This error occurs when a sort process is aborted due to an error in the filesort process. It is a MySQL server error code 1028.

How It Affects Your App

MySQL 1028 ER_FILSORT_ABORT can have a significant impact on an application. It indicates that the server was unable to complete a sort operation due to a lack of resources. This can lead to data being sorted incorrectly, or not at all, which can cause incorrect results to be returned from queries. Additionally, it can cause queries to take longer to execute, leading to a decrease in performance. This can have a negative impact on the user experience, as well as the overall reliability of the application.

How To Fix

1. Check the error log for the MySQL 1028 error:
$ tail -f /var/log/mysql/error.log
2. Check the MySQL configuration file for any misconfigurations:
$ cat /etc/mysql/my.cnf
3. Check the MySQL process list to see if any queries are running for an extended period of time:
$ mysqladmin -u root -p processlist
4. Check the MySQL status to see if there are any issues with the server:
$ mysqladmin -u root -p status
5. Check the MySQL variables to see if any of them are set incorrectly:
$ mysqladmin -u root -p variables
6. Check the MySQL user privileges to see if any of them are set incorrectly:
$ mysql -u root -p -e "SELECT * FROM mysql.user;"
7. Check the MySQL database tables to see if any of them are corrupted:
$ mysqlcheck -u root -p --all-databases
8. Check the MySQL database logs to see if any of them are corrupted:
$ mysqlbinlog -u root -p /var/log/mysql/binlog.000001
9. If the issue persists, restart the MySQL server:
$ service mysql restart
10. As a final step, it is recommended to use an automated database observability tool to monitor and fix the MySQL 1028 in question.
