TiDB 6.2.0 Release Notes

Release date: August 23, 2022

TiDB version: 6.2.0-DMR

Quick access: Quick start | Installation packages

In v6.2.0-DMR, the key new features and improvements are as follows:

New features

SQL

  • The physical data compaction feature is GA

    The TiFlash backend automatically compacts physical data based on specific conditions to reduce the backlog of useless data and optimize the data storage structure.

    There is often a certain amount of useless data in TiFlash tables before data compaction is automatically triggered. This feature lets you choose the right timing and manually execute SQL statements to immediately compact the physical data in TiFlash, thus reducing storage space usage and improving query performance. This feature is experimental in TiDB v6.1, and now is in General Availability (GA) in TiDB v6.2.0.

Observability

  • Split TiDB Dashboard from PD

    TiDB Dashboard is moved from PD to the monitoring node. This reduces the impact of TiDB Dashboard on PD and makes PD more stable.

    @Hawkson-jee

  • TiDB Dashboard adds a Monitoring page

    The new Monitoring page shows key indicators required for performance tuning, based on which you can analyze and tune performance with reference to Performance tuning by database time.

    Specifically, you can analyze user response time and database time from a global and top-down perspective, to confirm whether the bottleneck in user response time is caused by database issues. If the bottleneck is in the database, you can use the database time overview and SQL latency breakdowns to identify the bottleneck and tune performance.

    User document #1381 @YiniXu9506

  • TiDB Dashboard supports visual execution plans

    TiDB Dashboard provides visual execution plans and basic diagnosis service through the SQL Statements and Monitoring pages. This feature offers a fresh new perspective for you to identify each step of a query plan. Therefore, you can learn all traces of query execution plans more intuitively.

    This feature is particularly useful when you are trying to learn the execution of complex and large queries. Meanwhile, for each query execution plan, TiDB Dashboard automatically analyzes the execution details, spots potential problems, and provides optimization suggestions to reduce the time required for executing specific query plans.

  • Lock View supports showing the waiting information of optimistic transactions

    Too many lock conflicts might cause serious performance problems, and detecting the lock conflicts is a necessary way to troubleshoot such problems. Before v6.2.0, TiDB supported viewing the lock conflict relationships using the INFORMATION_SCHEMA.DATA_LOCK_WAITS system view, but it does not show the waiting information of optimistic transactions. TiDB v6.2.0 extends the DATA_LOCK_WAITS view and lists the optimistic transactions blocked by pessimistic locks in the view. This feature helps users detect lock conflicts quickly, and provides a basis for improving the application, thus reducing the frequency of lock conflicts and improving the overall performance.

Performance

  • Improve the LEADING optimizer hint to support outer join ordering

    In v6.1.0, the optimizer hint LEADING was introduced to modify the join order of tables. But this hint was not applicable to queries that contain outer joins. For more information, see LEADING document. In v6.2.0, TiDB lifts this restriction. In a query that contains outer join, now you can use this hint to specify the join order of tables to get better SQL execution performance and to avoid the sudden change of execution plans.

    User document #29932 @Reminiscent

  • Add a new optimizer SEMI_JOIN_REWRITE to improve the performance of EXISTS queries

    In some scenarios, queries with EXISTS cannot have the optimal execution plan and might be executed for too long. In v6.2.0, the optimizer adds rewriting rules for such scenarios, and you can use SEMI_JOIN_REWRITE in queries to forcibly make the optimizer rewrite the query and get better query performance.

    User document #35323 @winoros

  • Add a new optimizer hint MERGE to improve the performance of analytical queries

    Common table expression (CTE) is an effective way to simplify the query logic. It is widely used to write complex queries. Before v6.2.0, CTE cannot be automatically expanded in TiFlash environments, which, to some extent, limits the execution efficiency of MPP. In v6.2.0, a MySQL-compatible optimizer hint MERGE is introduced. With this hint, the optimizer now allows CTE inlines to be expanded, so that the consumers of the CTE query results can concurrently execute the query in TiFlash, which improves the performance of some analytical queries.

