Dear all,

After 5 year of normal use with mysql 5.1.XX, after the upgrade to mysql 5.6.27, 
we noticed that our eprints sometimes (1 time every two day more or less) 
suddendly blocks itself.
Analyzing the problem we noticed that one of the mysql connections from eprints 
server (we are using a centralized version of mysql) is hanging in "statistics" 
status on a very big select (in attach).
All the other processes are waiting for table lock.
After  the Kill of that processs,   all the other processes flushed immediately 
and the server returns to life.

Have you ever noticed this BIG issue ? Any idea ?

In attach one of the sql commands.

Our optimizer_search_depth is set to 0.

Best regards,
Paolo Tealdi

P.S. One of the  problems probably is due to the eprint__rindex size ... 37M of 
records ...
