14.15.4 InnoDB Tablespace Monitor Output

Note

The InnoDB Tablespace Monitor is deprecated and may be removed in a future release.

The InnoDB Tablespace Monitor prints information about the file segments in the shared tablespace and validates the tablespace allocation data structures. The Tablespace Monitor does not describe file-per-table tablespaces created with the innodb_file_per_table option.

Example InnoDB Tablespace Monitor output:

END OF INNODB TABLESPACE MONITOR OUTPUT
=======================================

The Tablespace Monitor output includes information about the shared tablespace as a whole, followed by a list containing a breakdown for each segment within the tablespace.

In this example using the default page size, the tablespace consists of database pages that are 16KB each. The pages are grouped into extents of size 1MB (64 consecutive pages).

The initial part of the output that displays overall tablespace information has this format:

FILE SPACE INFO: id 0
size 13440, free limit 3136, free extents 28
not full frag extents 2: used pages 78, full frag extents 3
first seg id not used 0 23845

Overall tablespace information includes these values:

Individual segment information has this format:

SEGMENT id 0 15 space 0; page 2; res 160 used 160; full ext 2
fragm pages 32; free extents 0; not full extents 0: pages 0

Segment information includes these values:

id: The segment ID.

space, page: The tablespace number and page within the tablespace where the segment inode is located. A tablespace number of 0 indicates the shared tablespace. InnoDB uses inodes to keep track of segments in the tablespace. The other fields displayed for a segment (id, res, and so forth) are derived from information in the inode.

res: The number of pages allocated (reserved) for the segment.

used: The number of allocated pages in use by the segment.

full ext: The number of extents allocated for the segment that are completely used.

fragm pages: The number of initial pages that have been allocated to the segment.

free extents: The number of extents allocated for the segment that are completely unused.

not full extents: The number of extents allocated for the segment that are partially used.

pages: The number of pages used within the not-full extents.

When a segment grows, it starts as a single page, and InnoDB allocates the first pages for it one at a time, up to 32 pages (this is the fragm pages value). After that, InnoDB allocates complete extents. InnoDB can add up to 4 extents at a time to a large segment to ensure good sequentiality of data.

For the example segment shown earlier, it has 32 fragment pages, plus 2 full extents (64 pages each), for a total of 160 pages used out of 160 pages allocated. The following segment has 32 fragment pages and one partially full extent using 14 pages for a total of 46 pages used out of 96 pages allocated:

SEGMENT id 0 1 space 0; page 2; res 96 used 46; full ext 0
fragm pages 32; free extents 0; not full extents 1: pages 14

It is possible for a segment that has extents allocated to it to have a fragm pages value less than 32 if some of the individual pages have been deallocated subsequent to extent allocation.
