MySQL 5.7 Reference Manual  /  Group Replication  /  Monitoring Group Replication

17.4 Monitoring Group Replication

You can use the MySQL Performance Schema to monitor Group Replication. These Performance Schema tables display information specific to Group Replication:

These Performance Schema replication tables also show information relating to Group Replication:

  • replication_connection_status shows information regarding Group Replication, such as transactions received from the group and queued in the applier queue (relay log).

  • replication_applier_status shows the states of channels and threads relating to Group Replication. These can also be used to monitor what individual worker threads are doing.

Replication channels created by the Group Replication plugin are listed here:

  • group_replication_recovery: Used for replication changes related to distributed recovery.

  • group_replication_applier: Used for the incoming changes from the group, to apply transactions coming directly from the group.

For information about system variables affecting Group Replication, see Section 17.7.1, “Group Replication System Variables”. See Section 17.7.2, “Group Replication Status Variables”, for status variables providing information about Group Replication.


If you are monitoring one or more secondary instances using mysqladmin, you should be aware that a FLUSH STATUS statement executed by this utility creates a GTID event on the local instance which may impact future group operations.
