Process list


MySQL 8.0.22 provides the Performance Schema processlist table which can be directly queried.

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

Version specific information

  • 8.0.12-1: The feature was ported from Percona Server for MySQL 5.7.



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

Column Name Description
‘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.’
‘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.’
