INNODB_BUFFER_PAGE_LRU table holds
information about the pages in the
buffer pool, in particular
how they are ordered that determines which pages to
evict from the buffer pool
when it becomes full.
For related usage information and examples, see Section 14.15.3, “InnoDB INFORMATION_SCHEMA Buffer Pool Tables”.
INNODB_BUFFER_PAGE_LRU table can
introduce significant performance overhead. Do not query this
table on a production system unless you are aware of the
performance impact that your query may have and have determined
it to be acceptable. To avoid impacting performance, reproduce
the issue you want to investigate on a test instance and query
INNODB_BUFFER_PAGE_LRU table on the test

This table is primarily useful for expert-level performance monitoring, or when developing performance-related extensions for MySQL.
You must have the
PROCESS privilege to
query this table.
Querying this table can require MySQL to allocate a large block of contiguous memory, more than 64 bytes time the number of active pages in the buffer pool. This allocation could potentially cause an out-of-memory error, especially for systems with multi-gigabyte buffer pools.
Querying this table requires MySQL to lock the data structure representing the buffer pool while traversing the LRU list, which can reduce concurrency, especially for systems with multi-gigabyte buffer pools.
When tables, table rows, partitions, or indexes are deleted,
associated pages remain in the buffer pool until space is
required for other data. The
INNODB_BUFFER_PAGE_LRU table reports
information about these pages until they are evicted from the
buffer pool. For more information about how the
InnoDB manages buffer pool data, see
Section 8.10.1, “The InnoDB Buffer Pool”.
