5.1.9 Server Status Variables

The MySQL server maintains many status variables that provide information about its operation. You can view these variables and their values by using the SHOW [GLOBAL | SESSION] STATUS statement (see Section 13.7.5.35, “SHOW STATUS Syntax”). The optional GLOBAL keyword aggregates the values over all connections, and SESSION shows the values for the current connection.

Many status variables are reset to 0 by the FLUSH STATUS statement.

This section provides a description of each status variable. For a status variable summary, see Section 5.1.5, “Server Status Variable Reference”.

The status variables have the meanings shown in the following list. For meanings of status variables specific to NDB Cluster, see Section 21.3.3.9.3, “NDB Cluster Status Variables”.
