24.19 The INFORMATION_SCHEMA PROFILING Table
PROFILING table provides statement profiling information. Its contents correspond to the information produced by the
SHOW PROFILE and
SHOW PROFILES statements (see Section 18.104.22.168, “SHOW PROFILE Statement”). The table is empty unless the
profiling session variable is set to 1.
This table is deprecated and will be removed in a future MySQL release. Use the Performance Schema instead; see Section 25.19.1, “Query Profiling Using Performance Schema”.
PROFILING table has these columns:
A numeric statement identifier.
A sequence number indicating the display order for rows with the same
The profiling state to which the row measurements apply.
How long statement execution remained in the given state, in seconds.
User and system CPU use, in seconds.
How many voluntary and involuntary context switches occurred.
The number of block input and output operations.
The number of communication messages sent and received.
The number of major and minor page faults.
How many swaps occurred.
Information indicating where in the source code the profiled state executes.
