MySQL 8.0 Reference Manual  /  MySQL Performance Schema  /  Performance Schema Queries

Pre-General Availability Draft: 2018-02-22

26.5 Performance Schema Queries

Pre-filtering limits which event information is collected and is independent of any particular user. By contrast, post-filtering is performed by individual users through the use of queries with appropriate WHERE clauses that restrict what event information to select from the events available after pre-filtering has been applied.

In Section 26.4.3, “Event Pre-Filtering”, an example showed how to pre-filter for file instruments. If the event tables contain both file and nonfile information, post-filtering is another way to see information only for file events. Add a WHERE clause to queries to restrict event selection appropriately:

mysql> SELECT THREAD_ID, NUMBER_OF_BYTES
       FROM events_waits_history
       WHERE EVENT_NAME LIKE 'wait/io/file/%'
       AND NUMBER_OF_BYTES IS NOT NULL;
+-----------+-----------------+
| THREAD_ID | NUMBER_OF_BYTES |
+-----------+-----------------+
|        11 |              66 |
|        11 |              47 |
|        11 |             139 |
|         5 |              24 |
|         5 |             834 |
+-----------+-----------------+

Most Performance Schema tables have indexes, which gives the optimizer access to execution plans other than full table scans. These indexes also improve performance for related objects, such as sys schema views that use those tables. For more information, see Section 8.2.4, “Optimizing Performance Schema Queries”.
