Information Schema INNODB_SYS_INDEXES Table

The Information Schema INNODB_SYS_INDEXES table contains information about InnoDB indexes.

The PROCESS privilege is required to view the table.

It has the following columns:

Column Description
INDEX_ID A unique index identifier.
NAME Index name, lowercase for all user-created indexes, or uppercase for implicitly-created indexes; PRIMARY (primary key), GEN_CLUST_INDEX (index representing primary key where there isn't one), ID_IND, FOR_IND (validating foreign key constraint) , REF_IND.
TABLE_ID Table identifier, matching the value from INNODB_SYS_TABLES.TABLE_ID.
TYPE Numeric type identifier; one of 0 (secondary index), 1 (clustered index), 2 (unique index), 3 (primary index), 32 (full-text index).
N_FIELDS Number of columns in the index. GEN_CLUST_INDEX's have a value of 0 as the index is not based on an actual column in the table.
PAGE_NO Index B-tree's root page number. -1 (unused) for full-text indexes, as they are laid out over several auxiliary tables.
SPACE Tablespace identifier where the index resides. 0 represents the InnoDB system tablespace, while any other value represents a table created in file-per-table mode (see the innodb_file_per_table system variable). Remains unchanged after a TRUNCATE TABLE statement, and not necessarily unique.
