On a MySQL 5.5.62 server, with InnoDB tables, I run mytop, and in the "qps now" field it reports something like 40-70. The historical qps is about 60.
I then hit "m" to see the qps value as each second passes, and the only number that pops up is "1". Never less than 1, never more than 1. Steady 1.
What is going on? Is this utilily reliable?
Should I perhaps drop it and rely on the "show status" of the server, getting the "Queries" value twice in a row, subtracting and dividing by the time that elapsed? When I do that, I get about 40-70, as the main dashboard mytop page indicates.
