Server shutdown problem

Hi All,

I shutdown our mysql server with service mysql shutdown as normal however I had this problem:

110922 4:34:08 [Note] /usr/sbin/mysqld: Normal shutdown
110922 4:34:08 [Note] Event Scheduler: Purging the queue. 0 events
110922 4:34:10 InnoDB: Starting shutdown…
110922 4:51:58 [Note] Plugin ‘FEDERATED’ is disabled.
110922 4:52:04 InnoDB: Database was not shut down normally!
110922 4:56:35 InnoDB: Starting an apply batch of log records to the database…

This same issue also happened earlier today with a normal shutdown.

What could be causing this?

Thanks in advance

To elaborate on this I shut the server down normally with out any errors however when I start it starts doing recovery and I can’t tell why.

Does the error log say anything else at startup?

What is your setting for:

You can try setting this variable to 0 (which you can change on a running server) to force InnoDB to perform a complete flush at shutdown (but note that that can take a lot of time if you have a large highly volatile database).
