MySQL Information Schema  /  INFORMATION_SCHEMA InnoDB Tables  /  The INFORMATION_SCHEMA INNODB_FT_CONFIG Table

5.9 The INFORMATION_SCHEMA INNODB_FT_CONFIG Table

The INNODB_FT_CONFIG table provides metadata about the FULLTEXT index and associated processing for an InnoDB table.

This table is empty initially. Before querying it, set the value of the innodb_ft_aux_table system variable to the name (including the database name) of the table that contains the FULLTEXT index; for example test/articles.

For related usage information and examples, see InnoDB INFORMATION_SCHEMA FULLTEXT Index Tables.

The INNODB_FT_CONFIG table has these columns:

  • KEY

    The name designating an item of metadata for an InnoDB table containing a FULLTEXT index.

    The values for this column might change, depending on the needs for performance tuning and debugging for InnoDB full-text processing. The key names and their meanings include:

    • optimize_checkpoint_limit: The number of seconds after which an OPTIMIZE TABLE run stops.

    • synced_doc_id: The next DOC_ID to be issued.

    • stopword_table_name: The database/table name for a user-defined stopword table. The VALUE column is empty if there is no user-defined stopword table.

    • use_stopword: Indicates whether a stopword table is used, which is defined when the FULLTEXT index is created.

  • VALUE

    The value associated with the corresponding KEY column, reflecting some limit or current value for an aspect of a FULLTEXT index for an InnoDB table.

Example

mysql> SELECT * FROM INFORMATION_SCHEMA.INNODB_FT_CONFIG;
+---------------------------+-------------------+
| KEY                       | VALUE             |
+---------------------------+-------------------+
| optimize_checkpoint_limit | 180               |
| synced_doc_id             | 0                 |
| stopword_table_name       | test/my_stopwords |
| use_stopword              | 1                 |
+---------------------------+-------------------+
