Re: Row size too large



Since I was the author of the bug this addressed, MySQL Bug 69477
<http://bugs.mysql.com/bug.php?id=69477> I could comment here.

The InnoDB redo log (innodb_log_file_size) needs to be at least 10x larger
than the largest single BLOB value you intend to store, not larger than the
sum of BLOB data. If you are seeing this error with a log file size of 128
MB, that implies that you have some BLOB column containing at least 12.8
MB. Is that the case? Your use is probably quite strange if your total data
size is only 129 MB and you have BLOBs of that size, but be aware: this bug
fix was for a very serious bug. With the previous behavior usage of such
large BLOBs could result in silent and unrecoverable data loss after a
crash due to overwriting the most recent checkpoint with oversized BLOB

My understanding is that the bug was addressed in 5.7 without introducing a
