10.15.7.3 The table_lock_waits_summary_by_table Table

The table_lock_waits_summary_by_table table aggregates all table lock wait events, as generated by the wait/lock/table/sql/handler instrument. The grouping is by table.

This table contains information about internal and external locks:

  • An internal lock corresponds to a lock in the SQL layer. This is currently implemented by a call to thr_lock(). In event rows, these locks are distinguished by the OPERATION column, which has one of these values:

    read normal
    read with shared locks
    read high priority
    read no insert
    write allow write
    write concurrent insert
    write delayed
    write low priority
    write normal
  • An external lock corresponds to a lock in the storage engine layer. This is currently implemented by a call to handler::external_lock(). In event rows, these locks are distinguished by the OPERATION column, which has one of these values:

    read external
    write external

The table_lock_waits_summary_by_table table has these grouping columns to indicate how the table aggregates events: OBJECT_TYPE, OBJECT_SCHEMA, and OBJECT_NAME. These columns have the same meaning as in the events_waits_current table. They identify the table to which the row applies.

table_lock_waits_summary_by_table has the following summary columns containing aggregated values. As indicated in the column descriptions, some columns are more general and have values that are the same as the sum of the values of more fine-grained columns. For example, columns that aggregate all locks hold the sum of the corresponding columns that aggregate read and write locks. In this way, aggregations at higher levels are available directly without the need for user-defined views that sum lower-level columns.

  • COUNT_STAR, SUM_TIMER_WAIT, MIN_TIMER_WAIT, AVG_TIMER_WAIT, MAX_TIMER_WAIT

    These columns aggregate all lock operations. They are the same as the sum of the corresponding xxx_READ and xxx_WRITE columns.

  • COUNT_READ, SUM_TIMER_READ, MIN_TIMER_READ, AVG_TIMER_READ, MAX_TIMER_READ

    These columns aggregate all read-lock operations. They are the same as the sum of the corresponding xxx_READ_NORMAL, xxx_READ_WITH_SHARED_LOCKS, xxx_READ_HIGH_PRIORITY, and xxx_READ_NO_INSERT columns.

  • COUNT_WRITE, SUM_TIMER_WRITE, MIN_TIMER_WRITE, AVG_TIMER_WRITE, MAX_TIMER_WRITE

    These columns aggregate all write-lock operations. They are the same as the sum of the corresponding xxx_WRITE_ALLOW_WRITE, xxx_WRITE_CONCURRENT_INSERT, xxx_WRITE_LOW_PRIORITY, and xxx_WRITE_NORMAL columns.

  • COUNT_READ_NORMAL, SUM_TIMER_READ_NORMAL, MIN_TIMER_READ_NORMAL, AVG_TIMER_READ_NORMAL, MAX_TIMER_READ_NORMAL

    These columns aggregate internal read locks.

  • COUNT_READ_WITH_SHARED_LOCKS, SUM_TIMER_READ_WITH_SHARED_LOCKS, MIN_TIMER_READ_WITH_SHARED_LOCKS, AVG_TIMER_READ_WITH_SHARED_LOCKS, MAX_TIMER_READ_WITH_SHARED_LOCKS

    These columns aggregate internal read locks.

  • COUNT_READ_HIGH_PRIORITY, SUM_TIMER_READ_HIGH_PRIORITY, MIN_TIMER_READ_HIGH_PRIORITY, AVG_TIMER_READ_HIGH_PRIORITY, MAX_TIMER_READ_HIGH_PRIORITY

    These columns aggregate internal read locks.

  • COUNT_READ_NO_INSERT, SUM_TIMER_READ_NO_INSERT, MIN_TIMER_READ_NO_INSERT, AVG_TIMER_READ_NO_INSERT, MAX_TIMER_READ_NO_INSERT

    These columns aggregate internal read locks.

  • COUNT_READ_EXTERNAL, SUM_TIMER_READ_EXTERNAL, MIN_TIMER_READ_EXTERNAL, AVG_TIMER_READ_EXTERNAL, MAX_TIMER_READ_EXTERNAL

    These columns aggregate external read locks.

  • COUNT_WRITE_ALLOW_WRITE, SUM_TIMER_WRITE_ALLOW_WRITE, MIN_TIMER_WRITE_ALLOW_WRITE, AVG_TIMER_WRITE_ALLOW_WRITE, MAX_TIMER_WRITE_ALLOW_WRITE

    These columns aggregate internal write locks.

  • COUNT_WRITE_CONCURRENT_INSERT, SUM_TIMER_WRITE_CONCURRENT_INSERT, MIN_TIMER_WRITE_CONCURRENT_INSERT, AVG_TIMER_WRITE_CONCURRENT_INSERT, MAX_TIMER_WRITE_CONCURRENT_INSERT

    These columns aggregate internal write locks.

  • COUNT_WRITE_LOW_PRIORITY, SUM_TIMER_WRITE_LOW_PRIORITY, MIN_TIMER_WRITE_LOW_PRIORITY, AVG_TIMER_WRITE_LOW_PRIORITY, MAX_TIMER_WRITE_LOW_PRIORITY

    These columns aggregate internal write locks.

  • COUNT_WRITE_NORMAL, SUM_TIMER_WRITE_NORMAL, MIN_TIMER_WRITE_NORMAL, AVG_TIMER_WRITE_NORMAL, MAX_TIMER_WRITE_NORMAL

    These columns aggregate internal write locks.

  • COUNT_WRITE_EXTERNAL, SUM_TIMER_WRITE_EXTERNAL, MIN_TIMER_WRITE_EXTERNAL, AVG_TIMER_WRITE_EXTERNAL, MAX_TIMER_WRITE_EXTERNAL

    These columns aggregate external write locks.

TRUNCATE TABLE is permitted for table lock summary tables. It resets the summary columns to zero rather than removing rows.
