Information Schema INDEX_STATISTICS Table

MariaDB 5.2.0

The INDEX_STATISTICS table was introduced in MariaDB 5.2.0 as part of the User Statistics feature.

The Information Schema INDEX_STATISTICS table shows statistics on index usage and makes it possible to do such things as locating unused indexes and generating the commands to remove them.

This is part of the User Statistics feature, which is not enabled by default.

It contains the following columns:

Field Type Notes
TABLE_SCHEMA VARCHAR(192) The schema (database) name.
TABLE_NAME VARCHAR(192) The table name.
INDEX_NAME VARCHAR(192) The index name (as visible in SHOW CREATE TABLE).
ROWS_READ INT(21) The number of rows read from this index.


SELECT * FROM information_schema.INDEX_STATISTICS 
WHERE TABLE_NAME = "author";
| books        | author     | by_name    |        15 |
