MySQL / MariaDB Storage Engine

To see what storage engine is used by the server by default you can use the following command in the MySQL/MariaDB shell:

show variables like '%storage_engine';

You can view a list of supported engines using:

show engines\G;

To find out what storage engine your tables are using by schema use this command. You might want to filter by TABLE_SCHEMA to see a specific database.

from information_schema.tables;

You can view statistics about a particular engine using the following (adjust for the relevant engine):

show engine innodb status\G
