4.7 Server Status

Server status provides an overview of MySQL administration information, such as a server's main settings, the location (or state) of the relevant server directories, the current server features, server SSL certificate details, and server authentication keys. Each database connection in the view hierarchy includes a Server Status entry under MySQL Administration. After opening the server-status editor, you can switch back to your notebook or script editor and then reopen the status information by selecting its entry from the Editor list.
