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 prints a summary of
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. The -a and -n
options can be used to modify value abstracting behavior.
Invoke mysqldumpslow like this:
shell> mysqldumpslow [options] [log_file ...]
mysqldumpslow supports the following options.
Display a help message and exit.
Do not abstract all numbers to N and strings to 'S'.
o --debug, -d
Run in debug mode.
o -g pattern
Consider only queries that match the (grep-style) 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).
Do not subtract lock time from total time.
o -n N
Abstract numbers with at least N digits within names.
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).
o -t N
Display only the first N queries in the output.
o --verbose, -v
Verbose mode. Print more information about what the program does.
