Process List

This page describes Percona changes to both the standard MySQL SHOW PROCESSLIST command and the standard MySQL INFORMATION_SCHEMA table PROCESSLIST.

The changes that have been made as of version 5.6 of the server are:

Version Specific Information

  • 5.6.5-60.0:
    • Added column TIME_MS to table PROCESSLIST.
  • 5.6.11-60.3:
    • Added ROWS_SENT and ROWS_EXAMINED columns to table PROCESSLIST.`
  • 5.6.27-75.0
    • Added TID column to table PROCESSLIST.



This table implements modifications to the standard MySQL INFORMATION_SCHEMA table PROCESSLIST.

  • ID – The connection identifier.
  • USER – The MySQL user who issued the statement.
  • HOST – The host name of the client issuing the statement.
  • DB – The default database, if one is selected, otherwise NULL.
  • COMMAND – The type of command the thread is executing.
  • TIME – The time in seconds that the thread has been in its current state.
  • STATE – An action, event, or state that indicates what the thread is doing.
  • INFO – The statement that the thread is executing, or NULL if it is not executing any statement.
  • TIME_MS – The time in milliseconds that the thread has been in its current state.
  • ROWS_EXAMINED – The number of rows examined by the statement being executed (NOTE: This column is not updated for each examined row so it does not necessarily show an up-to-date value while the statement is executing. It only shows a correct value after the statement has completed.).
  • ROWS_SENT – The number of rows sent by the statement being executed.
  • ROWS_READ – The number of rows read by the statement being executed.
  • TID – The Linux Thread ID. For Linux, this corresponds to light-weight process ID (LWP ID) and can be seen in the ps -L output. In case when Thread Pool is enabled, “TID” is not null for only currently executing statements and statements received via “extra” connection.