    User document #36122 @dayicklp

  • Optimize the performance of aggregation operations in some analytical scenarios

    When you use TiFlash to perform aggregation operations on a column in an OLAP scenario, if serious data skew exists due to uneven distribution of the aggregated column, and if the aggregated column has many different values, the execution efficiency of COUNT(DISTINCT) queries on the column is low. In v6.2.0, new rewriting rules are introduced to improve the performance of COUNT(DISTINCT) queries on a single column.

    User document #36169 @fixdb

  • TiDB supports concurrent DDL operations

    TiDB v6.2.0 introduces a new concurrent DDL framework, which enables DDL statements to be concurrently executed on different table objects and fixes the issue that DDL operations are blocked by DDL operations on other tables. In addition, TiDB supports concurrent DDL execution when adding an index on multiple tables or changing a column type. This improves the efficiency of DDL execution.

    User document #32031 @wjhuang2016

  • Optimizer enhances the estimation of string matching

    In the string matching scenario, if the optimizer cannot accurately estimate the number of rows, it affects the generation of the optimal execution plan. For example, the condition is like '%xyz' or using a regular expression regex (). To improve the estimation accuracy in such scenarios, TiDB v6.2.0 enhances the estimation method. The new method combines the TopN information of statistics and system variables to improve the accuracy and makes it possible to modify the match selectivity manually, thus improving the SQL performance.

    User document #36209 @time-and-fate

  • Window functions pushed down to TiFlash can be executed in multiple threads

    After the Fine Grained Shuffle feature is enabled, window functions can be executed in multiple threads, instead of in a single thread. This feature reduces the query response time significantly without changing user behavior. You can control the granularity of the shuffle by adjusting the value of the variables.

    User document #4631 @guo-shaoge

  • TiFlash supports a newer version of storage format

    The new storage format relieves high CPU usage caused by GC in high-concurrency and heavy workload scenarios. This significantly reduces IO traffic of background tasks, thereby boosting stability under high concurrencies and heavy workloads. At the same time, space amplification and disk waste can be significantly reduced.

    In TiDB v6.2.0, data is stored in the new storage format by default. Note that if TiFlash is upgraded from earlier versions to v6.2.0, you cannot perform in-place downgrade on TiFlash, because earlier TiFlash versions cannot recognize the new storage format.

    For more information about upgrading TiFlash, see TiFlash v6.2.0 Upgrade Guide.

    User document #3594 @JaySon-Huang @lidezhu @jiaqizho

  • TiFlash optimizes data scanning performance in multiple concurrency scenarios (experimental)

    TiFlash reduces duplicate reads of the same data by merging read operations of the same data, and optimizes the resource overhead in the case of multiple concurrent tasks to improve data scanning performance. It avoids the situation where the same data has to be read separately in each task, or even the same data may be read multiple times at the same time, if the same data is involved in multiple concurrent tasks.

    User document #5376 @JinheLin

  • TiFlash adds FastScan for data scanning to increase read and write speed by sacrificing data consistency (experimental)

    TiDB introduces FastScan in v6.2.0. It supports skipping consistency checks to increase the speed significantly. FastScan is suitable for scenarios that do not require high accuracy and consistency of data such as offline analysis tasks. Previously, to ensure data consistency, TiFlash needed to perform data consistency checks during the data scanning process to find the required data from multiple different versions.

    When you upgrade from an earlier version to TiDB v6.2.0, FastScan is not enabled by default for all tables, which ensures data consistency. You can enable FastScan for each table independently. If the table is set to FastScan in TiDB v6.2.0, it will be disabled when you downgrade to a lower version, but this does not affect the normal data read. In this case, it is equivalent to strong consistency read.

    User document #5252 @hongyunyan

Stability

  • TiKV supports automatically tuning the CPU usage (experimental)

    Databases usually have background processes to perform internal operations. Statistical information can be collected to help identify performance problems, generate better execution plans, and improve the stability and performance of the database. However, how to more efficiently collect information, and how to balance the resource overhead of background operations and foreground operations without affecting the daily use have always been one of the headaches in the database industry.

