For an extensive description of the table columns, see Section 13.7.5.31, “SHOW PROCESSLIST Syntax”.

Notes:

  • The PROCESSLIST table is a nonstandard table. It was added in MySQL 5.1.7.

  • Like the output from the corresponding SHOW statement, the PROCESSLIST table will only show information about your own threads, unless you have the PROCESS privilege, in which case you will see information about other threads, too. As an anonymous user, you cannot see any rows at all.

  • If an SQL statement refers to INFORMATION_SCHEMA.PROCESSLIST, MySQL populates the entire table once, when statement execution begins, so there is read consistency during the statement. There is no read consistency for a multi-statement transaction, though.

The following statements are equivalent:

SELECT * FROM INFORMATION_SCHEMA.PROCESSLIST

SHOW FULL PROCESSLIST
