Finding and killing long running InnoDB transactions with Events

I’ve seen a number of solutions for finding long running transactions or sessions within InnoDB / MySQL now.

MySQL system status snapshots using the MySQL Enterprise Monitor Agent

MySQL Enterprise Monitor collects a huge amount of information about MySQL and the systems that it runs on. To do this, it employs an “Agent” to collect these statistics.

This can either sit locally to the database server, or on a remote host – perhaps even the same host as the Dashboard server if you decide you don’t want to distribute it to many boxes – and checks when it is local or remote, to decide whether to collect OS statistics or not. A single agent can monitor either a single or multiple instances from the same process.

I reported a bug about SHOW BINLOG EVENTS not working with relay logs a couple of years ago - Bug #28777.

It’s now been fixed in MySQL 5.4, by adding a new SHOW statement - SHOW RELAYLOG EVENTS.

The replication team are really hammering through things at the moment - Kudos!
