[asterisk-users] ODBC locks warning in CLI - Asterisk

Hi all

Just to report back if it is of interest to anybody, I managed to solve

Had nothing to do with Asterisk, rather with Percona 5.6 / MySQL which is
the database used via ODBC from Asterisk to store CELs and CDRs.

I added the following in the /etc/my.cnf file for the Percona instance I am


and restarted the Percona instance.

This appears to have definitively removed the below warning from my Asterisk
instance's CLI.

Using READ-COMMITTED (instead of the default REPEATABLE-READ) transaction
isolation level apparently has optimised InnoDB table row locking (at least
in my use case, Percona / MySQL version and load) to such a degree that I no
longer see the warning below come up.

Everything is still reliably logging as far as I can determine, and all my
MySQL stored procedures which process my CDRs and CELs into useful form for
my dialing back-end are still working fine.

Just in case somebody can be helped by this.

and re-emit the CEL or CDR insert that hit the lock and were therefore NOT
written to MySQL?
