MySQL 5.6 Reference Manual  /  ...  /  The INFORMATION_SCHEMA INNODB_BUFFER_POOL_STATS Table

21.30.3 The INFORMATION_SCHEMA INNODB_BUFFER_POOL_STATS Table

The INNODB_BUFFER_POOL_STATS table provides much of the same buffer pool information provided in SHOW ENGINE INNODB STATUS output. Much of the same information may also be obtained using InnoDB buffer pool server status variables.

The idea of making pages in the buffer pool young or not young refers to transferring them between the sublists at the head and tail of the buffer pool data structure. Pages made young take longer to age out of the buffer pool, while pages made not young are moved much closer to the point of eviction.

For related usage information and examples, see Section 14.15.5, “InnoDB INFORMATION_SCHEMA Buffer Pool Tables”.

The INNODB_BUFFER_POOL_STATS table has these columns:

  • POOL_ID

    The buffer pool ID. This is an identifier to distinguish between multiple buffer pool instances.

  • POOL_SIZE

    The InnoDB buffer pool size in pages.

  • FREE_BUFFERS

    The number of free pages in the InnoDB buffer pool.

  • DATABASE_PAGES

    The number of pages in the InnoDB buffer pool containing data. This number includes both dirty and clean pages.

  • OLD_DATABASE_PAGES

    The number of pages in the old buffer pool sublist.

  • MODIFIED_DATABASE_PAGES

    The number of modified (dirty) database pages.

  • PENDING_DECOMPRESS

    The number of pages pending decompression.

  • PENDING_READS

    The number of pending reads.

  • PENDING_FLUSH_LRU

    The number of pages pending flush in the LRU.

  • PENDING_FLUSH_LIST

    The number of pages pending flush in the flush list.

  • PAGES_MADE_YOUNG

    The number of pages made young.

  • PAGES_NOT_MADE_YOUNG

    The number of pages not made young.

  • PAGES_MADE_YOUNG_RATE

    The number of pages made young per second (pages made young since the last printout / time elapsed).

  • PAGES_MADE_NOT_YOUNG_RATE

    The number of pages not made per second (pages not made young since the last printout / time elapsed).

  • NUMBER_PAGES_READ

    The number of pages read.

  • NUMBER_PAGES_CREATED

    The number of pages created.

  • NUMBER_PAGES_WRITTEN

    The number of pages written.

  • PAGES_READ_RATE

    The number of pages read per second (pages read since the last printout / time elapsed).

  • PAGES_CREATE_RATE

    The number of pages created per second (pages created since the last printout / time elapsed).

  • PAGES_WRITTEN_RATE

    The number of pages written per second (pages written since the last printout / time elapsed).

  • NUMBER_PAGES_GET

    The number of logical read requests.

  • HIT_RATE

    The buffer pool hit rate.

  • YOUNG_MAKE_PER_THOUSAND_GETS

    The number of pages made young per thousand gets.

  • NOT_YOUNG_MAKE_PER_THOUSAND_GETS

    The number of pages not made young per thousand gets.

  • NUMBER_PAGES_READ_AHEAD

    The number of pages read ahead.

  • NUMBER_READ_AHEAD_EVICTED

    The number of pages read into the InnoDB buffer pool by the read-ahead background thread that were subsequently evicted without having been accessed by queries.

  • READ_AHEAD_RATE

    The read-ahead rate per second (pages read ahead since the last printout / time elapsed).

  • READ_AHEAD_EVICTED_RATE

    The number of read-ahead pages evicted without access per second (read-ahead pages not accessed since the last printout / time elapsed).

  • LRU_IO_TOTAL

    Total LRU I/O.

  • LRU_IO_CURRENT

    LRU I/O for the current interval.

  • UNCOMPRESS_TOTAL

    The total number of pages decompressed.

  • UNCOMPRESS_CURRENT

    The number of pages decompressed in the current interval.
