MySQL 5.7 Reference Manual  /  ...  /  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 Section 14.16.4, “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.


    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.


| KEY                       | VALUE             |
| optimize_checkpoint_limit | 180               |
| synced_doc_id             | 0                 |
| stopword_table_name       | test/my_stopwords |
| use_stopword              | 1                 |
