Click any item in the list to enter the detail page of the SQL statement to view more detailed information. This information includes the following parts:

  • The overview of SQL statements, which includes the SQL template, the SQL template ID, the current time range of displayed SQL executions, the number of execution plans and the database in which the SQL statement is executed (see area 1 in the image below).
  • The execution plan list: If the SQL statement has multiple execution plans, this list is displayed. You can select different execution plans, and the details of the selected plans are displayed below the list. If there is only one execution plan, the list is not displayed (see area 2 below).
  • Execution detail of plans, which displays the detailed information of the selected execution plans. See Execution plan in details (area 3 in the image below).

Execution details of plans

The execution detail of plans includes the following information:

  • SQL sample: The text of a certain SQL statement that is actually executed corresponding to the plan. Any SQL statement that has been executed within the time range might be used as a SQL sample.
  • Execution plan: For details of the execution plan, see Understand the Query Execution Plan. If multiple execution plans are selected, only (any) one of them is displayed.
  • For basic information, execution time, Coprocessor read, transaction, and slow query of the SQL statement, you can click the corresponding tab titles to switch among different information.

Execution details of plans

Basic Tab

The basic information of a SQL execution includes the table names, index name, execution count, and total latency. The Description column provides detailed description of each field.

Basic information

Time Tab

Click the Time tab, and you can see how long each stage of the execution plan lasts.

Note:

Because some operations might be performed in parallel within a single SQL statement, the cumulative duration of each stage might exceed the actual execution time of the SQL statement.

Execution time

Coprocessor Read Tab

Click the Coprocessor Read tab, and you can see information related to Coprocessor read.

Coprocessor read

Transaction Tab

Click the Transaction tab, and you can see information related to execution plans and transactions, such as the average number of written keys or the maximum number of written keys.

Transaction

Slow Query Tab

If an execution plan is executed too slowly, you can see its associated slow query records under the Slow Query tab.

Slow Query

The information displayed in this area has the same structure with the slow query page. See TiDB Dashboard Slow Query Page for details.
