MySQL 3197

This error occurs when a transaction fails to commit due to a deadlock or timeout and must be retried.

How It Affects Your App

MySQL 3197 ER_XA_RETRY indicates that a transaction has been rolled back due to a deadlock or timeout. This can have a significant impact on an application, as it can cause data inconsistency and data loss. It can also lead to application downtime, as the application may need to be restarted in order to recover from the error. Additionally, it can lead to decreased performance, as the application may need to retry the transaction multiple times before it succeeds.

$ tail -f /var/log/mysql/error.log

3. Check the MySQL process list for any suspicious activity:

$ mysqladmin -u root -p processlist

4. Check the MySQL user table for any suspicious users:

$ mysql -u root -p -e "SELECT * FROM mysql.user;"

5. Check the MySQL grant tables for any suspicious grants:

6. Check the MySQL system variables for any suspicious settings:
