Working as a Percona Support Engineer, every day we are seeing lots of issues related to MySQL replication. One very common issue is slave lagging. There are many reasons for slave lag but one common reason is that queries are taking more time on slave then master. How to check and log those long-running queries? From MySQL 5.1, log-slow-slave-statements variable was introduced, which you can enable on slave and log slow queries. But what if you want to log slow queries on slave in earlier versions like MySQL 5.0? There is a good solution/workaround:[Read more...]
This blog, MySQLPerformanceBlog.com, is powered by WordPress, but we never really looked into what kind of queries to MySQL are used by WordPress. So for couple months we ran a Query Analytics (part of Percona Cloud Tools) agent there, and now it is interesting to take a look on queries. Query Analytics uses reports produced by pt-query-digest, but it is quite different as it allows to see trends and dynamics of particular query, in contrast to pt-query-digest, which is just one static report.
Why looking into queries important? I gave an intro in my previous post from this series.
So Query Analytics give the report on the top queries. How to detect which[Read more...]
I had the chance to work on an interesting case last week, and I thought I’d share what I think is a little known goodie from Percona Toolkit for MySQL called pt-query-digest.
One customer was suffering from periods of high load on their database server, leading to degraded application performance, and sometimes even short moments of downtime. As usual with these cases, we set up pt-stalk to trigger a capture if Threads_running went above a known[Read more...]
On April 3 at 10 a.m. PST, I’ll be giving a webinar titled “5 Percona Toolkit Tools for MySQL That Could Save Your Day.” In this presentation you’ll learn how to perform typical but challenging MySQL database administration tasks.
My focus will be on the following tools:
When you process MySQL slow query logs using pt-query-digest you can store samples of each query into query_review table and historical values for review trend analysis into query_review_history table. But it could be difficult to easily browse those tables without a good GUI tool.
For the visual browsing of tables created by pt-query-digest you may want to use some kind of web tools besides phpMyAdmin
This is a advanced, but easy to install, ui
You can use pt-query-digest to process a MySQL slow query log and store historical values for review trend analysis into query_review_history table. According to its official documentation you can populate many columns in that table but there are other important ones such as ‘user’, ‘host’, ‘db’ which are not included by default. I will explain how to implement this.
Also the documentation says:
Any columns not mentioned above are inspected to see if they follow a certain naming convention. The column is special if the name ends with an underscore
