The information_schema is a read-only database provided by MySQL and MariaDB servers and contains information about the database system itself. It is a virtual database created entirely in memory. The information_schema provides access to metadata about various database objects such as tables, views, columns, indexes, triggers, procedures and events. Information about the structure of a database or metadata about the server configuration, performance metrics, etc. can be queried.
Uses of the information_schema:
Listing of databases and tables on the server.
Information about columns and data types of a table.
Information about indexes and foreign key constraints.
Analyzing server performance and resource usage statistics.
The content of the information_schema may not always reflect the current status of the server.
