MySQL 5.6 Reference Manual  /  ...  /  SHOW SLAVE STATUS Statement

13.7.5.35 SHOW SLAVE STATUS Statement

SHOW SLAVE STATUS

This statement provides status information on essential parameters of the replica threads. It requires either the SUPER or REPLICATION CLIENT privilege.

If you issue this statement using the mysql client, you can use a \G statement terminator rather than a semicolon to obtain a more readable vertical layout:

The following list describes the fields returned by SHOW SLAVE STATUS. For additional information about interpreting their meanings, see Section 8.14.7, “Replication Replica I/O Thread States”.

  • Slave_IO_State

    A copy of the State field of the SHOW PROCESSLIST output for the replica I/O thread. This tells you what the thread is doing: trying to connect to the source, waiting for events from the source, reconnecting to the source, and so on. For a listing of possible states, see Section 8.14.7, “Replication Replica I/O Thread States”.

  • Master_Host

    The source host that the replica is connected to.

  • Master_User

    The user name of the account used to connect to the source.

  • Master_Port

    The port used to connect to the source.

  • Connect_Retry

    The number of seconds between connect retries (default 60). This can be set with the CHANGE MASTER TO statement.

  • Master_Log_File

    The name of the source binary log file from which the I/O thread is currently reading.

  • Read_Master_Log_Pos

    The position in the current source binary log file up to which the I/O thread has read.

  • Relay_Log_File

    The name of the relay log file from which the SQL thread is currently reading and executing.

  • Relay_Log_Pos

    The position in the current relay log file up to which the SQL thread has read and executed.

  • Relay_Master_Log_File

    The name of the source binary log file containing the most recent event executed by the SQL thread.

  • Slave_IO_Running

    Whether the I/O thread is started and has connected successfully to the source. Internally, the state of this thread is represented by one of the following three values:

    • MYSQL_SLAVE_NOT_RUN.  The replica I/O thread is not running. For this state, Slave_IO_Running is No.

    • MYSQL_SLAVE_RUN_NOT_CONNECT.  The replica I/O thread is running, but is not connected to a replication source. For this state, Slave_IO_Running is Connecting.

    • MYSQL_SLAVE_RUN_CONNECT.  The replica I/O thread is running, and is connected to a replication source. For this state, Slave_IO_Running is Yes.

    The value of the Slave_running system status variable corresponds with this value.

  • Slave_SQL_Running

    Whether the SQL thread is started.

  • Replicate_Do_DB, Replicate_Ignore_DB

    The lists of databases that were specified with the --replicate-do-db and --replicate-ignore-db options, if any.

  • Replicate_Do_Table, Replicate_Ignore_Table, Replicate_Wild_Do_Table, Replicate_Wild_Ignore_Table

    The lists of tables that were specified with the --replicate-do-table, --replicate-ignore-table, --replicate-wild-do-table, and --replicate-wild-ignore-table options, if any.

  • Last_Errno, Last_Error

    These columns are aliases for Last_SQL_Errno and Last_SQL_Error.

    Issuing RESET MASTER or RESET SLAVE resets the values shown in these columns.

    Note

    When the replica SQL thread receives an error, it reports the error first, then stops the SQL thread. This means that there is a small window of time during which SHOW SLAVE STATUS shows a nonzero value for Last_SQL_Errno even though Slave_SQL_Running still displays Yes.

  • Skip_Counter

    The current value of the sql_slave_skip_counter system variable. See Section 13.4.2.4, “SET GLOBAL sql_slave_skip_counter Statement”.

  • Exec_Master_Log_Pos

    The position in the current source binary log file to which the SQL thread has read and executed, marking the start of the next transaction or event to be processed. You can use this value with the CHANGE MASTER TO statement's MASTER_LOG_POS option when starting a new replica from an existing replica, so that the new replica reads from this point. The coordinates given by (Relay_Master_Log_File, Exec_Master_Log_Pos) in the source's binary log correspond to the coordinates given by (Relay_Log_File, Relay_Log_Pos) in the relay log.

    When using a multithreaded replica (by setting slave_parallel_workers to a nonzero value), the value in this column actually represents a low-water mark, before which no uncommitted transactions remain. Because the current implementation allows execution of transactions on different databases in a different order on the replica than on the source, this is not necessarily the position of the most recently executed transaction.

  • Relay_Log_Space

    The total combined size of all existing relay log files.

  • Until_Condition, Until_Log_File, Until_Log_Pos

    The values specified in the UNTIL clause of the START SLAVE statement.

