I have our DBAs looked into this and got some findings and feedback:

I see an deadlock for:

(1) = delete from records where domain_id=217

(2) = delete from records where domain_id=217

So something tries to delete everything for domain=217 while other
transactions have a lock on some of the records.

Adding an ORDER BY to the delete query for whole domains might prevent that
from happening.


I searched PowerDNS 4.0.5 source code and find the following occurrences of
the matching SQL statements. are they configurable or we have to patch the
source code in order to test?
