Regarding the tidb_auto_analyze_ratio parameter setting issue
In the official documentation

In the configuration page, the minimum value can be set to 0

However, in SQL 操作常见问题 | PingCAP 文档中心

In the fault diagnosis, fault scenario section, there is indeed the following configuration suggestion

I hope to optimize it and provide more reasonable parameter configuration suggestions.

This parameter can only be continuously optimized based on the specific system conditions during use, ultimately arriving at a more reasonable configuration.

That depends on the scenario. The default configuration is 0.5, which means that when more than 50% of the rows in the table are modified, it triggers an automatic ANALYZE update. As mentioned in the issue, because your analyze is not timely enough, you should lower this threshold a bit to make it trigger more effectively.

If there are no issues, there’s no need to change that parameter.

I understand what these parameters mean. Let me check if my understanding is correct. In the first image, it means that the range of this parameter value is from 0 to 1. In the second image, the document says that the minimum value of this parameter is 0.3 and cannot be set to a value smaller than 0.3. In the third image, it is set to 0.2. Isn’t it a bit confusing in the same document?

@heiwandou Is Figure 3 from this document?

| username: ShawnYan | Original post link

To be on the safe side, when enabling auto analyze, the minimum value of tidb_auto_analyze_ratio is 0.3.

Is this statement debatable?

The restriction of 0.3 was removed from TiDB v3.0.8 to make auto analyze more timely #14015

const (
	minAutoAnalyzeRatio = 0.3

Was the 0.3 restriction removed from TiDB v3.0.8?

I haven’t studied it in depth and haven’t managed the value of this parameter. It seems there are no issues when using it in the test environment.

If the table often has unstable execution plans, it might be better to regularly collect statistics using crontab.
