PROCESSLIST

PROCESSLIST, just like SHOW PROCESSLIST, is used to view the requests that are being handled.

The PROCESSLIST table has additional columns not present in SHOW PROCESSLIST:

  • A MEM column to show the memory used by the request that is being processed, in bytes.
  • A TxnStart column to show the start time of the transaction

Fields in the PROCESSLIST table are described as follows:

  • ID: The ID of the user connection.
  • USER: The name of the user who is executing PROCESS.
  • HOST: The address that the user is connecting to.
  • DB: The name of the currently connected default database.
  • COMMAND: The command type that PROCESS is executing.
  • TIME: The current execution duration of PROCESS, in seconds.
  • STATE: The current connection state.
  • INFO: The requested statement that is being processed.
  • MEM: The memory used by the request that is being processed, in bytes.
  • TxnStart: The start time of the transaction.

CLUSTER_PROCESSLIST

CLUSTER_PROCESSLIST is the cluster system table corresponding to PROCESSLIST. It is used to query the PROCESSLIST information of all TiDB nodes in the cluster. The table schema of CLUSTER_PROCESSLIST has one more column than PROCESSLIST, the INSTANCE column, which stores the address of the TiDB node this row of data is from.
