15.16 InnoDB Integration with MySQL Performance Schema

This section provides a brief introduction to InnoDB integration with Performance Schema. For comprehensive Performance Schema documentation, see Chapter 23, MySQL Performance Schema.

You can profile certain internal InnoDB operations using the MySQL Performance Schema feature. This type of tuning is primarily for expert users who evaluate optimization strategies to overcome performance bottlenecks. DBAs can also use this feature for capacity planning, to see whether their typical workload encounters any performance bottlenecks with a particular combination of CPU, RAM, and disk storage; and if so, to judge whether performance can be improved by increasing the capacity of some part of the system.

To use this feature to examine InnoDB performance:

  • You must be generally familiar with how to use the Performance Schema feature. For example, you should know how enable instruments and consumers, and how to query performance_schema tables to retrieve data. For an introductory overview, see Section 23.1, “Performance Schema Quick Start”.

  • You should be familiar with Performance Schema instruments that are available for InnoDB. To view InnoDB-related instruments, you can query the setup_instruments table for instrument names that contain 'innodb'.

    mysql> SELECT * FROM setup_instruments WHERE NAME LIKE '%innodb%';

    For additional information about the instrumented InnoDB objects, you can query Performance Schema instances tables, which provide additional information about instrumented objects. Instance tables relevant to InnoDB include:

    Note

    Mutexes and RW-locks related to the InnoDB buffer pool are not included in this coverage; the same applies to the output of the SHOW ENGINE INNODB MUTEX command.

    For example, to view information about instrumented InnoDB file objects seen by the Performance Schema when executing file I/O instrumentation, you might issue the following query:

    mysql> SELECT * FROM file_instances WHERE EVENT_NAME LIKE '%innodb%'\G
    *************************** 1. row ***************************
     FILE_NAME: /path/to/mysql-5.7/data/ibdata1
    EVENT_NAME: wait/io/file/innodb/innodb_data_file
    OPEN_COUNT: 3
    *************************** 2. row ***************************
     FILE_NAME: /path/to/mysql-5.7/data/ib_logfile0
    EVENT_NAME: wait/io/file/innodb/innodb_log_file
    OPEN_COUNT: 2
    *************************** 3. row ***************************
     FILE_NAME: /path/to/mysql-5.7/data/ib_logfile1
    EVENT_NAME: wait/io/file/innodb/innodb_log_file
    OPEN_COUNT: 2
    *************************** 4. row ***************************
     FILE_NAME: /path/to/mysql-5.7/data/mysql/engine_cost.ibd
    EVENT_NAME: wait/io/file/innodb/innodb_data_file
    OPEN_COUNT: 3
    ...
  • You should be familiar with performance_schema tables that store InnoDB event data. Tables relevant to InnoDB-related events include:

    If you are only interested in InnoDB-related objects, use the clause WHERE EVENT_NAME LIKE '%innodb%' or WHERE NAME LIKE '%innodb%' (as required) when querying these tables.
