Group Replication - Extending Group Replication performance_schema tables

In MySQL 8.0.2, users will see the additional columns in the existing Group Replication Performance Schema tables which will provide extended information about Group Replication. Now user can view role and MySQL version of each member of the group, which earlier required a complex set of query. The user can also see additional statistics of each member of the group, like remote applier queue count, remote transactions applied, number of transactions proposed by member and number of proposed transactions rolled back by the group. These have been a constant request from the users of the Group Replication plugin for a very long time.

We have added new columns to the replication_group_member and replication_group_member_stats tables in performance_schema. There has been no changes to existing Group Replication performance_schema tables. You can find detail about the changes made below.


New columns added to performance_schema.replication_group_members:


Schema of performance_schema.replication_group_members post changes:

  • CHANNEL_NAME – Name of the group replication channel.
  • MEMBER_ID – Member UUID.
  • MEMBER_HOST – Network BIND address of the SQL access to the member.
  • MEMBER_PORT – Port of SQL access to the member.
  • MEMBER_STATE – Current state of this member.
  • MEMBER_ROLE – Member role in a group, PRIMARY or SECONDARY.
  • MEMBER_VERSION – The MySQL version of the member.

Sample output of performance_schema.replication_group_members for 3 members:


In this enhancement, the Group Replication will show information of each member in the performance_schema.replication_group_member_stats table. The local member information, the one where the query is performed, it is always the real time information. The information about remote members has a configured delay and this delay is controlled by group_replication_flow_control_period option, which is the period in which the group stats messages are exchanged.

New columns added to performance_schema.replication_group_member_stats:


Schema of performance_schema.replication_group_member_stats post changes:

  • CHANNEL_NAME – Name of the group replication channel.
  • VIEW_ID – Current view identifier for this group.
  • MEMBER_ID – Member UUID.
  • COUNT_TRANSACTIONS_IN_QUEUE – Number of transactions pending certification.
  • COUNT_TRANSACTIONS_CHECKED – Number of transactions already certified.
  • COUNT_CONFLICTS_DETECTED – Number of transactions that were negatively certified.
  • COUNT_TRANSACTIONS_ROWS_VALIDATING – Number of transactions with which one can execute certification with them, but have not been garbage collected.
  • TRANSACTIONS_COMMITTED_ALL_MEMBERS – Set of stable group transactions, that is, that all members did already committed.
  • LAST_CONFLICT_FREE_TRANSACTION – Latest transaction certified without conflicts.
  • COUNT_TRANSACTIONS_REMOTE_IN_APPLIER_QUEUE – Number of transaction received from the group waiting to be applied.
  • COUNT_TRANSACTIONS_REMOTE_APPLIED – Number of transactions received from the group which have been applied by the member.
  • COUNT_TRANSACTIONS_LOCAL_PROPOSED – Number of transaction forwarded by member to group for co-ordination.
  • COUNT_TRANSACTIONS_LOCAL_ROLLBACK – Number of transactions forwarded by member and got rolled back by the group.
