Introduction When people think about Perconaâ€™s microslow patch immediately a question arises how much logging impacts on performance. When we do performance audit often we log every query to find not only slow queries. A query may take less than a second to execute, but a huge number of such queries may significantly load a […]
Occasionally there is a need to see what queries reach MySQL. The database provides several ways to share that information with you. One is called general log activated with
in MySQL 5.1+) start-up parameter. The log writes any query being executed by MySQL to a file with limited amount of additional information. […]