    Until_Condition has these values:

    • None if no UNTIL clause was specified

    • Master if the replica is reading until a given position in the source's binary log

    • Relay if the replica is reading until a given position in its relay log

    • SQL_BEFORE_GTIDS if the replica SQL thread is processing transactions until it has reached the first transaction whose GTID is listed in the gtid_set.

    • SQL_AFTER_GTIDS if the replica threads are processing all transactions until the last transaction in the gtid_set has been processed by both threads.

    • SQL_AFTER_MTS_GAPS if a multithreaded replica's SQL threads are running until no more gaps are found in the relay log.

    Until_Log_File and Until_Log_Pos indicate the log file name and position that define the coordinates at which the SQL thread stops executing.

    For more information on UNTIL clauses, see Section 13.4.2.5, “START SLAVE Statement”.

  • Master_SSL_Allowed, Master_SSL_CA_File, Master_SSL_CA_Path, Master_SSL_Cert, Master_SSL_Cipher, Master_SSL_CRL_File, Master_SSL_CRL_Path, Master_SSL_Key, Master_SSL_Verify_Server_Cert

    These fields show the SSL parameters used by the replica to connect to the source, if any.

    Master_SSL_Allowed has these values:

    • Yes if an SSL connection to the source is permitted

    • No if an SSL connection to the source is not permitted

    • Ignored if an SSL connection is permitted but the replica server does not have SSL support enabled

    The values of the other SSL-related fields correspond to the values of the MASTER_SSL_CA, MASTER_SSL_CAPATH, MASTER_SSL_CERT, MASTER_SSL_CIPHER, MASTER_SSL_CRL, MASTER_SSL_CRLPATH, MASTER_SSL_KEY, and MASTER_SSL_VERIFY_SERVER_CERT options to the CHANGE MASTER TO statement. See Section 13.4.2.1, “CHANGE MASTER TO Statement”.

  • Seconds_Behind_Master

    This field is an indication of how late the replica is:

    • When the replica is actively processing updates, this field shows the difference between the current timestamp on the replica and the original timestamp logged on the source for the event currently being processed on the replica.

    • When no event is currently being processed on the replica, this value is 0.

    In essence, this field measures the time difference in seconds between the replica SQL thread and the replica I/O thread. If the network connection between source and replica is fast, the replica I/O thread is very close to the source, so this field is a good approximation of how late the replica SQL thread is compared to the source. If the network is slow, this is not a good approximation; the replica SQL thread may quite often be caught up with the slow-reading replica I/O thread, so Seconds_Behind_Master often shows a value of 0, even if the I/O thread is late compared to the source. In other words, this column is useful only for fast networks.

    This time difference computation works even if the source and replica do not have identical clock times, provided that the difference, computed when the replica I/O thread starts, remains constant from then on. Any changes—including NTP updates—can lead to clock skews that can make calculation of Seconds_Behind_Master less reliable.

    In MySQL 5.6.9 and later, this field is NULL (undefined or unknown) if the replica SQL thread is not running, or if the SQL thread has consumed all of the relay log and the replica I/O thread is not running. Previously, this field was NULL if the replica SQL thread or the replica I/O thread was not running or was not connected to the source. (Bug #12946333) For example, if (prior to MySQL 5.6.9) the replica I/O thread was running but was not connected to the source and was sleeping for the number of seconds given by the CHANGE MASTER TO statement or --master-connect-retry option (default 60) before reconnecting, the value was NULL. Now in such cases, the connection to the source is not tested; instead, if the I/O thread is running but the relay log is exhausted, Seconds_Behind_Master is set to 0.

    The value of Seconds_Behind_Master is based on the timestamps stored in events, which are preserved through replication. This means that if a source M1 is itself a replica of M0, any event from M1's binary log that originates from M0's binary log has M0's timestamp for that event. This enables MySQL to replicate TIMESTAMP successfully. However, the problem for Seconds_Behind_Master is that if M1 also receives direct updates from clients, the Seconds_Behind_Master value randomly fluctuates because sometimes the last event from M1 originates from M0 and sometimes is the result of a direct update on M1.

    When using a multithreaded replica, you should keep in mind that this value is based on Exec_Master_Log_Pos, and so may not reflect the position of the most recently committed transaction.

  • Last_IO_Errno, Last_IO_Error

    The error number and error message of the most recent error that caused the I/O thread to stop. An error number of 0 and message of the empty string mean no error. If the Last_IO_Error value is not empty, the error values also appear in the replica's error log.

