MySQL 8.0 Reference Manual Including MySQL NDB Cluster 8.0

25.39.7 The INFORMATION_SCHEMA INNODB_CMP_PER_INDEX and INNODB_CMP_PER_INDEX_RESET Tables

The INNODB_CMP_PER_INDEX and INNODB_CMP_PER_INDEX_RESET tables provide status information on operations related to compressed InnoDB tables and indexes, with separate statistics for each combination of database, table, and index, to help you evaluate the performance and usefulness of compression for specific tables.

For a compressed InnoDB table, both the table data and all the secondary indexes are compressed. In this context, the table data is treated as just another index, one that happens to contain all the columns: the clustered index.

The INNODB_CMP_PER_INDEX and INNODB_CMP_PER_INDEX_RESET tables have these columns:

Example

mysql> SELECT * FROM INFORMATION_SCHEMA.INNODB_CMP_PER_INDEX\G
*************************** 1. row ***************************
  database_name: employees
     table_name: salaries
     index_name: PRIMARY
   compress_ops: 0
compress_ops_ok: 0
  compress_time: 0
 uncompress_ops: 23451
uncompress_time: 4
*************************** 2. row ***************************
  database_name: employees
     table_name: salaries
     index_name: emp_no
   compress_ops: 0
compress_ops_ok: 0
  compress_time: 0
 uncompress_ops: 1597
uncompress_time: 0
