How to Use the Show ProcessList in MySQL

This command is similar to that of an operating system command that shows all the processes.

In MySQL, this command, when executed, lists all of the processes that hold a valid connection to the database.

mysql SHOW PROCESSLIST

Typical output is as below

+-------+-----------------+------------------+----------------+---------+-------+-----------------------------+------------------+| Id    | User            | Host             | db             | Command | Time  | State                       | Info             |+-------+-----------------+------------------+----------------+---------+-------+-----------------------------+------------------+|     1 | event_scheduler | localhost        | NULL           | Daemon  | 11991 | Waiting for next activation | NULL             ||  2141 | dbConn          | MARIADBHOST:50244| platform       | Sleep   |     9 |                             | NULL             || 14430 | portal          | MYSQLDB:42526    | management     | Sleep   |    71 |                             | NULL             || 14435 | dbUser        | COREEL:37274     | NULL           | Query   |     0 | starting                    | SHOW PROCESSLIST |+-------+-----------------+------------------+----------------+---------+-------+-----------------------------+------------------+4 rows in set (0.02 sec)
