Running a 24 core server (with HT enabled) I tried increasing MaxNoOfExecutionThreads to 24 to perform some benchmarks and got the following error:

2013-02-27 11:21:44 [ndbd] INFO -- Trying to start 12 LQH workers with only 4 log parts, try initial node restart to be able to use more LQH workers.

Here are options from config.ini I find relevant:



It seems that Redo Log file number (not fragment) is always four and they are created in D9-D11 directory on the FS. I haven't been able to find a parameter to change this.

Version running is: 5.5.29-ndb-7.2.10

Any help or experience is welcome.

EDIT - solution: The following option defines the number of Redo log files - NoOfFragmentLogParts

After setting it to 12, you get D8-D19 for Redo Logs and 24 as MaxNoOfExecutionThreads works fine.

I just ran into this exact same problem. I can't figure it out either. – Dave Feb 27 '13 at 19:37
I EDIT-ed the questions as it seems the solution is hidden in the docs. – Nimzo Feb 27 '13 at 23:09

You can try and set



Then restart all nodes with --initial
