When you do a insert into a MySQL database and the disk is full, the
insert just hangs waiting for that table to become available.
This is fine for applications that care about data integrity. In this
case I care more about availability and speed and would prefer it if the
inserts gracefully returned a nice error instead of waiting forever.
However - if the system is running a bit slow and the inserts are
queuing and taking a few seconds I wouldn't want them to fail in that
Does anyone have any experience in this kind of "circumventing the
data-integrity protecting hang-on disk-full condition"? I would love to
hear your thoughts and ideas..
