Upgraded to 7.0 - AutoStat value missing

After upgrading to MemSQL 7.0, we are not seeing the value of AUTOSTAT=TRUE or AUTOSTAT=FALSE when viewing the SHOW CREATE TABLE of tables.
This is even when the command to ENABLE AUTOSTATS was run against the table.

Can you post an example of the SHOW CREATE TABLE?

Here is what it looks like in my example:

show create table test;
+-------+----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------+
| Table | Create Table                                                                                                                                                                                                                           |
+-------+----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------+
| test  | CREATE TABLE `test` (
  `a` int(11) DEFAULT NULL,
  `b` int(11) DEFAULT NULL
  /*!90618 , SHARD KEY () */ 
) /*!90623 AUTOSTATS_CARDINALITY_MODE=PERIODIC, AUTOSTATS_HISTOGRAM_MODE=CREATE */ /*!90623 SQL_MODE='STRICT_ALL_TABLES' */ |
+-------+----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------+

The relevant part is AUTOSTATS_CARDINALITY_MODE=PERIODIC, AUTOSTATS_HISTOGRAM_MODE=CREATE at the end. In 6.x it showed AUTOSTATS_ENABLED={TRUE|FALSE}, now there are more different types of autostats with more granular settings which are shown here. You can find a description of these modes at https://docs.memsql.com/v7.0/reference/sql-reference/operational-commands/analyze/#disabling-and-enabling-autostats

Those table attributes are the same that I was seeing, which was confusing because the script listed to update the AUTOSTATS for tables looks for the table setting AUTOSTATS_ENABLED=FALSE, and wasn’t being found after upgrading to 7.0.
if echo "$show_create_table" | grep -q "AUTOSTATS_ENABLED=FALSE"

Thanks for pointing that out, that part of the documentation is outdated and we’ll get it updated.

A quick fix is to change the grep from “AUTOSTATS_ENABLED=FALSE” to “AUTOSTATS_HISTOGRAM_MODE=OFF” which would work to detect tables that were upgraded from 6 to 7 and have not yet had autostats enabled.

Excellent, thank you
