10.22.1 The component_scheduler_tasks Table

The component_scheduler_tasks table contains a row for each scheduled task. Each row contains information about the ongoing progress of a task that applications, components, and plugins can implement, optionally, using the scheduler component (see Scheduler Component). For example, the audit_log server plugin utilizes the scheduler component to run a regular, recurring flush of its memory cache:

mysql> select * from performance_schema.component_scheduler_tasks\G
*************************** 1. row ***************************
            NAME: plugin_audit_log_flush_scheduler
          STATUS: WAITING
         COMMENT: Registered by the audit log plugin. Does a periodic refresh of the audit log 
                  in-memory rules cache by calling audit_log_flush
INTERVAL_SECONDS: 100
       TIMES_RUN: 5
    TIMES_FAILED: 0
1 row in set (0.02 sec)

The component_scheduler_tasks table has the following columns:

  • NAME

    The name supplied during the registration.

  • STATUS

    The values are:

    • RUNNING if the task is active and being executed.

    • WAITING if the task is idle and waiting for the background thread to pick it up or waiting for the next time it needs to be run to arrive.

  • COMMENT

    A compile-time comment provided by an application, component, or plugin. In the previous example, MySQL Enterprise Audit provides the comment using a server plugin named audit_log.

  • INTERVAL_SECONDS

    The time in seconds to run a task, which an application, component, or plugin provides. MySQL Enterprise Audit enables you to specify this value using the audit_log_flush_interval_seconds system variable.

  • TIMES_RUN

    A counter that increments by one every time the task runs successfully. It wraps around.

  • TIMES_FAILED

    A counter that increments by one every time the execution of the task fails. It wraps around.
