Check Cluster Status

After a TiDB cluster is deployed, you need to check whether the cluster runs normally. This document introduces how to check the cluster status using TiUP commands, TiDB Dashboard and Grafana, and how to log into the TiDB database to perform simple SQL operations.

Check the TiDB cluster status

This section describes how to check the TiDB cluster status using TiUP commands, TiDB Dashboard, and Grafana.

Use TiUP

Use the tiup cluster display <cluster-name> command to check the cluster status. For example:

tiup cluster display tidb-test

Expected output: If the Status information of each node is Up, the cluster runs normally.

Use TiDB Dashboard

  1. Log in to TiDB Dashboard at ${pd-ip}:${pd-port}/dashboard. The username and password is the same as that of the TiDB root user. If you have modified the root password, enter the modified password. The password is empty by default.


  2. The home page displays the node information in the TiDB cluster.


Use Grafana

  1. Log in to the Grafana monitoring at ${Grafana-ip}:3000. The default username and password are both admin.

  2. To check the TiDB port status and load monitoring information, click Overview.


Log in to the database and perform simple operations

Log in to the database by running the following command:

mysql -u root -h ${tidb_server_host_IP_address} -P 4000

${tidb_server_host_IP_address} is one of the IP addresses set for tidb_servers when you initialize the cluster topology file, such as

  • Check the version of TiDB:

    select tidb_version()\G

  • Create a table named tab_tidb:

    CREATE TABLE `tab_tidb` ( `id` int(11) NOT NULL AUTO_INCREMENT, `name` varchar(20) NOT NULL DEFAULT '', `age` int(11) NOT NULL DEFAULT 0, `version` varchar(20) NOT NULL DEFAULT '', PRIMARY KEY (`id`), KEY `idx_age` (`age`));

  • View the entries in tab_tidb:

    select * from tab_tidb;

    Expected output:
