MySQL 5.6 Reference Manual  /  ...  /  Performance Schema Wait Event Tables

22.9.4 Performance Schema Wait Event Tables

These tables store wait events:

The following sections describe those tables. There are also summary tables that aggregate information about wait events; see Section 22.9.9.1, “Event Wait Summary Tables”.

Wait Event Configuration

To enable collection of wait events, enable the relevant instruments and consumers.

The setup_instruments table contains instruments with names that begin with wait. For example:

mysql> SELECT * FROM setup_instruments
    -> WHERE NAME LIKE 'wait/io/file/innodb%';
+--------------------------------------+---------+-------+
| NAME                                 | ENABLED | TIMED |
+--------------------------------------+---------+-------+
| wait/io/file/innodb/innodb_data_file | YES     | YES   |
| wait/io/file/innodb/innodb_log_file  | YES     | YES   |
| wait/io/file/innodb/innodb_temp_file | YES     | YES   |
+--------------------------------------+---------+-------+
mysql> SELECT * FROM setup_instruments WHERE
    -> NAME LIKE 'wait/io/socket/%';
+----------------------------------------+---------+-------+
| NAME                                   | ENABLED | TIMED |
+----------------------------------------+---------+-------+
| wait/io/socket/sql/server_tcpip_socket | NO      | NO    |
| wait/io/socket/sql/server_unix_socket  | NO      | NO    |
| wait/io/socket/sql/client_connection   | NO      | NO    |
+----------------------------------------+---------+-------+

To modify collection of wait events, change the ENABLED and TIMING columns of the relevant instruments. For example:

mysql> UPDATE setup_instruments SET ENABLED = 'YES', TIMED = 'YES'
    -> WHERE NAME LIKE 'wait/io/socket/sql/%';

The setup_consumers table contains consumer values with names corresponding to the current and recent wait event table names. These consumers may be used to filter collection of wait events. The wait consumers are disabled by default:

mysql> SELECT * FROM setup_consumers WHERE NAME LIKE '%waits%';
+---------------------------+---------+
| NAME                      | ENABLED |
+---------------------------+---------+
| events_waits_current      | NO      |
| events_waits_history      | NO      |
| events_waits_history_long | NO      |
+---------------------------+---------+

To enable all wait consumers, do this:

mysql> UPDATE setup_consumers SET ENABLED = 'YES'
    -> WHERE NAME LIKE '%waits%';

The setup_timers table contains a row with a NAME value of wait that indicates the unit for wait event timing. The default unit is CYCLE.

mysql> SELECT * FROM setup_timers WHERE NAME = 'wait';
+------+------------+
| NAME | TIMER_NAME |
+------+------------+
| wait | CYCLE      |
+------+------------+

To change the timing unit, modify the TIMER_NAME value:

mysql> UPDATE setup_timers SET TIMER_NAME = 'NANOSECOND'
    -> WHERE NAME = 'wait';

For additional information about configuring event collection, see Section 22.2, “Performance Schema Configuration”.
