[TiDB Usage Environment]

  • TiKV: 5 nodes
  • TiDB: 2 nodes
  • PD: 3 nodes

[Encountered Issues]

Recently, we have noticed many slow SQL queries in TiDB. Inserts into large tables generally take more than 1 second. Below is the time consumption during the execution phase:

This is for select queries, and we found that the time taken to fetch transactions from PD is also quite high, generally reaching over 100ms.


Could you please advise whether these slow queries are mainly caused by TiKV being slow or PD being slow? Is there any way to troubleshoot this?

You are using an insert select SQL, right? Otherwise, where does the coprocessor come from?

The above screenshot is the insert statement, and the one below is the select statement.

Have you checked the monitoring? How are the server’s IO and CPU resource usage?

| username: WalterWj | Original post link

The slow performance of pri write is generally due to disk issues. Slow tso retrieval is usually caused by high pressure on PD or poor network connection between TiDB server and PD.

You should post all the SQLs of this transaction.
It looks like the two-phase commit took 1.2 seconds.

You can also check if there are any locks.

How about checking the CPU and network status?

Take a look at the memory and CPU situation.

Check Grafana for memory, CPU, network, and I/O metrics to first analyze whether resources are sufficient.

How many CPUs are configured for the TiDB server, and how many CPUs are being used? If the TiDB server is busy, such a situation may occur.

Is the disk an HDD or an SSD?

For the issue with PD TSO, you can check the following images. Please take a screenshot and have a look.

All are SSDs.

Please help take a look.

The latency of your PD getting TSO is a bit high. Check the network status on the monitoring system.

| username: buddyyuan | Original post link

It seems there are some issues with the network. You can check the blackbox monitoring, mainly the tidb->pd and pd->tidb links.
