Analyze and Tune Performance

TiDB Cloud provides Statement Analysis and Key Visualizer to analyze performance.

  • Statement Analysis enables you to directly observe the SQL execution on the page, and easily locate performance problems without querying the system tables.

  • Key Visualizer helps you observe TiDB's data access patterns and data hotspots.

Statement Analysis

To use the statement analysis, perform the following steps:

  1. Navigate to the Diagnostics tab of a cluster. The Statement sub-tab displays by default.

  2. Select the time period to be analyzed in the time interval box. Then you can get the execution statistics of SQL statements of all databases in this period.

  3. (Optional) If you only care about certain databases, you can select the corresponding schema(s) in the next box to filter the results.

The results are displayed in the form of a table, and you can sort the results by different columns.
