Now that TiKV has been deployed in a cluster, for example, I have deployed four nodes: tikv1, tikv2, tikv3, and tikv4. If I insert 100 million rows into the table ‘test’, how can I find out how much data is on the tikv1 server? Is there a way to query this through SQL?

You can check the space usage of tikv detail in the monitoring to see how much it has increased. If that doesn’t work, you can look at the estimated value in the system table, which is similar to how you query in MySQL, but it’s just an estimate.

You can check the data volume, used space, remaining space, and the number of leaders and regions for each store on each node in the TiKV Grafana monitoring panel.

TiKV has two methods for distributed data storage: Hash and Range.

Hash: Hashes the key and selects the corresponding storage node based on the hash value.

Range: Divides the key into ranges, with a continuous segment of keys stored on a single storage node.

The Raft protocol ensures distributed data storage and data consistency through the Raft consensus algorithm, while also attempting to evenly distribute data across all nodes in the cluster.

I looked through my notebook, not sure if this can still be used:

FROM information_schema.tables
WHERE TABLE_SCHEMA = 'your_database_name' AND TABLE_NAME = 'test';

You can’t check the TiKV data volume with this either.

You want to check how much data a specific table has on each TiKV node, right?

This is good, give it a try.

TiKV-Details Panel → Cluster

  • Store size: The size of the storage space used by each TiKV instance
  • Available size: The size of the available storage space for each TiKV instance
  • Capacity size: The storage capacity size of each TiKV instance
  • Leader: The number of leaders for each TiKV instance
  • Region: The number of Regions for each TiKV instance

It should only be able to check the data size, not which record is on which TiKV node, right?

How to estimate the size of a table in TiDB? Try modifying the SQL a bit.

You can check the record location. If the primary key is int or bigint, it is very convenient. Using show table xxx regions allows you to see which region the data is on.
