006, Bug #21200698)

     * Client: The get command now returns attributes in the
       same order as the MySQL Cluster ndb_mgmd command does
       when the --print-full-config option is used, with the
       non-data nodes going first, and in increasing order of
       the node ID. (Bug #22202973)

     * Client: A new autotune command has been introduced, which
       tunes a number of parameters of the cluster to optimize
       its performance. (Bug #22202855)

     * Client: The show settings command has a new --hostinfo
       option, with which the command prints out information on
       the host the mcm client is connected to. (Bug #21923561)

     * Client: You can now use the wildcard * (asterisk
       character) to match attribute names in a get command. See
       The get Command
       m-get.html) for examples. (Bug #18069656)

   Bugs Fixed

     * Agent: On Windows platform, after a cluster import, the
       subsequent cluster restart would time out if a
       non-default value of the option pid_file has been
       imported for a mysqld node. (Bug #21943518)
       References: This bug is a regression of Bug #21111944.

     * Agent: When a data node could not be restarted after a
       set command because some attributes were set wrongly,
       another set command could not be used to correct the
       attributes, because the set command required the data
       node to be running. With this fix, the second set command
       can now be executed even when the data node is not
       running, as long as the --force option is used. The
       failed node is then restarted, followed by a rolling
       restart of the cluster. (Bug #21943518)

     * Agent: A timeout occurred for a restore cluster command
       when the number of tables in the cluster was huge
       (>1000). It was because a timeout extension was blocked.
       This fix unblocks the extension. (Bug #21393857)

     * Agent: At the initial startup of a large cluster (with
       memory size in the order of 10GB), the process might time
       out while waiting for a data node to start. This fix
       makes the transaction timeout longer for data node
       initiation. (Bug #21355383)

     * Agent: Under some conditions, a check status command
       might report negative node group ID values for processes
       after an add process command was completed. That was
       because the agent was reporting the node group IDs before
       their proper values had arrived, after the creation of
       new node groups. This fix makes the agent wait for the
       correct node group IDs before reporting them. (Bug

     * Agent: After successful the execution of an add process
       and a subsequent start cluster --added command, a third
       command that was issued very shortly afterward might
       fail. This was due to the way the updates for the
       processes' statuses were handled after the new nodes were
       added, which has now been corrected. (Bug #21138604)
       References: See also Bug #21346804.

     * Agent: Setting a value for a "key-only" option for a
       MySQL node (that is, an option that does not take a
       value---for example, skip_show_database) with the set
       command and restarting the cluster afterward caused mcmd
       to attempt a cluster upgrade and back up the cluster.
       (Bug #21098403)

     * Agent: The create site command sometimes failed with the
       error message "Lost connection to MySQL server during
       query." It was due to an error in the code that handled
       the socket, which has now been fixed. (Bug #21027818)

     * Agent: Parameters listed under the [mysqld default] or
       [tcp default] section of the config.ini file were not
       imported as configuration parameters for unmanaged API
       nodes. (Bug #20889471)

     * Client: Output of the get command used with the
       --include-defaults (-d) option did not include matching
       TCP attributes that had default values. (Bug #21895322)
