Description

The SHOW PROFILE and SHOW PROFILES statements display profiling information that indicates resource usage for statements executed during the course of the current session.

Profiling is controlled by the profiling session variable, which has a default value of 0 (OFF). Profiling is enabled by setting profiling to 1 or ON:

SET profiling = 1;

SHOW PROFILES displays a list of the most recent statements sent to the master. The size of the list is controlled by the profiling_history_size session variable, which has a default value of 15. The maximum value is 100. Setting the value to 0 has the practical effect of disabling profiling.

All statements are profiled except SHOW PROFILES and SHOW PROFILE, so you will find neither of those statements in the profile list. Malformed statements are profiled. For example, SHOW PROFILING is an illegal statement, and a syntax error occurs if you try to execute it, but it will show up in the profiling list.

SHOW PROFILE displays detailed information about a single statement. Without the FOR QUERY n clause, the output pertains to the most recently executed statement. If FOR QUERY n is included, SHOW PROFILE displays information for statement n. The values of n correspond to the Query_ID values displayed by SHOW PROFILES.

The LIMIT row_count clause may be given to limit the output to row_count rows. If LIMIT is given, OFFSET offset may be added to begin the output offset rows into the full set of rows.

By default, SHOW PROFILE displays Status and Duration columns. The Status values are like the State values displayed by SHOW PROCESSLIST, although there might be some minor differences in interpretation for the two statements for some status values (see http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.6/en/thread-information.html).

Optional type values may be specified to display specific additional types of information:

  • ALL displays all information
  • BLOCK IO displays counts for block input and output operations
  • CONTEXT SWITCHES displays counts for voluntary and involuntary context switches
  • CPU displays user and system CPU usage times
  • IPC displays counts for messages sent and received
  • MEMORY is not currently implemented
  • PAGE FAULTS displays counts for major and minor page faults
  • SOURCE displays the names of functions from the source code, together with the name and line number of the file in which the function occurs
  • SWAPS displays swap counts

Profiling is enabled per session. When a session ends, its profiling information is lost.

The Information Schema PROFILING Table contains similar information.
