Subject: selectrow_array fails if mysql_server_prepare is enabled
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 1.5k
Originally reported by Philip Stoev at Description: It appears that if selectrow_array() is used with mysql_server_prepare, then the prepared statement remains at the server and a repeated query will very soon reach the maximum number of prepared statements, causing the script to fail. How to repeat: use DBI; my $dbh = DBI->connect('dbi:mysql:mysql_server_prepare=1'); while (1) { $dbh->selectrow_array("SELECT 1"); } Will run for a while and then start failing with: *DBD::mysql::db selectrow_array failed: Can't create more than max_prepared_stmt_count statements (current value: 16382) Suggested fix: Make sure selectrow_array and the related calls removes any prepared statements before completing. do() does not appear to be affected. I can not see any mysql_stmt_close() in the DBD::mysql code. Maybe that is why the statement does not get freed? [3 May 2007 11:01] Mika Raento The following patch does fix the leak from a simple testcase and passes all test from 'make test'. Somebody with a better understanding of how the lifetime of DBD objects works should review it. This is against 4.004. <pre> Index: dbdimp.c =================================================================== --- dbdimp.c (revision 5029) +++ dbdimp.c (revision 5030) @@ -3783,6 +3783,8 @@ mysql_st_free_result_sets(sth, imp_sth); } DBIc_ACTIVE_off(imp_sth); + if (imp_sth->stmt) mysql_stmt_close(imp_sth->stmt); + imp_sth->stmt=0; if (dbis->debug >= 2) { PerlIO_printf(DBILOGFP, "\n<-- dbd_st_finish\n"); </pre>
This was fixed in 4.024 and later.
