I've been looking at SHOW PROFILES, which seems ideal for what I am doing.

However, I've noticed a warning that SHOW PROFILES is being deprecated and that PERFORMANCE_SCHEMA should be used instead. In addition, I cannot find any information about how to use PERFORMANCE_SCHEMA to benchmark individual session queries in the same manner as SHOW PROFILES.
