Error Codes and Troubleshooting

This document describes the problems encountered during the use of TiDB and provides the solutions.

Error codes

TiDB is compatible with the error codes in MySQL, and in most cases returns the same error code as MySQL. For a list of error codes for MySQL, see Server Error Message Reference. In addition, TiDB has the following unique error codes:

Note:

Some error codes stand for internal errors. Normally, TiDB handles the error rather than return it to the user, so some error codes are not listed here.

If you encounter an error code that is not listed here, contact PingCAP for support.

  • Error Number: 8001

    The memory used by the request exceeds the threshold limit for the TiDB memory usage.

    Increase the memory limit for a single SQL statement by configuring mem-quota-query.

  • Error Number: 8002

    To guarantee consistency, a transaction with the SELECT FOR UPDATE statement cannot be retried when it encounters a commit conflict. TiDB rolls back the transaction and returns this error.

    The application can safely retry the whole transaction.

  • Error Number: 8003

    If the data in a row is not consistent with the index when executing the ADMIN CHECK TABLE command, TiDB returns this error. This error is commonly seen when you check the data corruption in the table.

    You can contact PingCAP for support.

  • Error Number: 8004

    A single transaction is too large.

    See the error message transaction too large for the cause and solution.

  • Error Number: 8005

    Transactions in TiDB encounter write conflicts.

    See the Troubleshoot section for the cause and solution.

  • Error Number: 8018

    When you reload a plugin, if the plugin has not been loaded before, this error is returned.

    You can execute an initial load of the plugin.

  • Error Number: 8019

    The version of the plugin that is being reloaded is different from the previous version. Therefore, the plugin cannot be reloaded, and this error is returned.

    You can reload the plugin by ensuring that the plugin version is the same as the previous one.

  • Error Number: 8020

    When the table is locked, if you perform a write operation on the table, this error is returned.

    Unlock the table and retry the write operation.

  • Error Number: 8021

    When the key to be read from TiKV does not exist, this error is returned. This error is used internally, and the external result is an empty read.

  • Error Number: 8022

    The transaction commit fails and has been rolled back.

    The application can safely retry the whole transaction.

  • Error Number: 8023

    If you set an empty value when writing the transaction cache, this error is returned. This error is used and dealt with internally, and is not returned to the application.

  • Error Number: 8024

    Invalid transactions. If TiDB finds that no transaction ID (Start Timestamp) is obtained for the transaction that is being executed, which means this transaction is invalid, this error is returned.

    Usually this error does not occur. If you encounter this error, contact PingCAP for support.

  • Error Number: 8025

    The single Key-Value pair being written is too large. The largest single Key-Value pair supported in TiDB is 6 MB.

    If a pair exceeds this limit, you need to manually deal with this row of data to meet the 6 MB limit.

  • Error Number: 8026

    The interface function being used has not been implemented. This error is only used internally, and is not returned to the application.

  • Error Number: 8027

    The table schema version is outdated. TiDB uses the F1 online schema change algorithm to execute DDL statements. When the table schema version of the TiDB server is earlier than that of the entire system, this error is returned if you execute a SQL statement.

    When this error occurs, check the network between the TiDB server and the PD Leader.

  • Error Number: 8028

    TiDB does not support table lock, which is called metadata lock in MySQL and might be called intention lock in other databases.

    When a transaction is executed, the transaction cannot recognize the table schema changes. Therefore, when committing a transaction, TiDB checks the table schema related the transaction. If the related table schema has changed during the execution, the transaction commit will fail and this error is returned.

    The application can safely retry the whole transaction.

  • Error Number: 8029

    This error occurs when numeric conversion within the database encounters an error. This error is only used internally and is converted to a specific type of error for external applications.

  • Error Number: 8030

    After an unsigned positive integer is converted to a signed integer, it exceeds the maximum value and displays as a negative integer. This error mostly occurs in the alert message.

  • Error Number: 8031

    When being converted to an unsigned integer, a negative integer is converted to a positive integer. This error mostly occurs in the alert message.

  • Error Number: 8032

    Invalid year format is used. year only accepts 1, 2 or 4 digits.

  • Error Number: 8033

    Invalid year value is used. The valid range of year is (1901, 2155).

  • Error Number: 8037

    Invalid mode format is used in the week function. mode must be 1 digit within [0, 7].

  • Error Number: 8038

    The field fails to obtain the default value. This error is usually used internally, and is converted to a specific type of error for external applications.

  • Error Number: 8040

    Unsupported operations are performed. For example, you perform a table locking operation on a view or a sequence.

  • Error Number: 8047

    The value of the system variable is not supported. This error usually occurs in the alarm information when the user sets a variable value that is not supported in the database.

  • Error Number: 8048

    An unsupported database isolation level is set.

    If you cannot modify the codes because you are using a third-party tool or framework, consider using tidb_skip_isolation_level_check to bypass this check.

    set @@tidb_skip_isolation_level_check = 1;
  • Error Number: 8050

    An unsupported privilege type is set.

    See Privileges required for TiDB operations for the solution.

  • Error Number: 8051

    Unknown data type is encountered when TiDB parses the Exec argument list sent by the client.

    If you encounter this error, check the client. If the client is normal, contact PingCAP for support.

  • Error Number: 8052

    The serial number of the data packet from the client is incorrect.

    If you encounter this error, check the client. If the client is normal, contact PingCAP for support.

  • Error Number: 8055

    The current snapshot is too old. The data may have been garbage collected. You can increase the value of tikv_gc_life_time to avoid this problem. The new version of TiDB automatically reserves data for long-running transactions. Usually this error does not occur.

    See garbage collection overview and garbage collection configuration.

    update mysql.tidb set VARIABLE_VALUE="24h" where VARIABLE_NAME="tikv_gc_life_time";
  • Error Number: 8059

    The auto-random ID is exhausted and cannot be allocated. There is no way to recover from such errors currently. It is recommended to use bigint when using the auto random feature to obtain the maximum number of assignment. And try to avoid manually assigning values to the auto random column.

    See auto random for reference.

  • Error Number: 8060

    Invalid auto-incrementing offset. Check the values of auto_increment_increment and auto_increment_offset.

  • Error Number: 8061

    Unsupported SQL Hint.

    See Optimizer Hints to check and modify the SQL Hint.

  • Error Number: 8062

    See Optimizer Hints to check and modify the SQL Hint.

  • Error Number: 8063

    The limited memory usage set in SQL Hint exceeds the upper limit of the system. The setting in SQL Hint is ignored.

    See Optimizer Hints to check and modify the SQL Hint.

  • Error Number: 8064

    It fails to parse SQL Hint.

    See Optimizer Hints to check and modify the SQL Hint.

  • Error Number: 8065
