Mysql Crash 'boost::wrapexcept<std::system_error>'

I just inherited a web server cluster using XtraDB 8 for MySQL clustering, and in the past couple of days I’ve seen the following error on multiple nodes:

2022-07-14T14:05:41.175929Z 12 [Note] [MY-000000] [WSREP] wsrep_notify_cmd is not defined, skipping notification.

Most likely, you have hit a bug, but this error can also be caused by malfunctioning hardware.

The nodes will start mysqld again and rejoin the cluster if it’s started, but I’m not adept enough to find the problem based on that trace.

Any help would be appreciated.

I have a fresh install of Percona XtraDB on a single node. It is exposed to the internet and I’m getting random crashes like you have. I suspect it’s a scan that is happening and killing the node. There’s a similar thread here:
[MDEV-25068] Node crashes with Transport endpoint is not connected mysqld got signal 6 ; - Jira where it says Fix is in Galera library 26.4.12.

Not sure if that’s what is happening or if/when the fix will be incorporated into Percona’s software…

Thanks for that! We do use Nessus for scans, and I’m trying to get scan times from our Information Assurance team to see if those times correlate with my crashes.

I was struggling to figure out why it would have happened on one node the first time, and then took out every node in the cluster the second time it happened. But I’m sure that IA is running scheduled scans on that vlan, which would get all three at the same time, and I asked for a manual scan to see if a config change to an unrelated piece of software remediated another vulnerability on a single node the day before.
