The following SHOW statements can be extended by using a WHERE clause and a LIKE clause to refine the results:

As with a regular SELECT, the WHERE clause can be used for the specific columns returned, and the LIKE clause with the regular wildcards.

Examples

MariaDB [test]> SHOW TABLES;
+----------------------+
| Tables_in_test       |
+----------------------+
| animal_count         |
| animals              |
| are_the_mooses_loose |
| aria_test2           |
| t1                   |
| view1                |
+----------------------+

Showing the tables beginning with a only.

MariaDB [test]> SHOW TABLES WHERE Tables_in_test LIKE 'a%';
+----------------------+
| Tables_in_test       |
+----------------------+
| animal_count         |
| animals              |
| are_the_mooses_loose |
| aria_test2           |
+----------------------+

Variables whose name starts with aria and with a valued of greater than 8192:

MariaDB [test]> SHOW VARIABLES WHERE Variable_name LIKE 'aria%' AND Value >8192;
+------------------------------+---------------------+
| Variable_name                | Value               |
+------------------------------+---------------------+
| aria_checkpoint_log_activity | 1048576             |
| aria_log_file_size           | 1073741824          |
| aria_max_sort_file_size      | 9223372036853727232 |
| aria_pagecache_buffer_size   | 134217728           |
| aria_sort_buffer_size        | 134217728           |
+------------------------------+---------------------+

Shortcut, just returning variables whose name begins with aria.

MariaDB [test]> SHOW VARIABLES LIKE 'aria%';
+------------------------------------------+---------------------+
| Variable_name                            | Value               |

| aria_checkpoint_log_activity             | 1048576             |
| aria_force_start_after_recovery_failures | 0                   |
