| slow_query_log      | ON                                       |
| slow_query_log_file | /mysqllog/slow_log/slow_queries_3306.log |
+---------------------+------------------------------------------+

2, stop the slow log server.

mysql> show variables like %slow%;mysql> set global slow_query_log=0;
Query OK, 0 rows affected (0.27 sec)

| slow_query_log_file | /mysqllog/slow_log/slow_queries_3306_new.log |
+---------------------+----------------------------------------------+