    Starting from v6.2.0, TiDB supports setting the CPU usage rate of background requests using the TiKV configuration file, thereby limiting the CPU usage ratio of background operations such as automatically collecting statistics in TiKV, and avoiding the resource preemption of user operations by background operations in extreme cases. This ensures that the operations of the database are stable and efficient.

    At the same time, TiDB also supports automatically adjusting CPU usage. Then, TiKV will adaptively adjust the CPU resources occupied by background requests according to the CPU usage of the instance. This feature is disabled by default.

    User document #12503 @BornChanger

Ease of use

  • TiKV supports listing detailed configuration information using command-line flags

    The TiKV configuration file can be used to manage TiKV instances. However, for instances that run for a long time and are managed by different users, it is difficult to know which configuration item has been modified and what the default value is. This might cause confusion when you upgrade the cluster or migrate data. Since TiDB v6.2.0, tikv-server supports a new command-line flag —-config-info that lists default and current values of all TiKV configuration items, helps users to quickly verify the startup parameters of the TiKV process, and improves usability.

    User document #12492 @glorv

MySQL compatibility

  • TiDB supports modifying multiple columns or indexes in a single ALTER TABLE statement

    Before v6.2.0, TiDB only supports single DDL changes, which leads to incompatible DDL operations when migrating heterogeneous databases, and it takes extra effort to modify a complex DDL statement into multiple TiDB-supported simple DDL statements. In addition, some users rely on the ORM framework to create assembly in SQL, thus causing SQL incompatibility. Since v6.2.0, TiDB supports modifying multiple schema objects in a single SQL statement, which is convenient for users to implement SQL and improves usability.

    User document #14766 @tangenta

  • Support setting savepoints in transactions

    A transaction is a logical collection of a series of consecutive operations with which the database guarantees ACID properties. In some complex application scenarios, you might need to manage many operations in a transaction, and sometimes you might need to roll back some operations in the transaction. “Savepoint” is a nameable mechanism for the internal implementation of transactions. With this mechanism, you can flexibly control the rollback points within a transaction, thereby managing the more complex transactions and having more freedom in designing diverse applications.

    User document #6840 @crazycs520

Data migration

  • BR supports restoring user and privilege data

    BR supports restoring user and privilege data when it performs a normal restoration. You do not need any additional restoration plan to restore user and privilege data. To enable this feature, specify the --with-sys-table parameter when you use BR to restore data.

    User document #35395 @D3Hunter

  • Support point-in-time recovery (PITR) based on backup and restoration of log and snapshot

    PITR is implemented based on the backup and restoration of log and snapshot. It allows you to restore the snapshots of a cluster at any point in history to a new cluster. This feature satisfies the following needs:

    • Reduce the RPO in disaster recovery to less than 20 minutes.

    • Handle the cases of incorrect writes from applications by, for example, rolling back data to before the error event.

    • Perform history data auditing to meet the requirements of laws and regulations.

      This feature has usage limitations. For details, refer to the user document.

      User document #29501 @joccau

  • DM supports continuous data validation (experimental)

    Continuous data validation is used to continuously compare the upstream binlog with the data written into the downstream during data migration. The validator identifies data exceptions, such as inconsistent data and missing records.

    This feature solves the issues of lagging validation and excessive resource consumption in common full data validation schemes.

    User document #4426 @D3Hunter @buchuitoudegou

  • Automatically identify the region of Amazon S3 buckets

    Data migration tasks can automatically identify the region of Amazon S3 buckets. You do not need to explicitly pass the region parameter.

    #34275 @WangLe1321

  • Support configuring disk quota for TiDB Lightning (experimental)

    When TiDB Lightning imports data in the physical import mode (backend='local'), sorted-kv-dir must have enough space to store the source data. Insufficient disk space might cause the import task to fail. Now you can use the new disk_quota configuration to limit the total amount of disk space used by TiDB Lightning, so that the import task can be completed normally even when sorted-kv-dir does not have enough storage space.

    User document #446 @buchuitoudegou

  • TiDB Lightning supports importing data to production clusters in the physical import mode

    Previously, the physical import mode of TiDB Lightning (backend='local') had a significant impact on the target cluster. For example, during the migration, PD global scheduling is paused. Therefore, the previous physical import mode is only suitable for initial data import.

