MySQL 8.0.32
Source Code Documentation
DBUG Tags

The full documentation of the DBUG library is in files dbug/user.* in the MySQL source tree. Here are some of the DBUG tags we now use:

  • enter

    Arguments to the function.

  • exit

    Results from the function.

  • info

    Something that may be interesting.

  • warning

    When something does not go the usual route or may be wrong.

  • error

    When something went wrong.

  • loop

    Write in a loop, that is probably only useful when debugging the loop. These should normally be deleted when you are satisfied with the code and it has been in real use for a while.


Some tags specific to mysqld, because we want to watch these carefully:

  • trans

    Starting/stopping transactions.

  • quit

    info when mysqld is preparing to die.

  • query

    Print query.
