MySQL Memory Consumption and Open Prepare Statements

Today I read the nice post of Bhuvanesh on the memory leak issue they experienced with MySQL. In fact when you read the post, you realize that MySQL was just following the parameters that were setup (the default of max_prepare_stmt_count is 16382 even on 5.6).

I’m still convinced that the problem should be resolved in the application even if the use of ProxySQL for multiplexing is great.

In MySQL 8.0, we have enabled the …

MySQL and Memory: a love story (part 2)

We saw in the previous post that MySQL likes memory. We also saw how to perform operating system checks and some configuration changes for Swap and NUMA.

Today, we will check what MySQL server can tell us about its memory usage.

Introduced in MySQL 5.7 and enabled by default in MySQL 8.0, the Performance_Schema‘s Memory instrumentation allows us to have a better overview of what MySQL is allocating and why.

Let’s check on our MySQL server using SYS:

Pay attention that there is a bug related to how InnoDB Buffer Pool statistics are accounted in Performance_Schema. This is fixed in 8.0.13. …

MySQL: size of your tables – tricks and tips

Many of you already know how to retrieve the size of your dataset, schemas and tables in MySQL.

To summarize, below are the different queries you can run:

Dataset Size

I the past I was using something like this :

But now with sys schema being installed by default, I encourage you to use some of the formatting functions provided with it. The query to calculate the dataset is now:

SELECT sys.format_bytes(sum(data_length)) DATA,
       sys.format_bytes(sum(index_length)) INDEXES,
       sys.format_bytes(sum(data_length + index_length)) 'TOTAL SIZE'
FROM information_schema.TABLES ORDER  BY data_length + index_length;

Let’s see an example:

What is the best practice to get a list of all the queries running in MySQL (processlist) ?

If you are a MySQL DBA for a long time (like me), it’s very complicated to get rid of bad habits. One of them I really need to change is the way to retrieve the list of all the running queries (processlist).

Usually, I use SHOW FULL PROCESSLIST which is very convenient, but like querying the Information_Schema, this statement has negative performance consequences because it requires a mutex. Therefore, you should use Performance_Schema which doesn’t require a mutex and has minimal impact on server performance.

Let’s see the output of both commands:

mysql> show full processlist\G                                                                                                                   *************************** 1. row ***************************
     Id: 4
   User: event_scheduler
   Host: localhost
     db: NULL
Command: Daemon
   Time: 376338

How to know if a user never connected to the MySQL server since last boot ?

Performance_Schema is used most of the time to get metrics about queries and connections. But it can also provide other very useful information.

So today, I will show you how you can see a list of users that didn’t connect to MySQL since we restarted it (since last reboot).

SELECT DISTINCT mu.user FROM mysql.user mu
LEFT JOIN performance_schema.users psu
ON mu.user = psu.user
WHERE psu.user IS NULL
AND mu.user NOT IN ('mysql.infoschema', 'mysql.session', 'mysql.sys')
ORDER BY mu.user;

Example:

mysql> SELECT DISTINCT mu.user FROM mysql.user mu
    ->       LEFT JOIN performance_schema.users psu 
    ->       ON mu.user = psu.user  
    ->       AND mu.user NOT IN ('mysql.infoschema', 'mysql.session', 'mysql.sys') …

MySQL 8.0: Statements Latency Histograms

At the end we all agree that what really matters is the Query Response Time, isn’t it ?

MySQL 8.0 engineers have added more visibility in the summary tables as explained in this previous post. But to add more details, now the Performance_Schema also collects the statements latency and provide their distribution thanks to the collected histogram data.

Two tables have been added to Performance_Schema:

  • events_statements_histogram_by_digest: details about latency related to schema and query digest
  • events_statements_histogram_global: global latency summary across all schemas and queries

Let’s have a look at what we can see: …

MySQL 8.0 : Digest Query Samples in Performance_Schema

Today, yet another blog post about improvements in MySQL 8.0 related to Performance_Schema. Before MySQL 8.0 it was not always easy to get an example of the queries you could find in Performance_Schema when looking for statements summaries. You had to link several tables (even from sys) to achieve this goal as I explained it in this post.

Now in MySQL 8.0, we have changed the table events_statements_summary_by_digest. This table now contains 6 extra columns:

  • QUANTILE_95 : stores the 95th percentile of the statement latency, in …

MySQL 8.0 : meta-data added to Performance_Schema’s Instruments

In MySQL 8.0, the engineers have added useful meta-data to the table SETUP_INSTRUMENT. This table lists the classes of instrumented objects for which events can be collected.

To the NAME, ENABLES and TIMED columns, were added PROPERTIES, VOLATILITY and DOCUMENTATION.

Let’s have a quick look at these new columns:

PROPERTIES can have the following values

  • global_statistics: only global summaries are available for this instrument. Example: memory/performance_schema/metadata_locks that return the memory used for table performance_schema.metadata_locks

MySQL Group Replication: who is the primary master – updated!

Some time ago I wrote this article explaining how to find which node was the Primary Master in a MySQL Group Replication cluster running in Single-Primary Mode.

In the latest release of Group Replication, MySQL 8.0.2 dmr, Jaideep improved the visibility of Group Replication extending the performance_schema tables (see his article).

Thanks to these improvements, it’s now very easy to find which host is acting a Primary-Master. This is the query you can use:

mysql-sql> SELECT MEMBER_HOST as `PRIMARY` 
           FROM performance_schema.replication_group_members 
           WHERE MEMBER_ROLE='PRIMARY';
+---------+
| PRIMARY |
+---------+
| mysql3  |
+---------+
