Information Schema INNODB_FT_INDEX_TABLE Table

MariaDB starting with 10.0

The INNODB_FT_INDEX_TABLE table was added in MariaDB 10.0.

The Information Schema INNODB_FT_INDEX_TABLE table contains information about InnoDB fulltext indexes. To avoid re-organizing the fulltext index each time a change is made, which would be very expensive, new changes are stored separately and only integrated when an OPTIMIZE TABLE is run. See the INNODB_FT_INDEX_CACHE table.

The SUPER privilege is required to view the table, and it also requires the innodb_ft_aux_table system variable to be set.

It has the following columns:

ColumnDescription
WORDWord from the text of a column with a fulltext index. Words can appear multiple times in the table, once per DOC_ID and POSITION combination.
FIRST_DOC_IDFirst document ID where this word appears in the index.
LAST_DOC_IDLast document ID where this word appears in the index.
DOC_COUNTNumber of rows containing this word in the index.
DOC_IDDocument ID of the newly added row, either an appropriate ID column or an internal InnoDB value.
POSITIONPosition of this word instance within the DOC_ID, as an offset added to the previous POSITION instance.

Note that for OPTIMIZE TABLE to process InnoDB fulltext index data, the innodb_optimize_fulltext_only system variable needs to be set to 1. When this is done, and an OPTIMIZE TABLE statement run, the INNODB_FT_INDEX_CACHE table will be emptied, and the INNODB_FT_INDEX_TABLE table will be updated.

Examples

SELECT * FROM INNODB_FT_INDEX_TABLE;
Empty set (0.00 sec)

SET GLOBAL innodb_optimize_fulltext_only =1;
