Hi Team,

Got mysql restart on one mysql server due to adding the column to existing table.

1. before initiating the alter i have 95 GB disk space free.

2. the table X which is 58GB,, am doing alter on X

3. ALTER TABLE X ADD c_job_id bigint(20) NOT NULL default 0;

4. the disk space decreased until 34GB on the server and the temporary file
also not yet starting consuming disk space(pasted the output below)

root@bagan-master-db:~# df -h
Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/vda1 494G 435G 34G 93% /
none 4.0K 0 4.0K 0% /sys/fs/cgroup
udev 16G 4.0K 16G 1% /dev
tmpfs 3.1G 388K 3.1G 1% /run
none 5.0M 0 5.0M 0% /run/lock
none 16G 0 16G 0% /run/shm
none 100M 0 100M 0% /run/user

root@bagan-master-db:~# ls -lrth /var/lib/mysql/messaging/#sql*
-rw-rw---- 1 mysql mysql 14K Dec 4 11:18 /var/lib/mysql/messaging/#sql-
-rw-rw---- 1 mysql mysql 112K Dec 4 11:18 /var/lib/mysql/messaging/#sql-

5. After that suddenly the disk space is decreasing drastically and it went
100% full and Db restarted..then space released... the time of alter no ther operations are happened except select

7. May i know why this was happen even though i have ample amount of space to
do alter.
