MySQL 8.0 Reference Manual Including MySQL NDB Cluster 8.0 Event Buffer Reporting in the Cluster Log

NDB uses one or more memory buffers for events received from the data nodes. There is one such buffer for each Ndb object subscribing to table events, which means that there are usually two buffers for each mysqld performing binary logging (one buffer for schema events, and one for data events). Each buffer contains epochs made up of events. These events consist of operation types (insert, update, delete) and row data (before and after images plus metadata).

NDB generates messages in the cluster log to describe the state of these buffers. Although these reports appear in the cluster log, they refer to buffers on API nodes (unlike most other cluster log messages, which are generated by data nodes).

Event buffer logging reports in the cluster log use the format shown here:

Node node_id: Event buffer status (object_id):
used=bytes_used (percent_used% of alloc)
alloc=bytes_allocated (percent_alloc% of max) max=bytes_available

The fields making up this report are listed here, with descriptions:

Possible reasons for reporting are described in the following list:
