mysqldumpslow [options] [log_file ...]
The MySQL slow query log contains information about queries that take a
long time to execute (see Section 5.4.5, "The Slow Query Log").
mysqldumpslow parses MySQL slow query log files and summarizes their
Normally, mysqldumpslow groups queries that are similar except for the
particular values of number and string data values. It "abstracts"
these values to N and 'S' when displaying summary output. To modify
value abstracting behavior, use the -a and -n options.
Invoke mysqldumpslow like this:
shell> mysqldumpslow [options] [log_file ...]
Example of usage:
Reading mysql slow query log from /usr/local/mysql/data/mysqld57-slow.log
Count: 1 Time=4.32s (4s) Lock=0.00s (0s) Rows=0.0 (0), root[root]@localhost
insert into t2 select * from t1
Count: 3 Time=2.53s (7s) Lock=0.00s (0s) Rows=0.0 (0), root[root]@localhost
insert into t2 select * from t1 limit N
Count: 3 Time=2.13s (6s) Lock=0.00s (0s) Rows=0.0 (0), root[root]@localhost
insert into t1 select * from t1
mysqldumpslow supports the following options.

o -g pattern

o -h host_name
Host name of MySQL server for *-slow.log file name. The value can
contain a wildcard. The default is * (match all).
o -i name
Name of server instance (if using mysql.server startup script).
o -s sort_type
How to sort the output. The value of sort_type should be chosen
from the following list:
o t, at: Sort by query time or average query time
o l, al: Sort by lock time or average lock time
o r, ar: Sort by rows sent or average rows sent
o c: Sort by count
By default, mysqldumpslow sorts by average query time (equivalent
to -s at).
