SQL Tuning

Updated at: Sep 29, 2020 GMT+08:00


SQL tuning helps you identify the SQL statements that are executed frequently or slowly, and consume large volumes of resources. You can optimize the database according to the diagnosis suggestions to ensure database stability.


  • You have logged in to a MySQL DB instance on the DAS console.
  • SQL tuning has been performed in the SQL window.


  1. On the top menu bar, choose SQL Operations > SQL Window. On the displayed page, click Tune SQL.

    • The SQL tuning function obtains the table structure and data distribution information (non-original). The obtained data is only for logic diagnosis, but not stored on the DAS server.
    • Obtaining table structure and data distribution information may add additional loads to the DB instance, but has little impact on its performance.
    • Only the SQL diagnosis history is stored on the DAS server. You can delete it from the server permanently.
