MySQL 8.0 Reference Manual  /  ...  /  The ps_trace_thread() Procedure

27.4.4.23 The ps_trace_thread() Procedure

Dumps all Performance Schema data for an instrumented thread to a .dot formatted graph file (for the DOT graph description language). Each result set returned from the procedure should be used for a complete graph.

This procedure disables binary logging during its execution by manipulating the session value of the sql_log_bin system variable. That is a restricted operation, so the procedure requires privileges sufficient to set restricted session variables. See Section 5.1.9.1, “System Variable Privileges”.

Parameters
  • in_thread_id INT: The thread to trace.

  • in_outfile VARCHAR(255): The name to use for the .dot output file.

  • in_max_runtime DECIMAL(20,2): The maximum number of seconds (which can be fractional) to collect data. Use NULL to collect data for the default of 60 seconds.

  • in_interval DECIMAL(20,2): The number of seconds (which can be fractional) to sleep between data collections. Use NULL to sleep for the default of 1 second.

  • in_start_fresh BOOLEAN: Whether to reset all Performance Schema data before tracing.

  • in_auto_setup BOOLEAN: Whether to disable all other threads and enable all instruments and consumers. This also resets the settings at the end of the run.

  • in_debug BOOLEAN: Whether to include file:lineno information in the graph.

Example
mysql> CALL sys.ps_trace_thread(25, CONCAT('/tmp/stack-', REPLACE(NOW(), ' ', '-'), '.dot'), NULL, NULL, TRUE, TRUE, TRUE);