    TiDB Lightning improves the existing physical import mode. By allowing pausing the scheduling of tables, the impact of import is reduced from cluster level to table level. That is, you can read and write tables that are not being imported.

    This feature does not need manual configuration. If your TiDB cluster is v6.1.0 or later versions and TiDB Lightning is v6.2.0 or later versions, the new physical import mode takes effect automatically.

    User document #35148 @gozssky

  • Refactor the user documentation of TiDB Lightning to make its structure more reasonable and clear. The terms for “backend” is also modified to lower the understanding barrier for new users:

    • Replace “local backend” with “physical import mode”.
    • Replace “tidb backend” with “logical import mode”.

TiDB data share subscription

  • Support cross-cluster RawKV replication (experimental)

    Support subscribing to the data change of RawKV and replicating the data change to a downstream TiKV cluster in real-time using a new component TiKV-CDC, which makes the cross-cluster replication possible.

    User document #11965 @pingyu

  • Support filtering DDL and DML events

    In some special occasions, you might want to set filter rules for incremental data change logs. For example, filtering high risk DDL events such as DROP TABLE. Starting from v6.2.0, TiCDC supports filtering DDL events of specified types and filtering DML events based on SQL expressions. This makes TiCDC applicable to more data replication scenarios.

Others

  • TiFlash format_version cannot be downgraded from 4 to 3. For details, see TiFlash v6.2.0 Upgrade Guide.
  • In v6.2.0 and later versions, it is strongly recommended to keep the default value false of dt_enable_logical_split and not to change it to true. For details, see known issue #5576.
  • If the backup cluster has a TiFlash replica, after you perform PITR, the restoration cluster does not contain the data in the TiFlash replica. To restore data from the TiFlash replica, you need to manually configure TiFlash replicas. Executing the exchange partition DDL statement might result in a failure of PITR. If the upstream database uses TiDB Lightning's physical import mode to import data, the data cannot be backed up in log backup. It is recommended to perform a full backup after the data import. For other compatibility issues of PITR, see PITR limitations.
  • Since TiDB v6.2.0, you can restore table in mysql schema by specifying the parameter --with-sys-table=true when restoring data.
  • When you execute the ALTER TABLE statement to add, drop, or modify multiple columns or indexes, TiDB checks table consistency by comparing the table before and after statement execution, regardless of the change in the same DDL statement. The execution order of the DDLs is not fully compatible with MySQL in some scenarios.
  • If the TiDB component is v6.2.0 or later, the TiKV component should not be earlier than v6.2.0.
  • TiKV adds a configuration item split.region-cpu-overload-threshold-ratio that supports online configuration.
  • Slow query logs, information_schema.statements_summary, and information_schema.slow_querycan export binary_plan, or execution plans encoded in the binary format.
  • Two columns are added to the SHOW TABLE ... REGIONS statement: SCHEDULING_CONSTRAINTS and SCHEDULING_STATE, which respectively indicate Region scheduling constraints in Placement in SQL and the current scheduling state.
  • Since TiDB v6.2.0, you can capture data changes of RawKV via TiKV-CDC.
  • When ROLLBACK TO SAVEPOINT is used to roll back a transaction to a specified savepoint, MySQL releases the locks held only after the specified savepoint, while in TiDB pessimistic transaction, TiDB does not immediately release the locks held after the specified savepoint. Instead, TiDB releases all locks when the transaction is committed or rolled back.
  • Since TiDB v6.2.0, the SELECT tidb_version() statement also returns Store type (tikv or unistore).
  • TiDB no longer has hidden system variables.
  • TiDB v6.2.0 introduces two new system tables:
    • INFORMATION_SCHEMA.VARIABLES_INFO: used for viewing information about TiDB system variables.
    • PERFORMANCE_SCHEMA.SESSION_VARIABLES: used for viewing information about TiDB session-level system variables.

Removed feature

Since TiDB v6.2.0, backing up and restoring RawKV using BR is deprecated.
