MySQL 8.0 Reference Manual  /  ...  /  The INFORMATION_SCHEMA INNODB_DATAFILES Table

25.39.9 The INFORMATION_SCHEMA INNODB_DATAFILES Table

The INNODB_DATAFILES table provides data file path information for InnoDB file-per-table and general tablespaces.

For related usage information and examples, see Section 15.14.3, “InnoDB INFORMATION_SCHEMA Schema Object Tables”.

Note

The INFORMATION_SCHEMA FILES table reports metadata for InnoDB tablespace types including file-per-table tablespaces, general tablespaces, the system tablespace, the global temporary tablespace, and undo tablespaces.

The INNODB_DATAFILES table has these columns:

  • SPACE

    The tablespace ID.

  • PATH

    The tablespace data file path. If a file-per-table tablespace is created in a location outside the MySQL data directory, the path value is a fully qualified directory path. Otherwise, the path is relative to the data directory.

Example

mysql> SELECT * FROM INFORMATION_SCHEMA.INNODB_DATAFILES WHERE SPACE = 57\G
*************************** 1. row ***************************
SPACE: 57
 PATH: ./test/t1.ibd
