SHOW PLUGINS output has these columns:

  • Name

    The name used to refer to the plugin in statements such as INSTALL PLUGIN and UNINSTALL PLUGIN.

  • Status

    The plugin status, one of ACTIVE, INACTIVE, DISABLED, or DELETED.

  • Type

    The type of plugin, such as STORAGE ENGINE, INFORMATION_SCHEMA, or AUTHENTICATION.

  • Library

    The name of the plugin shared library file. This is the name used to refer to the plugin file in statements such as INSTALL PLUGIN and UNINSTALL PLUGIN. This file is located in the directory named by the plugin_dir system variable. If the library name is NULL, the plugin is compiled in and cannot be uninstalled with UNINSTALL PLUGIN.

  • License

    How the plugin is licensed; for example, GPL.

For plugins installed with INSTALL PLUGIN, the Name and Library values are also registered in the mysql.plugin system table.

For information about plugin data structures that form the basis of the information displayed by SHOW PLUGINS, see Section 24.2, “The MySQL Plugin API”.

Plugin information is also available from the INFORMATION_SCHEMA .PLUGINS table. See Section 21.14, “The INFORMATION_SCHEMA PLUGINS Table”.
