table contains the most recent 10,000 wait events that have
ended globally, across all threads. Wait events are not added
to the table until they have ended. When the table becomes
full, the oldest row is discarded when a new row is added,
regardless of which thread generated either row.
To change the table size, modify the
system variable at server startup.
