We are upgrading PM from 21.2.6 to 21.2.8. I know with this upgrade MySQL will be upgraded to MySQL 8 and it should take some time.

It has been over 30 min now, it seems to be on the same spot



When I looked at the Installation Directory, nothing seems to be happening. Why aren't the logs being written to?

We do see the mysql process running and consuming resources, while the four main PC services are shut down.

When entering the MySql prompt and running the "show processlist;" command we see a DELETE statement for alarms as the longest running query.


Hanging DELETE statement for Alarms in MySql DB due to setting Spectrum Data Source to Disabled during upgrade run.


All DX NetOps Performance Management releases 21.2.7 and earlier.


The steps from the following Knowledge Base Article should be used to resolve this. Killing off the offending DELETE statement will allow the rest of the install run complete without issue.

Additional Information

It is safe to enter the MySql prompt to run queries during the upgrade.

Be sure to ONLY run queries that show information.

Never run queries that change anything while the upgrade is actively running.
