MySQL 5.5 Reference Manual Including MySQL NDB Cluster 7.2 Reference Guide Estimating ANALYZE TABLE Complexity for InnoDB Tables

ANALYZE TABLE complexity for InnoDB tables is dependent on:

Using these parameters, an approximate formula for estimating ANALYZE TABLE complexity would be:

innodb_stats_sample_pages * number of indexed columns in a table * number of partitions

Typically, the greater the resulting value, the greater the execution time for ANALYZE TABLE.

For more information about the innodb_stats_sample_pages configuration parameter, see Section 14.11.10, “Configuring Optimizer Statistics for InnoDB”.
