In PostgreSQL, EXPLAIN or EXPLAIN ANALYZE will show the estimate cost of executing a query. But EXPLAIN in MySQL doesn't provide this information. How can I get the estimate cost without installation of other tools? I'm using MySQL-5.6.16.
- Run your
SHOW STATUS LIKE 'last_query_cost'
- if the answer was 0 rerun the query with
select SQL_NO_CACHE ...and do step 2 above again
