SHOW CLUSTER SETTING

The SHOW CLUSTER SETTING statement displays the values of cluster settings.

To configure cluster settings, use SET CLUSTER SETTING.

Note:

The SHOW statement for cluster settings is unrelated to the other SHOW statements: SHOW (session variable), SHOW CREATE, SHOW USERS, SHOW DATABASES, SHOW COLUMNS, SHOW GRANTS, and SHOW CONSTRAINTS.

Details

  • To display the value of a specific cluster setting, use the following syntax:

    SHOW CLUSTER SETTING <setting>;
    
  • To display the values of public cluster settings (i.e., cluster settings that are documented and for which tuning is supported), use one of the following:

    SHOW CLUSTER SETTINGS;
    
    SHOW PUBLIC CLUSTER SETTINGS;
    
  • To display the values of all cluster settings use one of the following:

    SHOW ALL CLUSTER SETTINGS;
    
    SHOW CLUSTER SETTING ALL;
    

    When you display all cluster settings, the table output includes a public column that denotes whether a setting is public or not.

Required privileges

Only members of the admin role can display cluster settings. By default, the root user belongs to the admin role.

Synopsis

SHOW CLUSTER SETTING var_name ALL SETTINGS ALL PUBLIC CLUSTER SETTINGS

Parameters

Parameter Description
var_name The name of the cluster setting (case-insensitive).
ALL Display all cluster settings.
PUBLIC Display only the public cluster settings.
By default, only public settings are listed by SHOW CLUSTER SETTINGS. SHOW PUBLIC CLUSTER SETTINGS and SHOW CLUSTER SETTINGS are equivalent.

Response

When you query multiple cluster settings (e.g., with SHOW CLUSTER SETTINGS, or with SHOW ALL CLUSTER SETTINGS), the following fields are returned:

Field Description
variable The name of the cluster setting.
value The value of the cluster setting.
setting_type The type of the cluster setting.
Possible values for setting_type include:
  • b (true or false)
  • z (size, in bytes)
  • d (duration)
  • e (one of a set of possible values)
  • f (floating-point value)
  • i (integer)
  • s (string)
description A brief description of the cluster setting, including possible values.
public true if the cluster setting is public.
This field is only included only if all cluster settings are displayed.

Examples

Show the value of a single cluster setting

Show the values of all public cluster settings
