#1: Connection disabling: Is this something I should report as a bug?

Posted on 2006-10-26 20:06:41 by Bill Moran

It appears as if newer MySQL versions have a security feature that
disables connections from a particular host if that host generates more
than a certain number of errors.

I wish to disable this feature on certain servers where it causes more
harm than good, but I can't seem to find any docs on how to do so.

I've got a short list of why this might be:
1) The docs are sorely lacking.
2) This is a bug: developers forgot to add a knob to frob this setting.

I'm just trying to figure out which one is the problem. Any feedback
is welcome.

Bill,

Not sure if this what you are looking for or not, but I'm using 5.x of
MySQL and it has a system variable called "max_connect_errors" which
blocks connections from hosts that have exceeded the value of this
variable with interrupted connections. It defaults to 10 which may be
too low for you.
