patrickbray commented on issue #609: Don't make spans for comments or SET statements in SQL
   Firstly thanks for all the awesome work on Zipkin and this instrumentation @adriancole
   I ran into this issue today and have forked the mysql TracingStatementInterceptor locally
and introduced a regex for excluding certain SQL statements. i.e. 
   private Pattern exclude = Pattern.compile("(set.+)|(commit)|(select @@session.tx_read_only)",
       public ResultSetInternalMethods preProcess(String sql, Statement interceptedStatement,
                                                  Connection connection) {
           // When running a prepared statement, sql will be null and we must fetch the sql
from the statement itself
           if (interceptedStatement instanceof PreparedStatement) {
               sql = ((PreparedStatement) interceptedStatement).getPreparedSql();
           if (exclude.matcher(sql).matches()) {
               return null;
   This works for us at the moment as we are generally using this locally to help identify
perf issues etc but not sure this is a solution you would want to add for this issue? If so
would be more than willing to submit a PR. 
   I guess some concerns would be the performance impact of adding a regex as part of this
instrumentation and possibly making this regex configurable? Though not sure what the best
approach for that would be?
   I also ran into an interesting deadlock issue when 1st adding this instrumentation to an
existing Spring Boot / Sleuth application with a c3po connection pool as outlined [here](
in case anyone else has a similar issue.
