The component_scheduler_tasks table contains a row for each scheduled task. Each row contains information about the ongoing progress of a task that applications, components, and plugins can implement, optionally, using the scheduler component (see Section 7.5.5, “Scheduler Component”). For example, the audit_log server plugin utilizes the scheduler component to run a regular, recurring flush of its memory cache:

mysql> select * from performance_schema.component_scheduler_tasks\G
*************************** 1. row ***************************
            NAME: plugin_audit_log_flush_scheduler
         COMMENT: Registered by the audit log plugin. Does a periodic refresh of the audit log 
                  in-memory rules cache by calling audit_log_flush
       TIMES_RUN: 5
1 row in set (0.02 sec)

The component_scheduler_tasks table has the following columns:

  • NAME

    The name supplied during the registration.


    The values are:

    • RUNNING if the task is active and being executed.

    • WAITING if the task is idle and waiting for the background thread to pick it up or waiting for the next time it needs to be run to arrive.


    A compile-time comment provided by an application, component, or plugin. In the previous example, MySQL Enterprise Audit provides the comment using a server plugin named audit_log.


    The time in seconds to run a task, which an application, component, or plugin provides. MySQL Enterprise Audit enables you to specify this value using the audit_log_flush_interval_seconds system variable.


    A counter that increments by one every time the task runs successfully. It wraps around.


    A counter that increments by one every time the execution of the task fails. It wraps around.
