MySQL Global status difference using single query

August 12, 2011

Have just read MySQL Global status difference using MySQL procedures / functions, by Andres Karlsson. Have commented, but realized I did not provide with a direct answer. In the comment, I suggested checking out a solution based on views, found in common_schema. But the solution in common_schema is split into two views, due to the fact views cannot handle derived tables subqueries.

Well, here's a single query to do that: it checks GLOBAL_STATUS twice, 10 seconds apart in the following sample. It uses SLEEP() to actually wait between the two reads. Yes, you can do that with a query.

The following query shows all GLOBAL_STATUS values that have changed during the sample period.

SELECT STRAIGHT_JOIN
   LOWER(gs0.VARIABLE_NAME) AS variable_name,
   gs0.VARIABLE_VALUE AS variable_value_0,
   gs1.VARIABLE_VALUE AS variable_value_1,
   (gs1.VARIABLE_VALUE - gs0.VARIABLE_VALUE) AS variable_value_diff,
   (gs1.VARIABLE_VALUE - gs0.VARIABLE_VALUE) / 10 AS variable_value_psec,
   (gs1.VARIABLE_VALUE - gs0.VARIABLE_VALUE) * 60 / 10 AS
variable_value_pminute
FROM
   (
     SELECT
       VARIABLE_NAME,
       VARIABLE_VALUE
     FROM
       INFORMATION_SCHEMA.GLOBAL_STATUS
     UNION ALL
     SELECT
       '',
       SLEEP(10)
     FROM DUAL
   ) AS gs0
   JOIN INFORMATION_SCHEMA.GLOBAL_STATUS gs1 USING (VARIABLE_NAME)
WHERE
   gs1.VARIABLE_VALUE != gs0.VARIABLE_VALUE
;

Some values don't make sense to do difference on (e.g. threads_connected), since they present with momentary status and are not incrementing as others (e.g. threads_created).

Happy SQLing!
