Demonstrations of dbslower, the Linux eBPF/bcc version.
dbslower traces queries served by a MySQL or PostgreSQL server, and prints
those that exceed a latency (query time) threshold. By default a threshold of
1 ms is used. For example:
# dbslower mysql
Tracing database queries for pids 25776 slower than 1 ms...
TIME(s) PID MS QUERY
1.315800 25776 2000.999 call getproduct(97)
3.360380 25776 3.226 call getproduct(6)
^C
This traced two queries slower than 1ms, one of which is very slow: over 2
seconds. We can filter out the shorter ones and keep only the really slow ones:
# dbslower mysql -m 1000
Tracing database queries for pids 25776 slower than 1000 ms...
TIME(s) PID MS QUERY
1.421264 25776 2002.183 call getproduct(97)
3.572617 25776 2001.381 call getproduct(97)
5.661411 25776 2001.867 call getproduct(97)
7.748296 25776 2001.329 call getproduct(97)
^C
This looks like a pattern -- we keep making this slow query every 2 seconds
or so, and it takes approximately 2 seconds to run.
By default, dbslower will try to detect mysqld and postgres processes, but if
necessary, you can specify the process ids with the -p switch:
# dbslower mysql -p $(pidof mysql)
Tracing database queries for pids 25776 slower than 1 ms...
TIME(s) PID MS QUERY
2.002125 25776 3.340 call getproduct(7)
2.045006 25776 2001.558 call getproduct(97)
4.131863 25776 2002.275 call getproduct(97)
6.190513 25776 3.248 call getproduct(33)
^C
Specifying 0 as the threshold will print all the queries:
# dbslower mysql -m 0
Tracing database queries for pids 25776 slower than 0 ms...
TIME(s) PID MS QUERY

Here we can see the MySQL connector initialization and connection establishment,
before the actual queries start coming in.
USAGE:
# dbslower -h
usage: dbslower.py [-h] [-v] [-p [PIDS [PIDS ...]]] [-x PATH] [-m THRESHOLD]
{mysql,postgres}
positional arguments:
{mysql,postgres} the database engine to use
optional arguments:
-h, --help show this help message and exit
-v, --verbose print the BPF program
-p [PID [PID ...]], --pid [PID [PID ...]]
the pid(s) to trace
-x PATH, --exe PATH path to binary
-m THRESHOLD, --threshold THRESHOLD
trace queries slower than this threshold (ms)
examples:
dbslower postgres # trace PostgreSQL queries slower than 1ms
dbslower postgres -p 188 322 # trace specific PostgreSQL processes
dbslower mysql -p 480 -m 30 # trace MySQL queries slower than 30ms
dbslower mysql -p 480 -v # trace MySQL queries and print the BPF program
dbslower mysql -x $(which mysqld) # trace MySQL queries with uprobes
You can’t perform that action at this time.
