Starting from MySQL 5.5 and above the default storage engine was known as the InnoDB. In MySQL versions 5.5 and above if you do a “select @@innodb_version” you can see the version of the InnoDB, which is almost same as your MySQL version.
But in MySQL 5.6 and above I noticed 2 new tables by InnoDB. “innodb_index_stats” and “innodb_table_stats”. Both these tables contains the database and table names of all the newly created databases and tables.
The MySQL documentation explains these two tables as follows.
The persistent statistics feature relies on the internally managed tables in the mysql database, named innodb_table_stats and innodb_index_stats. These tables are set up automatically in all install, upgrade, and build-from-source procedures.
For injection purposes let’s take the “innodb_table_stats” table. Unfortunately InnoDB doesn’t store columns.
If you simply do “show tables in mysql” you can view this from your localhost.
