25.39.26 The INFORMATION_SCHEMA INNODB_TABLESPACES_BRIEF Table

The INNODB_TABLESPACES_BRIEF table provides space ID, name, path, flag, and space type metadata for file-per-table, general, undo, and system tablespaces.

INNODB_TABLESPACES provides the same metadata but loads more slowly because other metadata provided by the table, such as FS_BLOCK_SIZE, FILE_SIZE, and ALLOCATED_SIZE, must be loaded dynamically.

Space and path metadata is also provided by the INNODB_DATAFILES table.

The INNODB_TABLESPACES_BRIEF table has these columns:

Example

mysql> SELECT * FROM INFORMATION_SCHEMA.INNODB_TABLESPACES_BRIEF WHERE SPACE = 7;
+-------+---------+---------------+-------+------------+
| SPACE | NAME    | PATH          | FLAG  | SPACE_TYPE |
+-------+---------+---------------+-------+------------+
| 7     | test/t1 | ./test/t1.ibd | 16417 | Single     |
+-------+---------+---------------+-------+------------+
