8.14.7 Replication Slave SQL Thread States

The following list shows the most common states you may see in the State column for a slave server SQL thread:

  • Waiting for the next event in relay log

    The initial state before Reading event from the relay log.

  • Reading event from the relay log

    The thread has read an event from the relay log so that the event can be processed.

  • Making temp file

    The thread is executing a LOAD DATA INFILE statement and is creating a temporary file containing the data from which the slave will read rows.

  • Slave has read all relay log; waiting for the slave I/O thread to update it

    The thread has processed all events in the relay log files, and is now waiting for the I/O thread to write new events to the relay log.

  • Waiting for slave mutex on exit

    A very brief state that occurs as the thread is stopping.

The State column for the I/O thread may also show the text of a statement. This indicates that the thread has read an event from the relay log, extracted the statement from it, and is executing it.
