I have several servers with different virtualization and CentOS 6 and 7, and some have MySQL 5.6.38 and others show 5.6.38-log. Why is that?

In the same fashion, some servers which are up to date with the Release branch of cPanel have
10.1.30-MariaDB and others are on 10.1.31-MariaDB. May be due to some rpm issue?

Please advice.
Thanks in advance!

On the servers that are showing 10.1.30-MariaDB, what is the output of:

yum check-update
Thanks. It came up that those servers had upcp config for OS update in manual mode. That explains it.


As per the main question on what does mean the -log part in 5.6.38-log for MySQL, hope anybody have a clue.

Hello,

MySQL documents this at:

MySQL :: MySQL 5.6 Reference Manual :: 5.1.5 Server System Variables

Here's the relevant quote:

  • The version number for the server. The value might also include a suffix indicating server build or configuration information. -log indicates that one or more of the general log, slow query log, or binary log are enabled. -debug indicates that the server was built with debugging support enabled.
Thank you.
