Understanding Execution Speed of the MySQL Slave. Assuming that the SQL Thread and IO Thread on the slave are in running states, it’s possible to understand the relative execution speeds of the master and the slave by monitoring the SBM value. A consistent ‘0’ value or a constant value indicates that the slave is executing at the same speed as the master.
