MySQL 8.0 Reference Manual Including MySQL NDB Cluster 8.0 The binary_log_transaction_compression_stats Table

This table shows statistical information for transaction payloads written to the binary log and relay log, and can be used to calculate the effects of enabling binary log transaction compression. For information on binary log transaction compression, see Section, “Binary Log Transaction Compression”.

The binary_log_transaction_compression_stats table is populated only when the server instance has a binary log, and the system variable binlog_transaction_compression is set to ON. The statistics cover all transactions written to the binary log and relay log from the time the server was started or the table was truncated. Compressed transactions are grouped by the compression algorithm used, and uncompressed transactions are grouped together with the compression algorithm stated as NONE, so the compression ratio can be calculated.

The binary_log_transaction_compression_stats table has these columns:

The binary_log_transaction_compression_stats table has no indexes.

TRUNCATE TABLE is permitted for the binary_log_transaction_compression_stats table.