    I/O error information includes a timestamp showing when the most recent I/O thread error occurred. This timestamp uses the format YYMMDD hh:mm:ss, and appears in the Last_IO_Error_Timestamp column.

    Issuing RESET MASTER or RESET SLAVE resets the values shown in these columns.

  • Last_SQL_Errno, Last_SQL_Error

    The error number and error message of the most recent error that caused the SQL thread to stop. An error number of 0 and message of the empty string mean no error. If the Last_SQL_Error value is not empty, the error values also appear in the replica's error log.

    SQL error information includes a timestamp showing when the most recent SQL thread error occurred. This timestamp uses the format YYMMDD hh:mm:ss, and appears in the Last_SQL_Error_Timestamp column.

    Issuing RESET MASTER or RESET SLAVE resets the values shown in these columns.

  • Replicate_Ignore_Server_Ids

    In MySQL 5.6, you set a replica to ignore events from 0 or more sources using the IGNORE_SERVER_IDS option of the CHANGE MASTER TO statement. By default this is blank, and is usually modified only when using a circular or other multi-source replication setup. The message shown for Replicate_Ignore_Server_Ids when not blank consists of a comma-delimited list of one or more numbers, indicating the server IDs to be ignored. For example:

    	Replicate_Ignore_Server_Ids: 2, 6, 9
    Note

    Ignored_server_ids also shows the server IDs to be ignored, but is a space-delimited list, which is preceded by the total number of server IDs to be ignored. For example, if a CHANGE MASTER TO statement containing the IGNORE_SERVER_IDS = (2,6,9) option has been issued to tell a replica to ignore sources having the server ID 2, 6, or 9, that information appears as:

    	Ignored_server_ids: 3 2 6 9

    where 3 is the total number of server IDs being ignored.

    Replicate_Ignore_Server_Ids filtering is performed by the I/O thread, rather than by the SQL thread, which means that events which are filtered out are not written to the relay log. This differs from the filtering actions taken by server options such --replicate-do-table, which apply to the SQL thread.

  • Master_Server_Id

    The server_id value from the source.

  • Master_UUID

    The server_uuid value from the source.

  • Master_Info_File

    The location of the master.info file.

  • SQL_Delay

    The number of seconds that the replica must lag the source.

  • SQL_Remaining_Delay

    When Slave_SQL_Running_State is Waiting until MASTER_DELAY seconds after master executed event, this field contains the number of delay seconds remaining. At other times, this field is NULL.

  • Slave_SQL_Running_State

    The state of the SQL thread (analogous to Slave_IO_State). The value is identical to the State value of the SQL thread as displayed by SHOW PROCESSLIST; Section 8.14.8, “Replication Replica SQL Thread States”, provides a listing of possible states.

  • Master_Retry_Count

    The number of times the replica can attempt to reconnect to the source in the event of a lost connection. This value can be set using the MASTER_RETRY_COUNT option of the CHANGE MASTER TO statement (preferred) or the older --master-retry-count server option (still supported for backward compatibility).

  • Master_Bind

    The network interface that the replica is bound to, if any. This is set using the MASTER_BIND option for the CHANGE MASTER TO statement.

  • Last_IO_Error_Timestamp

    A timestamp in YYMMDD hh:mm:ss format that shows when the most recent I/O error took place.

  • Last_SQL_Error_Timestamp

    A timestamp in YYMMDD hh:mm:ss format that shows when the most recent SQL error occurred.

  • Retrieved_Gtid_Set

    The set of global transaction IDs corresponding to all transactions received by this replica. Empty if GTIDs are not in use.

    This is the set of all GTIDs that exist or have existed in the relay logs. Each GTID is added as soon as the Gtid_log_event is received. This can cause partially transmitted transactions to have their GTIDs included in the set.

    When all relay logs are lost due to executing RESET SLAVE or CHANGE MASTER TO, or due to the effects of the --relay-log-recovery option, the set is cleared. When relay_log_purge = 1, the newest relay log is always kept, and the set is not cleared.

  • Executed_Gtid_Set

    The set of global transaction IDs written in the binary log. This is the same as the value for the global gtid_executed system variable on this server, as well as the value for Executed_Gtid_Set in the output of SHOW MASTER STATUS on this server. Empty if GTIDs are not in use. See GTID Sets for more information.

  • Auto_Position

    1 if autopositioning is in use; otherwise 0.
